Lovely to hear from you...
Wow, you have done well so far - how long have you been on a health kick for? Actually, doesnt really matter - Im inspired already. It must be difficult to stay motivated out there - especially when its really hot.. I don't really like the gym scene myself, so Im not tempted to go down that path. How do you find the eliptical trainer? My sister swears by them, but (and this is probably why I have trouble losing weight) i find them a real chore..it's all I can muster to stay on the treadmill for 50minutes without dying of boredom, but then, I heard someone once say - You're not there for entertainment - if you want to be entertained, read a book or go to the movies..
I find it really hard to get excited about exercise.I've tried talking books on an ipod, Ive tried lots of things, but I cant usually last more than a few weeks if that. Do you find dropping weight gives you the motivation you need to keep going?
And what about diet - have you changed much about what you eat (apart from giving up alcohol?)
I'd be interested to hear how you've approached it. I always tell myself I eat well, but then I look at my portion sizes and its pretty obvious where I'm coming unstuck...
Anyway, today i managed 50 mins on the treadmill walk/run and a little incline work, so that's better than nothing - Im in Brissy, so working up a sweat wasnt much trouble with the humidity we're having!
talk to you soon
