I was in Risa for about ten days. Ten hard working days but also ten relaxing days by the sea.
This is my house
and this is my veranda, a place for relaxing and dreaming
Another view of the house
Another nice place for relaxing and dreaming, when the work in the field is finished!
The front entrance after the rain
The road to the sea
Hibiscus in my garden
The Nafpaktos beach with the Rio-Antirio bridge
The port of Nafpaktos
The old town
The famous sunsets of western Greece. Can you find where the sea ends and where the sky begins?
This is the place I spend the most of my holidays. I have to work hard to keep it in a good situation, I also need money to spend there (that's why I rent the house from May to October), but I love it and I like to be there.
Back home now, working and cleaning and preparing the house for the Christmas holiday, I decided to prepare also my self . These are the last weeks of the BLC challenge, so I have to be more consistent,persistent and active.
I spend a whole morning to organize my time for the next 3 weeks, until 4 December, when I have to go back to Risa to pick up oranges and tangerines.
This is my plan,stuck in the door of my library to see it every morning
I want to go strong for the last weeks of the challenge, so here I am ready to go!

10 min de-cluttering: Look the picture of my cellar! It took me much more than 10 minutes!
Plan your meals for the week: I will follow a pumpkin diet. Delicious!
Plan your workouts for the week: I cannot do this because: I am sick and my daughter goes to the hospital on Wednesday for a tonsil surgery . So I will do my best without planing anything.
What helps me to stay focused? Reading everyday our chat thread,posting everyday and having always in mind my pictures at the end of this challenge.
Set a goal for the week end: As I said I was on vacation for the week end, so my goal was to eat 4 meals during each day and not eating too much on every meal with the excuse that I am on vacation. I was thinking all day the "all or nothing approach" and I am proud to say that
About vision board ......... ...I have done nothing!
And the 15+min of me time: I was out of Athens, in the most beautiful town of Greece with my best friends for 2.5 days. What a fantastic me time!...
For this week end I have a score of 2100 points!!!

It is so hard to get on track when you are out of it...
You find excuses, you say I am tired, I donít have time, I will start tomorrow, I have to clean my house and after that I go for a swim (but you never go because after the heavy cleaning, you feel exhausted).
You do the same with food. I can only eat a little bit (and you empty a whole plate), it is so delicious, how can I resist, tomorrow I will change my attitude against food, it is simply wonderful, just a piece of cake, whatís wrong with a glass of wine e.t.c.
Thatís the story of my life! Tomorrow I willÖ..and the days succeed one another and I realized that I am FAT for the last 18 years!
I donít want to be FAT anymore.
I donít want to have PAIN anymore.
I donít want the CANCER knock my door once more.
I donít want to buy XXXL clothes.
I donít want to be slave of the food.
I donít want to die in my couch.
To walk all over Greece
To buy new, nice clothes
To walk the authentic Marathon of 2014 in Athens
To dance whenever I am in the mood
To sleep without pain
To wear nice shoes
To walk all over Europe with my camera
To hear my children saying that they are proud of me.
WHAT I HAVE TO DO TO ACHIEVE THESE:
Think all the above!
Exercise first thing in the morning
Cooking second thing in the morning
Do my morning and before bed routine
Put my feelings aside and use logic and reasoning.
MY DESIRES AND MY FEELINGS ALWAYS CHANGE AFTER A GOOD WORKOUT!!!
