The burn


After a four mile walk on Sunday followed by Davina's new DVD and some of Ministry of Sound's Dance Workout I could barely walk or sit today of yesterday. So why did I then think it a good idea to go to Boxercise after work?

Lord only knows. The pain is bad, so bad.

What I do know is that my winter of hibernation has not only left me with an expanded waist line, but with the physical fitness levels of a 50 year old. I huffed and puffed my way through Eugine's grueling regime this evening. At one point I thought the skin on my face might melt off. My legs were shaking and my lunges were pathetic to say the least.

But you know what they say: no pain, no gain.

And even though I currently have too much insulation on my stomach to feel my abs, the pain tells me that deep below the wobble they are firming up.

One problem - coming home and eating two left over slices of pizza from last night while I waited for my salmon to grill may have undone tonight's hard work. 7am pilates anyone?

Don't forget the bum exercises, Tabby. When you've a firm bum, the rest of the body follows.

haha re the pizza. I used to do that - play an hour of squash and then dash off to the pub and down two pints and grab some chips on the way home.

Gorilla - i always thought it was the stomach!

I did pilates last night, and it's the best for making you feel thinner straight away, as it makes you unconsciously suck your tummy in for the next 24 hours!
