Can I count occasional dusting as exercise?
|Which one is me? Yep, none of them.|
Last year I did very well with my exercise. I danced pretty much every night to either Zumba or Just Dance on the Wii and do you know what? It made a difference. I lost a stone in weight (yep, I really needed too) but the little...ok, larger...tummy bump (no I'm not pregnant) has appeared again. It's a kind of muffin-top but all at the front. I'm sure it's on my butt too but fortunately I can't turn my head all the way around to see that!
I also have those dreaded bingo wings and I don't even play the damn game!
I used to count exercise as a day out geocaching as I walked miles on a quarter of a cheese sandwich and a few grapes or a good hoover of the house (bit too infrequent in my case as I hate housework) but it's actually been too hot to do too much of that of late and, as you may recall, we've been potty training too. Oh hell, who am I kidding? N could happy wee behind a tree if we were out. I'm sorry, I have to admit it, I've become lazy.
So, I need to do some exercise. I'm tired though so how to I motivate myself? With the girls rarely being asleep before 8.30pm, I find it hard at that time of night to think "great, let's get moving!" and more "phew, time to catch up on one TV show before I go to bed myself at 9.30". Arrghhhh....
I think I'm going to have to rope J into helping me out. I know once I start, I'll immediately have more energy, feel better and, of course, lose a few inches.
I'm off to have a (low fat of course) yoghurt while I think about what exercise I need to do. Watch this space.
