#ThinThursday is the brainchild of Sarah @RaraGiggles Check it out on twitter (#ThinThursday), it started with the usual talk of weigh loss for new years resolutions and a lot of the girls seemed to have the same sort of questions/ issues/ post xmas bloat going on, its good to know we’re all in the same boat and we can help, advise and motivate each other to stick with it and stay strong. Truth be known I happened to be online when the tweets were flying and asked could I be involved. Of course the girls welcomed me in and its nice to know I have their support to help me alongJ
Even if its just resisting having a biscuit with your tea or the extra push to get up of the couch in the evening and go for a brisk walk, all those little things add up to the bigger things.
And even if you aim to loose 1lb a week, all those one pounds add up with time (and god knows the time is flying by) you could be down a dress size by St. Patrick’s Day by just making wiser choices with food and exercise, this doesn’t mean that you have to starve or live the life of a social recluse, it just means that you have to be aware of what your eating and WHY your eating.
Why have I chosen to do#ThinThursday?
Well you all know my story at this stage! If not, check it out here.
I’m joining the girls with #ThinThursday because we all need the extra help and support and I’ll be watching Operation Transformation for tips and recipe’s also, aswell as sticking with my weekly Saturday weigh in’s, walking on my lunch break, going to at least 2 spinning classes a week, drinking 2 Litres of water, as much Pu-erh tea (zero calories) as I want, and not eating after 7pm.
I’ve also cut sugar completely from my diet as of Monday (07.01.13) I’m an all or nothing kinda girl, if I allow myself a treat at the moment, I’ll fail. I know that’s not for everyone but I’m at this long enough to know that this is how it must be for me.
