Eaten fine, just got back from a 30 min walk with 2 of my kids. It's bitterly cold out there. I haven't done much interval training in home today as i have been looking after another child and it is bad enough looking like a fool in front of my own kids, let alone someone elses.
Tomorrow i am going to have a salad for dinner as we are going to an all you can eat place for lunch. It's for my sons b'day.
Day 2 of the hols and the kids bedrooms look like the local tip. Clothes are strewn everywhere - costume changes for....tada, sing star comps. They are on a break right now as i have complained that my ears are bleeding.
BRB....time to play referee.
Back now. Hubby has made me a steamfresh microwave meal. Tuesdays are normally catch and kill night and i found these light microwave meals at Westernfresh meats in Karingal. 2 for $4. They have many great deals. Might go there again this weekend. Cheap, cheap meats and veg too.
See you tomorrow blog.
Tip 30 - move more
Don't be embarrassed to exercise
Do you hate the thought of exercising in public? Embarassment is recognised as one of the main reasons people avaoid physical activity. It can stem from a fear of looking silly, or negative experiences from the past that foster a negative attitude towards exercise. Some of this fear of embarassment is associated with gyms, where pepole feel uncomfortable in that enviroment or intimidated by being around people who are in good shape. Other reasons may be that people feel too old or unskilled to operate equipment, lack co-ordination for classes and some fear they'll destroy equipment. This becomes a vicious cycle, where the people who need to exercise more are the ones feeling uncomfortable doing it. But you dont have to join a gym. You do however, have to be active if you are serious about losing body fat.
It is important to feel relaxed and comfortable when you exercise. If you feel embarrassed in public, look at ways you can exercise at home. Get some fitness equiptment or an instructional dvd, or even try walking at night. As your fitness improves and you lose weight, your confidence will grow and any embarrassment will be less of an issue.
