So since May of thislast year, I have lost 7kgs (15lbs).
I did it the old-fashioned way, with diet and exercise. Bread, potatoes, pasta.. all of these became my nemeses. I ate slightly smaller meals, never after 9pm, and started a routine of pilates, jogging and strength-training at home in the form of lunges, squats, sit-ups and the like.
And then I got Wii Fit.
Now let’s just say, I bought it for a kick, and because I love Yoga. Add to that the fact that I have this weird obsession with charting progress in anything (see: spreadsheets galore). And so far? I love it.
Boxing, step classes, balance exercises, yoga, boxing, strength exercises that you can’t cheat in (not unless you wanna ruin your score!) and boxing. Did I mention boxing? man that’s fun.
I also started a running plan yesterday to bring my cardiovascular fitness up, as that is sorely lacking. Hopefully by the time I move I’ll be a little smaller, tauter and fitter.
