NOT a morning person!

It was with great eagerness (not) that I set my alarm to go off at 6am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to get up and go for my walk this week. 6:15am on Tuesday and Thursday to do some crappy pushups and crunches and all things that make your muscles sore.

I managed Monday morning! Yay! Because if you can't JFDI on the FIRST DAY of the 12 Week Body Transformation, you might need to rethink things:

Being Canberra in winter, it was cold. -5C cold in fact. But me and the dog JFDI! So proud of us.

Got up on Tuesday morning at 6:15am and did aforesaid crappy pushups, crunches and other "toning" thingies. Tick.

Alarm went off at 6am on Wednesday morning. So cold. So dark. I shut my eyes for just one second and next minute it was 6:45am!!! Oops! Epic fail.

So I set my alarm for 6am on Thursday morning to make up for it. I think we can all agree that I am NOT a morning person and that a beanie is a great idea:

Hubby decided to come with me (joy). I was OK after about 10 minutes when I had woken up enough not to grunt at him. -6C according to my phone and -7.6C according to the BOM, which was the coldest August morning in Canberra for 20 years. Brr. But we JFDI. So proud of us.

 I look much better after a walk, Mish breakfast (muesli and berries), a shower, work clothes, brush hair and makeup!

I kind of missed Weigh-In Wednesday as well, so weigh-in Thursday brought this: 82.25kg! A loss of 700g!! Woot! 

Yay! I like it when things work :-) I have pretty much followed the meals and avoided all junk food for the week. A stressful week at work saw a couple of wines on Thursday and Friday nights, but only two on each occasion. Real life intrudes, but that's OK.

We had friends over for dinner yesterday, so my treat meal was PORK BELLY (nom nom nom) and a few glasses of wine. But the rest of the day was clean, so hopefully it didn't derail me too much. Now about to print off recipes and shopping lists and go for my weekly worship at the house of Aldi. See ya next week!

  1. Sorry but I am laughing so hard at the morning photo (the before, not the after). And good for hubby going along. So right you've done it on the coldest morning ever, it's going to get easier from here on in, right? Right???
