Well I made the decision that i ahd to get fit and lose weight. So i've bought into a potential gimmick and invested in the 'BodyDoctor' book and also bought some weights. Having put off joining the gym owing to the fact that I needed a passport photo and that I've found every excuse possible for not getting one done (bad hair day, Sainsburys booth is outside and it's too cold, Tesco's had loads of kids in it, I wasn't feeling smiley etc etc) I decided that I really had to take action.
So a few nights ago I did the first set of exercises that I'll be doing three times a week (at least) for the next six weeks (at least – but that's my target, I have a wedding to go to). it hurt. I realise that I've gone from being able to do proper press ups and hundreds of sit ups (when I was at school) to not being able to do one proper push up without really struggling. And then i had to measure myself. oh lordy. I knew I was holding a few extra pounds, but to find that my boyfriend (a good five inches taller and more athletic) has nearly the same size thighs and waist as me was a tad depressing. So now the motivator is definitely to make sure that i look better in my skirt at the wedding that he will in his (he's wearing a kilt by the way, he's not a cross-dresser).
So here we go then….. I will be using the blog as a motivator blogging highs and lows (sure there will be a good few of those). But hopefully I will look lovely in six weeks and then I'll be one happy blogger!
