I am feeling so much better at the moment, I feel like I am back to my old self and ready to continue on with my journey :)
I have lost a tiny bit of weight bringing my total loss (as of this morning) to 19.1 kg (42 lb). My exercise has still been non-existent, but I have plans to change all of that as of today. I am going to re-start the 30 Day Shred. I know it's going to hurt, but I also know that's it is totally worth it.
|bring it on!|
I also have plans to start the 100 push-ups program and re-start the 200 squats program. I figured that I could do both together considering one uses legs and the other arms - it just made sense to me. My treadmill will be making a comeback as well. I have missed my intervals, they always make me feel so good.
I actually managed to run outside the other day. It wasn't far at all, but it's a start. Hubby and I had taken the kids to the park which is next to a football oval. I did one lap (told you it wasn't far) of the oval with a child on either side of me holding my hands. It wasn't the easiest way to run, but I was happy with the fact that it was outside. I am even considering going back to the oval to run, I feel more comfortable running there than on the roads.
Alan and I went for a bike ride the other day and I only had 1 accident.....
Of course Alan
dropped his bike and rushed to my side to help me up nearly fell off of his bike from laughing so hard. I wasn't hurt so we continued to ride for around 30 mins. We stumbled upon a fantastic bike / running track that we will be sure to visit again. It will also be a great place to take the kids riding. The tracks are all cemented with painted lines - they are just like mini roads and it's all set in parkland with no roads in sight. I can't believe we've never been there before!
I have officially cancelled my gym membership and I feel as though a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. If feels so good to not have to worry about what time it is and whether or not I have time to get to the gym. I can do the 30 Day Shred in the time it takes me to get to and from the gym. The only thing I will miss is the weights and possibly the cross-trainer (purely for the calorie burn). I am still considering joining the 24 hour gym in July, but I'll just wait and see how I feel then.
