This is my first week reporting about my weightloss.
I have lost 1 pound.
I did very well with my snacks last week and did swap bad for good. However we ate out quite alot and also had friends round for dinner twice......so didn't do too well there!
A few years ago, when i was at my leanest....i walked alot....now i don't much at all!!
I was also so busy busy busy all the time...but too busy....to the point it wasn't good for me. So as i calmed down i was bound to put on a bit of weight.
I'm feeling really unfit at the moment, so i need to step up my exercise.
In the past i have been to gyms, gone swimming, and taken part in different classes including yoga which i loved.
Yoga is such a great form of exercise. I used to go with a friend and come back feeling calm and sleepy, ready for bed...but not feel worn out. I noticed my limbs becoming leaner and had a very flat stomach. However i had to stop as i suffer from back problems due to one leg being ever so slightly shorter than the other (it is not really noticeable but its enough that my spine begins to go out of line if i don't wear a raise in one of my shoes) as in yoga you have to have barefeet for balance, it was starting to cause a problem. Although saying that i have heard of yoga shoes.....which i keep meaning to buy, then maybe i can start up again.
Last year we did a few family walks...but with little legs around us it wasn't really exercise...just leisurely strolls.
We did go out on our bikes a few times.....I hope to do that alot more this year..i'm just waiting for it to get a little warmer.
Just before christmas me and the hubbie decided to buy the above rowing machine. It is such a great workout (apparently Anna Friel does 20 mins on hers most nights). It really works the whole body and in less time than other gym equipment. We pull it into our lounge so we can watch the tv as we are doing it.....its amazing how much quicker the time goes if you can watch your favourite programme.
My husband goes on it at least 3 times a week....i'm not quite as good ;)
Although i am happy with my progress...the first time i did it i could only manage 4 minutes!!! now i can do 15.
So this week i am going to carry on being good with my healthier snacks and i will make sure i have used the rowing machine at least 3 times.
Next week: Breakfasts.
There is a wonderful giveaway at Dreaming of the simple life
In return for entering we have to post about our first album purchase.
I was a child of the 80's -early 90's and i am pretty sure that the first album i bought was The Beach Boys - i still have it!!
Some more early albums that i got were Little Jimmy Osmond!!! and Kylie minogues first album Kylie.
Have a good week all
