I’ve mentioned before that I am going to take part in Michelle Bridge’s 12 Week Body Transformation at the encouragement of Sarah and after reading Mummy Smiles’ blog post about her experience. She encouraged me in that post to do it even if I didn’t think I would manage such a huge exercise regime because the food side alone can make a huge difference. I was excited! I signed up a couple of weeks ago and to be honest, did nothing about it. I was starting to wonder if I would every actually get into it when I got this email… I am paying by the week and seeing that email drop into my inbox was a good motivator to get online, sign up in the forum and check it out and WOW, some of the stories about this program are really inspired. In addition to Mummy Smiles, I found the photos and story that Donna from Creative Controller shared really inspiring. I am going to blog the journey as a form of accountability. I am going to keep the focus of the post real but upbeat – I want to keep a positive focus and also make this a positive place for any other 12WBTers who stumble across it. Week 1 starts on Monday and at the moment The Architect and Bliss are at the market doing the grocery shop. The food looks really yum so I am feeling inspired on that front. As for the exercise, it’s going to be a big jump going from nothing to 6 days a week but I’m going to give it a go and I’m going to just take it one day at a time. This is my goal…this photo was taken in Vientam in September 2009. Bliss was 18months old and I had lost 16kgs in the 9 months prior to this photo being taken…I felt great! When I look at this photo I know I’ve done it before and I can do it again. This photo needs to stay at the front of my mind… Here I am in a similar dress, one I had made while in Vietnam….it’s not looking so great right now… If I’m feeling brave I will post a weekly updated photo…. I know I can do this, but I know it’s going to be hard work – the biggest challenge being ME and my mindset. The mindset that says “tomorrow is a new day”. Today is new day too! I’ve got a big mental adjustment to do and the only way it’s going to happen is if I am intentional about and make time for it. Wish me luck? Oh and you might enjoy a little bit of eye candy….these Sacha Drake dresses are on my wish list…. for after. Ciao Bella’s. I’m off to finish the pre-season reading and tasks…
Since writing this post I’ve been trying to read through some other blog posts about the 12WBT and thought that an easier way to keep in touch with other journeys could be through linking up so…if you’re blogging your journey please feel free to share your latest post with me below.
