30-Day Challenge: Stats and the Plan

Thanks to Gianni for joining us on the challenge; welcome aboard :)

So I had a little think yesterday about how I should structure my challenge. What I came up with actually wasn't very 'structured' at all, but in order to actually stick with this for 30 days it needs to be flexible enough that I can still cook for and eat with my husband, and have his parents come visit for two weeks near the end of the month without them having to live on spinach and tofu the whole time!

The plan is to eat no fewer than 600 but no more than 1,000 calories a day, with a weekly total of no more than 5,000. I included a minimum parameter because my metabolism's just getting back to a workable state after last time I screwed it up, and I don't want to wreck it again. The plan also includes no fewer than 4 but preferably 5 workouts a week. I know this doesn't sound very hardcore and is probably normal life for some of you, heh! But I've really backslidden recently so this isn't normal for me; trust me, it's a challenge (!), but hopefully one I can realistically stick to.

Now... stats... *cringe*
Height: 5'6
CW (oh lord, do I have to put this here?): 125
Measurements: 36-28-37

I'm hoping to be under 110 by the end of the challenge and lose at least an inch off my middle, but will need to check on losertown to see how realistic this is in a month.

Wish us luck ;)

dude. Our stats are eerily similar. If you don't mind I might copy you almost exactly ((moving away from eery and into creepy, but eh)) and see how we fare against each other...

Let the games begin! Yaya so stoked!

Thank you for your awesome comment and your support, you're an angel! I swear, if I get up to 62kg ever again, that's it, I'm jumping off Van Stadens Bridge!

I wish I could wear a bikini on the 31st, but's winter here now. I'll wear it symbolically over my skinny rib sweater and leopard tights! Love you. <3. XXX.
