It's actually inpired me sompewhat. I've been married for seven months and on Lithium for six months and in that time I've put on a LOT of weight. Whether this gain is caused by the Lithium or just plain gluttony, I don't particularly care, I just want to shift a fair bit of it in a healthy way.
Now, here's the kicker. I HATE exercising!! I used to play badminton at least once a week for about two hours at a time but I've got lazy in my old age and now I actually get puffed walking up the stairs at work. I do go cycling once a week (or once a fortnight) and do on average 12-16 miles but in the grand scheme of things that's not really a lot. A and I had a plan of cycling from Lands End to John O'Groats but I chickened out pretty much immediately. I do however want to do *something*. Anyway, most of these bloggers that I read go running. My view was always "I don't run unless I'm being chased" but maybe these girls are onto something. Maybe running could be "my thing". I do need some trainers though, I haven't had a decent pair in years so that might cost quite a bit but I guess it would be worth it if I can make myself actually run (and to be honest, if I've bought them I'm more likely to do it).
And breakfast, I am going to HAVE to start eating breakfast. Normally I'm in so much of a rush in the morning that I run out of the house without eating anything an then just have a Nakd bar at about 10am but if I get into the habit it's got to be better for me. Heh, this could be the start of a new me :)
