Week 28 (who would have thought!)


Wow! I have been doing this for over half a year now. Who would have thought I would keep it up?

I have decided to change my routine again, for two or three weeks and see if there are any noticeable changes. I went swimming yesterday, and did a total of 1.5km. I timed myself doing then first 1km (35 minutes) and will re-test again next week to see if there is any change in things. I am going to swim 5 times a week, for an hour each time, and see what changes there are. I am also thinking I will find a swimming event on (one that I can wear flippers with haha), and enter into that – for example, the Round the Mount challenge or something similar. Most of the events like that are over for the year, but they come around in October, which gives me a wee while to get properly swim fit. I might also get a couple of lessons to sort my technique out a bit.

When I last lost weight (I went from a size 24 to a 16/18), I was swimming and doing aquarobics 5 days a week, and I enjoyed that – and I didn’t really change any eating habits, so I am going to give it a go now. It’s quite good as I don’t get too hot in the water, but I am still puffing, so I know it’s working! I was reading in a Woman’s Health magazine that swimming is great for you, because it is cardio AND resistance training all at the same time. Each stroke or kick is like a mini resistance workout, so every movement counts, unlike some exercises at the gym.

Still eating well and all that jazz. Alex has made comment in the last few days that my bum is looking a lot smaller than it was, and I have noticed that my knickers are actually quite loose. Excellent.

    Well well, that sounds promising all that swimming but do you remember that when you lost the most weight (when you were working at the cafe and for the few months just before you met Alex) you were hardly eating anything but also being really physical in your work at the cafe. But on the other hand, when you were swimming every day you lost weight like you said so fingers crossed. I hope you are still going to do zumba on Saturdays as that will use different muscles and get the blood pumping and fat burning off!!! Anyway, all sounds good and that Alex has noticed you have a smaller bum and you said about having loose knees, is all good stuff. Talk to you later.

    PS No over=induling tomorrow!!!!!

    Love mum

    Hi Grover…

    Awesome progress and congratulations on your 6 month anniversary.

    Would a nutritionist be worth a visit so you get professional advice? We will pay for a consultation if you want to go. (I haven’t told mum this yet :-)

    Look forward to a slimmer you for your wedding.
    Love you
