Over weight. Oh soooo over weight. Being only 5'1" I am sure if I fell over I would roll.
Depressed because of all these things too.
I think, at times, we all arrive at this "Day of enlightenment". Mine came last Wednesday after yet another restless night when finally crawling out of bed and realising it was make or break day I took myself off to enroll with a Gym. It had to be one with a pool as I would rather be in the water than on the rowing machine etc.,.
I am now a paid up member and have been every day - yes, every day. Walking up and down that stretch of water as if my life depended on it. Less impact on the joints apparently and no, no one quite shouted "Save the Whale" as I stepped in. lol.. Another week of this and I can gravitate towards the treadmill and the bike.
I could not believe how much I had deteriorated, age of course don't help but its no excuse. Muscles? What muscles? just flab.
I have 6 weeks to get into some kind of shape before my holiday which is a cruise with the whole family who will be spending all their time in various water activities in which I would be unable participate. I would hate that.
Let this be a lesson to all you avid crafters. Sitting on your backside sewing and knitting and anything else you do requiring a sedentary position aint good for you. Well, thats my excuse.
Talking about sedentary and avid, I took this pic this morning at breakfast time. All the males in the family were sitting avidly watching Smurfs and wrapped in some of Grandma's quilts.
Now do pop over to Wendys Handmade Monday on Handmade Harbour.there is always some lovely things there.
