    Oohh.. i think i might have to do this!



    I've only had a baby 8 weeks ago, and still having some issues with bleeding post birth, but i'll give it a go and see how i go and if i can finish it

    I would really like to lose around 15 kg, but would be stoked with 10. Minimum i need is 7kg, which gets me pre-pregnancy (#1). I tried for a month last December and lost 4 kg, and then got pregnant so had to stop.

    We have a cross trainer, i love getting on it with my music for 20 mins - it's better than listening to screaming kiddies - i never thought i would actually want to do exercise, but i find it such a good time out in the evening!

    Funnily enough, last time i used the cross trainer was the night before DD was born - i was trying to induce labour

    OMG....if I did that I'd have you all running for your lives!

    Just off to the shops to stock up on veggies/diet yogurt and Chuppa Chups! Shaz & Yael.....you have both inspired me with your excercise talk. I am going to WALK to the shops with the dog instead of driving.....10 mins there, and a VERY STEEP panting 20 mins back!

    You girls have brightened my day. I've had a relieved giggle just now.
    For those of you who don't know, I'm in the cops, and I spend a good part of my day working with fit athletic women. It's even worse when you catch yourself in a shop window whilst wearing the gunbelt that did fit properly - once.
    Sad part is on my warrant card (ID) it says I weigh 54kgs. I refuse to change to my married name because it means I'll need a new card and therefore a new 9and probably way more accurate) weight - sad huh?
    I have taken my measurements but no luck at the morgue today. I had to measure by myself - all easy until you get to the arm bit lol.

    I just found a tape measure and measured myself. I put the tape under my chin on my arm to hold it Kim! I have no idea what nice measurements are so it didn't seem too horrific, one of my thighs is 5cm thinner than the other though!

    we have a gym at work to use for free at lunchtime, that I've been seriosuly slack at using, so from now it will be:
    mondays 30 min spin class
    tuesdays 1hr 'shaping' havnt been to this one yet, i think its toning exercises
    wednesdays gym/circuit or 30min walk, plus gym workout at night approx 45min
    thursdays 30min core stability class
    fridays walking 30 min
    saturdays - gym 45mins weights/cardio

    Well I just put my measurements in to Nat, and can I just say I was really suprised. I am huge...

    So. I am off to buy a day to a page diary to write down what food / water / exercise I am doing to keep track a bit.

    With having PCOS this is going to be a huge challenge, but with about 25 kgs to lose, I really want to to do this.

    My plan for exercise, with working full time and not having access to the gym will be.

    Mon - 20 minute bike.
    Tues - pilates video
    Wed - 30 minute bike.
    Thurs - pliates video or aqua aerobics.
    Fri - day off - sewing / craft night.
    Sat - swimming lessons with Katy.

    As far as food is concerned, I am back on my Sureslim diet which I did a few years ago, however adding a few low GI carbs.

    Good luck everyone!!!!

    i have just bought headphones from my mp3 player and a measuring tape, a bit scared. now all i have to do is work out when/how i can exercise and hopefully plan it so i can do it solo, not with bubs.

    anyone know of any other exercise shows on foxtel?? i didnt realise there is yoga, might have to give it a go. not sure how i will go with dd in the playpen while i try it out, haha.
