Wednesday, January 14


Me and exercise have never been the best of friends. It's odd really because up until the age of 14 I used to to ballet and gymnastics to a high level. I used to to ballet on pointe shoes (I was pretty good if I say so myself), and I competed in national level gymnastic competitions. Of course, I got to 14 and discovered that there were more important things to life.. boys and a social life. Oh if only I knew then what I know now!

So anyway, having lost another 2 pounds this week bringing the total since 1st October to 38 pounds, I decided that I'd invest in an exercise bike. This is the exercise I'm most likely to do. I don't have to go out of the house, so motivating myself into going somewhere is not an issue. I don't have to parade my unfit flab infront of anyone at the gym, and I don't have to take my clothes off and squeeze it into a show everything swimming costume (although swimming is definately on the agenda when the weather warms up, Isabelle loves swimming).

A little disappointed with myself this morning as I only managed 5 minutes on the bike. My stamina is so weak! It doesn't help that I suffer with my hips and lower back due to the fibro. That said, I'm planning to do another 5 minutes a little later on, and then work on building it up by increments of 5 minutes so that I can do a half hour session twice a day. I know my stamina will increase, especially as the weight goes down.

I will be both slimmer and fitter this year. I'm tired of being overweight and not being able to do much. I know part of it is due to the fibro, but a lot of it is due to carrying a lot of excess poundage!

Onwards and downwards!
