Week 1: I'm Getting Thin

It's been a long time coming, but I'm finally going to lose the extra kilos I've accumulated since living in Sydney. Affectionately dubbed by my sister as the "Sydney Spread", I've managed to get comfy in my lifestyle of boozy dinners out with girlfriends alternated with Masterchef marathons on the couch with a box of Ferrero Rocher.

Here's me after the transformation
(being interviewed by Jay Leno.)
However it dawned on me over the weekend that in October of this year (yup, that's only four months away) I need a new Driver's Licence. Which also means a new Driver's Licence photo. Which has sent me into a frenzy of wondering how I can hide my extra chin-baggage under the fluorescent lighting of the Motor Registry.
The problem really has a lot more to do with me. I'm not an athletic type and no matter what people tell me, I'll never really love exercise. I'm known around the office as the casual exerciser - I'll do a great job for a few weeks and then its as though I've used up all my activity points and I'm back to zero.

But its time for me to get serious, and in writing this blog I am inviting you all on my journey to eternal happiness and gorgeous Licence photos. It's also making me accountable. I had my trainer Cameron take my measurements earlier on in the week and its not like I can avoid him if I don't go to training (he sits at the desk opposite me). 
Wish me luck! Elise x
