Well...... On Friday I bit the bullet and went and joined the new gym that has just opened up in town
The gym is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week, so you can go when ever you like! not that I would go in the middle of the night lol. All the machines have their own tv and 15 channels for you to choose from!
Today I used every excuse possible to not go... but I kicked myself up the butt and went and did a work out... I only did 30 mins on the bike but holy cow the sweat was dripping off me... I havent done any form of exercise at all since Craig and I had the accident.... nearly 14 weeks ago.
While I was peddling away, I was surfing the channels to find something to watch.... I stumbled across Dr Oz and he was talking about your real age. I dont usually watch his show, but this one got me intrigued. It certainly made the time on the bike go faster!
After I fell of the bike (my legs were soooo wobbly lol) I drove home and then grabbed my laptop and googled the REAL LIFE TEST and decided I would do the test :O Most of you know that I turn 40 at the end of next month.... well, my real age came up as 45. I nearly had a heart attack right there and then... I knew that I had put on weight and that I was unfit,and I thought I ate reasonably well (and drank too much too lol) but I wasnt prepared to see that answer :)
I am sooooo glad that I went to the gym today and saw that show. From now on in I determined that I am going to get my real age down to below what age that I actually am! I went into town again and went and bought this book
No, this is not just going to join all of the 100's of diet and recipe books that I have accumulated over the years.... I have read a few articles about this diet and I have also had a good look at it at the book store on several occasions. I really think that I can stick to this one as it actually contains all of the foods that I eat :)
So, it is 5 1/2 weeks until my birthday and I am hoping to loose at least 6 kilos in that time! And reward myself with a new dress and shoes (if this damn ankle will let me ggrrr) to celebrate!
