This blog is a means of sustaining motivation as I inch ever closer to my ultimate goal of being fit, healthy, sexy. There have, and will be, plenty of bumps in the road. This will be a blog of honesty, where I admit my short comings and celebrate my victories. This time will not lie to myself.

The Ultimate Grocery Guides!
I made two versions of this guide, one for those of you with full regular kitchens and one for those of you in college dorms, offices or anywhere that has limited cooking possibilities. The produce sections are up to you, customize the list with whatever specific fruits and veggies you like but I included how many I’d recommend getting each week. For the full kitchen people that means plenty of variety to make your meals with and for the limited space people that means less risk of produce spoiling. I hope these come in handy when you think about your next trip! :)

First month of getting back on track is up! Man, that went insanely quick! It’s been a month of ups and downs, thats for sure. My confidence hit rock bottom but I can feel it slowly creeping back to me, bit by bit. That in itself is my greatest achievement this month, and what I am most proud of :) Weight is just a number, beauty is temporary, but confidence is absolutely invaluable.
I feel like I’ve done really well over all with curbing my binging habits and tackling unhealthy tendencies (namely just not eating) head on before they take hold again. I still give in to temptation a little more often than I should, but I’m resting more than I did, so that’s still progress :) Ok, time for the stats:
Drum roll please…..
SW: 73.4kgs (September 1st) - CW: 70.5 (September 30)
Thats a loss of 2.9kgs over the month! Most of it occurred in the first and second week though, which is probably due to water weight an cuting out all the crap I was eating. Next month I am going to need to amp up the training to keep my weight steadily declining though out.
Waist: 82 cm - Hips: 97.5 cm - Chest: 98cm - Thighs:63 cm - Arm: 31.5cm - Under bust: 83
Unfortunatey I forgot to take measurements at the beginning of the month so I can’t compare before and afters here :( But next month I will!
Goals for October:
At the end of October my next “time goal” will roll around; my sisters school ball. I want to look as good as I did in high school by then. To be at the same weight as I was I need to loose 5kgs by October 31st. That’s not going to happen, but I think if I can loose at least another 3kgs by then, I’ll be able to squeeze into my dress and still pull it off :)
Here goes month two!
