Lately, every Saturday morning is like Christmas. I wake up without the alarm and lie in bed secretly excited. Then I get up, wander to the bathroom and go to the toilet. I look in the mirror - yes, I look leaner than yesterday.
I slowly strip off my singlet and knickers and take off my watch. I turn on the lights. I pull the scales out from next to the toilet and place them in the same spot they go every morning in the middle of the bathroom floor. I take a deep breath and step on.
The cat steps on as well. I kick her off and start again. She won't leave me alone so I shoo her out of the bathroom and shut the door ignoring her howls of complaint.
Another deep breath, and I step on the scales.
I wait for the final beep to tell me all is completed and then look down. I am hideously short sighted so I squint at the number. I think it is a 55 but from here it could just as easily be a 58. I lean down to get a clearer look. No, that can't be right - 55.1kg - that is almost a kilo gone this week.
I run up the hallway naked and grab my camera out of my bag. It is freezing and I am covered in giant goosebumps. I sprint back to the bathroom.
This time I jump on quickly, I don't want the number to change. It doesn't. I take a photo and smile smugly to myself. Happy Christmas Katie ... you still have three whole weeks to meet Liz's target of 54kgs. I know I can do it ... easy peasy :)
I have developed a peanut butter habit. I reckon cavemen made peanut butter by squishing the peanuts under their feet so it qualifies as Paleo food in my world. It appears to be the secret to fat blasting!
