    Well- following the good lead of you guys I have decided to post my exercise diary too.

    I am going to aim for 3 sessions per week. This is what I will be doing to begin with.

    5 mins warm-up on treadmill - walking at 6.0kph

    30 mins X-Trainer - Hill/Interval, speed 8-9kph

    Weights - Leg press, lat pulldown, chest press, shoulder press, tricep pulldowns, sit ups, back raises

    As I get fitter I hope to start doing some classes too. If I can pluck up the courage to do Bodypump or Bodycombat !!!!

    Wish me luck!

    Great to see another exercise diary!

    You are soooo close to goal also so a great motivation to keep going. Bodypump is awesome i really loved it hubby and I both used to do it.

    I'm going to post every day I do something - I'm thinking of going today too - just some CV not weights - aching from yesterday and shouldn't be doing the weights every day anyway. What's happening to us?!!!!!


    Check out my new ticker too - have put how many sessions I want to do in sept - 3 per week and I am going to count down on my ticker too - hopefully that would also motivate to do it (thanks to Taz for idea)

    Hi Bren - had a hopeless week last week. Pulled a muscle in my neck - pulling a jumper over my head - how ridiculous!!!

    Probably still couldv'e gone to gym and just gone on the treadmill and trained legs but didn't really feel up to it - then at the weekend when my neck was better, my willpower deserted me. Feel quite pathetic about it really - am going tonight and will do more cardio than usual to try and make up for it.

    Sorry - shame on me!!!!

    Will do better this week - promise!!

    Going to hold you to that!

    Isn't it the way when you miss a day it can very easily turn into 2 , 3 or then the week and then going back for that first time you feel guilty and it's such an effort to find that motivation....

    Well done you!

    Today is my day off I've done 4 days in a row. Although I did do 10 mins of floor exercises this morning and you know I may want to go for a walk this arvo. Yay I just said WANT TO, I think I may have found my passion for the exercise again!!!

    Also meeting with a CDC on Monday and thinking of starting it to kick my last 18lbs.
