Hooray! Day 84 is here!
First photo is 2nd Jan 06 (complete with one posing puddy cat) - second photo is from this morning - 26 March 06.
Week 12 finished!! I'm so happy, but I'm also sad too, because these last 12 weeks have been fabulous, and I've really enjoyed it much more the 2nd time around! Got up this morning and had Scott take my photos... here are the results... quality of the pics aren't great - we need a new camera I think. Hopefully theres some changes that can be seen?
Its been a bit of a rough week - especially the last 3 or 4 days. Low sodium is really difficult, and I was not a nice person to be around!! Combine that with all the water I was drinking, hmmmm no wonder I was a cranky-pants!
Nevertheless, I stuck to the programme like glue. Nothing passed my lips that wasn't on plan. Its amazing what determination you can have in the last few weeks. After stuffing up my knees I decided to take it easy in terms of cardio - so it was once a day only. My knees seem to be ok now, and with the upcoming weeks rest (ahhh lovely!) I'm hoping they'll be 100% by the end of the week.
Thanks guys for your support... I'm learning that I really do need to listen to my body, and when body parts "hurt", I really need to stop and take action.
Splice, you are right about Jungle Bronze! Its all glittery and smells just lovely, even though it looks like boot polish! Tracey - I got my Jungle Bronze from the chemist, its pretty expensive (I think) - about $60 for a smallish tin, but it does seem to spread quite far, and it really does seem to give you a nice tanned look, rather than orange. It washes off in water though, so each application is only for one day. Last year when I did my first programme I got a spray tan done from Ella Bache for the photos. It was good, but I found that it took forever to dry, and I kept rubbing bits off on my clothes. So this year I decided to go with a fake tan + Jungle Bronze. I started layering on the fake tan on Friday night (two applications on Friday, two applications on Saturday, then the Jungle bronze first thing this morning) and my colour looked pretty good I think).
Anyway, I've had a lovely breakfast this morning of one slice of raisin toast, and one crumpet (just couldn't decide which one to have, so I had both - lol!) and we're having some home-made pizza tonight and a glass of wine to celebrate! Looking forward to getting back to my good old oats with protein powder tomorrow morning - old habits die hard!!
My stats for this challenge are:
Start weight - 57.5kgs Finish - 54.5kgs

Time to go read some blogs and enjoy a rest!
