And once again, I haven’t been here recently.. I am sorry I promised to be better.. but then I decided to work on me.
If you’ve followed me for a while you may have read my “50 before 50” goal if not here it is…https://kimlhine.wordpress.com/about/50-before-50-a-work-in-progress/
Well guess what? that 50 is racing upon us and I hate to be surprised about some things so I’m planning.. OK, so I have 11 months, but it’s good to be prepared, I want to cross some things off that list and also the most important one is “to throw myself an amazing 50th birthday party” So the planning has begun, the theme is set and I am working on collecting the bits n piece to decorate. I could have it at a “place” and let someone else do the work, but then I wouldn’t enjoy it as much. Maybe it’s from all the years of planning parties for the numerous children and friends and family, I LIKE the responsibility of making it come to live and I don’t even mind the clean up, the bigger the mess the more fun that was had.
Anyways… side track, one of my goals was to loose weight and get to my goal weight (I did that but I did not maintain it! ) and keep it off till my party! this would mean that I can wear a fabulous costume.. yes most of my parties involve some kind of theme involving some kind of fancy dressing.
So I have embarked on “transformation” I have 11 months now to get where I want to be and to stay there. August 22nd I weighed in and did the measurements. I am doing Body Trim again, because I KNOW it works and I KNOW that I can maintain it I just have to be strong for and with myself.
Well now it is week four..I have lost three kilograms and yes that’s a small amount, but since I only had about 10 kilos to loose it means that it will be slower.. but that’s ok, I understand it’s part of the program and so usually when you don’t loose on the scales you loose on the tape measure and this too has been happening.
So part of the first four weeks on Body Trim is learning to “re program your body and eating the correct way” we have to learn to eat three main meals and three snacks, all Protein. The first three days are a detox phase where you eat only protein and drink lots of water (for me that’s been an effort) and get used to making 10,000 at least steps a day. I don’t know about yáll but 10,000 steps takes a lot of effort. So that meant, little apart from house work got done. House work is actually a good way to get 10,000 steps but then I had friends on “Fit Bit” and so we started challenging each other and that can be addictive!
Anyways that explains my absence, so now I am back and I am going to share the journey with you and share the recipes that I make and I just found this really cool exercise to get rid of my double chins! SO I thought I’d start by sharing that!
I also forgot to mention, that since I was doing so well on Body trim, I have a better attitude about loosing weight and so I am doing (to further push myself) “SugarfreeSeptember” each day we take a photo of the thing on this list!
