So, as one of my goals for this year is to be healthy, I have started it as I hope I can carry on.
I wasn’t silly enough to start my new year’s goals on New Year’s day as they just wouldn’t happen, so I thought I’d start them yesterday (4th Jan) which is when most people went back to work and life returns to some kind of normality.
I was planning on logging my weight/body change on here and I think I will (if you guys don’t mind) but I don’t think I’m going to log my starting weight-just what I lose (fingers crossed) each week.
I don’t want to be too unrealistic so I have set myself a target – I’d like to be 21lb’s lighter by August 25th – which is 2 days before I plan on jetting off to Australia S
That gives me 33 weeks – which is an average of just over 0.6lbs to lose each week. I am going to work on the basis of losing 1lb every week-that way, it’ll be lost gradually and I won’t be kicking myself one week if I don’t lose any or only lose ½ - I have time to play with!
So, obviously as this is my first post – I have nothing to report re: any loses, however day 1 went pretty well – I started with a session of the 30day shred (although I only managed 2 out of the 3 levels as I stupidly tried to do it without having eaten a thing and nearly passed out – slap on the wrist for me)!
I then went to my first Zumba class, which was, well different! I did enjoy it and I can see it will be something I come to really enjoy going to, but yesterday I felt a little out of my comfort zone. For someone who has no rhythm, it was a little difficult to follow at times – if you’ve ever been to a class yourself, I’m the one that was pretty much just doing my own little thing in corner (I’m sure every class has one of those-well I hope so anyway).
Anyway, I’m going to give Shred a rest for tonight as I’m feeling rather delicate (I am extremely unfit – taking the stairs rather than the escalator in a shopping centre is my kind of exercise, so everything hurts today) and do day 2 tomorrow. I don’t want to overdo it and not be able to do anything-you got to walk before you can run (and this is actually true in my case).
I am going to pop out this weekend and purchase some proper trainers – I don’t think converse trainers are really made for exercise and I’m going to give the whole ‘couch to 5k’ plan a go (although I’m not overly confident on this as I have an extremely weak knee and I’ve been told that jogging is one of the most intensive things to do for knees – BUT I am going to give it a go)!
I am also going to sit down tonight and plan some lunch box ideas. I have the bonus of a hob; oven and microwave in work so can take pretty much anything in with me, so no excuses! What are your favourite lunch box idea’s (no fish recipes please – phobic here)
Each week I will post my loss etc but I can assure you it’ll be literally a very short post-nothing like this at all – as long as you all don’t mind C
How are your resolutions/goals going so far?
