Just 8 more days with Ma!

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Let me tell you, my greatest saboteur is my mother, and she has been staying with me for 6 days and leaves in 8 days ... now I KNOW that I decide what I eat and I decide to exercise, but breaking the habits of a lifetime doesn't come easily!

HOWEVER ... I DID manage to lose 1kg last week in spite of the Conference (where I blew out only on Sunday). This week, I've been lethargic because I've been unwell with an infected eye, but today I got back into exercise and kept within my calorie count. I am DETERMINED to drop another kilo this week, so I need to dig deep for the next few days.

The coolest thing is ... I KNOW I CAN DO THIS AND DO THIS EASILY!

I've been feeling flat for the last 3 days, and haven't been online as much as I normally am, but just writing this blog is encouraging me to remain steadfast. Once upon a time, I'd have quit ... but now, quitting would mean giving up on FUN! Ha! Me give up on fun? No way Jose! Especially the kind that only has healthy consequences!

So to my pals - THANK YOU for being here for me. I went to use the panic button yesterday, but got confused and gave up! I was in a daze ... its incredible how my brain turns to sludge when I don't care for myself properly.

One last thing re: sustainability. At the Conference, on Saturday morning at 6:30am, 17 of us participated in a bootcamp style workout ... today is the first day where I could walk without pain (the squats man!) ... I HATE BOOTCAMP STYLES because I hurt so much the day/s after and it puts me off exercising again. I so much prefer the zumba and SPARK strengths training, I never feel sore the next day because I stretch and don't burst blood vessels trying to complete exercises ... that type of training I can never sustain. So I am soooo happy with my programmes in here - my body shape is changing and I keep getting stronger ... slow and steady all the way!

Love to you all xx

    Good luck over the next 8 days. I find it very disruptive to my routine, to have visitors, no matter how much I love them. emoticon
    Congratulations for finding a way to stay strong and stick to your program.

    Great blog Sal!
    I've been wanting to try bootcamp for ages now, but everything I read has been putting me off it! I don't want to be in so much pain that I stop enjoying exercise, or I have to take days and days off working out to recover! What's the fun in that!? I'll stick with Zumba like you...fun and crazy hard! TICK!

    emoticon I totally empathise with you on the Mum situation! I'm sure my mum doesn't do it on purpose (I hope) but she is a massive saboteur. She's been in Ghana for a year, and will be back in April for 3 months, and I'm absolutely dreading it! emoticon I'm hoping by then I'll have my habits so ingrained that she won't be able to break them. Boy will I be needing your support then.
    Just 8 more days...you can great through that.

    emoticon on the 1kg loss! You are rocking this every week, and it makes me wanna stick on track too. So emoticon
