I am doing a happy dance. Kathy (blog: Fatty Kathy's Weight Loss Journal) just announced the winner of her Pilates Ring giveaway - and I won!
Thank you so very much, Kathy!!
Of course, this means I have to now commit to exercising - me - the original couch potato!
I've read enough to realize a successful weight loss story always includes some form of exercise, so I've already wrapped my mind around this fact, and I have made up my mind to be enthusiastic about exercise. I'm actually looking forward to receiving the ring and USING it!
I have a lot of weight to lose, and it will be important to start toning, even at this early stage, to minimize the loose-skin that is sure to come. Besides, toned muscles help burn fat, and increase the metabolism - a win-win for anyone on a weight loss journey.
What muscle groups the Pilates Ring won't work, I'll add some exercises that do those groups too.
I've been told we actually have ab muscles, though I don't think I've detected mine in about 20-25 years now. The poor darlings won't know what to think, when I first start out.
I'm into the diet groove, so now the exercising portion needs to be added. This was just the push I needed to get started.
Thanks again, Kathy, for offering a great giveaway - and just the thing I needed (truly)!
Day 10, and right on plan ...
