Countdown to the BIG ONE!

After a few years out from regular training I am taking on the VLM again for the 2nd time - I was hoping to smash the training and take home a Sub 4 but I am no way in the same shape I was previously and with illness eating into my training January, i need to focus on getting round!!

So today I haven't got any excercise planned in AT ALL!!  I hate it...I am squirming in my chair, I feel so guilty when I don't do anything and everything I eat feels like it will go straight on my hips.  Does anybody else feel like this when they have ...
