@ GeeGee - I say you must be under a fair amount of pressure as your running the show - can't even imagine! Hopefully you'l be again to find time during your schedule to fit in a bit of me time, let alone exercise time.
@ thatone - great idea. I may join you. Atm using my fitness pal app, and according as I'm losing the weight, I input the figure into the app and it graphs my progress . . .down 4lb so far! woo
@Sparkle101 - Fair play to you re the healthy eating. That's the one aspect I'm falling wayside on atm. I not necessarily eating crap, just a lot of carbohydrates - rice/pasta/bread/white rolls, etc. But weightloss is 30% exercise and 70% eating plan. Have cut out chips though, so thats good..
So I'm off to the gym today, the first time in a week as have been studying non stop! Can't wait, as Have been mad busy with work and study, so looking forward . . . this equates to my "me" time as well . . . as i zone out, while listening to my music . . . no phone/interruptions/study/work= bliss
Motivation wise - if anyone is looking for inspiration, I recommend a gander of this post by Sinead at Viva Adonis http://www.vivaadonis.com/2012/01/viva-health-motivation-101.html
Very well written and really good pointers. Personally, I like to buy cute workout clothes - Of late I have been purchasing NEON BRIGHT tshirts and wear with cropped or long nike sweats. Cheap active wear in TK maxx atm if anyone is looking?
