I clean forgot to post yesterday. But, huzzah! A loss of 1.1 kg this week puts me back at my pre-wedding lowest weight of 88.7 kg. I can’t be arsed with the stats – it’s the exact same figures as the Week Six Weigh-In if you feel like some number crunching 🙂
Hanna was asking in the last entry how come I moved so far out if I don’t like living out of town so much, and why didn’t we decide to get a place closer to the city as a compromise when we got married? And a fair question it was, considering how much I’d been complaining about it! It all came down to finances. The only reason I could afford to live in the inner city was because I was sharing a house with six other people. A two-person love nest was beyond out means – at least £500 per month for the same area, and that’s often for just one bedroom and a boxroom, and also excluding expenses and council tax! OUCH! It seemed an awful lot money to pay in dead rent. So for now we’re staying at Chez SC where things are far, far cheaper. This way we can hopefully start saving some money. Woohoo!
I’m feeling a lot calmer about my new surroundings and carving out a routine. The internet shopping is working like a charm, and we’ve been cooking really healthy nosh. One advantage of the new digs is that I now take the train to work. This involves a total of one hour’s walking to and from the station each day. So that’s five hours extra Moving Of My Lardy Arse per week without having to try! Kick ass.
So what can you guys tell me about workout DVDs? I wouldn’t mind having a few around for rainy days. Or bad hair days. I’m particularly interested in strength training, yoga, pilates-ish sorta stuff. And I want it to be challenging. I’ve seen people say good things FitPrime and Kick Butt ones from the Women’s Health & Fitness Network, which doesn’t ship outside North America, as well as The Firm and a few others. There doesn’t seem to be any in the UK that weren’t put out by some Z-list celebrity!
I had so much I wanted to write about but I better scoot so I don’t miss my train! Hope you’re all doing goooooood!
