My diet/fitness guru is Donna Aston. I own several of her books and whilst I am not following her diet/excersise reccomendations as rigidly as i would like, her whole outlook of health and fitness really makes sense to me and is reall accissible. I reccommend Donna Aston to all of you wholeheartedly!
After many years of reading about excersise i think i have finally found it in myself to dedicate time towards weight loss. Eating a healthy diet will take some work and I am planning to see a nutritionist within the next month. I plan on walking every day for an hour, doing a small amount of weight baring work at home (using my own body weight not actual weights), attending aqua aerobis 1-2 times per week and joining a weekly group workout class.
My ideal weight (for bmi purposes) is 55 kilos, though i wont be working towards meeting that number, rather i will be working towards losing fat from my stomach, hips and thighs, toning my muscles, increasing the vitality of my skin and hair and regulating my mentrual/ovulation cycle. I am hoping within 2 months i will go from a size 14/ Large, to a size 12/Medium. I am hoping within 4 months i will have the kind of body i wont be too scared to bare at the beach and I am hoping within 6 months my fertility will be boosted and my husband and I can start trying for a baby!
I am really hoping that within the WEEK my moods will stop swinging all over the place and I will not be so disheartened when my stomch refuses to be held in place by my jeans.
The other day i tried on a new swimsuit for aqua aerobics and I was thrown into a depression as a realised my pasty, dimples, wobbly body makes me unhappier than i'd previously thought. Funny how easily you can forget about your own body , isnt it.
