Hello everyone - I'm new here (just joined this afternoon) and am really keen to up my exercise and lose some serious weight!
I'm not long back from having spent the winter in France, and while I was away did hardly any exercise - despite having access to the wonderful Morvan Forest and a dog! We also had a very busy Christmas and New Year with a host of visitors staying with us over a fortnight or so during the holidays - so rather too much eating. And don't get me started on the wine!
Anyway - now we're home and I have to take myself in hand. I weighed myself last Thursday, so this will be my weigh-in day. I was 12st 12.8lb and I'm looking to lose 4st (or thereabouts). My exercise regime has started again this week. I go to two classes (I've upped it from just the one) a week - Zumba on a Monday and Fitsteps on a Thursday, and I do three workout videos a week. I also go for a long walk every Saturday with my best friend and our dogs.
I'm going to pay closer attention to my diet though. I'm a demon with crisps and I have a sweet tooth. I can go for weeks being good, and then I have a blowout and eat a giant bar of chocolate, or a family-sized pack of crisps. I'd like to blame it on depression or unhappiness, but I'm in annoyingly buoyant and humorous spirits and enjoy my life in every other way!
So I guess I'm going to have to do the best I can and keep checking in here giving and receiving support. I've got a good feeling about this!
