Rowing?

A new found love, ok ok, it’s not as amazing as the image above and it’s not exactly in the water either. It’s on solid ground in the gym. So not as exciting as first thought. 

I needed to incorporate more cardio into my routine. At first I was sticking to bike, treadmill and occasionally the stepper (this machine will bet the death of me). But last week I decided to do the rowing machine; something which I also hated. My first try I did ages ago if I can remember was 1000m in about six minutes and whatever seconds. Maybe even seven minutes. I’d stop and takes rests, be totally out of breath but now this was my first result. 1000m for 5:00.7 so much improvement from the first time. About two months previous. 

A week later I then decided to try again but this time push myself even more and better myself. 1000m for 4:51.5 amazingly better. Yes it’s not amazing to some people and nor is it close to the world record but to me this is my record. This is me showing myself I can improve, I can push myself and my failure is not what I think it is. I can do better and get better results. I’ll keep trying to get better result. Watch this space.

April?

Goals for April. Maybe I’m being very optimistic but I’d like to lose a stone. Right? Who wouldn’t. I think the real question here is; would it be possible? Am I jumping the gun and thinking this is healthy? Is there even a healthy way to lose that much weight? So many unanswered questions. 
You know what I think, let’s just flipping try shall we? April is that step close to summer, a step closer to that bikini body we all dream of yet that’s still about SIX STONE, yes six whole stone away from that. How will I even know if I’ll like my body or even have the body confidence to strut my stuff. 

One of my main reason for losing weight isn’t that bikini body, that would be nice. However I’m just losing weight to have an even bigger belly, yep you got it. A big pregnant belly. 

I have 124 days to get to lose 4-5 stone! Now that’s the real question. Can I do that. You see I can’t have a child naturally and need to go down the IVF route. 

Oh hey!

The introduction post; it’s an unwritten law that we write these, or even a brief explanation of what this is all about. 
New year, new blog oh and new me… blah blah blah. Yeah, we’ve heard it all before, I hear those whispers, this isn’t a new me though. I’ve been on my journey since 1st November 2016, it’s almost been two months and now I’ve decided to blog about my highs and lows, my achievements and failures. I’m going to show you what it is like to be 260lbs and to start a fitness journey, it’s been so hard but totally worth it, I’m currently 248lbs with a loss of 12lbs, not a lot but I am well on my way to becoming so much healthier. 

I’ll be blogging about fitness, health, gym & life

 I’m excited for blogging my journey and recording every step of the way. So let’s say goodbye to 2016
