I think I have found my new best friend, and it is exercise!!!!
August so far has been amazing for me! I have now lost 7.5lbs on Rosemary Conley, losing 4.5lbs in Wk1, 3.5lbs in Wk2 and having a gain of 0.5lbs in Wk3. I am thrilled. My personal goal is to lose 1lb a week, anything more is a bonus.
My schedule has gotten really hectic in August for exercise, but I am loving it. It looks like this :-
Mon – Rosemary Conley exercise class
Tues – Couch to 5k program
Wed – Rosemary Conley weigh in and exercise class
Thurs – Couch to 5k program
Fri – Buggyfit
Sat – Bootcamp – yes you have read that right!
Sun – Couch to 5k program.
Couch to 5k is a running program that says it can get you from being a couch potato to running 5k in 9weeks. As I have always wanted to run, I thought why not? Running is meant to be the best calorie burner out there. It is free, I don’t need to attend gym and I can do my program either in the afternoon, pushing the buggy or at night. Perfect. I have just completed Wk1 and so far so good, roll on Wk2.
Bootcamp is a 1hr exercise class I do on a Saturday morning, down on Felixstowe beach. It is military training, with loads of running, beach work, ab work, stair work, strength work, oh heck just everything! I get there all fired up, I start and I think OMG, what am I doing!!!! I finish it and I am just so proud of myself!
I realise that the exercise may affect my weightloss but then I figure I would rather be fit and healthy and not get hung up on what the scale says!
So keep watching this space, as who knows where it is going!
