12WBT: I'm doing it.

Well, I've gotten through day one of the 12WBT pretty well!

Fear not, I won't be updating you on every.single.thing that passes my lips during the next 12 weeks, because let's face it, noone but me gives one single shit.

Actually, even I would lose interest, and im the one doing it. Lol

Last night before I had officially started I was thinking about some possible hurdles for me. I think if I can identify things that are a challenge just maybe I can be prepared to get over them.

So for today, I am pretty pleased that I-

  • Ate breakfast (I have known to be a shocking meal skipper.)
  • Drank 2L of water (I haven't been drinking barely any!)
  • Actually prepared and cooked an evening meal (We've covered before that living alone, I prescribed to the school of thought that said assembling some prosciutto, crackers and hommus was dinner.)
12WBT Banana Bruschetta from the nutrition plan

If you are unfamiliar with the 12WBT, the basis premise is that Michelle Bridges is your personal saviour for the next 12 weeks.  The program includes a full nutrition and exercise plan, and weekly viedos and tasks from MB herself.

The meals were pretty good today!

My favourite was the Fish & Spanish Chickpeas tonight. To be honest I was sceptical that this would be delicious and or filling, but MB delivered. The dinner was basically sauteed onion and garlic with a can of chickpeas, then some baby spinach, cumin and paprika with grilled fish and crumbled feta on top.

Colour me suprised MB, you've done it. I would happily eat that meal, whether I was watching calories or not.

Sadly, it's been a while since Ive actually cooked :S

Slowclap for Michelle Bridges please, everyone...

In non weight-loss news, I got a great bargain on the weekend. I few months ago at Myer I saw a great dinner set by Maxwell & Williams in their 'Putting On The Ritz' range. I so sorely needed one (I've got the most mis-matched plates going on) but being a broke uni student I put it off. Disappointed I didnt have the $149.95 spare, I soldiered on with the jolly assortment in my cupboard.

I happened to be a-wandering Myer on Saturday, and they had the very same set for only $43.95! You better believe I snapped that baby up.

It reminds me of the heavy ceramic one my Nanna used to have when I was a little tacker.

Gorgeous dahlias and random tiny white globe thingies I bought on the weekend

Thank-you everyone for your kind words and support on this little weight loss journey. 'Tis very, very appreciated.

Hopefully I can update you on some great progress soon!


  1. Those plates are GORGEOUS! I had my eyeballs on them for ages but decided that I can't part with perfectly plain white plates.

  2. Congratulations on a successful day one :-)

    Did you make sure you took photos etc. at the start? I know the idea can be daunting but you'll definitely be glad you did when you see your results at the end.

    Also, try to connect with other in your area (most have private FB groups etc) extra motivation and support goes a long way, you can then post your loss each week to the group and you'll have your own personal cheer squad (without having to put your weight on your blog for the whole world to see.

    Good luck :-) I really enjoyed the program and learnt a lot about the foods I was/wasn't consuming from it. Hope you have great success :-D

  3. Nice! That sounds like a yummy dinner!
    Its hard to get in those 2 litres of water a day, but my trick is to carry around a 1.5L bottle with me and fill it up every day, at least that way I'm getting the minimum amount of water!
