Fitness update

Oh my word - Suzanne is putting me to shame!

Or kicking my butt into gear...

It's really the same thing :) because one way or the other I'm feeling more motivated to exercise.

I read on Suzanne's blog that she's lost 12 pounds!!! I would be ECSTATIC if that could happen to me.

Let's recap my fitness progress, shall we?

  • I have been using a pedometer to track my steps every day since the Easter weekend (this is week 4) and yesterday, for the first time EVER, I reached 10 000 steps! Woohooo!!!

  • I am now making coaching appointments at the gym just to get me there ;)

  • When I'm not going to gym, I am walking 10 - 15 minutes a day.

  • I am drinking green tea like crazy - hey, it helps me with the weight loss.

  • And of course, trying to stay away from the chocolate

I had my cholesterol, blood pressure and glucose tested yesterday and thankfully, everything is perfect, as it usually is.

Do you know your numbers?

However, I did another clothes declutter on the weekend and this time I actually fit on each item of clothing.

And you know what? It is SCARY to see how much weight I've put on.

I'm going to stop making excuses about the op last year - yes, my stomach is not as flat as it was before but that is no excuse.

Besides which, I can't afford to replace my 4 nice pant suits that no longer fit me! I went looking at Edgars and Woolies for suits on the weekend and at R1000 each, um, no thanks.

So I bought handbags instead.

Because they fit no matter what the size of my butt :)

It's called priorities :)

How are you doing, health and fitness-wise?

Gotta love the handbags.

I'm working on a 14 pound weight loss, only 10 more to go before my birthday in June!!
