This is a first week progress report on my strangely lush fitness plan. I'm feeling very motivated right now, so I'm making the most of my enthusiasm by taking up all my exercise opportunities.
My best opportunity for running is to go out in my lunch hour when I'm working in the office at a leafy green business park. There's a shower at the office so I don't have to feel grotty and sweaty for the rest of the afternoon. Not that I'd go running at all if there wasn't a shower in the first place.
I choose go faster stripes on my joggers for obvious reason. My green trainers cheer me up and make me go GO GO.
Because I'm a good girl I did some warm up stretches and headed off for a ten minute run round the block. I followed that up with two sets of 10 sit ups and the same again of leg raises. I was going to call it a day, but saw a fellow mum from the office taking a moment to sit nearby in the sun.
She's facing exactly the same get moving or look pregnant issue. She's also been going out for lunch time runs. I found her quite inspiring, so I did my 10 minute run all over again back to the office.
Then I looked like this.
Sweaty, but elated. I got considerably pinker over the next 10 minutes, but I'm alright now.
I wonder how the rest of you are getting on with putting the plan into action. Is anyone taking bets on whether Amanda ate her dinner quickly and went back for seconds? Jakelliesmom is planning to take the stairs to her office. Mine is on the third floor. Gulp. Will I, won't I, take the lift? And will Reluctant make it to her swishy, childcare-included gym?
