I know december is one of the most indulgent months of the year for me, it's my birthday, we have xmas and new years... it all seems to lead to over indulgence that spirals out of control. My main aim this month is to control the indulgences, these days that I normally allow to get out of hand are simply that, DAYS, not weeks or months. So, here I am again, and looking forward to positively completing my challenge to myself.
If anyone else wants to create their own challenge for the month then please, post and keep us updated on your progress, there is nothing like a nice support network

45 minutes of cardio every day

I really want to stick to my plan as much as humanly possible, I want to start 2010 with a real bang, I want to explode into the year knowing that I can allow myself to be off plan and get straight back into the healthy swing of things the next day - I want to be in control. I also want to carry on my great exercise habits and of course, I'd like to weigh a little less come Jan 1st
If I manage to stick to my plan I am allowed to reward myself with (my pre purchased) pink leather notebook for keeping with me day to day to record thoughts and points etc... I'm a stationery wh0re
