Hello Dear Reader,
I was contacted by moneysupermarket.com with an offer that I won't take up but I will pass on to fellow readers and bloggers. They want to offer bloggers a month's free gym membership and then see if you are motivated enough after a free month to continue using it.
As you know, or may not know if you're a new reader, I was reluctant to join the gym as I felt I wouldn't use my membership and that gyms were not for me. My first tentative steps into a gym took me into a world that I initially found strange and soon became a habit that I just can't break. Diet alone just doesn't work for me, but a combination of diet and exercise has reduced me from a size 18 to a size 14 and I'm not stopping there! My weight has reduced from 14/4 to 12/12 and I hope to hit my target of 11 stone within a year. I will admit, it's vanity, self consciousness and a degree of self loathing that keeps me going and, although it's a cheesy catch phrase....................this time is the last time I am ever going to lose weight.
I'm following advice and making successive workouts harder and try to push myself a little bit further. I squat deeper, I add another 10 kilos, I tighten the brake more and more on the spin bike and I add more reps. If it gets easier then I just make it harder.
So many of you have been reading this blog for years and know that I don't part with money easily and certainly don't spend money needlessly. I keep going to the gym as I'm not prepared to give up on the investment in myself. I think many women will get what I'm about to say. I put off looking after me for years and years and looked after everyone else and didn't put myself on the list, let alone at the top of the list. I woke up to the fact that I was tired from carrying around the weight of a small child and was out of breath just walking up a steep hill. I found out very quickly that I was healthy and strong and that the only thing that was getting in the way of a slimmer and more importantly healthy me was quite simply eating less and moving more. Now, I've no need of a month's free gym membership so I'm going to pass this onto as many bloggers who want this. See the article below and follow the link!!!!
Don't say I never give you anything. I'm going to give you firmer bits and less dangly bingo wings!
