Week 1 weigh in and SOOO many red flags

Happy to say I am exactly the same weight I was last Wednesday, which was the final weight for round 2. When I weighed myself one Sunday morning I'd put on 600g after are rather indulgent weekend. But with 2 days of clean eating and sticking to my calories I am back at last weeks weight. I am closer to 80 than I am to 90 and I'm a weight I haven't been in over 10 years. Squeeeeee!

Last night I was diarising my red flags and I have to admit I'm a little scared. Lets me honest I really have no self control when it comes to food and to have so many red flags is a little daunting and I'm really going to have to plan out those red flags so I don't jeopardise my final 12wbt.

Here's a sample for you
- Fathers Day - usually a indulgent day filled with deliciously rich food and a steady flow of alcohol.
- A pre-planed cheese and wine afternoon with some girlfriends to discuss our upcoming camping trip
- Our local 12wbt crew finale/welcome party
- A week of camping (Gulp) thankfully one of the other mum's is also on 12wbt this round and I think we'll only be sharing dinners so everything else I should be able to control.
- My neice/nephew's birthday party
- Bathurst weekend: another indulgent weekend filled with lots of food and alcohol
- My Mum's birthday
- My son's birthday
- Icehouse concert
- 12wbt Finale party

WOW I am really going to have to be organised and flex my willpower muscle.

Until next time

Peeks head around corner....Hello is anyone still here?

Well I'm not sure if anyone's still out there. But today I am making my return to blogging.

Round 2 wasn't so great for me. I really feel like I let everyone down. I managed to lose 7.8kg, but if you add to that the 3kg I put on in between rounds, it's really not that good considering how well I did in round 1. and that ladies & gents is I believe where I went wrong. I got complacent. Gosh give a girl a few compliments and she thinks she is the supreme goddess of weight loss.

I've now laid round 2 to rest and I am back and feeling confident to finally shed myself of the last 15kg.

This is my commitment -

My commitment to myself, to my family, to Mish and to the 12wbt community is to eat clean for the next 12 weeks and beyond. To build up my exercise and to learn to run for longer periods of time. I commit to blogging regularly and participating on the forums. I commit to never analysis anything on this program, I will JFDI. I commit to taking my vitamins every day and watching all of the weekly video's. Most importantly I commit to being kinder to myself and acknowledging how far I've actually come.
I'm feeling excited and quietly confident. I'm even considering ordering my finale dress now in a size 12 as extra incentive. 
So I'm hoping I still have a few people out there who are keen to read my blog, cause "baby I'ma back!"
