It is important. Actually my holiday in WDW next month and my lifestyle after are even more important. It is important as i have been close and lowered my standards at that point and gained weight back. It's important that I try my best, even if I don't reach it that I can say I tried my best as its what I consistently do that counts long termI am hearing how important it is for you to achieve your goal and I support you by listening and reminding you - you have achieved a lot and been through a lot in the recent past. I know you know those last few kilos are hard - whilst we like to be lean our bodies don't like to be too lean and they resist us - who would have thought . A couple of thoughts - make sure you are getting good sleep, make sure you are not cutting your calories too much - otherwise your body will think its starving and won't let the weight go, your body may have gotten used to your current exercise regime - you may need to kick start it and your metabolism by changing it up a bit and adding some interval training. Most importantly as I know we are hardest on our selves - I will remind you - I think you look fabulous, you are a strong, determined, caring, hardworking woman who is a fantastic mother, wife and friend who is doing her best to live a healthy life and be a great example to her son
I will avoid the scale this week as it's the wrong week of the month
Sleeping - yes, some nights I sleep 4 hours. It's not much. Average is about 6:30. Not ideal really but I tried so many thing to make it work!
Starving, I don't think so as I am eating about 2000 calories daily. When I plug in my numbers to calorie calculators the numbers are between 1850 and 1950 for maintenance so I don't think it's that
My son told me - you are one fit mammy, you don't need to worry! You look great in everything. Haha, he is looking for new console!
I will try to go close to my April (first month I did the challenge) numbers in terms of steps and calories, although on substantially body weight the loss will be slower but I am confident it will work as my goal is much smaller too
