This week is going to be difficult - but I'm determined to get there
Pounds 4 Greenfingers update from Trevor Pfeiffer
GTN's Trevor Pfeiffer needs to have a week of heavy excercise and fasting to meet his weight loss target by Garden Re-Leaf Day on March 18th and raise money for Greenfingers...
"Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf Day takes place on Friday 18th March 2016 - and I set myself a target to loose 1 stone between the GCA Conference and Garden Re-Leaf Day and raise money for Greenfingers by making it a sponosred slim.
"Last week I managed 3 fasting days on my 5:2 fast plan but as of yesterday I hadn't lost any extra weight! Arrggghhhh! I'm now away from home on business until Wednesday evening so the next few days will be very difficult to manage proper fasting days. I will have to resort to getting as much exercise as possible and hope that does the trick to shed those extra 5 pounds by Friday.
"Immediately after conference I went down with a bout of man flu, so I was only able to get the diet up and running on Wednesday 3rd February. My start weight was registered as 15 stone 4 pounds.
"On that plan I can eat normally on non-fast days but only a maximum of 600 calories on fast days, but I now think the "normal"days will need to be closer to fasting too!Next year I wonder how many pounds of lost weight can the UK gardening industry convert into £'s cash for Greenfingers by Garden Re-Leaf Day?
After a week of three fasting days and no weight loss I definately need some extra incentives to loose the next 5 pounds in only 6 days.
"Your donation to Greenfingers via https://www.justgiving.com/Trevor-Pfeiffer will give me all the extra motivation I need to make sure I get there.
"I'll keep you all updated with my progress in GTN Xtra. Thank you to all the people who have already sponsored me. I'm looking forward to raising more money for Greenfingers when I reach the target from all the kind people who've also said they would support me."
Garden Re-Leaf 2016 has already attracted eight top industry figures who will be staging 24 hour Plant-athons in garden centres beginning their Plant-athons on Thursday 17th and finishing on Friday the 18th. Poplars, Adrian Hall and Sunshine Garden Centres have all recently confirmed they will put on Garden Re-Leaf events in store.
