Consistency is KEY!

Waiting for Gallbladder removal so low fat... ugh.

Since I've been gone I've gained back some of my weight but I did complete a FULL marathon! It almost broke me but now I'm starting slowly again, starting to walk regularly and doing lots of swimming.

I know what works and what doesn't but my lack of consistency always lets me down. This is my focus for fall.

I am being more realistic with my goals and I am hoping to get to my long term goal by fall ...

A quick history:

I'm English but now live in Canada.

I have two gorgeous daughters, have moved with my family into a renovation project and I have a part time job. I don't seem to have time to do anything these days!

I have body issues: I am missing out as I don't like my photo being taken and I am not in more than a couple of pictures of my children. I hate to see myself in photos. The one of me with "Elvis" was taken a few years ago and I like it because there's no double-chin!

I found out in April 2012 that I'm pre-diabetic and have high cholesterol. I had bloods taken after being low carb for about 5 weeks and was no longer pre-diabetic! Woo hoo!!! I now have to work on my cholesterol. My failings are on weekends when my good work all week falls by the wayside and I end up just mostly maintaining... I need to focus and stick with it on weekends!
