The 5% Challenge Starts

Saturday, March 17, 2012

Well the challenge has started with me weighing in at a weight I did not want to see again, but I am feeling much more positive at the moment so I am really going for the 5% and more!

The inserts have arrived, too early to tell if they are working but I will keep you updated and now more than 12 weeks since I saw my Doctor I have still not heard from the hospital about seeing a consultant for the PF.

Tomorrow is Mother's Day in the UK (for all my American friends) we are having my PIL over for lunch (Roast Beef and all the trimmings!) but tonight the DD's are cooking - I am not sure it will be very good calorie wise, but I have been very careful through the rest of the day and have been on a 26 mile cycle ride this afternoon. The weather forecast was for sunny periods, they fogot to mention the torrential downpour of freezing rain that happened in the middle of the route out. Weird thing was it was dry for the rest of the journey there and back! Just this one part of about 1.5 miles that was absolutley soaking!

So just got out of a lovely hot bath and off to do my nails ( a very rare occurence!) as I am not allowed in my kitchen at all today, YD warned it would horrify me if I saw it earlier LOL.

Have a good weekend everyone!

    Aww what did they cook for you? I hope you enjoyed lots!

I love it when you can lierally go from one place that is raining to the next place that is dry. I find it a truly amazing miracle of nature. Deep, LOL.

Best of luck on your 5% challenge. You'll do great! :) And thank you for my blog comment! I hate it when people ruin a first experience... lol. Oh well I'm over it now. :) x

    That bike ride is awesome! How long does that take you? So glad you have an alternate exercise until the feet are better.
Blessings this Mother's Day! Martha

    Hope they work!

My boyfriend experienced some aches in our thighs, calf... due to walking at a more correct posture for him as he has fallen arches.

So do give them the time to help even if they do cause some "side effects" like that!

    I've just got home from airport - spent this week in London - and got out of the hot bath myself emoticon

Still it's already real spring in UK. Everything blossoms and the grass is green.
