On the way to a better me

Nervous and excited

Am coming to the end of my weight watchers phase of my weight loss. Which I'm excited and nervous about. Weight watchers got me to this point which is completely awesome but I feel the need for something new, something to be excited about and different to get me to goal. And don't get me wrong, weight watchers totally works and would have gotten me to goal but I've lost the passion and drive a little bit, I would have kept chugging along but I need that giant kick up the bum, no more chugging, time to gear things up a bit.

But I am nervous about doing the 12WBT, weight watchers was easy, really easy in fact, so I'm nervous that this is going to be hard and I'm going to fail. But I'm going to give it a good hard crack and am arming myself with the tools that will help me to be successful. I'm going to buy Michelle Bridges DVDs, her calorie counter, I'll get some new runners, I'm on the look out for a decent priced heart rate monitor so I can see how many calories I'm burning when I work out and I'll get some heavier weights too. So I intend to do this properly and I'm serious, I hope that's enough to get the motor running and get to goal.

I've been making goals for 2012, and of course my main one is to get to my weight loss goal. I also want to get fit and toned. I want to do a fun run and RUN the whole thing. I also want to see more live shows (comedy, musicals, roller derby). I want to go to Sydney and do the bridge climb. I'm sure I'll find more along the way, but for now, those are my 2012 goals. Have you made any?

I lost 500g this week, wooooooooooo. I exercised yesterday and boy am I feeling it today, but this is a kind of pain that I like because it means I worked hard and did my body good. And I took a big step today and put in the application to cancel my weight watchers account getting ready to start 12WBT next month. I'm excited and nervous at this next step, I hope I can do it and I'm hoping it will kick my butt to goal quicker and help get some toning going.

I haven't gone back to C25K yet, well not consistently. I'm not sure I want to, I think I'm looking for more than just running right now. I think that's what I'm looking forward to mostly doing 12WBT, it has exercise not just food which is where weight watchers lets you down. I've still been jumping on the treadmill but not running lots like I was, just a couple of minutes here and there. Which reminds me I really need new runners, maybe I'll get some before 12WBT starts :D

Bring on the start of the round, I'm ready!
