I come to you with the most ashamed, sheepish expression on my face.  I was doing so well.  I’m down 1.5kg over the past week, and then this afternoon happened.

They left me all alone.  In the office, I mean.  It’s one of my triggers, solitude.  That, and cinemas and travelling.  They always drive me to want chocolate, pastries and crisps, and today was no different.  Bit by bit, people drifted out of the office for the afternoon – off to meetings, off to travel across the country, off home cause they only work till 3pm.

From 3pm till 5pm, I was all on my own.  And I wantonly, wilfully took away my almost-perfect week, and flushed it down the drain along with the last of my dignity.

The fact that I’m still in a fair amount of pain after BMF hasn’t helped things any.  Seriously, it’s a cliche, but I have muscles hurting that I didn’t even know could hurt.  If I didn’t know better, I’d think that I had something like appendicitis, the abs pain is so strong.  And it’s not just one muscle in my arms – it’s all of them.  This is what my friend was talking about when he said that weights training on machines is no good, cause it isolates your muscles.  There was nothing isolationary about the way my muscles got worked on Tuesday, cause all of them hurt.  Yes, ALL of them.

I’m whining, I know.  I’m sorry.  I’m just feeling sorry for myself.  I mostly can’t wait for the pain to go away so that I can go back to BMF again…

Anyway, enough whinging.  That’s not very stiff upper lip, is it, what? To atone for my afternoon disaster today, I’m doing an extra PP day tomorrow, and then signing up officially for BMF before next Tuesday’s class.

    Charlotte: THANK YOU!!! Cary and I have arrived at our goal weights, thanks to your counsel, tips and encouragement! You have added years to our life (x2), subtracted inches from our waistlines, and MILES of fabric from our wardrobe. We’re attending Aunt Donna’s retirement dinner tonight, and we’re going to EAT OUR HEARTS OUT! 🙂 THANK YOU!!!
