OK, I am taking on a challenge of being 100% on TFR for all of May (and maybe beyond, we'll see; small steps!). Who's with me?? I've been so disgusted at myself for yo-yoing so much over the last few months (I'm back up to 11 st 12lbs now, having hit a lowest weight of 10 st 9 only in February!), but I've decided to let go of that disgust, leave the past in the past and start fresh. I'm sick of the way I am at life lately anyway, I have a number of things to take to task. I have a PhD thesis to finish (long overdue, should have finished last year), LOADS of knitting projects to finish, loads of books I've been meaning to get around to reading, loads of admin stuff I'd let pile up, etc. I also have a boy on my mind, and I want to be slimmer, more productive and more confident before I talk to him about...stuff. I also got the bad news that I suffer from Reflux Laryngitis - a type of upper-esophagus acid reflux which affects the throat and causes your voicebox and vocal cords to swell, rendering your voice husky and lumpy and sore and Marge Simpson-like. As a singer, this is making me incredibly unhappy! I've learned that among the things that help with this are 1) losing weight and 2) improving your diet! So, hopefully LT will help me regain my vocal strength. I'm going to post in here every day for the 31 days of May, and post my achievements; whether I was 100% on TFR, whether I completed certain tasks, did any exercise, drank my water, got up early, got work done, reached deadlines, met milestones, etc. That way I'm liable to y'all and there'll be no cheating ;-) Wish me luck! And if anyone else feels like taking a similar challenge, join me!
