It’s been a month since I posted about my Quake Weight and the challenges I (and many other Cantabrians) faced with putting on weight post-earthquake. (If you haven’t read the post “OK, the Quake Weight has gotta go” – read it first.
It’s been great seeing the post re-tweeted, shared on FB and linked to. It’s had over 1,000 views. It means that some people have read it, and hopefully some people have taken action. What’s also been good is the number of people who have asked me how I’m going. One of the reasons I wanted to go public was to make myself accountable – if other people know what I’ve committed to doing, it’s much harder to hide it.
Now, I haven’t been perfect in following what I said I’d do. But I’m not beating myself up about it either. But my new gym programme has certainly kicked my ass – quite literally.
I measured my waist today – and I’ve dropped 2cm already. And I think the change is evident in these pics – less muffin top than a month ago. So, if you’re still making up excuses for not taking action to improve your fitness/weight/general health – then stop. And just do something!
