I know I haven't been around the Cookieblog much of late. To be honest, I'm working on something. For once my work in progress doesn't involve yarn, or fabric, or pretty paper, or cupcakes or cookies. It involves working on getting my overgrown lardy arse to be not so overgrown and lardy!
There comes a point when I figure I can't keep blaming the fact that I'm overweight on the fact that I just had a baby.....especially seeing as the last baby is 3 and a half now. My husband has completely put me to shame of late. In the last three years he's lost almost 7 stone (98lbs) whilst I've sat back and gained over 30lbs watching him do it.
It's time for action (that is the word of the year after all) and action is what I've been taking. We've been "eating clean" round here for over a fortnight - all wholewheat foods, high protein, low sugar, no junk food and training like a whirling dervish 6 days a week (weight training, cardio, karate classes, swimming). It's starting to pay off now though and I've manage to lose 8lbs in a little over 2 weeks.
So, given that I'm practically permanently camped out at the gym most evenings and the rest of the time I'm either working or doing the stuff that needs doing at home I think there'll likely be a hiatus in Cookieblog posting until I can get down to something approximating my goal weight. I have taken some before pictures so when my 12 week programme is up I might be brave enough to post some before and afters so I can show you what I've accomplished.
