    Hi All

    Now Christmas is over and 2013 is just around the corner I want to start Body Magic and hope to get those awards at class.
    So thought I'd make this thread where we can post our daily Body Magic to help inspire and encourage each other. I've not seen a sticky thread on here so thought It might help to have one here if one of the lovely admin people would like to make it a sticky then feel free.

    I have a HRM too so think I'll starting posting how many calories I've burnt during the exercise too.

    If anyone would like to do a Body Magic challenge then feel free to post :)
    Im really hoping this thread will help give me the motivation I need right now.

    Happy Slimming everyone & here's to a lighter, more toned 2013 to us all :D

    Love Stacey xxxx

    I've had to rejoin recently after a month or so break and Id got my bronze and silver awards but with my new book and fresh start Im starting from bronze again.

    Hopefully I'll be off for run tonight. Got myself a garmin and a hrm for Christmas so have already tried them out. Loving getting back out.

    Good luck all for body magic!

    Garmain is a make Stacey
    e.g I have a Garmain watch that calculates how far/fast you run/cycle/walk etc, so a GPS & has all sorts of other bits in it that are far too complicated for me! DH has a Garmain for his bike which calculates calories burned/ascends/descends/miles etc etc.
    Good piece of kit but pricey!

    graciebabes will hit target this time

    I have signed up to run a 10K race in April 2013, so I'll be training for that 3 times a week now for 14 weeks! Hopefully if I start recording my exercise I can get my Body Magic awards next year :)

    I'm doing a half marathon in March.... scary stuff :) can't wait though.

    Haven't done body magic today as I have a stinking cold :( hoping it clears up soon, if not I'll def be making sure my body magic is back on track once we're back from our new year trip

    Cherry-Blossom I CAN do this

    I'm (supposed) to be running a half marathon in October next year which is going to be interesting as I don't run at all. I will also have fitness tests for jobs at some point in 2013 as well. So when I get back home then off to the gym it will be! I can't use tread mills as they set off my shin splints so my plan is exercise on the wii when I can't get to the gym along with DVDs (looking at getting the 30 day shred) combined with weights and cardio at the gym. Then hopefully once the weather gets a bit nicer (and I'm no longer on placement) I can get out and start running along the sea front :) That's the plan anyway. Going to need my friend to kick my ass in order to do it though.

    Im taking up swimming in the new year with Daughter - ( yes ive decided to take the plunge) no pun intended lol. Its always been catch 22 I wont swim until i lose weight and to help me lose I need to swim. So hopefully the swimming will help tone me as i lose
  13. Cherry-Blossom

    Cherry-Blossom I CAN do this

    I know the feeling! However there is no way you'd get me in a swimming costume right now though I'd love to do aqua fit and the like once I'm a bit slimmer (and fitter).

    Lol what u like ya dirty mare. I just think it will be the easiest gentlest form of exercise for my joints. I might try a couple of zumba sessions at home see how i manage with my foot and if ok go back to that too

    Theres no chance of me overdoing it as ill be able to tell straightaway if im going to manage lol - it keeps me toned too so hopefully i can do it even if only for 30mins a couple of times a week along with the swimming

    I'm up for this! Been doing SW for a while but just joined group last week. Apologies if its a stupid question or if there's a thread explaining it already (I did search!) but how does body magic work if you are really active already? For example I already do 3/4 gym sessions a week so where would that put me in the scheme of things? Would I have to start from bronze still?

    Hi Hun

    I think you would have to start from Bronze and complete the FIT logs so give to your consultant so you can get the awards :)
    But if you are already active, you'll get them in no time.

    Here is a link to the official body magic section on the Slimming World site...

    Hope this helps.

    Love Stacey xxx
