I'm on the road to nowhere! / by Ali Burden-Blake

Woohoo! She arrived, albeit on Monday, not Friday, in a blaze of 3 delivery-men glory :-)

It then took Andrew and I 4 hours to put her together, it's the 'putting-flat-packs-together' kind of stress that usually sees the pair of us get rather shouty, and defensive and just generally not nice to each other. However, this turned into 4 hours of epic laughter, joke mocking and other name-calling, and actually we were awesome by the end of it!

So today, while Andrew shot off to collect the child from school, I hopped on for an ifit workout with Jillian Michaels. Not much to report, except that it works, and I like the fact that I can use a treadmill in the privacy of my own home, because then I get to do funky dance walking to toons!!

So my journey to 175lb has begun in earnest. I started at 280lbs on 22nd May. Hitting that 20st was a huge shocker for me. Having eaten sensibly for the past week I'm down to 276.8lb as of yesterday. To be on course for my goal of 175lbs by 1st June 2016 I need to be losing 2.3lbs a week, which seems very doable. One step at a time.

My first goal is 270lbs by 23rd June.

Now, where's my herbal tea....
