Week 1 - I Survived

Well I have survived Week 1 and even though the exercise nearly killed me I managed to do 4 of the 6 days of workouts and I am pretty proud of that. These were the workouts on the 12WBT site and were pretty demanding and at first nearly killed me, but I got though them and found that it got easier as the days went by.

I fell off the wagon and I was expecting this to happen. I was soooo tired that I didn't exercise on Tuesday or Friday, but Saturdays SSS I have done today on Sunday. So I didn't missed that 1!!!!

Tomorrows a new day and the start of week 2. Which means that I will work to stick to the 12WBT and try not to give in this week. Also will be interesting as I have done Saturdays workout today and now I will have to exercise for 7 days in a row. My own fault and I accept that!!!! I own my mistakes for the past week and I have accepted that I stuffed up and now I am moving on to have a better week this week.

The new job is starting to settle down for me physically as well and my feet are starting to get used to the walking and standing up for the time that I work. All in all things were a bit better this week and I hope that I find this coming week will be a little easier than last week.

I found that by not beating myself up over the mistakes for this week I am feeling much better within myself. I am happier for the exercise and the eating healthier is making me feel better too!!!!

I have a win for the week too as now I can fit into 2 different pairs of pants that I haven't worn for maybe 5 years.  They are no longer as shrunken as they used to be ( LOL ).

So I think that is all I need to address in this post and so will leave it there.

The Start is upon Me !!!

Well here I am again!  I have finished my first full week of my new job and have really been feeling that this is a physical job. I have had the up days and the DOWN days. The DOWN days have really been a test as I all I wanted to do was eat bad food and on Monday I did fall in a heap with a trip to Maccas. I really thought that I needed to do this and really enjoyed eating it, but the sadness afterwards was really surprising. I am now thinking more about why I did this, what I got out of this and now understand the some of the mind set lessons that is the 12WBT.

Tired, sore and just damn exhausted!!!! These are the excuses for the falling off 12WBT and the shame is that I had been really good with my breakfast, lunch and some of the dinners for this week. I really am going to have to toughen up at home in the evening with my husband and kids at night as they are a bad influence and I have been very weak and now realised that this is doing nothing for me, but putting me right back at the beginning again.

I can see the difference on the scales with the up and down by 100 to 200 grams. It sad to say that last week I was 300 grams from double digits and today I am back to 700 grams from the double digits. I am very frustrated with myself, but now I have put this down in my blog I can now move on and look forward to Monday's new start of the rest of my life.

Tomorrow I am going to do my fitness test and get my Week 1 food plan ready for my shopping list. On Sunday I am going for a walk with my 2 neices who are my 12WBTer's and a couple of other supporters and we will be trying to walk for 10 kms.

So I think that I have aired out this weeks issues and hopefully things will get a bit better when I really get started on Monday.

Good Luck to all the 12WBTers out there and don't forget - YOU ARE REALLY WORTH IT !!!!!!!

Until next time

I have a new Goal

So here I go again and as I said before I am not used to putting myself out there like this, but here is the next piece of my journey.

As I have been working my way through the pre-season tasks on the 12WBT and I have also been reading about other peoples journey and whilst reading a particular person's story I saw that she had done Tough Mudder and I have asked my 16 year old son if he was interested in doing Tough Mudder with me in 2 years when my son turns 18!!

I thought that this was a good goal for me to achieve and that even if there are stumbling blocks during my journey with 12BWT I have the chance to continue to do this life change again and again until I get it right.

So for all the people who are supporting me out there this is my declaration to make a damn bloody go of this and this is my commitment to myself and my son that I will be fit enough to get through Tough Mudder in 2 years.

Well I think that's all I have to say this time and until the next time.

See you all soon
