Hello everyone. I know a bit about fitness etc, -it's just a case of following my own advice!

Update 3rd July 2008

Have had a few setbacks- injured feet and knees, and have really lapsed. Put on another 4lbs... Feels like a bit of a catch 22- my feet are not healing because there is too much weight on them, which doesn't help my knees either, but I am limited in exercise options because of the knees and feet, and general fatigue...

Oh well, I'll dust myself off and try again!

Be nice to get my belly flattened a bit so people can stop asking me if I'm pregnant.

Update 22/11/08:

Have been doing really well with exercise- very consistent for the last 4 months- I got an exercise bike and use it for 30 mins every day.

Update 9/05/09: Lost total 21lbs (put some on before I started losing it) now at 9st 10lbs :)

Member Since: 9/16/2007

Fitness Minutes: 12,058

My Goals:
Establish & maintain a healthy eating and exercise routine and lifestyle.

Gradually increase how much I am able to do.

Get up to 50 pressups, 10 chinups and 5mins of doing the plank. Get under 4mins for 1000m on the rower. Eventually maybe under 3:30. (Would love to be able to do 30-60 mins hard cardio, not sure if it's possible with my health probs but maybe!)
Lose around 30lbs of fat, and gain around 7-14lbs of muscle (guessing) LOOOOOONG term goals!

My Program:
Taking vitamins every day, aim to meditate daily

Stationary biking 30 mins per day, gradually increasing intensity. Can be done in several sessions or in one go.

Strength training- haven't got into a routine with this yet.

Personal Information:
27 yrs old Living in England

Have chronic fatigue and muscle pain (fibromyalgia) and weakness in neck & lower back following injury.

Have Plantar fasciitis and patellar tendonitis, which means I can't be on my feet for long and I also have to be careful not to put strain on my knees. Losing some excess baggage would help.

Other Information:
Books I have found useful:
Frederic Delavier -Strength Training Anatomy (original & womens edition)
Nicole Ronsard - Beyond cellulite
Susan Jeffers- Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway
Elaine N. Aron - The Highly Sensitive Person
Eileen Mulligan- Life coaching

    Good Morning,

    I saw this and had to share, sometimes I think we forget just how amazing we really are:

    "Your life is something opaque, not transparent, as long as you look at it in an ordinary human way. But if you hold it up against the light of God's goodness, it shines and turns transparent, radiant and bright. And then you ask yourself in amazement: Is this really my own life I see before me?"
    - Albert Schweitzer

    Enjoy the journey!

    I thought this was worth sharing:

    " Just as the pure crystal takes color from the object which is nearest to it, so the mind, when it is cleared of thought-waves, achieves sameness or identity with the object of its concentration."

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I thought this was worth sharing,

    " Through the rise and fall of empires, through the creation of vast bodies of symbols that give shape to our dreams; through the forging of magic keys with which to unlock the mysteries of creation...through it all we are marching from epoch to epoch towards the fullest realization of our soul.

    "Yes, we are coming, the pilgrims, one and all- coming to our true inheritance of the world, we are ever broading our consciousness, ever seeking a higher and higher unity; ever approaching nearer to the one universal truth which is the ALL-comprehensive all embracing"

    Rabindranath Tagore, 1861-1941

    hi~ I saw your comment about your neighbors snickering at you for bike riding... You aren't anywhere near snicker material... They must be self-absorbed/insecure jerks! Don't let 'em get you down! emoticon
