Excuse my enormous hips, but I promise, mainly myself, that they will reduce in size. I’ve looked at all sort of ways to exercise more, I tried the gym at school but usually I was the only one there, which I found a bit lonely. I’ll use it every now and then, but I needed a more regular form of exercise. I’m walking every night for a brisk and puffing all the way thirty minutes…..Dearly Beloved and I both have achey knees from this but we’re becoming more resilient. I quite like working out at home, usually when I get in from work and before Dearly Beloved gets in. My gym kit is very cool and frugal. The ‘Elle’ work out top was from the charity chop and off their 50p rail, the Long Tall Sally track suit bottoms are from their clearance sale for £5…..
……the biggest bargain I ever got from a charity shop was my new, still in the box Reebok Playdry trainers, I’ve had them a while and I often wear them just for walking or riding my bike and I paid £3 for them.
I’ve been looking for a piece of home gym equipment and snaffled this from Freecycle and picked it up this week. I like the ‘power cords’ attached to it, they have made my arms ache as I’m just not used to anything intense. The funny old bird on the DVD is about as irritating as a dose of thrush but I’ll do what she does as it’s easy to follow. Oh and the weight loss, another 3lbs this week, so another 1lb to go and I will have lost a stone; just another two to go and hopefully I will fit into the clothes I already own!!! That’ll save me even more money.
