And so it begins again…

So, I know I said in my last post that I had one week to go on the current round of 12WBT, but I had a think about it and I decided that since things really weren’t working for me, I would ditch the final week and move into my new regime.

For these first few weeks, I am going to follow the Bodytrim program.  I have used this before and it is not my favourite, but it does get immediate results and I really need that confidence boost right now. Bodytrim is a high protein/low carb program.  The first three days are protein only (they call this a carb detox).  You then move into the weight loss phase which allows protein and a starch or fruit for breakfast, protein and salad for lunch and protein and veges/salad for dinner.  You also have 3 protein snacks during the day and try to space these meals to every 3 hours – the idea being that  you keep the metabolism firing with several small evenly spaced meals.  You are also expected to do at least 10000 steps per day.   Anyway, I am almost through the first protein only day and I have done my 10000 steps (this equates to about a 6.6km walk – which if you saw the hideous weather in Sydney today is no mean feat). The weather is so awful, I keep checking to see if the animals are lining up to by two…..

For me, it is not so much about the program right now, but about developing consistency in my habits again.  I simply got out of the habit and I needed to shake things up.  I think part of the problem was that I stopped learning the lessons in 12WBT.  I had heard all the videos through so many rounds that I didn’t want to repeat them over again.  It’s like those days when I was a kid and watched the Brady Bunch so many times, that I was able to identify the episode simply by watching the opening scene.  By the way, I always wanted to be Marsha 🙂

You get to the point where you stop making the time and little by little you stop engaging with the program in the way it was intended to operate.  I still think it is a great program, but for me right now, I just need a new direction.

And so the new adventure begins………..
