It was my birthday on Thursday - 2nd February and I turned 48 !!! So now I'll have to change the name of my blog.
Unfortunately, I had to work and I did 2 jobs so I was tired when I got home. Normally at our house the birthday person chooses their favourite dinner and gets their favourite birthday cake but I opted not to. Why? I've been on a 6 day detox/tummy flattening diet since Monday.
I had put on nearly 5kg over Christmas/New Year/school hols/Australia Day! OMG - bloat city.
So I bought a book that dear hubby Phil talked about last Christmas. I didn't buy it then coz I knew he wouldn't go on it and thought it a waste of money. It's the James Duigan Clean and Lean Flat Tummy Fast. After 4 days I've lost 3kg!!! All bloating has gone and it feels great. There's no secret magic to it - just lean protein and (certain) salad/veg for 5 meals a day, water, green tea, fih oil tabs, fibre powder, vitamin tab. Next week I will add 2/3 serves of complex carbs (oats, sweet potatoes, allbran cereal (need that one!) and my beloved skim soy capaccino!
The book is well presented and had some great recipes and wasn't expensive so it served as a motivator.
Another motivator was meeting one of my idols - Shannon Ponton - one of the trainers from Biggest Loser (Australia). It was pure luck to meet him coz there were so many people there and I was in the right spot at the right time. My picture even made the local papers. Needless to say its on the fridge and I have saved a few copies!
Have a good weekend everyone!
