This Week Is Just Flying By
I can’t believe I’ve made it to day 4 of the Exante Total Solution Diet Plan and without crying or sniffing the peanut butter jar. Amazeballs! Anyway, I’d better fill you in on the bikini saga and it was a saga.
The Image You Have In Your Head
Bikini News Update – Now the image of myself I had in my head turned out to be a bit slimmer than the one that I saw in the mirror when I tried it on. I shall wear it but only with my daughter in the garden, I don’t think I’m quite ready just yet for the public to see it. However, I will admit I was a bit sad at what I saw staring back in the mirror but I just gave myself a talking to and reminded myself of what I looked like when I started at The Fast Fix Clinic back in January. I might grit my teeth and do a photo but don’t worry I will give you plenty of notice first.
There Is A Plus Though
However, I am glad that is how it made me feel I really am because yesterday I was looking at BMI charts and couldn’t understand why I was still classed as obese well today I know. It has now spurred me on to definitely get into the healthy weight category on the BMI chart. So I am afraid guys you will have to put up with me for a bit longer yet because I don’t think this journey is going to end anytime soon. According to the charts I really need to lose another 2 stone to get there so that is my main goal after my birthday on Monday.
Together We March On
But with your continuing support and encouragement, I am sure I will get there and so will you. It may mean that I might have to stay on Total Solution (TS) for a bit longer than a week and then go back to 4 Exante diet meal replacement shakes or bars/meals to goal. Obviously with exercise thrown in. I did go to the gym yesterday but I definitely couldn’t do what I usually do so I will be keeping to gentle exercise until I am off TS.
Day 4 Of The Exante Total Solution Diet Plan
Yesterday I did the same thing as the previous day which was 2 bars cut into six pieces and the last bar cut into two pieces.
I also ordered some more Exante Diet Replacement meal bars yesterday and on my order was my usual strawberry jam and yoghurt, Lemon, toffee nut and raisin, white chocolate and raspberry but I tried one each of some I’ve never tried before which are chocolate and coconut, peanut butter and chocolate caramel crunch so I will let you know what they taste like when I get them.
If you want to try them with me just click on the link below which will take you to the products that I use and use my exclusive code TRACEY40 and receive a massive 40% discount on your order.
I also have my Birchbox Review coming up today or tomorrow so watch out for that one. I’m a bit late with the Birchbox this month so apologies for that one.
I would just like to thank everyone that has bought my book and to let my new followers know that it is available on Amazon both as a paperback and in Kindle format. Please click here.
I have just got back from dropping my daughter off, you know the “Mum’s Taxi Service” we’ve all done it and some of us are still doing it. But I am sat on my sofa typing this and looking out of the window and all I can see is green from trees and bushes and glimpses of blue sky scattered through the leaves.
Just Pause For A Second
It just made me stop for a second and look at the beauty of it and how we take things like this for granted. Forever going around with blinkers on. If the strong breeze stops I will have my next coffee outside. I think sometimes we need to do this; to be honest I think we should do it everyday just take out 5 or 10 minutes and breathe in the air, look around you and just notice things. How many different birds you can hear or see, insects, butterflies, bees, flowers. Just empty your mind and soak it all in.
I am quite a deep person sometimes and I know some people don’t get that and that is fine we are all part of life’s tapestry. But days like this I think it makes you grateful for the things you have and where we live. Compared to a lot of people we are extremely lucky. I know I am not going to waste any more days being overweight and a prisoner in my own home.
Let’s Start Living I Mean Really Living
There is so much beauty and life outside and we need to explore it as much as we can. Try new things, go to new places, open our eyes to all the possibilities. When I think of my life before The Fast Fix Clinic my life was in black and white with smudges of grey and the only way I can describe it now is that it is full on glorious technicolour. So how good am I going to feel when I know I am officially in the healthy range.
I have been given a second chance and I know if I do get into the healthy range on the BMI scale I will feel even more incredible than I do now. Let’s all continue on this journey and turn into beautiful butterflies and smell the roses and grab everything that we have left before it is too late. It’s not quantity for me it is quality.
