It was very slow though - we came up behind a visiting party so have to wait on every tee. Luckily the weaher was great and we met some nice people to chat to.
A gorgeous par 3 - love holes like this - scenic and clever. Oh, and Rich posing nicely...
I'm very, very pleased that I have stuck it out for a whole week and exercised and eaten less mindfully during that time. The chart has been religiously updated and makes pleasant reading:
Weight - I lost 2.8 lbs (my scales are digital so I've decided to go to the decimal point even though I'm aware that they're pretty meaningless!).
Exercise - I've done some every day. Swimming, a run, personal training, a long walk with an old work colleague last weekend (Cocker Central - it was fab!), golf, dancing and swimming again.
Eating - not done anything special, just cut out the extras and cut back a bit on the booze.
So, what next? I'm sure next week will be a bit harder so I will have to keep up the exercise and tighten up the eating side of things a bit more but I have made a start and I'm proud of myself for that. Next week I should step into new territory (well, not new but territory that I haven't been in for a few months) so I'm determined to get a couple more lbs off and see a real change.
I like the fact that my P2P challenge is only short - it helps my chimp (remember her) take it on knowing that it's only a month. Sure, I'll probably do something else after that but I can do anything for a month. Short term effort, real result (hopefully).
I'm so pleased with myself for doing this. It is great knowing that I'm trying to get and stay healthy FOR ME. Not as a ploy or a strategy, not because I have to, not to get a bully off my back, not out of fear or hope for a better tomorrow. Just for the simple reason that I want to be healthier and to fit into smaller clothes. And to know that, while I'm doing this, Rich still loves and fancies me every bit as much and will probably hardly notice the stone once its gone anyway. Last night, I happily snaffled a chocolate off him and he teased me about being on a diet but I knew there was no edge to the teasing, no judging - what a refreshing change.
