It's what I do!!!!!......

......... trawling the internet for information about getting lean.  I wanted info on how to loose fat and sculpt my body with muscle definition ….. some of what I found was interesting and one pop-up was frankly pornographic and I was pleased the kids were in bed and not looking over my shoulder.  BUT, I did find lots of motivational people who spoke about their experiences and a lot of fantastic groups (unfortunately all in the USA) that bond and unite and do fitness competitions.

Now while I'm thinking I want the body of a fitness model I don't actually want to model or compete and I wanted to find if I could get information on diet and exercise to help me along.  I have an idea in my head that my current 5 meal a day plan is a good start, but its christmas and I'm loosing motivation to eat like that again until the new year.
Exhibit A of waining motivation ….. oops ;-)

So until then, I'll continue researching, making notes, bookmarking sites, writing up exercise routines, ringing all the local gyms about subs .... and blogging about it :-)

I'm going to take this opportunity to wish you all, in words from Sussex Bootcamp .....
Merry Fitness & Happy New Rear!

1. I want to be able to get my wedding and engagement rings back on – comfortably!!!
