Well.. was it too good to be true!

Ok - so we are out in the big bad world of no restrictions!  How hard can it be!  I'm the perfect weight, feel amazing, compliments being flung at me left, right and centre.  Confidence is bursting through my pores... but the biggest challenge is going to the supermarket, corner shop, out to dinner.

With no restrictions now - other than I should have healthier choices springing to the front of my mind - temptation to the food addict is everywhere!

I think I was very very good for the first few weeks...

I did at my second review put on 8lbs!  I was panicking...  Panic not - as I had actually gained 6lbs of muscle and only 2lb of fat and was still very much in proportion...  now I did skip away thinking - yippee - I can eat naughtily...

Yep you guessed it - I did not relent.

I'm sitting here today cursing at myself, angry, disappointed in myself that during the festive period I did virtually NO EXERCISE, INCREASED THE BAD FOOD 100% - and thought it would be OK...  Well it's not.  I feel sluggish, I'm not sleeping as well, my NEW clothes that I was so proud to get into are feeling the pinch.  Don't get me wrong - I still look amazing - but if I do not pull this under control I will very soon be back to the black scoop neck and stretchy waist trousers that were my uniform of necessity.

So today is the turning point.  I have my third appointment on 26 January - my daughter's 18th birthday.  Two weeks away.  Exercise is back on.  Healthy eating - no sugary foods - crisps - biscuits - plenty protein and fresh vegetables.  See if I can get back on track...

What I will take away from my two weeks of naughtiness is - it certainly was not worth it!  I certainly need to value myself and my health an awful lot higher than that.  So to my fellow dieters who maybe jumped ship in December - it is definitely time to rock that body again :) x
