I feel like I have neglected poor Bloggie! I have been rather busy, doing silly stuff. I Started Weight Watchers on Thursday. I was rather horrified by my initial weigh in. I genuinely think I am still in shock. I don't know how or why I let my health get quite so bad. I am back to counting points, weighing food and currently obsessing about such matters. It is not easy sharing it with you or being honest. Euan has taken it upon himself to be my 'Trainer'. I am flattered by his willingness to support me, but he does have rather a 'Boot Camp' style that rubs me up the wrong way! We have been 'Training'/walking everyday for the last four days. He has barked instructions at me along the way such as 'Mom do always want to be fat!', 'Mom walk faster!', 'Mom Run!'. 'Hand rails are for wimps!' 'Mom are you feeling the pain yet, are ya?' Jeesh, he doesn't realise how close he has come to a thick ear, while I have been puffing and panting. Today we went to our local park, with the dog, I have a swish, new pedometer and it tells me I walked just under two miles. . . felt like at least five to me! There is some out door fitness equipment at the park, Euan wanted me to try each one out. I nearly did myself a mischief or three on rowing things, cross trainers, body twisters and such like. I am sure I will feel the pain tomorrow to remind me of what a 'Silly Billy' I have been. I couldn't even manage the suggested exercises for beginners. Never mind. If only Granny Square creating was a sport!
I also have a new swimsuit. Good Lord, you are not spoiled for choice when you are choosing a swimsuit in my size. The song 'Roll out the Barrel' springs to mind and I am not sure when I will be actually brave enough to get the swimsuit wet!
I am still on Easter Break until Monday, routine has gone completely out of the window. I have a Weaving, Spinning and Dyeing Guild meeting tomorrow, where there is a talk about 'Sheep, Fleece and Rare Breeds' sounds like fun to me.
I hope you will all have a good weekend.
