This weekend I ended up being measured for Another Dress and found that I am 1 inch on my waist away from being a size 0. Not that this means anything whatsoever, of course, but it gave me a chance for a good giggle and a vague wonder if I can knock off that inch by July!
However, those measurements were taken on Saturday afternoon. After the rest of the weekend they may no longer be valid! P and I spent the long weekend with my good friend E in Leeds and the surrounding countryside; we ate and drank A LOT, shopped, walked (though not as much as we should have done because it has got COLD here), gossiped, lounged and slept. Last night when P and I arrived back in London I was hoping for an evening of broccoli and LLBY, but P decided he wanted to eat out so... we did. My weekend of gluttony culminated in the sharing of a cheese plate, but it's over now... and from reading everyone else's blogs, I don't sound as though I was alone in clinging to the CRON wagon by my fingertips. :-)
I'm looking forward to getting back on track again now though. I didn't actually eat anything bad (well, apart from two polenta fries yesterday, oh dear), and I did have some LLBY everyday, and nuts and seeds and gojis and lots of fruit and vegetables, but as usual with eating out there were loads of hidden calories and I know the nutrition couldn't have been as ON as it should have been.
So with July heading towards me at a rate of knots I am starting to think about a serious 2 month plan - drink lots of water, cut the caffeine, cut down on the booze, body-brushing, that sort of thing... I don't feel as polished as I should be. My body feels like a perfectly solid family car, and I want it to be as revved as a lamborghini. :-)
So, give me your best tips for feeling and looking fabulous... food, supplements, tips, tricks?
Yes, well. I just caught up on all the blogs, inc April's post about the definition of being truly CRON. So perhaps the label is not one I should lay claim to any more. Not that I want to be labelled at all. I do love the feeling of community that exists around these various CRON blogs, but until I can really walk the walk perhaps this isn't the place for me any more... if I am somehow letting the side down with my less than perfect behaviour! I don't know; I don't know, I really don't! :-)
