Squirrel 4

I hope everyone had a good new year. We as usual had a quiet one, I was in bed at 10pm but got woken up at midnight with the usual fireworks and horns going off in the neighbourhood. New years day I had a BBQ with my parents which was a nice relaxing afternoon.

Today was the start of my new life. Today is the day I have committed to get this job done once and for all. I want to be in the position this time next year and feel satisfied with my results have no regrets.

I'm not going to bore you all ( as well as me) with a list of what I'm going to do and how I'm going to do it. I want it to be as simple as possible.So to follow the name of blog it will simply be:-


That's it, no mind blowing revelation there! lol

I will be upping the ante on the exercise front as it has always been the most challenging aspect of the weight loss caper for me. I did my first session today back at the gym. I did 2 x 15 sets on the weight circuit and only managed 10 minutes on the treadmill. I started to get pains in my chest which went up to my neck, so I decided to stop just in case.

I'll be heading back again in the morning rather than the afternnon like today to avoid the heat, as it was quite hot today.

Oh, almost forgot, I weighed in today with a gain of 3kg (6.6 lbs) which I totally deserve and to be quite frank, I expected it to be more, so in one way I'm relieved.

It's onwards and upwards from here I will not be seeing that figure again!

3 kilos gain sounds about average for a xmas gain... sux hey..... easy to put on takes weeks to get off sometimes...
