Pick myself up, dust myself off and start all over again...

Pinned ImageRound 2 of the Michelle Bridges 12wbt officially started today.  Yay!  I'm excited to see the new nutrition and exercise plans and to get stuck into it again wholeheartedly. 
Over the intervening time between the end of round 1 and now, I put on 2 kilos.  Yes, that's right - 2 kg.  Today I weighed 99.4kg.

Normally, I would be gutted by this atrocity and be very severe on myself.  I would plan days of austerity and hunger in order to lose the extra weight.  Then I would not follow through on these plans.

Subsequently, I would then become even harder on myself, to the point of self loathing.  This would most likely be followed by some unwise eating choices which would compound the original problem.  These choices would no doubt involve milo.

Talk about a vicious cycle!

Does this sound familiar to anyone?  Or is it just me?

For someone who can string a sentence together and can appear quite lucid when necessary, it continues to baffle me why I can be tempted to think and act this way.

Well, not this time, buddy.  Not this time, my gentleman.  Of course I'm disappointed that I thought I could relax on my eating and exercise and allow a few of my favourite excuses a free rein. 

{But I did, so there's nothing for it but to pick myself up, dust myself off and start all over again.}


  1. I don't think you're alone gorgeous girl...that's why soooooo many people do consecutive rounds I'm guessing. Me, 2kg as well. It's frightening how easily it goes back on. But the good thing is, we now know why, like, the science of it, and we know exactly what we have to do to get it and it's buddies to take a hike.

    Good luck for tomorrow's weigh in xx

  2. Ooooh Janie, been there, done that, I think we all have, that viscious cycle that just sucks you in. So you're definitely not alone there.
