Even when I’m not huge I hate crunches and sit ups and this looks really good fun http://www.amazon.co.uk/Shaun-Hip-Hop-Fitness-Programme/dp/B001M508N6.
I’ve sent off for it and will let you know how it goes. I’m nowhere near getting to see any abs at the minute but i think it will just be a fun workout.
I started dancing every day with my kids just a twenty minute wobble around to some music. That was my first attempt at an kind of exercise way back in April when I started out on this road. It was a 100 days of healthy challenge which I completed in June. I’ve set myself some targets for activity and exercise along the way, managing to walk and then run to the top of the sea defence wall, which I managed within 4 weeks of setting it. I’m doing a sponsored walk for the local eating disorder service centre which I’ve never used but I know does some fantastic work with young girls who are mainly starving themselves to death due to emotional issues linked to food and body image. It’s only 5 miles and it’s at night, it’s a candle lit pyjama walk so it should be fun, quiet and cool when we do it.
I didn’t feel I could manage much exercise but it wasn’t long before I started to walk longer and longer distances, dance more energetically and as anyone following my blog will know I got to the point where I can actually jog a little bit.
I think I’m ready for something a bit more energetic so this is my choice. I will do as much as I can and build up until I can do it all and then I’ll add in weights and things like that to increase intensity as I become even fitter and lose more weight.
Now I have the all clear on my health I have nothing to worry about. I know I can safely do it and I think it’s time I started to push myself with exercise.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
