So long 6lbs. I’ll be seeing you.

And another challenge begins. Wouldn’t life be boring if every day was the same. I love sharing my life with you guys. It makes me accountable but at the same time, I also hope I’m helping you to challenge yourselves. If I can do it, anyone can. I’m no person of great will power when it comes to food. I love to moozle.

Anyway, I’ve decided to lean out a bit. I’m carrying 6lbs more than I want to and I’d like to lose it. I’m not planning on going on a strict diet because I know that if I do, I’ll immediately want to stuff my chops with everything in the fridge and more. I also work out to a high level most days and have 3 non stop kids so I need my energy. However, I’m impatient so I want to lose the weight quickly but steadily.

I’ve worked out roughly what I need to do to achieve my goals, so from today, I’ll be sharing my food again and my daily workouts. I do a mixture of Crossfit with Crossfit Cayman  (www.crossfitcayman.com), weights, barre with Sue at Balance  (www.balancecayman.com) and my own fat burning sessions which I do on a stairmaster, rowing machine or treadmill with a few podcasts or TED Talks and sweat for 25 to 30 minutes.

So here’s the first of the next month. Why don’t you try this from 1 September?
