DAY 2 excuse #45763 or Plan b

So the program has kicked off, into day 2 and I have so far been eating well.
Been very prepared and made my meals in advance. Already cooked the broccoli and zucchini bake for tomorrow looks and smells yummo!!
I need to be super organised at the moment as I started my PT course last night, and our first module is Nutrition......
It’s quite daunting to be back studying again and I actually have to say I felt a bit old amongst so many young people...just starting out their lives I actually found myself questioning if I was doing the right thing.
But I really want to do this, I believe I have a lot to give back and I am sure that the “young ones “yes that was a television show back in the days are probably not as interested in the rehabilitation side as I am, they are at a different point in their lives.
I have been also fitting in my exercise around the study and homework (yes we have 4 pieces of homework to complete for tomorrow night)...had a bit of a hiccup tonight had to pull out excuse number #45763 stuck in traffic when I could not join some buddies at boxing, but not to fear I still took up Plan B and headed to the gym later.
I have planned out tomorrow so off to gym at #crackofarse instigated by one Amelia Burton (fantastic trainer) and then off to work, followed by school.
A busy day planned out, food planned out, BIG HAPPY SMILE ON MY FACE..... loving the new me already, Oh yeah and weigh in day....and I’m looking forward to it...GO FIGURE!!

Kick off and meeting mish

Had an awesome day today at Chaddy meeting Mish (again) and meeting some of the New 12wbter and some of the "oldies".
It was great to see so many smiling faces all ready to get healthy and become the best version of themselves that they can.

Well tomorrow is kick off for round 1.... I am all ready, I have completed all my tasks, I have taken the before shot (stll not that stunning) and I have diarised the week and lucky I did because I already have a couple of really full days. I have made sure that I can fit in my training and have now ensured I can eat clean for the week.

Tonight I made all my food for tomorrow including the dinner for tomorrow night which I will be taking with me.

Just a quick note tonight as I'm off to bed for the early start, but wanted to wish you all the nest of successes and ensure that your all making sure you are prepared and giving yourselves the best opportunity to succeed that you can. Being prepared and being consistant are 2 of the keys for me (of the many you will be learning).

Catch you all tomorrow (not sure when) as I start my course tomorrow, very daunting but I'm excited as well as very nervous.

chat soon

I'm tired, I can't be bothered - Go to bed earlier
I have worked hard all day - go before work
I deserve some time off I’ve done so well - you've done so well because of the hard work so don't start slacking off now
One day can't hurt; my kids want me to stay home - consistency is key, schedule the time in so you can still spend time with the kids
I don't like any of the classes that are on at this time - just do a different workout
I need to eat first and then it will be too late the gym will be shut - you won't die if you eat after
I'll do twice as much tomorrow...... do it now as you won't do twice as much tomorrow

EXTERNAL EXCUSES within my control
I’m too busy - Schedule in your training
Its pouring rain - do you melt?
It’s boiling hot - suck it up and make sure you hydrate
I’m not at home so can't use my gym - use one of the other workouts plan ahead and take some work out DVD's
We are on a holiday - Find out where a gym is and use it or go for a walk, do the outdoor workout
My car is broken - Walk to the gym, use a DVD workout...STOP MAKING EXCUSES JFDI

EXTERNAL EXCUSES outside my control
The gym is flooded – go help with the cleanup exercise in itself
My kids are sick - Do a DVD workout at home
Husband is sick - Do a DVD workout at home
Family member gravely ill - schedule workout time around visiting time or the time your caring for them
had to work too long at work over scheduled workout time - if you go first thing it won’t matter if your there late
