What about skipping in the backyard in the early morning or late arvo when its cool? Thats what i'm going to do!

Pilates is very low impact and works on your core. Strengthening and toning your whole stomach area (abs, obliques) and back. Its also good for flexability and just overall trimming your tummy and giving you more definition in that area. Its quite hard!!! Very relaxing though, focussing A LOT on breathing.

Ouch, pilates *grimaces* - I really need to start that again - I am so inflexible I sometimes think my calves and hammies are permanently shortened from cycling. :roll:

WOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO I lost 900grams!!! Now sitting on 60.9kgs and feeling GREAT!

Just for my own records, a summary of last week:

*From tues - wed I had a big peak in weight, going up to 62.4kgs, then from Thurs, went down a little bit each day. Note to self, don't stress about mid week weight peaks :P

*I've been drinking 1-2 cups of hot water with fresh lemon juice in it each day. I've read that it helps to speed up the metabolism as well as cleanse the liver AND it has helped me to no end in curing cravings, it makes me feel satisfied and full.

*Light night time exercise after dinner. Be it a 20-30min walk, pilates or throwing the frisbee around for 20-30mins with hubby and the dogs.

*Doing my daily food charts up on a spreadsheet the night before, working out how many cals/fat/carbs/protein/fibre i've had and keeping it well within my limits.

*Not eating ANYTHING at least 2hrs before bed. Even though i'm not hungry as I fill up on dinner, out of habit and boredom I want to eat, so the exercise after dinner is really helping with that.

I'm not expecting a huge loss next week, but 60.5kgs would be nice!

I start martial arts on Monday, can't wait! Going to start out with a cardio combat class which apparently caters for all fitness levels, can't wait :D

I have to work 2 full 10hr days on Tuesday and Wednesday, so i'll prob only get in a walk/run before work and pilates or weights after work, BUT I will be on my feet all day running around so that should be fine.

Thanks girls :D

Yes Sarah, i'm LOVING pilates, very relaxing with all the breathing and stretching type stuff and I can really feel it working in my tummy. After I finish my stomach feels really hard without me flexing, but then goes soft again 20mins or so later :P I'm really hoping it will shape and tone my stomach as that is my main fatty area, but might I say it was looking quite flat this morning :D

Woo hoo, well done on the great loss girl! Sounds like you've been working hard! The hot water with fresh lemon thing is interesting.. it would definitely satisfy you, and what it actually does is level out the acid levels in your tummy to "settle" it. A lot of people drink it cos it they can't eat brekkie in the mornings because they feel nauseous, and this remedy helps!

Good luck for Martial arts, it'll be loads of fun!

And good luck for those 10 hr days, doesn't sound like fun at all!!

Em xoxo

I forgot to mention that we're going on holidays up at Kira Beach from the 18th of next month with hubby, his ill Mother and his Brother and I REALLY want to have a bikini body by then - I hope I have one!!!

Thanks Em! The 10hr days are at the vet clinic where i'll be filling in for the full time nurse who is on holidays, and I LOVE it there, so it works out well - getting paid for something I love doing, can't ask for more than that :D
