Well, despite any good intentions I think I’m going to have to accept my shape the way it is. I am a bit more toned, particularly on my legs but I don’t think I will ever have muscular arms so I’m stuck with my little twig arms. I’ve decided that a more worthwhile goal will be to focus on my fitness rather than shape, and I’m starting up a new goal to exercise regularly.

I tried a different work out last night and it was a lot more challenging than what I normally do – I couldn’t keep up in some parts cause the movements were so fast and varied. BUT I had so much more fun and it really energised me. I think I’ve been taking it too easy, and working harder made me feel like what I was doing was more worthwhile. So, out with the old plan. Instead of doing a 1 hour slow & gentle (boring!) workout, I’m going to carry on with the 30 minutes intense one and see how it goes.
I’ve had a bug for the past few weeks and I’m only just managing to shake it off. Haven’t had a proper workout for ages now, but I have been walking a lot so at least I’ve still been active. Might try and exercise outside now the weather is getting nicer.
I gave up on this goal at some point last year. Now my life is a bit more settled I think it’s about time I got those exercise videos out of the box and start paying more attention to eating healthily.
I am very slim for my height but I eat junky sugary foods all the time which I need to cut down on. My dad and my grandma were both diagnosed with diabetes, and after reading up on a few things I’ve found that you can pretty much prevent that type of diabetes by managing your diet in the right way.
I want to bulk up a bit so I’m going to tackle that by eating more proteins and carbs, and try and make my portions larger or eat a starter/side/dessert with my main meal.
I already walk for at least 30 minutes a day, I also want to start having a planned exercise session at least once a week, and then build up to 3 times a week.
until I move out, then I can turn one of the spare rooms into a weights room and really get on with things.

Once I’ve figured out all the features I’ll set up my own training plan so I can monitor exactly what I do.
I had to run to catch my train this morning, and by the time I reached it I could hardly breathe! I am so unfit!! I have been putting this off so much, I need to create an exercise plan so I can get into a routine and stick to it.
Back down again, 6540 steps yesterday. Was sat down all day at work and then sat down at my sewing machine when I got home. I guess it’s not bad considering that I didn’t make an effort.
9352 steps yesterday, that’s more like it! Nearly at the 10k mark.
5655 steps yesterday. I am hoping that the amount I walk at the weekend will make up for my slacking!
Going to take a walk into town during my luchbreak today so that should boost my total a bit.
