Getting Serious & An Interview WIth Moi!

There's no way I'm gonna start this post without first saying a big Thank You to Tim of Fat.Boy.Thin  for asking me to do an interview. I enjoyed sharing my thoughts and experiences with others. For those of you who don't know Tim, you can check out his blog.

So, I woke up this morning and felt like embarking on a more serious regimen to shock my body into losing weight. The problem: I can't seem to think of suitable exercises. Any ideas? Yesterday I was reading blogs and I kept seeing the c25k program so I checked it out. I'm just worried about the running part but I see it's a gradual process so maybe I will give it a try.

I haven't posted any weigh-ins cus it seems I've hit a plateau but, it's gonna be broken asap. Oh yeah... I've got to get into those size 14 jeans by August. :-)

Why I Exercise At Home...

I have never been a fan of the gym. Never. The thought of being stared at by slimmer people kinda freaked me out. And when I decided to finally go to a gym, the instructor had me doing 2000 jumps on my first day. The result... a visit to the cardiologist.

Then, I decided to go for brisk walks in the evenings. I wasn't spared by the area guys... The catcalls and being called names such as obolo, heavy duty, fatty were my portion. Gosh! I couldn't even drown their shouts with my earphones. I was miserable till I discovered that I could do exercises at home and lose weight. Yes, I didn't have to worry about being laughed at.  I could do my situps, crunches, lateral raises etc. I could mess up, start all over and not feel bad about myself.

Last night I did 5 minutes on the treadmill + 1000 jumps of the jumprope and felt so good afterwards... Besides, it will be fun to see the look of surprise on the faces when they see me move from a size 16 to a 10. :-)

It's My Birthday!

Happy birthday to me! It's funny how time flies. I started this weight loss journey two months after my birthday in 2009. Ok, so I wasn't able to lose any weight in the last month but I didn't gain any either.  I am proud of myself though because I've lost 16kg (35 pounds) so far and that is something to me.

Anyways, I'm back to my rigorous routine. Watch me do my thang and become the next JHud. :-)
