Oh groan....The Christmas holls were a total pig-out-fest. I think I stayed in two nights out of ten, ate all round me, sat on the couch for hours watching crap tv. Astonishingly, the weather has been dry here for the past month, so I can't use bad weather as an excuse to not exercise, unfortunately. I've put on 5lbs in 2 weeks, purely from mindless eating. I'm almost looking forward to going back to work on Monday!! Almost...
Right so, it's time to get off my (very comfortable) couch and start exercising every day.
These are my new goals and I'm going to stick to them this time.
160lbs by end January 2009;
154lbs by end February 2009;
148lbs by end March 2009;
146lbs by 11th April 2009 (EASTER);
145lbs by my 40th birthday, 23rd April 2009
Happy new year everyone!!

I've been knocked out with a cough and cold for the past week, I'm feeling really miserable and had to take a couple of days off work. Thank goodness for my laptop!!! I'd be totally bored without the internet!
Hopefully, I'll go back to work tomorrow.
The gym is a distant memory, sob.....

Well, Saturday was much better than I expected. Some of the exercises were difficult. The elliptical nearly killed me - fifteen minutes at different resistances, phew. The sweat!!! I used muscles on Saturday that I never knew I had. My trainer had a program prepared for me - I did 60 mins cardio on various machines (bike, treadmill, rowing, elliptical) and 20 mins using weights. I'm to follow this for the first 3 weeks, then we step it up a notch. Eeeek! Help!!
I was a little sore on Sunday, but not too seized up. It could have been a lot worse!
So, I'm going back again tonight, Monday, for more punishment....
