I'm Becs and today I started Week 1.Phewf it was tough - but I managed it and after a shower i felt amazing and my mood has been up all day! I left the house at 6am, we live in a rural village that is extremely steep and hilly - there was no-one around, but i think i need to find a decent route. (only lived here since last year and not too sure yet where the 'flattest' distances are outside of the village.
I turned 30 this year and am a full time mum (at the moment) to my daughter who's 8 and my son who's 3. In June i weighed in at my heaviest ever and have since lost 1 stone. Over the last month i've been using the Wii fit and it has really given me the bug to exercise. After chatting to a few friends through the OU we set up our own little FB page to encourage each other along and lose weight / get fit. A couple of them mentioned this to me on Saturday and I googled it, and just went for it!
I've already got decent trainers, just need a better sports bra, and now a new mp3 player as sadly my ipod recently gave up the ghost -so i couldnt use the podcast for today. I tried jogging to music, but found it difficult to time myself and focus with my watch and my rubbish headphones falling out al the time (will buy a new pair tomorrow).
Bring on Wednesday, jogging along with Laura and hopefully feeling a little less like i'm going to DIE! Ha ha, Luckliy my other half used to be a keen runner so he gave me lots of breathing tips (as i have NEVER ran before) and friends have given me good posture and injury prevention tips.
How are you all finding it?
