I can’t believe how quickly I’ve lost weight. I’m almost at my ideal size. I got a timetable of classes available at my gym and wrote out my own schedule of the classes I could do and put it on my fridge. I did one to two classes a day (apart from New Year’s Eve because the gym was shut). I also walked my dog every day, which helped. I’ve never done any aerobics classes before and always thought people who do them look completely hilarious, but I really enjoyed them! They were great. I did one called Body Attack. The instructor said if you stick at it you can lose 900 calories per class. It was a great workout and the moves were actually quite fun. I’m going to calm down with the amount of classes I do now - I’ve lost most of the weight, I’m just going to make sure I don’t stop going to the gym and eating so badly like I did over Christmas. I’m going to write a new timetable that I can stick to as well. Don’t let this make you feel guilty for not going to the gym as much as this – it’s part of my job. My neighbour Leanne has just started a new fitness regime. She’s a solicitor so works long hours and doesn’t have time to go to the gym that much. She’s started cycling to work and back and goes to the gym on a Saturday. Doing a bit of exercise in the morning gives you a lift for the day. Exercising releases endorphins, which make you feel happy. Getting fit and feeling happy, what more can you ask for?
