    I'm still swinging in the shadows! Gradually working my way through Kettleworx again. Am amazed at how much more I can do with 8kg now. To think I had to use two hands to do a one arm press. Don't ask!

    I have my son staying with me for a long weekend (27) and he came in whilst I was doing last 20mins of session. Sat quiet as a mouse in the corner of the room (unheard of) and commented at the end how impressed he was. It turns out he had been giving the bell a try the day before. Respect at last.

    Well done Emma. You'll feel it after the first session or two but think of it doing you good. I have done week 4 resistance and cardio after a two week break and am struggling to climb the stairs. Boy, do I ache!

    It's worth it though. Every time I look in the mirror I thank Ryan!

    It just goes to show how fragile we are. I read somewhere that 99% of people put weight back on so the challenge is to find a way to be in the 1%. Wanting it badly is half of the battle.

    Hi Everyone - just checking in to let you all know I'm still here but hardly on Minimims now as so busy. Damn life getting in the way! Still swinging although reduced down to 2 Core sessions per week as I've been doing the C25k. Finished that successfully on Saturday - cannot believe I can run for just short of 5k in 30 mins! My plan for between now and Christmas is to run twice and kettlebell twice a week. Still losing weight and trying to find a happy maintenance medium which is something I thought I would never say!

    Love to all my fellow Swingers. xxx
    Sue


    Kettleworx:
    98cm lost over 7 rounds of Kettleworx and Kettleworx Advanced Programmes.
    Continue to do 3 sessions per week, alternating the basic and advanced programmes using a range of bells between 5kg and 10kg.

    Weight Loss:
    YEAR 1: 5 STONE 9 LBS LOST! TARGET ADJUSTED FROM 11 STONE TO 10 STONE
    YEAR 2: GOAL OF 10 STONE REACHED ON WEEK 69, 1st SEPTEMBER 2012

    OPERATION BUFFER STARTS NOW - I plan to lose 4-5lbs which will help me in my quest to remain under the 10 stone barrier for the rest of my life. I will continue to weigh in every Saturday and continue to follow my exercise programme. I shall follow the WW ProPoints regime during the week and then kick back slightly at the weekends. I feel like a weight (ha ha) has been lifted off my shoulders and I will do whatever I need to to maintain my weight.

    C25K - started 1 October 2012 and finished 1 December 2012. Record so far is 4.5k in 30 minutes, running at 5.5mph on my treadmill. Phew!

    Go you when I'm back up to normal ( what ever that is lol!!) speed - I want to start the 25k maybe come spring/ summer - have started 2 x kettlercise a week Monday morn and Thursday evening .. Gives me a 3 day repair and rebuild and relax muscles in between - takes me 3 days to get over aches and pains at the moment!

    Also reading Marks Daily Apple - I have come to the conclusion that less is more, and quality over qty - I think adding in some of the 25k at a later date will be a good thing

    Hi all, I have been reading through all the kettlebell forum's and googled my eyes out and would love to try it, I've seen through various comments thats Kettleworx seems popular but is this advisable for a beginner that does no exercise at all and has alot of weight to lose. Is 1 ball enough or would I need various weights or is there a beginner ball weight any feedback would be greatly appreciated . . . . Thankyou

    Hiya

    I started as a complete beginner after having had a c section. You will ache like mad the first few times but you just need to listen to ur body. Most people start with a 5kg weight and move up from there when ready. I made the mistake originally and bought a 5lb one it really was too light.
    Best bell to go for would be an iron one as vinyl can be too bulky, I got mine from tesco and it was about 10. If you didn't want to invest in the kettleworx programme straight away there are plenty of you tube videos to get you started x

    Omg, I have had 3 months out and finally caved in to my inner trainer and dusted off my bells today!
    Thought I would break back in gently with fast fat burn and fast abs, managed a total of about 7 minutes of the 10 minute DVD and didn't even attempt fast abs!
    Hadn't realised how much I had achieved until I realised how unfit I have become!!

    Come on Emma! You can do it!
    I've not done for the last as I always workout with my stepsister and my brother in law watches all the kids. But his brother died suddenly last week and it's really knocked us all out of kilter x
