Allergic to exercise???

I have never been one to exercise, except coming up to my wedding I went to the gym everyday so that I would be good for my wedding day (which I was, I still smile when I remember the zip on my dress going up so easily :) )

I did go through a phase of going to the gym for about a year. I still have the membership. It is costing me too much! So I have promised myself that I will get back into it. I also seriously want to lose some weight for my health.

Just as I was thinking about this flylady started posting about Jonathan (NEWO) running the Boston Marathon and his challenges running up to this. So I am taking part.

So far, I have walked further to the car a few times (and parked further away at work), scheduled when I am going to go to the gym in the next 30 days (I am not going to put myself under too much pressure but build a habit - so next week only once as my schedule permits), and bought a new water bottle so that I keep hydrated.

On top of this I am going to give up cake for lent... Hopefully a healthier me by Easter :)


  1. Liz: You can do it! Take baby steps, and look at exercise as a way to make your life healthier, instead of something you have to do. It gives you the energy to do things you love.

  2. Great news, Liz! Just keep listening to the podcasts of Jonathan's show - people phone in with loads of little tips on how to get extra exercise in. Just like the Flylady system, the babysteps add up. You don't *need* a gym membership or equipment (though that's great if you have them). Just get out of your chair and do something! :) Can't wait to hear how you get on... xo
