I've never really had any fitness goals before, but I have reached a point where I know I need to lose weight and get fit. It's no longer a choice - it's a ~must~. So, my goals for this year are: Lose 5 stone Be able to run 5k. Losing weight isn't easy for me, and as I can barely run 5 steps, let alone 5k right now, it's quite an ask. I have signed up for a basic buggy bootcamp class for mummies with kids. I also need to start seeing where I can slot exercise in - even if it is only a 15 minute while at work. I need to make the time for it. Getting out will do my mental health a lot of good, as well as my physical health. We have bought my youngest son a scooter, so hopefully he will get the hang of that soon so going for a walk with the two of them will be faster that it currently is and help get me fitter too. I am hoping to get a Fitbit to help motivate me, and also to let me know exactly how much (or how little!) I really do. As I use My Fitness Pal, I really like that it will sync direct to it so all my data will be in one easy to use place. I learned about the Fitbit from the Get Fit Feel Epic competition on Money Supermarket.com, and also on the very lovely 2Starsandaswirl's Blog competition. Hopefully, in 12 months time there will be a whole new me. A much smaller, much happier, much fitter me.
