After hearing about it on another blog I went and had a look at www.personal-planner.co.uk and with the amount of customisation available I thought, now this I like! So I went through the steps and chose my front cover (I decided on a 'Wonder Woman-esque theme; blue with white stars my name in yellow and red elastic) which 'modules' I wanted in the diary, including the format of my days, for the modules I decided on a meal planner for the week and a 'training' (workout) tracker. I am hoping this will give me another way to track what I am eating, weighing etc. If I track it in enough places I should be able to get it covered.
The eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that I have not written a blog recently, with work being super busy I have not had the time to write my blog and when I get home I was refusing to even look at my computer, this should all change now.
|This is pretty much my determined look!|
Let me tell you know that with a zip up wedding dress (sssh don't tell people it has a zip!) the sizes are more biased to the thinner end of the size guide and unlike a tie up back you cannot get away with just not zipping it up as tight.. So, I came to the desk to order it and they put the sizing chart in front of me; 'Now don't get disheartened..' they say and immediately I am thinking oh god they don't even do my dress in my size! What it actually was that wedding dress designers seem to have their own own sizing guides and they showed me the chart and I was 2 sizes above what size clothes I actually wear!!! They agreed to let me order one size below (which is still a size up from what I wear now) as they said we would much rather take it in than you not fit into it.
So with that in mind I now have to lose AT LEAST a dress size in time for my dress to come in (June) so that I can have fittings alterations etc. This is more than doable, when you think about it it is just a couple of inches off of various places. I am so close to having lost 2 stone so far (only 4lbs to go) so I know I can do it.
We are off on a walk tonight as Jon has the dentist so the gym will be closed by the time he is done. We used to walk in all weathers, we did lots of walks in the snow last winter, so we need to get back into that habit and not wimp out because it is 'too cold'. I have decided to make sure that I am and to prove it to my lovely readers (psst that's you!) that I am going to take a photo every time we go out for a walk and stick it on my instagram/twitter (@Fordith for both), it may not be very interesting but it will be there! Probably won't be taking photos at the gym... probably not allowed... but I will still update statuses to show it.
I have had a couple of up and down weeks in my time off and my weight has fluctuated around the 18st 9lbs mark, sometimes one lb off sometimes one lb on, so I need to have a good week to get myself back in it! I also need to prepare myself for xmas and make sure that we don't go mental with chocolates and xmas food. We don't have a proper christmas dinner and just have a buffet, maybe I will have to slip some vegetables and salad bits in there. ;)
