So i'm at week 10 - hoorah. Last week was mine and my other half week off together for the year and despite him trying to take me out to dinner every single day of week 9 I managed to do all my exercise for the week, my couch to 5k week 7 podcasts and not put on a single pound in weight. Now this is all very good I know, don't get me wrong i'm not taking it for granted but it made me realise - 10 weeks ago all I wanted was to get to week 9 and then pig out in my birthday week and to reward myself with all the yummy things I had not eaten without feeling guilty and not make one move in the way of exercise - in reality I couldn't do it - I had to count calories and I had to exercise! I don't know what the NHS has done to me in 10 weeks but suddenly i'm googling more exercise and work out plans for after the 12 weeks and planning what my next challenge will be. 25 pounds down so far and still the same to lose again according to the BMI calculator but hey I'm getting there.
