It has been put to me that I am on a journey for the next four months. The scenario is that I'm on a road trip. I'm driving, and I have my trainer(s) in the back seat giving directions.
I'm in control but my trainer(s) will guide me to my destination (i.e. to be fit and fabulous).
In light of how I'm feeling at the moment, I have in my mind an old, fat lady sitting in the passenger seat next to me! So my plan is at the first opportunity to ditch her at the first service station - just drive off without her. Only then will I be ready to start.
