Miscalculations

Ok so I had a minor freakout last night when I realised I had miscalculated the dates for the round and that I am actually flying overseas 4 weeks BEFORE the program ends. In the past I would have used this as an excuse to give up before I began but continuing with my new found positivity I’ve decided that this isnt a major catastrophe. All it means is that I’m going to set myself a goal to reach by the end of Round 8 and that I’m going to have to really hard (harder than I had planned to) during the warm up and preseason in order to achieve that goal. I’m realistic enough to know that while I’m travelling I will not be counting calories, but I’m hoping that by having 8 weeks of the program under my belt I’ll be able to enjoy the different foods I love to try without going overboard, and that I will still be able to keep up with some exercise (makes me even happier I signed up for the “at home” workouts so I’m not reliant on a gym which I wont have access to while i’m away). Usually I lose weight while travelling – no doubt due to walking everywhere instead of sitting on the couch, but I’m going to get the bulk I’ve the weight I want off before I go.

To that end I did the Bay walk this morning with the lovely Carmel whom I met on this site. It being the last of my days off I usually would have slept half the day away, but thanks to Carmel I was out of bed and burned 710 calories before 9.30am and I have the blisters to prove it smile They may not have been the fastest steps on the Bay but they were purposeful steps on the road to finding myself again.
