    Default It's still January and there are another 14 days

    Hi all, I didn't manage to blitz starting on 1 January but I have taken the bull by its horns and have started today. Day 1 of 14 and I will try to keep it to a clean phase 1. I have a spare 3.5 kilos to lose which crept up on me over the past month (pre Christmas events, my birthday, family visits etc).

    So here I go. I have a fantastic 5 day holiday in mid-February to Istanbul to get ready for. Let's see if I can stay focussed!

    Hi Priscilla, I never managed to saddle up for the blitz either - so I started yesterday and I feel better already. Hope it goes really well for you and Istanbul sounds amazing
    My mind is like my PC screen: 19 tabs open on the top bar, 3 of them are frozen, 25 half written emails on the bottom bar, and I have no idea where the music is coming from...

    You can do it Priscilla. Istanbul sounds exciting. Is it a birthday treat?

    Hiya, sis! Glad to hear you're motivated and focussed now that all the festivities have come and gone! Keep plenty of HF snacks on hand for those weak moments...

    Part of it. I am going with a friend who also has her birthday in December and we have each promised each other a birthday Hamman treat while there.

    I tend not to snack when I'm focussed. Just three meals a day to allow my body to attack my fat cells in between for energy rather then to give it immediate energy.

    Day one went well. Now for day 2. Planning to spend most of the day cooking up soups and chicken stew. Hope to have a good walk as well.

    Atta girl! Great attitude, and one I need to adopt as well.

    Best things you can do for your body. You're on your way!
