Welcome to the wemitts lizzie: looking forward to sharing your weight loss journey with you once you get started .... but until then, stick with us and keep posting to we can all get to know each other!
Hi to all the other wemitts
I went to the gym today, I haven't been for a couple of weeks as I've had a cold and just felt 'under the weather' ... sometimes we need to listen to what our bodies are telling us and mine just didn't fancy thrashing away on a rowing machine with a runny nose and no free hand to wipe it!
Today was great: for starters I was the only person there so it was like my own private gym! I did 15 minutes walking on the threadmill (6 mph on a 4 deg incline) then I did a couple of weights machines, then 5 minutes on the rower and another couple of weights machines and then 18 minutes on the cross trainer (5 minutes at level 4, 5 minutes at level 10, 5 minutes at level 3 and a cool down)
I was certainly red-faced and had worked up a sweat but amazingly I wasn't puffing or panting at all. I could have easily held a conversation straight after.
Losing this weight has made a major difference to what I can manage at the gym!
Anyway, hope you all had a great day
If you get the chance, could you take a look at the poem I wrote (in the poetry thread) and tell me HONESTLY what you think (without being brutal though ... I'm a beginner at poetry and a delicate little flower!
Seriously, it's one of the poems I've written that I'm considering submitting for my summative assessment at University ( we have to write and submit four) - would love some feedback as it's hard to be objective about your own work.
