Lazy Girl - a new adventure.

Yum

Well, you all know I have been following the Weight Watchers plan for about 21 weeks now. With around a stone and a half lost I am finally getting around to upping my activity levels. I am inherently lazy so gaining motivation and momentum is a rare thing indeed. So I have decided to incorporate some of this new found fitness into this blog.

With the warmer weather and lighter nights I seem to have come out of my winter hibernation with an unnatural (for me) desire to exercise! Needless to say I am taking advantage of this rare moment of energy.

I know this is a bit of a departure from the usual food-related fare, but I hope you don't mind. I mean this blog is a bit of an extension of me, so if I am running/zumba-ing/bootcamping etc... Expect to hear all about it.

Don't panic though, I shall still be cooking and baking up a storm.

So, where does the Lazy Girl element come into it? Well, I have spend an exorbitant amount of time googling various fitness classes, gyms, crazes etc... And there is so much out there but a lot of it seems to be targeted at people who know what they are doing or who already exercise a lot.

What I really want is someone like me to try these things, then tell me honestly how horrible/tiring/impossible it all is, or hopefully the opposite. So, rather than wait for this magical person to do this I decided to simply try things myself and review them from my unique slightly lazy perspective.

So these posts will all be entitled - Lazy Girl's review.

If you have any recommendations, tips, tricks, warnings please feel free to share. Wish me luck!

  2. Go Nelly :-) I would definitely suggest suggest running as you can do it any time, anywhere. Find a good beginners 5k plan with lots of walk/run in it (runnersworld.co.uk is a great resource) and give it a go.

    Used to weigh 16.5 stones in my twenties and never thought that at *ahem* thirtysomething I would be in the best shape of my life and run nearly 70 miles in a month as I am inherently lazy too. But the freedom and fresh air become addictive; it's quite cheap and you can do it alone or with friends. Good luck xx

    1. Thanks! That is really inspiring.

      I really just want to feel healthy, and hopefully find something I enjoy doing! I love blogging and baking and food, but food blogging is not good for the waistline. Lol

    Hey Nelly - all the way from India!! Well done on this. As another who has become static due to circumstances here ANY movement is good movement! For sustained and long-term benefit, walking is the thing. That's why there are so many equipments designed around it - but of course outside is much the best. AS Rebecca said, the fresh is a bonus.

    Now your Aunty Hilary is getting into the geocache thing and that will involve walking plus a prize at the end. It can take you to all sorts of wonderful places too. Why not ask her about it? You can tell her I sent you. ... I live far enough away to be safe!!! Love your recipes. Glad I can't cook 'em here &*> Hugs, YAM-aunty
