runnning at lunch... i might start doing that weather permitting.. im also thinking about getting an exercise ball... havent strayed from my diet, but i must say, south beach diet keeps me full and happy, and is not as restrictive as others.
That is one thing I HATE about losing weight - why is it there that loses first???
I am going to try less soda and more water. It may not be much, but it is a start. I want to exercise, too, but I seem to have NO energy.... I want to badly, though, so maybe I can get more motivated...
Hey - I am on the healthy bandwagon! I decided I am tired of being fat and lazy. So... I enlisted Harry's help. I am now going to try to go to bed at 10 (for 2 nights in a row now I was asleep at 11), and instead of sleeping in the morning after I get the girls off to school for that last half hour, I am exercising in my living room in my footie pjs! This morning was my second morning of it! (Gotta love Richard Simmons! ;D) I am trying to drink more water at work, and I am trying not to procrastinate. I am working at it...
I've finally reached breaking point. From losing a ton of weight and feeling fabulous after my x left in December, from March onwards I have been BALLOONING. I now have 20 pounds to lose - AGAIN and not a single item in my wardrobe fits me without gaping or bulging - its disgusting. The idea of being naked in front of someone makes me feel sick - hell, even looking at myself in the bath makes me feel nauseous!
Have signed up with a personal trainer 3x a week, booked a tennis lesson every Monday evening and have signed up for a pilates introduction course. Thank God classes are so cheap out here.
Trainer thinks I can lose 3 - 5 kilos a month (6-10 pounds roughly). BUT he wants me to cut out sugar and alcohol. Oh well, I guess some sacrifices must be made.
I go for my weigh in tomorrow evening and fully intend to post the humiliating results up here to motivate myself. Starting always seems the hardest bit - once you start losing the momentum builds. Well, I've lost 35 pounds before now in 3 months so I can do it again.
Wish me luck
