Storytelling was great, I've been booked for a regular Tuesday slot. NSV, I bought a dress from the charity shop, it looks fabulous on me, and, get this, it's a size 8. I shall wear it on the school run to see if anyone notices.
Kato amazing spreadsheets too. I'm having trouble too getting photos on - how do you do it? I just get the google thing too. Took me ages to actually find a fat picture of me too as I refused to have my photo taken most of the time!
Eighty well done on the run (assuming you have gone and haven't just got into the gear!).
IMST an 8 - wow, well done. Great work on the regular storytelling job too.
I've had a weird week, last week/10 days my weight was all over the place, then a period of sorts arrived. So think weight fluctuation was because of that. But, periods. Has anyone else had periods affected by weight loss or exercise? Don't know if it's 'one of those things' or something I should worry about.
Went with a friend to a Zumba class on Monday and loved it. Also loved working out approx how many cals I burned! The equivalent of at least 2 shredding sessions and it was so much fun.
Loss this week of 1.5lbs. NSv, three people commented on my weight loss this week, which in a way is even nicer than watching those numbers go down.
Eighty twenty, thanks. ill def be there again next week but surprised that i still sche two days later, i must ave worked harder than i thought! I saw up thread that you're a runner. Whilst I've done a bit of an about turn with my attitude to exercise don't think it will extend to running. How far do you go?
I'm only running as I've entered a novice triathlon in may. Came to that via swimming, which I love, and cycling. Running was my nemesis. But I was forced into it by a 63 yr old from my swim class. She pushed me out in November and I've run most weeks 2-3 times per week since. Max is 5k, mostly 3-4. Slow speed but times improving & it's certainly a sport you get better at v quickly (unlike swimming!). I like that its free & can be scheduled at any point in my (working from home) day.
eighty wow to the triathlon. This past couple of weeks I've been starting to jog on the treadmill at the gym, haven't felt fit enough before. It feels great to be jogging (I was briefly a member of a local ladies jogging group) and I'm going to try going to a proper jog outside not on the treadmill soon. Feeling a bit rubbish today and yesterday though - think I've got some kind of coldy thing coming on, so am being a bit gentle on myself diet/exercise wise until I feel a bit better.
Made DD a den this morning by throwing a sheet over some chairs and put some toys in there and she's been quiet for ages - it's amazing , usually I have to play with her all the time, so it's a nice break.
Running? I was rubbish at running 20 years ago before I had children and had bad habits. Now?! I don't think I could. Having said that, I really surprised myself with how much I did at Zumba. I didn't have to stop at all, I was leaping around with the hard core zumbaists, though def not as not half as good as them. I have the shred to thank for that so maybe....maybe I could jog. Maybe? Maybe I'll try tonight. I have a poorly girl on the sette so am in all day, mopping brows and trying to get some work done in between. I might be ready for a run round the block.... In the dark!
Triathlon? Will second reasties WOW. When you started did you alternate a lot, running and walking?
