Getting back from holiday mode

Postby Tarz » Wed May 07, 2008 11:45 am

So as most of you know i was just away on holidays for 2 weeks. What i must confess is I spent that 2 weeks living like an alco with a seroius smoking problem. This is a big problem if i want to get back into exercising and losing weight.

So my pledge is that for the next month i will do the following:

1) no smoking - cut them off -will only have one if i go out with the guys (i know people are probably thinking thats not good enough but baby steps people baby steps) I believe i can do it.
2) I will put the duty free bottles of tequila, malibu, bounty rum and scotch whisky into the cuboard and only pull them out if we have a gathering on weekends. And will make myself desiganted driver where ever we go.
3) Will begin my new exercise plan which is:

Monday - Strength
Tuesday - Step class
Wednesday - C25K plus strength
Thursday - hockey training
Friday - C25k plus strength
Saturday - Hockey game
Sunday - C25k

4) Eating will be perfect following this basic plan

Breakfast - cereal and 1 piece fruit
morning tea - yogurt
lunch - sandwich ans salad or soup
afternoon tea - cut up vegies or cup of soup
dinner - something with meat and vegies (not many carbs)
dessert - protein shake

I will be making a spreadsheet to tick off the days where i have completed plan perfectly. I will reward myself if i can follow this pledge for an entire month. For days that i have not followed it i will have to write down an excuse (a truthful one) as to why and will then decide if i am worthy of a reward. Not sure what the reward should be.... Any suggestions?
I'm thinking either a haircut and colour or
a massage but not sure.

So end date for this pledge is Wednesday 4th June (exactly 4 weeks).

Wish me luck!

Good on you Tara!! Cutting out the smokes will be hard but I believe in you & your will power can defeat them. Plus think how much further you will be able to run without the smokes, this will really help you on the C25K I think.

Your exercise plan sounds intense but combined with your eating plan this is what is going to get you over the finish line to your goal weight.

I wish you the best of luck & I know that you have it in you to pull this one off.

Doin alright without them, keeping myself busy and distracted.
last night will power was needed as i waited for some food to be cooked so drank a glass of milk (apparently that makes them taste real bad) just in case i gave in but i was good. I'm use to not smoking during the day cos i i never use to have one til i got home in the evenings so thats the only time that its a challange, i am not addicted to nicotine i just developed a habit where it feels strange if i don't go out on the balcony and have one whilst chatting away.
Yeah we get the ad here. I think if i start seeing people wearing green and chanting - "cut dooowwwnnn and stop!" i'd think i was going crazy without the smokes.

I'm going to have to relax the exercise part of my pledge because of my foot, but still going well. Haven't been as strict as i hoped but i have gotten back into it.

Great to see your "diary", Tara. Keep on going. The first days usually are the easiest ones, keep the discipline up!
