Eight weeks down - 44 to go...

Well, it'll be the first of March tomorrow. The first of Autumn, according to the calendar, though we Pagans still have another three weeks of Summer (Yay!!!)...

Today, then, marks the end of my second month of doing things every day to increase my health and general well being. I think I've come a long way in the past 8 weeks! I've lost 7.5kg, well over a stone. Dave and I have completely revised out dinner menu! I've gotten into Crystal Healing and Angel Healing...

I still haven't implemented a regular exercise routine and I know I need to do this to continue to reap the benefits of this change of lifestyle.

So, in the great tradition of "copying as the sincerest form of flattery", I'm going to take up Leah's "1000 minutes of exercise" challenge for March. I've set up a graph through http://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/createagraph/index.asp to track my progress (by keeping a record of the percentage of that 1000 minutes I've done)... Unfortunately, this program doesn't work like a ticker, so I have to manually redo it every time I update it, but it's a start and if I find anything better I'll just swap over...

I've also made a graph of my weightloss to date, because I do like to see it all laid out, makes me feel good.

Once Dave is home for good (could be as early as this week the way things are going at work, eek!)... I'll start going for daily walks. At the moment though, my goal is to carry Bryn as much as I can handle, and trying a get out of the house every other day at least for a walk around of some sort...
