|Emma doing the honours with the before and after pics. One day I will know how to pose properly but until that day this is how I roll as the youngsters say!|

I have had a headache today and have felt hungry since I started getting precise on Monday. I'm sure this will pass and I will get through the first two weeks. In addition, the whole can't function without food is a bit of a modern day myth isn't it? I know this isn't ideal but prisoners of war built the Burma Railway on little or no food. I'm certainly not advocating starving and the brutal treatment of others - merely pointing out the human body is capable of doing a great deal with very little in the fuel tank.
So, to put myself out there - I asked Em to take some photo's today so that we can compare at the end of April. I am also excited to say that I shall be comparing my own calorie counting to that of the meals prepared for you by www.dietchef.co.uk. In the month of May I will try out their 1,200 calorie controlled plan (and no shakes! yay!) compared to my own. I like the sound of it as it fits in with my own 1970's concept - 3 x meals a day and a couple of snacks. They've just done all the hard work for you. The breakfasts are porridge and other healthy calorie controlled options, lunch mainly soup (which I have been doing in any event) and in the evening a meal with your own veg. You can also eat fruit and drink tea and coffee. I will, of course, do before and after pics for May and let you all know how it fits in with my lifestyle etc.
In other news, I really need to sort my hair out! Maybe I should start straightening it - I've always had it 'curly' although in these pictures its more frizzy. I also, for the 3rd week running, set the alarm for 6 am and did 45 minutes of Pilates. This is unheard of - to cut short my sleep by one hour - I must mean business!
Finally, my sister (Sharon - not Nessa who needs to give us all an update on her low carb diet) has written a great post about running. It'll be coming up very soon.
Ta ta for now
