Motivate me!

I'm feeling incredibly unmotivated at the moment. And I'm going to blame winter. Its too cold to ride - although I do it anyway - thanks neckwarmer and wind proof gloves - although I'm not sure what I'm going to do when it rains.

I'm also going to blame the Pandyr's three month or so long nightshift. So not only when I get home around 7ish in the night, do I then have to cook my dinner and shower and wash dishes and wash clothes, I then get woken up anywhere between 1am and 5am when he gets in.

As you can imagine this makes for a very grumpy Mel.

I need to get back into it. I've been stuck on the same weight for the last month. I can't get my head round the eating plan. Its bloody easy, but I can't be arsed writing down what I just ate. or thinking about it. Its cold. I suck. I need help.

I forgot to mention that I want to thank everyone who comments - even if its just to say Hi - and Sharon I have two presents here for Neco and if I don't get organised he's going to be way too old to ever get any use out of them!

Two Attacks in a week :)

Attack classes that is. This must be a bit of a shock and I am doing them mostly low impact, but I'm pretty pleased with that.

I got my photos back from the challenge. I've been trying to work out what to say about them - but its really tough.

See, when I see a photo of myself - I'm always shocked that it's me. I never see myself as the fat chick (even though I am), and it's a bit of an eye opener. I wish I was brave enough like Renee to post my pics, but I'm not sure if I can do it.

But the changes between the first photo and the last are really different. I mean, I'm still a lard ass - I only lost 7 kilos - but my body has changed shape - no-one told me I had this weird humpback whale thing going on - (thats actually on my back) - and thats descreased markedly - my stomach actually doesn't stick out as far as the puppies anymore (which is a novelty), my ass has shifted (always good, cause I don't want a mum's bum), and my t-shirt is loser around the arms and waist.

I'm going to get the Pandyr to take a pic of me at the end of the next 12 weeks so I will always have the comparison - and, as my friend Lesley suggested - I could make a flip book - so I can flip through it and see myself shrinking as time goes on.
