    Default Life changes :-)

    So I have embarked on a new path to improve my fitness and health. I have changed the way I eat and managed to lose 28lbs in three months. Mostly just by eating healthily and cutting out junk. I have not exercised in a very long time (although I do have a job where I am on my feet all day this cannot really be considered exercising) so today I joined the local gym and hit the pool. I am aching so bad right now but I feel amazing and Friday I have an appointment in the gym with a personal trainer. I am more than a little nervous about this but seriously after five extensive knee surgeries and two broken wrists I am tired of making excuses and I am going to give it a go. I am determined to get fitter and that these changes in my life will be permanent.

    No more excuses for me about my health and weight. I'm on the right track and I intend to stay there :-)

    Hayley xx

    Pulling for you - wishing I had your wherewithal and determination right now.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.
