How is everyone going?
@ All Creatures your food looks amazing, Good on you for resisting the cakes - I find that soooo hard. I'm in Melb as well and I have to ssay it is veyr cold. I really need to go for a jog today but it looks so cold outside. I also have an exercise DVD that I can do but do you think I have tried to do it. Nope.
@ Eko, hope you are feeling less tired I once read some research that said that women who are UTD are generally programmed to think they need more food intake. On top of that when we are tired we are more programmed to look for high energy foods to keep us going. The article went onto say that education is the key around what women need when UTD, I think it was something about protein, moderate exercise and sleep. So those meal plans you are talking about sound the way to go. You can do it. I know you can. You need to head into that brain of yours and turn the internal junk food switch off. Then use your really good thinking strategy you suggested on an earlier thread.
AFM: i have started to fall off the badwagon and I am really worried I will have gained before weigh in. I have had a good reflect on it all and I have decided to joing the 12WBT that Michelle Bridges does. I think I need a more intensive program to keep me on track. As part of the challenge we have to tell people our commitment. So I thought I would jump on here and tell you. My commitment is to lose 10kilograms and to run a 10kilometre fun run. I know I can do it if I put my mind to it.
Hopefully I will be able to stay on track through this thread till it starts in a few weeks and lose some more of the weight I need too.
Hope people have been able to stay on track this week
