|Sorry about the pic - the slate coloured fitbit - I look like I've either just come out of the hospital or Glastonbury|
Speaking of which I have lost 2lbs but given I put on 6lbs (that's a lot much more than last year but we couldn't get out it rained practically non-stop) nothing to be celebrated.
I also have my Zaggora wear (which I did receive free to review) which I shoe horned on today, took pics and will give you the 14 day challenge result. My husband had the honor of taking the photos today so hopefully they will look better than my pathetic selfie attempts.

I personally never start to re-focus on my diet on January 1st. I think its a stupid date to start any diet. You are still well and truly in holiday mode and have probably eaten and drunk lots the night before. There are still lots of left overs and the weather is generally dire. There is some talk on facebook of waiting until next week when all treats have been eaten. That's fine if you're not that fat but seriously you need to get going before that and if you do polish the left overs (of which there are lots here) then you will just increase your net gain.
The kids are all back to school tomorrow. Yay! I decided to do my housework today - bad mother alert. I thought sod it I've done lots with them - farm, walks, woods, games, baking etc etc and whilst some will want to cherish the last day I want to have 3 hours to myself tomorrow. Genius I say. So tomorrow once buddy has been dropped off its pilates and weights and lots of faffing with my vegas photo album book.
I have asked my friend Cath to write a guest post about her fairly recent exercise regime of running. You may recall she had a battle with breast cancer and the most positive outcome of this is that she implemented a training regime when previously she had none. I hope it inspires you as it does for me. Also my sister (yes you will be doing this!) is going to give us an account of her diet journey. My sister is overweight and has been for a long time. My other sister (her twin) gives her a hard time in a Sargent Major type of way (she is fit and healthy) and so far it hasn't had any impact. This time may be different I feel.
I have heard of a few 40 something health scares recently. I think you can get away with lots when you're younger but as you head on up to 40 and beyond illnesses and what not do start to creep up. I think if you can get from 40-50 relatively health scare free then you're doing well. I think diet and exercise plays a huge part doesn't it? I don't want to have one to make me re-think what I consume. So lets crack the whip this year.
I'm looking forward to continuing with the diet 1970's style. I'm going to post more pics this year just to give me some added pressure. So stay tuned for the Zaggorra challenge pics and I have a 40th party to go to on 25th - dress pics to follow!
Until next time....
