OK its going global as of today I weigh 188lbs and I feel it! Its not big and its not clever to be this big. I now need to do something about it so here I am going to share my progress, slip ups and goals with you.
What do I want out of this? Well, I want to be able to go in a shop and pick up and item and try on and it look nice without sucking in my belly or trying to squash it into ‘scuba pants’.
GOAL WEIGHT 147Lbs – time scale 20 weeks – End February 2014
Mini Goals – End November – 12lb loss
Christmas – 20lb loss
I am never going to be a 9st person I think 10.5 stone is more reasonable.
Today was day 1 of the exercise plan I have until the 26th October to be able to run 5k I could do it last year so I am hoping I can get back there quickly.
So dusted off the trainers, downloaded my runkeeper app and with inhaler and iphone in hand I set off. A perfect evening it had just got dark and was cold or a lot colder than it has recently been. I walked the end of the road and then started my ‘Joggage’ as it has been nicknamed. I decided as it has been a year since my last fitness effort to try and run and walk routine for 20 minutes just to get me out and out of breath.
I started off fine and just as I hit 0.3 of a mile. I thought I was doing so well I would have a little sprint (if you could call it that). From the perception of an onlooker I probably looked like some large lady running to buy the last cake in the shop. Well, that little sprint blew it for me.
I tried walking till I got my breath back but no I was struggling and started a wheeze. Such a cop out and so annoyed with myself! Trainers are in my bag. Though I am not sure that I will get some joggaging done on a girls weekend but the thought is there in my head.
If not then Monday will be my next venture out.
Have a look at this link, this looks amazing
