Kelvi - jogging is probably THE best thing I've ever done in terms of fitness. I've never ever been even close to this fit in my life, it feels GREAT. I can't reccommend jogging enough. 12 weeks ago I couldn't jog 1k, now I'm up to 6... you can see improvement relatively quickly with jogging... which makes me sooo motivated. And it certainly helps with weight loss... but to be honest I'm really into the jogging for its own sake now. I can't wait to be able to do 10k funruns competitively... and I want to do a half marathon next year!
BD - thanks for your comments, I didn't realise the instant porridge was like that. I'll have a look for some better stuff that's still quick/convenient once this box runs out, or failing that I guess I'll stick to All Bran the mornings I don't have time to cook the good porridge... man I love porridge... I wish it was breakfast time right now hehe... I'm trying to be more disciplined with my bedtimes starting this week (from Monday), I'm getting up at like 5 or 6 for my workouts, which I don't want to change - that time works for me... but yeah to get 8 hours sleep that means lights out by 9 or 10 which can be hard. The 3 coffees on Monday is not my regular - that was because of the lack of sleep from Sunday night. I'm not usually stressed either, just last week I had a lot of stuff to take care of, but I did it all... or at least all of it that was stressing me out. But thanks for the kick in the bum on that one, I 'knew' I should sleep 8 hours a night, but having someone else tell me off for not doing it helps I think!
