Day 7 -94

I couldn't post yesterday because the storms were so wild that the powere was knocked out from 2pm 'til after 7pm! Luckily I was out at my weigh-in so at least had some light and heat for a couple of hours. I can now report with great pride and self-satisfaction that I lost 15lbs last week! I'm really pleased with that and hope that it is the beginning of a long line of happy Thursday evenings.

Group was not too bad - we did an exercise where we talked about what we think of ourselves - what would we be if we were a colour, a vehicle, a shoe, an animal or a famous character. For various reasons I chose red, a Volvo, a trendy trainer, a labrador and Edwina Currie! Basically, I'm not totally down on myself but I'm not exactly pleased with me either.

Our task for this week is to set some goals. These should be Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic and Timed - ie. SMART goals. And they should also be written down.

So, here goes:-
  1. Before next Thursday I will have contacted Cat Raynor to see if she will take me on as a personal trainer and, if possible, will have arranged my first session.
  2. I will have finished all the filing and shredding before D comes back from the rig so that we're ready to deal with the financial restructure.
  3. I will not cheat, at all, while doing to 100 day foundation part of this diet.

I think that's enough to be getting on with.

You know what's good about you? Your attention to detail with your spelling, capitalisation and punctuation.

It's an extremely positive character trait (in my eyes).

I'm a lawyer - it's heartbreaking but you can't avoid it. When I do spot a typo (and there are loads) I have to edit it fact I'm fighting against that trait by deliberately leaving a couple in, but it hurts!
