Hi ive really had enough now I need to loose about a stone well thats what wii fit says lol
I thought it maybe helpful to find a buddy who wants to loose weight aswell to egg each other on then I think im more likely to stick with it im a stay at home mum to a two year old so finding time for exercise is getting difficult. Im writing up a healthy shopping list tonight and I plan to start my diet tomorow, I actually eaten three magnums today which is terrible lol

Welldone yeah just a little at a time. Even if it just 5 mins and you build it up over time. When I first started exercising two years ago I hadnt done any for years I only could do 5 mins on crosstrainer it took a while till I could do up to 40 mins. Just go at your own pace :-) xx

I walk for 3 hours today but had a picnic aswell but was good. Going to try and fit in some crosstrainer exercise tonight aswell xx

rubieblue25 Sun 14-Jul-13 00:24:11

Clothes shopping defenitly counts as exercise ,well i hope it does as i do it often enough but ive been cutting down on it just now as i am waiting until i am two sizes smaller before i buy new clothes .I am going to a bbq tomorrow so need willpower to resist having more than burger as that will be half my daily intake .Hope you are all doing well and sticking to it xx

karrie8 Sat 13-Jul-13 12:48:51

I just useing my wii fit to weigh myself at the moment.
I think you do just have to get new scales once in a while. How are we all doing? Im going to weigh myself on monday I hope ive lost some lol
Yesterday I went on crosstrainer for 40 mins and was sweating so I should think that done me good. And today ive walk for 3 hours clothes shopping if that counts anyway but I didnt stop lol x

rubieblue25 Fri 12-Jul-13 18:51:43

Hi guys any recomendations for good bathroom scales ,mine are really cheap ones and they are giving me one reading then a minute later a different reading.dont worry i dont weigh myself every minute its just because i was in shock at first reading as it was saying id lost nearly a stone in a week lol

I'm sure I've burned off at least a million calories in stress today. Never ever check your work emails when you are on holiday!

karrie8 Tue 09-Jul-13 18:48:26

rubieblue25 Tue 09-Jul-13 18:44:39

karrie8 Tue 09-Jul-13 17:15:23

Welldone on the walking :-)
Yeah its boiling here too, we done an hour and half walk. But I think my son could do more aswell lol

rubieblue25 Tue 09-Jul-13 08:59:21

Walking is a really good form of excercise so as long as we are doing that its good .The wheather where i live is boiling at the moment,after walking half an hour im exhuasted ,kids could walk for hours though but then they are not lugging about 4 extra stone lol

karrie8 Mon 08-Jul-13 09:32:52

My son is two so we always together :-) unless he at dads. We do lots of walking also swimming but have to take nan along if I want to swim myself lol

Moominsarehippos Sun 07-Jul-13 17:53:13

Not sure yet. I work 3 days a week so will try to fit it around that!

Probably go swimming, table tennis and a jog around the park (he can take his bike). He plays tennis so I will probably take him for a knockabout too. I will need to miss my pilates class though (boohoo).

rubieblue25 Sun 07-Jul-13 16:55:53

My kids will be exercising with me they love walking so we will walk to the furtherst park and back and also swimming although i cant really swim much when the little ones are there .i also live across from a leisure centre so theres lots of table tennis ,ice skating and alse gym .What about you guys ?
