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

    Hey. Thanks for the info. I am not training for a race but I am thinking of doing a 3 day walk. I have to start looking for sponsors for it. I will look into the sites and see what I can come up with. Hope you had a good weekend and your week fitness plans went well. Ta ta for now.

    Hey! That's awesome that your plan is working and your seeing the results that you wanted. My running is going well. I am trying to kick it up a bit to build my endurance. I try to add in the elliptical that I have as well. It's good hearing from you :)

    Just dropping by to say hi. I've had a bit of a break from SP so I'm just starting to get back into things. Hope your training is still going well.
