Week 15

Hi Everyone!

Weight 60.8kg/134lbs


I didn't exercise as much as I should have this week. I gained a bit of weight too (oopps!). I'm having a little bit of a dip in my energy levels, but I'll pick it up again!

Week 14

Hi Everyone!

Weight 59.3kg


I'm diligently going to yoga. It makes me feel good, but I have noticed some side effects: my face is breaking out (I've never experienced acne before), I'm not losing any weight, I'm getting bored of doing the same poses over & over again, my purse is a lot lighter, I don't feel fitter (I feel more flexible) and my appetite has decreased.

I'm actually a bit relieved that I only signed up for 5 weeks. I don't think I would like to do it for a year. I feel a bit vain, but I do not appreciate the acne & lack of weight loss! I'm going to start running again when I finish with hot yoga and I'll do regular yoga on the side.

Week 13

Hi Everyone!

Weight 59kg/130lbs


Bikram Yoga has been going quite well. I've been feeling really tired, but I still make it to class 6 days a week. At yoga I push myself to do better and stick it out for 90 mins before taking a shower and falling asleep on the couch!

I know that many people make the excuse that they're too tired to exercise. I think people make this excuse because they don't enjoy the particular exercise they have chosen (usually the gym). But they're many different kinds of exercise to choose from, for example, tennis, badminton, hiking, canoeing, rugby etc. My advice is: don't go to the gym because you feel like you have to, find an exercise that you enjoy! This way you'll stick it out and feel energized!

What sports do you enjoy the most? Do you just go to the gym for the sake of it? Do you enjoy your exercise?

Week 12

Hi Everyone! 

Weight 59kg/130lbs


Yoga has been great! It's getting a little easier to handle the heat and I'm starting to get more flexible. I volunteered for speed watch training and an Italian festival. It was great fun! I had to carry some heavy tables and chairs - it wasn't too easy! This is just proof of how much more I need to be in shape! 

Yoga really revitalizes me. It is hard and intense to do, but it's a very different intensity to running. I can't handle running well, so I must start practicing again when I finish yoga in a month. The police obstacle course has to be completed in 2mins 15secs, but I should finish it in well under that time. I should aim for 1min 45 secs. 

For the next month I'm satisfied with yoga, but I will start running again in the summer.
