Did 30 mins and 12k smile

After being called a fat cow yesterday I decided today I will get on the cross trainer, now my back is better, and get rid of those pounds.
I've been feeling really bloated after eating loads of carbs the last 2 weeks plus I can't fit into most of my already oversize summer dresses so I'll be cutting down on the carbs and double whammy my weight loss.

Wish me luck and please join me smile

The endorphins kicked in so I'm happy

I was only going to do 10 mins on the crosstrainer but my body was happy to go to 12k which was 30 mins. Once I started getting out of breath a bit I thought well if I keep going till my body tells me to stop, which it did, so I did, then I'll be getting a good cardio workout.

I'm delighted I've finally crossed that exercise hurdle, it's taken a while but I'm going to fully embrace it.

Well done!

But who the hell called you a fat cow? angry

A horrible woman who lives around the corner.

I was more upset that I'd put on so much weight that someone could use that as an insult against me as opposed to being called it.

I'm 5 6' and a size 16 although I'm more of an 18 now so now is the time for action.

For lunch I've eaten a bowl of lettuce, mozzarella cheese, ham, tomato, avocado followed by strawberries and grapes and a black coffee.

I've also bought berrocca for when I feel tired so I don't snack like usual.

Brilliant, well done you! Turning what that nasty woman said into such a positive shows how strong you are!

Well done you! I wish I had the motivation to exercise (ex-jogger here!) but I'm just too embarrassed blush

Focusing on the diet instead and, I know it sounds cheesy, but nothing feels better than when you clean up your eating and feel healthier for it (plus I can fit in my clothes again, yey!)

Keep up the good work grin

That's why I have a cross trainer in the corner of my living room, and even then I haven't used it for a year shock

You could go for a brisk walk instead of jogging to gear yourself up

I would love a cross trainer, pretty sure my downstairs neighbour wouldn't though grin

I know, I really should walk more (I get the bus to work when it would take 30 minutes to walk there!) I have no excuse, apart from I'm just plain lazy sad

Good luck. I have a cross trainer that hasn't been used for a while either .... but I've joined a gym and go 4 times a week.
