Gladiator - r u ready ?

26th February

So, this morning I took the 2nd step , I went to the gym saying that I wanted to join, they offered me a 7 day free trial starting on Monday - After that I went to the mall and I bought myself some trainers - I hate those things !!!! I only wear sandals, wish I could gym bare foot , that would have been more comfortable than a closed shoe ! My feet always feels like they suffocating inside any kind of close shoe ! Anyhow, I got the most comfortable ones and will only wear them while I am at the gym.

So, roll on Monday morning !

Decisions, Monday 15th February 2010

Why ? Why am I doing this blog ? I am not really a good writer or expressionist of happenings in my life, but I have made an important decision this past weekend (well important enough to me in any case )

The only person who can change the way I look is me ! I have known this for a while, but up now have had a ton of excuses like.... I am still having another baby, I work full time and travel far to work and back so there is no time and of course.... I don't have any money to spend on a gym contract, funny how I have money to spend on clothes that I never wear because they just don't look good !!!!

Now my dear friends, I have NO more excuses left.

I live in Ghana, my eldest has started creche and my baby has a full time nanny. Time I have alot of, money was never really a problem and I work for my husband, so there is NOTHING else for me to create as an excuse.

I started this blog because there are alot of women in their 30's (I am sure there are lots of men as well ) that struggles with their weight and it consumes us even if we think or convince ourselves that it doesn't and that my partner loves me just the way I am. At the end of the day it is not about THEM, it is about me ! I HAVE to do this and I would like to take a walk with every girl (and guy) out there who would like to join me in my "struggle" to a better me.

This is the first day of the rest of my life !

PS: My decision has not even really sunked in when the cookie jar in the kitchen called my name with agression ! This is going to be though !
