Well here we are Day 1 of Round 2 2011 & wow the forums are going crazy!
I have had a few "lighbulb" moments since coming home from Melbourne & I have to say I am pumped for this round.  I also get to say that I am no longer Obese.  I am just overweight now.  I have 15kgs to go until I get to a healthy weight range & I am going to do everything I can to get there this round.  Since I lost 10kg in Round 3 last year & 5kg in Round 1 this year I know it will be tough but I now believe that I can do this.  I know that I can get to a healthy weight & by telling my friends & family this time about what I want I know I have too!!!
I have also managed to recruit a few friends to join me in this round & now have Tim (my hubby) & one of the Teachers at School doing it locally with me then I have a few friends up in Hobart & a few interstate so now we can support each other.  I am also hoping to organise a PT to run sessions on a Sunday in Hobart for those doing the 12wbt.  It will be a bit of a hike for us to do it but I need a chance to train around people, I push myself more when around others to this is just something else to help me along my way.

So in signing off today I will put up my beach run time.  The Beach is anywhere from 2.4km to 2.5km each way depending on the tide! today my time was 32mins & I did it non stop
(low tide today).  Tim's time was just over 36mins.  I am hoping to improve this greatly over the next 12 weeks.

Neglect & Why

I'm sorry, I have neglected this blog.  Why because I was embarrassed that I wasn't sticking to things (I even considered starting a new one).  Here I was on Round 2 encouraging people to be their best & I wasn't doing the same.  Why?  I thought I could do this by myself.  I can't I am not ready for that yet.  I need to follow Mish's plans.  Yes I still lost 5.5kg but I could have blitzed it so now here I am nearing Winter when I will be blitzing it in the cold.  I also felt ashamed to put it on the forums.  As Support Crew I felt I should know how to do it.  I realise how silly I was being now.  Round 2 2011 is my round.  I am cutting all crap (not to much to cut) & I will be exercising most days.  I have DVD's & some Gym equipment so there are no excuses.  I will even yell out on the forums if I need help.  This is my commitment to Mish as well.
I had been thinking about writing this last week but week but wanted to wait until after the Workout & Finale Party.  I can honestly say I am more inspired after the workout & seeing everyone's transformations.  I know I can push myself I also realise I do need to train around people.  How motivating is it!.  I have started on a mission to get people to sign up near me & am organising with a PT to run a few 12WBT sessions up in Hobart.  Hopefully we can get enough Hobart 12WBT'ers interested to make it a regular workout.  I have also created a 12WBT Tassie Crew.  If I am going to make this my round this is another way of getting support when I live in a slightly isolated area.
So to end off this post I am saying BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
