New Year Countdown - Day 24

Ahem. Yes I'm back doing this again.

It didn't quite work for the last one did it?? But hey - we all make mistakes and besides, it's the new year. A new start, a new beginning.

So, one of my resolutions goals for this year was to lose the 8 kilos that I have piled on since the beginning of 2008. More specifically since I got married. And since I never thought that I would ever gain weight (Pfft. Me go all auntie-shaped??) this realization after a long year has been one that has haunted me and made me despair at the same time.

My current aim is to lose 3 kilos by the 22nd of February, with a check in at the end of January. Why this date? - it's my birthday and I think that if I can look and feel fabulous by then, I'll be on my way to losing the rest of the weight.

Like Rads did with her countdown - I am going to list the foods that I ate and the exercise I did for that day. According to Calorie King I should be eating around 1200 calories a day and doing 30mins of exercise if I want to see results. I usually go over and don't exercise enough, so that's something I want to change. Right now I am more focused on changing my diet and exercising regularly that I'm not too fussed if I go over a bit. Plus we all need treats now and then :P

But here's to a new start:

Looking at that, I still need to drink more water and cut down on the sugar. And I snacked heaps. It was hot and I had a craving for something sweet so I had some lemon sorbet :P And it's mango season - how could I not??? And then in the evening, Evs made a delicious hot chocolate.

Went to the gym for 2 hours. Since I am still at home for this week, I was able to make the weekly Pilates class. Shame it's on not on later or more often. Today I actually feel a lot better and I'm lot more aware of my posture :)

Spin class always makes me sweat and getting back into it after the holiday break, I pushed myself a little harder. I find that the girl who takes the Monday class works us harder than the Wednesday class.

Tomorrow will be a better day :)
