I never thought I actually do a blog post on some trainers but here I am. Here are my new trainers! I can't remember the last time I had some trainers. Well not including ones I had when I use to do cheerleading, the last pair I had was middle of secondary school. I didn't do sport in the last few years as school due to either a broken nose, broken thumb or injured back. I did want the green or pink of these trainers but because I have such big feet they didn't have any in my size so was left with the blue.
So, I want to get fit in the hope it will help my back get stronger and better. So far I have been doing the 30 day shred for a week. I didn't do it last night but I don't think it is good to do it every day as it is a killer on the muscles and you obviously need to rest. I think I have done pretty well since Day 1 of it. I didn't get these trainers untill the weekend so my poor knees and ankles and throbbing due to the impact on the floor and exercise mat. My mistake. I have also been continuing going for long walks at night after my dinner. So I really want to get into shape and drop a few dress sizes. Don't get me wrong I don't want to get skinny, I want to get fit and I am already feeling the benefits. One thing I need to cut out though it sugary drinks. I haven't snacked on anything bad for a couple of weeks now but I drink Pepsi Max and energy drinks. Not loads but enough. Think that is the next thing to cut out. I am trying to do it in stages. At the moment I haven't changed any of my meals, but I will be. Hopefully going to have lots of chicken and steamed veg which is my favourite. I don't like any other meat.
Tomorrow I am picking up a Cross trainer. Think that is the best way to not put more pressure on my back as I would love to go running but can't.
Another thing I'm trying to do is measuring myself instead of weighing myself. Think it will keep me motivated more when I can see inches coming off me instead of scales going up and down. Doing the 30 Day shred I am aware it won't suddenly make me lose weight. It has a lot of strengh exercises which I need to do to lose weight but it will be adding muscles. Really recommend it to anyone who wants to get fit.
I weighed myself last night and I think (if my scales were right) I have lost 4/5 pounds. So pretty pleased.
