Waiting For My Order
Thank you for joining me on day 5 of the exante diet total solution plan. Hand on heart I found yesterday afternoon and evening a bit more difficult than usual. Mainly I think because I have been getting fed up with the strawberry jam bars. Actually fed up is a bit harsh because I do like them. It’s just that when I have used them in the past it has been as an earnt treat at nighttime if I’d been to the gym that day.
But as I have been trying the total solution plan this week I have been using the bars and cutting them into pieces. I ran out of my other flavours a couple of days ago so I have had 2 days of the same flavour. I still like them but I desperately wanted to try a different flavour today and I have just checked my order and I’ve got until 23rd June to wait for delivery and it can’t come quick enough. Feels like a month away at the minute. So a little lesson for you make sure you don’t run out of a good selection of your favourite things; keep some stock in advance otherwise it could lead to naughty snacking.
Day 5 Of The Exante Diet Total Solution Plan
Last night was difficult and I definitely struggled and really wanted to stuff my face with rubbish. I think it was down to hormones and tiredness also. Instead of stuffing my face with chocolate though I had a bowl of blackberries, raspberries and strawberries and drank more water. I don’t think I’ve had enough of that today and it makes a huge difference. So learn from my mistakes and drink, drink and drink some more.
Exante does some really nice water enhancers my favourite of which is cranberry you can buy that from the link below but the code for everything other than the exante diet meal replacements is TRACEY20.
However, don’t forget that the exclusive code for meal replacement products remains TRACEY35 so stock up while you can and get your 35% discount using the link below.
I have also been told that Twinnings now do some water enhancer bags to infuse water but as of yet, I don’t know anyone who has tried them. While we were in The Fast Fix Clinic we would put some mint, and a slice of lemon or lime or both in a glass of sparkling water at night time. I know I may have mentioned this before but it kept us sane.
Finally Sunk In
Following Wednesday’s bikini saga I am now focussing on those size 12 jeans even more and getting myself into a healthy BMI range. I had a bit of a wobble Wednesday but feel a lot better about it now. I thought I was going to stay on TS until I’m at a BMI of 30 but it seems to be dragging this week all of a sudden.
I’m not sure but I think I was expecting some kind of miracle to happen in one week which is ridiculous. Very strange how your mind works when you are trying to lose weight. You seem to lose all of your common sense sometimes. It has taken me over 10 years to get to this size so it is not going overnight. But the important thing to remember is that yes it is going! That is a success story in itself. So once again Wardy cut yourself some slack.
We have this constant internal battle going on in inside ourselves every day and for some people all day. But we are not going to change a lifetime of bad habits and poor education by just consuming diet products or meal replacement products. We need to find out why we do the things we do, change habits that we have ingrained in our very being and we need to start new habits and keep doing them over and over until it becomes second nature.
Subsequently, we also need to educate ourselves as to what our body actually does and what it needs to do it to the best of its ability. If we don’t it is a slippery slope back to where we came from and we don’t want that at all.
I don’t think twice now about toast for breakfast, biscuits with coffee whereas back before The Fast Fix Clinic my day was full of carbs and not just for breakfast, lunch or dinner but all day. Last night my daughter was tucking into a pizza and usually, I would be fighting her for the crusts as she leaves them; not last night. It passed through my head but like some far and distant memory and not as a god almighty urge to grab it off of her plate and chow down on it.
Yesterday I completely forgot to weigh myself in the morning I was running behind and completely forgot. So this morning I had a sneaky peak obviously after having a wee… we all do this don’t we I mean it weighs a couple of fluid ounces but every bit helps.
The Things We Do
I remember years ago I used to move my scales around the bedroom floor to find out where I weighed the lightest – how sad is that? The things we do to make ourselves feel better. Anyway according to the scales I weigh in at 12st 12lbs today which is cool as long as I stay at 12st something and not creep back up into the 13st something bracket.
I’m not sure how long I can keep doing the TS plan as I miss the gym. I might have to go back to the 4 products a day after my Birthday on Monday but let’s see how it goes.
I would like to thank everyone again for the lovely messages I have been receiving. I love hearing from you all and how you’ve been inspired by The Fast Fix Clinic. If you stick at it believe me it works. You can message me whenever you like and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as I can.
Warm Weather Clothes
Well, it looks like we have some good weather on the way finally so I hope you all get to enjoy some of it. It got me thinking today though when I looked at my weather app. Previously I used to hate it when we had good weather because I couldn’t hide behind big cardigans anymore.
I used to feel very exposed and vulnerable to verbal abuse being fat in the Summer and that used to depress me but the daft thing was I never did receive verbal abuse from the public; I just imagined it in my head. However I did have abusive partners though and one, in particular, used to call me a “Fat C**t” amongst other things. So although they probably weren’t I would feel as if people were judging me. The same when it came to supermarket shopping. I was always self-conscious of what I had in my trolley.
It’s A Marathon And Not A Sprint
The truth is I now know I still have 2 stone to shift but I’m so glad I’m not 15st 5lbs anymore. I always looked forward to Autumn so I could get away with big jumpers. Now if I keep doing what I’m doing, then by my 50th birthday next June my weight will no longer be an issue and I can wear whatever I want. Now that is something to look forward to. I know it sounds ages away but it really isn’t. And on the scale of things what is 12 months compared to a healthy 30+ years after? Personally, I think that is a small price to pay.
So come on guys we all want a healthy future and now we can do it together. You know where I am if you need me. I am so proud of every single one of you and you keep that fire burning in my belly.
I do want you to do one thing for me though and that is at some point between now and Monday give yourself a little non-food treat. Even if it is a soak in the bath, with candles and your favourite music. Give yourself a face mask, manicure, pedicure. Sit in the garden with your headphones on listening to an audiobook or again music. Just give yourself some time out because you deserve it. I might even get the paints out this weekend or finally teach myself to crochet.
So that is your aim for the weekend; treat yourself and also play! Do something that makes you smile inside and out. While you are at it buy yourself some flowers and put them somewhere where you can see them.
So once again thank you for joining me today on Day 5 of the Exante Diet Total Solution Plan and have an amazing weekend and I will be posting again very soon.
