to give up the excuses!

So one of the first pre-season challenges that Michelle gave us was to banish the know the ones, all those excuses you use as to why you are not eating well and exercises...

So here was my list, am sure you've used them yourself..
  • It's too hot,
  • It's too cold
  • It's too late
  • I'm too busy
  • I've got a headache
  • I'm not really that fat....(?)
  • I can eat that because it's a birthday party/wedding/special occasion/lunch with the girls/the day ends in 'y'.....and believe it or not, one that I use quite often...
  • I straightened my hair last night and if I exercise it will get sweaty and I'll have to have a shower and wash it! 
And I am embarrassed to say that just about every one of those excuses has run through my head this week as I started back at work..I am a classroom teacher but took a 3 year break from the classroom to do an advisory role. I am now back in the classroom responsible for 25 little cherubs and feeling really behind the 8 ball as a lot has changed with the curriculum in 3 years!

So the excuses have snuck in this week and I don't like it at all..... Hopefully get myself into more of a routine before the 'official' start date.

What excuses have you used...?

to get ready for the 12wbt..

So I did it....I signed up to complete Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation. I had been thinking for a while that I should do it but lifestyle at the time just wasn't right but now I feel the time is right. I had also been thinking for a while that I should start a blog, and while watching +Marleisa Connors start hers and enjoying her journey I decided to combine the 2! 

Michelle suggests a blog for her participants as a way of 'saying things out loud' I guess and I look forward to sharing my journey with you (whoever you may be!)

We've been in Pre-Season for about 3 weeks now, activities designed to get you in the right frame of mind before you start 'for real'....

It's not to late for you to join
