This Christmas I will not fall into the same old trap again, I will not eat and drink everything in sight and I will continue to do my daily exercises. It takes just a few days to pile it on and then weeks to get it back off.

I have a good incentive now as I just booked my holiday to Barbados in February. I will not be displaying wobbly bits and dimples on the beaches of St James bay whilst lying alongside skinny celebrities.

I will re-read my Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle book as I think you don’t take it all in in one reading. That should inspire me to keep going through the Christmas period.

I do still retain quite a few of the techniques and tips that are learned in the book but I’m sure I need to go through it again to give me motivation and inspiration.
