I had a solid plan, a weight-loss buddy lined up, a commencement date and some goals set. I was ready. Ding, ding, ding. Round four.
But then, when the commencement date came, I was pretty half-arsed about it. Right from Day 1. I really don't know why?
I ate much better than I have been, but still too much (and I failed to write it all down).
I exercised a couple of times, but less than I
The scales revealed how meagre my efforts have been. A loss of 200g. Hmmm... not really encouraging!
I take some comfort in the fact that it is a loss.
I remembered an old lesson from this: that if you almost follow the program, you almost lose weight.
I am looking forward though and have made adjustments to the plan for Week 2 (which started on Sunday).
Take a deep breath and press on. It is a marathon, not a sprint. I want lasting habit change.
It isn't easy, but it has to be done.
How are your recent efforts?
* Thanks again to all of you who sponsored me! Not only did we raise $145 for the Breast Cancer Network, the fact that I was 'doing it for you' kept me motivated during the 8km run and I managed to complete it in a time that exceeded my expectations. Yay! I reckon I will tackle the City to Surf in August next. Are you game?
