OK, so I was going to go on a post-Christmas diet anyway, but now I've booked my holiday, the diet is now urgent!
We were planning to go to America for two weeks in March and go to the New Orelans Mardi Gras and then to Austin for a music festival. Once we started looking to book it properly, the prices were getting ridiculous, so we had a bit of a rethink. In the end we settled for booking an all inclusive holiday at a 4* beach resort in Cuba - a completely different type of holiday, but actually less than half the price of visiting the states (and much less hassle as well - I was not looking forward to going through customs).
I'm actually looking forward to going to Cuba more than I was to going to America - now it's booked I can't wait!
However, as it's a beach resort, this gives me just under 9 weeks to get bikini ready - aggghhh! I'm sure I've put back on all the weight I lost in the weight loss challenge over the Christmas period! I'm also going to have to spend some of the money I've saved (and will continue to save by doing my Beauty Diet and Project 15 Pan) to buy some bikinis. I own only one black tankini thing, and it's 5 years old - I don't really do beach holidays. Also, as I am rather blessed in the boob department, I have to buy bikinis at Bravissimo or expensive department stores, so they're not the cheapest either.
Anyway, once I've weighed myself tomorrow morning, I'm starting a new diet and exercise challenge. The thought of spending two weeks in bikinis is shocking me into getting on with it! I'm planning to lose a stone in the 9 weeks I have left. I'm not going to run a challenge like I did before Christmas, but I know a lot of you are also kick-starting the diet, so good luck to you all!
I'm going to do some posts on my weight loss progress in case you're interested. It's back to Weight Watchers for me!
Are you also on a post-Christmas diet? What are your goals?
