Fresh Start Monday

Well after a very enjoyable weekend with good friends, good food but a bit more than I should have and some things I shouldn't have, it is time for a fresh start.

So today I have dropped my allowance to 1500 and so far it's been good:)

I have done 15 minutes on the Wii and I am just about to go to meet my husband coming home from work. Titch is sat by my feet looking very expectantly at my trainers...

Will finish my post when we get back.

I'm back, had a great walk with my little Titch and knocked 12 minutes off my time:) When I started walking to meet him, it would take nearly an hour, last week it took 50 minutes, tonight it took 38. I am not struggling at all with the walking now. In fact I would be faster if I wasn't training Titch to wait at the kerb when we are crossing roads. She is getting to be such a good little dog and I am getting to be more relaxed walking her.

Just had the last of my calorie allowance for the day, melba toast and laughing cow cheese, was delicious.

A good day today.

Well done - and walking faster burns more calories, lol!

Excellent job on shaving down the time on those walks...your progress is just awesome. And I am so envious of you sliding right down into the 1500 calorie range with no pain, lol. When I first started 8 weeks ago, I came down from 4,000 to 1500 and thought I was going to die from starvation, lol. I think I cried every day that whole first week, lol. Good for you Sheilagh!! I just love reading your blog. You're so cool!! :)

Well done on the walking time. You are definitely making some great progress there!
And on the calories too. Like Tammy I recently shaved my calories down to the 1500 range. I've adjusted, but man, it didn't seem like much to begin with!
Laughing cow cheese, I have a friend who swears by it, she has it all the time.
