I know that at the moment I am the 'all', but I really hope lots of people I know will get on board and support me in this latest mission!
My first mission, one of at least 4 I would think, is two fold- Firstly I plan to eat clean for the first 2 weeks of this personal 12 week challenge. And part two is to complete the remaining 10 weeks by eating clean at LEAST 6 days out of seven. I'll explain all of this in a minute.
But firstly I am (scarily) making this my first publicly viewed blog to make myself accountable to others. Hopefully I can recruit at least 20 of my family and friends to watch my daily (hopefully) blog, add comments and encouragement, and generally keep an eye on how I am going. This SHOULD make me feel accountable should I not exercise or eat something that is not good for my body. So PLEASE, come on board and comment on how I am going!
I'm on day two today (only 82-and-a-half to go!). For the first two weeks I plan to:
* drink only water - at least 2L (ie. no alcohol) - this should be pretty easy for me as I usually only drink water and don't often drink alcohol
* have no white bread or pasta - rye/wheat free acceptable
* NO SUGAR - ugh - the hardest for a lollie junkie!!! But hopefully this will cure my addiction
* no junk food, fast food, cakes, biscuits - should be ok on this one
* no carbs at night - we all know carbs are for energy, so why have them after 6pm when most of us are winding down for the day? They will just store as fat!
I also plan to exercise daily. This is why I am hoping to record on my blog daily, to tell you all if I exercised and ate correctly :)
After the first 2 weeks, I aim to complete the above mentioned for the remaining 10 weeks but for at least 6 days out of 7. I will allow myself one day to eat/drink whatever I chose on the 7th day, if I want to.
So, I think that I will need to complete a few of these 'missions'. I have a goal of looking H-O-T by the time my family all meet in Bali at the end of January next year for my mum's birthday. I want to be able to buy clothes in Bali that fit the thin people!
Occasionally I will post a photo -ugh- I know! But what better way for you to see how things are going. I will add today's photos - front, side and rear (I am surprised I fitted on the camera lens!). I don't particularly like photos, but it all about accountability, right?
So, this is day 2! I am feeling really good! I even got my monthlys today with no cramping! (Sorry guys - not sure you really wanted to hear that!) I trained lower body yesterday and today I completed a whole body circuit. All yesterday and so far today, I have stuck to my eating guidelines. So far, so good.
Tomorrow I will post my measurements. I have already taken them (yesterday) but my ass is so sore right now from yesterday's training session that I don't want to move just yet...it hurts!!!
Please post comments/suggestions and tell me what you think!
