Saturday Chit Chat

Well I haven't done one of these for a while. As ever, I have been meaning to write all week - but like the week and January it has flown by.  We seem to be hurtling into 2016 - it only seem a few weeks ago my eldest started secondary and yet he's completed 5 months of Year 7 already.

So how are the jeans fitting everyone? Mine are still on the tight need a shoe horn side. Although I have nearly lost all my Xmas gain - a whopping 7lb.  I've also nearly completed the 8 week PIYO dvd which I have spoken about in previous posts.  I will most certainly do it again as I've liked making the time to do it and have seen an improvement in my flexibility and general well being. My favourite session is "sweat" - its a combination of lots challenging moves but in particular - planks, push ups, lunges and warrior poses. 

To cover up my Xmas excess I treated myself (any excuse) to a gorgeous cape from Cocoon Luxury Wear. I didn't get it for free like some other bloggers - namely fashion bloggers - who got their hands on a free one but little old me got one in the sale. Sadly, its a tad too cold to wear it at the moment but it shall be making an outing once it gets a bit warmer.  

So continuing on with getting fitter and healthier in 2016 - I have decided to try out Glow Fit.  Its basically an exercise class with a weigh in. I really like the sound of it and have sent my local group and email to ask a few questions. As I understand it, you pay £24 a month, no joining fee and can attend as many fitness classes as you like. So there is a kettlebell class, aerobics and High Intensity workout which I can fit in during the week. But the best part of all, asides from the exercise, you can get weighed to keep track of your progress. There is no food plan to follow - only the normal sensible suggestions.  I think it could be right up my street.  I did even contemplate joining Slimming World but I know you just pay the money and leave - who stays for the meetings? Also a friend goes who said the consultant is overweight.  I remember that same consultant from many years ago who was overweight then.  I really think that says it all don't you?  It clearly doesn't work in the long term.

Anyhow, that's my brief update and will be back soon to let you know how I get on!
