Christmas is well and truly behind us now, doesn’t time fly? Now wouldn’t it be great if the holiday kilos came off as fast. Unfortunately the weight never leaves as easily and as quickly as it goes on. Not that I’m complaining about putting on a few kilos, I knew exactly what would happen when I ate all those Christmas goodies. For example, I was well aware that lemon pound cake with cream cheese icing wasn’t the healthiest breakfast option, but it definitely was a yummy one. But no more cake for breakfast (sad face), it’s time to lose some kilos. The first thing that I did was grab some Michelle Bridges DVDs online. Now the Biggest Loser is back on the TV I have found my motivation, if they can lose that much weight in a week, surely I can lose a couple of kilos?
However, let’s be practical about this. I got the Michelle Bridges DVD so I can get trained by someone who knows what they are doing without making me get up early for the boot camps. It’s still too hot to exercise outside, so this way I can work out inside in the lounge room with the air conditioning on. If you think about it I’m also making sure that I don’t get sunburnt as well, another plus – no skin cancer.
Also I don’t have a fancy gym outfit to wear if I go down to the park. Have you noticed that working out has become much more glamorous these days? Going for a walk now is like getting ready for a big night out. You have to make sure that your shoes match your outfit. You need the right accessories, iPhone strapped to your arm and wearing cool headphones. I’m still at the baggy t-shirt, shorts and worn out trainers stage.
But for now it’s just me and Michelle Bridges working out in the air conditioned comfort of the lounge room. So now I have a personal trainer, at a fraction of the cost and I can work out when I want. All with the added benefit of a personal trainer that’s actually on a DVD, she doesn’t judge me for my long term fitness goal. Some people have a goal of running a marathon or a triathlon. Mine is a little simpler and it involves lemon pound cake, next Christmas and breakfast.
