Tara and the two Dave’s are all sharing a Twitter account for BlogToFit. So if you enjoy our posts here, you’ll likely get a zillion times the content (and one or two funny one liners) over at Twitter given the fact that some of us (cough, Fowler!, cough) are ADDICTED to it!

Even though we share an account, you’ll know who is tweeting by their initials at the end of the tweet.

So, how did the BlogToFitters do this week? Read on below!

So I’ve been really really busy this week. But I have clocked up 10,000 steps on my pedometer every day too by going for walks into town when I could just easily pick up the phone and do what needs doing or jump in the car.
It’s C O L D here in England at the moment too, and W E T, but it really hasn’t put me off and only serves to invigorate me.

The only trouble is – and here’s the kicker – more exercise = bigger appetite and I’m fighting the urge to stuff my face with hot toast and crumpets the minute I walk in the door.

I know, however, that I am heading in the right direction. I now have to wear a belt on my work trousers to stop me having to hitch them up every 5 minutes and frightening everyone to death with a workman’s bum.
As you’ll see from my stats, my weight hasn’t moved much, but but but BUT I feel much much better and I KNOW I’m heading in the right direction.

The trouble when you make diet and fitness forth in your list of priorities is that it sometimes doesn’t get a look in. Especially if you have a cold that just won’t budge, accompanied by an “all or nothing” mentality. Further complicate the issue with some poor planning and it’s a recipe for not getting fit and not losing weight.

I don’t regret making fitness my forth priority – as the things I have at 1-3 are crucially important to me at the moment – but I do regret allowing my flawed Completer Finisher personality with an all or nothing approach mentality – to stop me from making some progress… even a littleprogress.

I’ve put on a pound in weight and a little around the middle. I’m going in the wrong direction. I’m not panicking because I haven’t fallen off the wagon or abandoned my goals as such, but something is awry here and I want to figure out what. I’ll give it some more thought before my post tomorrow.
