I blame this cover, Kate Upton in all her voluptuousness, made me a bit relaxed about having crept to a size 12, but in less than 6 weeks, I'm no longer fitting into my new clothes and a 14 is beckoning...
I can disguise it for now, but the St Trop beaches are a little less forgiving, and my inches aren't on the top half, it's all around my waist.
Blaming working is a cheap shot, there must be women who can balance work, exercise, loved ones, dogs and feeling a bit knackered all the time. But I am not one of them.
I have always followed the Thermic Plan, lots of protein, lots of food, anything that boosts the metabolism and very little restriction.
But the last few weeks have seen an endless round of 'bulk eating' and no exercise and I just can't get back into the 'Thermic Zone', a friend is juicing, and I thought I might join her with my Thermic version.
As I have a dinner tomorrow and lunch on Friday, it all needs to be sensible and do-able.
So here it goes...
Breakfast 3 eggs and coffee
11am Green juice (veg based not fruit)
Lunch Protein mix (soya based not whey)
Tea time Earl grey tea and small bag of nuts and raisins
Dinner meat and vegetables
(lunch and dinner inter-changeable)
Exercise 40 mins each day
It's a cross between all the old favourites; juicing, Slim Fast, Cambridge diet and most importantly REAL food.
Currently weigh around 10 1/2 stone (evidence of this will be posted tomorrow)
Aiming to get to 9 1/2 by July 14.
Will follow this for 3 days and re evaluate.
Do you have any diet plans that you swear by?..
Here are some clothes pics, opted for a nude and black week, a few weeks ago (before the 'tipping point' of the weight gain)
