ruthiebusybee's get-fit diary

So I'm losing weight this time for the last time to get fit (in both senses of the word!) before I'm 30.

I have 14 months to lose 4 stone 7lb and keep it off for a while.

This is my first week, and I weigh in on a Saturday. It would be fair to say that I haven't exactly 'stuck to it' but I have added exercise into my regime, which is new, so I'm hoping that might redeem me a bit.

I am running, yes running, the Race for LIfe 5k on 30 July, so I am training for that now. I have walked it plenty of times but I felt the need for a solid challenge to keep me on track, so I've told everyone at work I'm doing it and getting some really good levels of sponsorship in, so I have a lot of expectations to live up to.

Am settling into it a bit now though, so I'm hoping to be a complete 'Loser'.:D

Good luck - my own fitness is shocking and although I'd love to challenge myself to a 5k etc I just don't know how long it will take me to get any sort of fitness back!! I intend on getting back into Couch 2 5k but at the moment it's still dark by the time I get home from work, and I'm not really a morning person!!! xx
I think that's the one I'm following, is that 6 or 8 weeks? I downloaded 2, and went for the 8 week one!

Luckily, in a moment of incredible madness I bought a treadmill 4 years ago, and have only just really started using it. Not sure the neighbours appreciate it, but hey ho!

Good luck, it's always worth it in the end, but getting started is sooooo hard!
