New week, new phase, new me! Well it’s the home stretch now. I have to say I’m finding out a whole lot about myself through this process. The biggest thing that I’ve discovered is that my life has a total lack of balance. And what I mean by this is balance in how often I exercise (I’m extreme, all or nothing), balance in my food choices (I’m either really ‘naughty’ or ridiculously ‘disciplined’). So I need to bring more balance into my life I’ve discovered. At least when it comes to diet and exercise.
Started my day with a lovely 1hour walk to work. I was told today if you walk for an hour it’s about 10,000 steps, so that fits in perfectly with the boyer exercise plan. It was a great start to the day, breathing in the fresh air, being part of the hustle and bustle of the busy bee workers heading off on their day of work. It was a nice experience. Pretty boring walking on your own though if your music choices are not that great. Think I might have to download an audio book to keep me company – or how about a subliminal audio telling me maintain a balance in my life – mmmmm we will think about that one.
Fiona is looking fantastic at the moment! Everytime I see her she inspires me to keep going. After our weekend check-in “How Did You Go On The Weekend?”, she’s done another weigh in, and she has lost a grand total of 6kg’s so far! OMG – WOWWWWW! The woman is a machine. I couldn’t be more impressed. She is totally sticking to the rules rigidly, mouthful by mouthful, not even one thing that is not on our list has passed her lips. Gawd, how do I get some of that determination?!
So after a great start to the day, had my usual coffee(s), soup, egg, salad, tuna, veggie juice, avocado, onion bread (that’s bread made only of dehydrated onions & seeds – no wheat or flour or gluten or anything nasty) – it’s delicious! All in all a pretty successful cruizey diet day.
Well at least until bookclub tonight! Now we meet once a month and it’s a very social group is our bookclub, so we like to partake in the odd bottle(s) of vino, cheese, crackers, chocolate – you get it, all the good things in life. Well I managed to hold off on the vino. Didn’t even have any chocolate. By this time I’m feeling pretty proud of myself – at least until I had that first nibble of cheese – OMG that was the end of me!! I don’t know what came over me! Grrrrrr so annoyed with myself – and with only 10 days to go.
I’m wondering if this is the reason that “Fiona The Machine” has managed to shed 6kgs in 20 days compared to my meagre 2kgs in 20 days. Mmmmmm so the proof is in the pudding. Or is that the proof is in not eating the pudding?!
