Kick up the ass

The 6 of us (and the 2 dogs of course) went for an extremely cold 2 hour plus walk this afternoon. We were well bundled up against the cold though and warmed through by the massive hills...

D and Minty sheltering from the wind while Vicky fed us home made bread roll sandwiches....mmmm

Me, Vicky and Lisa.

For various reasons, I've been a bit half hearted about dropping the weight this week. Partly because I didn't pile on the lbs over Christmas and new Year so I felt a bit smug and thought that I did'nt need to try..... Partly also because I'm busy at work and partly (as I'm being honest) because I'm still reacting to the fallout of my bust-up with D.

This is not right. I'm playing with fire if I start to think I'm anywhere near having this cracked. So - I had a good hard think about what I want and what I'm willing to do to get it. and I concluded that I want to be a slim size 14. Not a 12 (yet), but a fit and healthy size 14. That means dropping between 21 and 28 lbs I reckon (although I'll be able to squeeze into a few 14's before then).

So - back to proper LL next week and back to classes on Wednesday night. And back to exercise on a regular basis.

Short Term Goals (next week):

  1. Do abstinence properly next week, starting Monday (D is away up to Aberdeen tomorrow afternoon so I'm going to cook us a nice meal tomorrow before he goes).

  2. Go to LL class on Wednesday evening.

  3. Go running tomorrow (Sunday) and at least 4 times next week (including 2 personal training sessions).
  4. Do not weigh yourself at all.

Medium Term Goals (2009):

  1. Get down to a slim and fit size 14 and stay there until at least next Christmas.
  2. Sign up for a 10km race sometime this summer and train for it.

That ought'a do it.

Ha! Loved your comment on my blog. There's no way I'd keep up with you on a run. I want to be a slim size 14 too so I really empathise with exactly what you mean by that. I reckon I've got further to go to get to that though but will use you as (th)inspiration.
