Curves

Well two days into my weight loss - or should I say exercise. I haven't actually really looked at the diet yet. Actually it is the iced coffee. I love it too much. Water tastes like metal and when your salad has raw onion in it and you have run out of mints then you need to have something to get rid of the taste. My boss thinks its funny. He makes a joke of it every time he sees me with my coffee and today told me he won't accept the excuses anymore and will be my conscience (note to self - don't drink coffee in front of boss, hide under table until he leaves).

At least I have started exercise. I joined up at curves gym. It is cheaper than a regular gym as they do a 30 minute circuit. When I first saw their machines I thought this was going to be a breeze. Let me tell you that it is not. I get a full on work out both cardio and toning and all in 30 minutes. If you are big like me and don't want to embarrass yourself at a regular gym this one is great. In fact even when I am a size 8 again (note I said when) I will probably still go.

Starting the exercise was the hardest part. Now all I have to do is quit the coffee and eat healthy.

Here's my tip for drinking water. Invest in a Britta filter jug - it will improve the taste of the water. Take a bottle of water to work - 1.5 litres, I find it easier to drink from the bottle than from a cup, seems like I'm drinking less somehow. Keep water on desk and drink whenever thirsty, or bored...

Be prepared to run to the toilet for the first few days, but then your body will get used to it.

I'm drinking 2 litres a day - it's the only healthy thing I'm doing at the moment...
