Me with Elke in December 2005.
Firstly just wanted to say thanks to everyone for dropping in to my blog! Thanks Rae, Kat, Bella and Selina for your lovely comments!
I'm feeling a little better today - but still feel like I've been hit by a truck! Zero energy, but definetely feel like I'm on the mend. Quite a few people I've spoken to have said that they've had similar symptoms to mine, so I now think that I have had some sort of bug (rather than just a simple upset stomach).
Well, one week to go! Cant believe how fast its gone! I'm gonna blitz it this week, no nasty little bug is going to stop me. I'm not doing the depletion diet this week. I'm not having professional photos done this time (just getting them done at home) so Sue has suggested I double my water 7 days out (thats today - 6 litres - yeeehaah!), and cut out sodium 3 days before photos. But I can still eat normally (I'm alternating high/low carb days at the moment) so that's a bonus!
The one recurring thought I've been having this week is "I cant wait to finish this programme so I can have a few days off training". There's been no thoughts of "I cant wait to eat such-and-such when I finish" and this is a huge change in mindset for me. I've come a long way, I do have to say - ! (Much credit to Sue and Rae!) Last year I was developing habits that have now become second nature to me. Quite happy to say that last night my partner was eating KFC, and I had absolutely no desire to eat it. It didn't even smell nice.
Well, its Sunday so I'd best be off and get prepared for the week ahead!
