So I did something.
I pulled out "Losing the Last 5kg" by Michelle Bridges (Mum gave it to me for my birthday in May!), weighed myself, wrote a menu plan for the week, went out to the grocery store and bought my supplies, did my fitness test and scheduled my six exercise sessions into my diary. Michelle promises me that if I trust her and do what she says, I will lose 5kg in 30 days and get a whole lot fitter to boot*.
I am ready.
I had to jiggle the menus a bit to suit my tastes, and the exercise sessions may not be as hard-core as Michelle expects every single day, but I am prepared to give this a red hot go. No booze. No coke zero. Fewer carbs. And 1200 calories a day (is that even possible?). It will tick a few boxes on my 52in52 list too, so all good. In theory.
The next thirty days will be all about changing habits. Michelle is going to hold my hand all the way. I promise I won't blog about it every day, but I will give you an update in the next week or so.
Will you tackle it with me?
*I know I need a sustainable approach to weight loss, but for now I just want to spring into Spring and drop some kilos. Phase two will be about maintaining.
