In more positive news,I lost 2 lb's which brings a loss of 6 lb's in 2 weeks! I've finally broken the stone barrier which has eluded me the last year.

I've also been to the gym 4 days out of 5 (!!!!!) and worked really fact I nearly ran for a few seconds on the treadmill.Thought better of it though,as for 1) I would've ended up with 2 black eyes,and 2)I don't think my poor joints are ready for my jelly at speed higher than a power walk.

I'm thinking about booking in for a personal training session every 2 months or so.At £28 they're quite pricey,but I feel I'm kinda clueless.Generally I do 1 hour or more of cardio,then about 15 mins of weights,then sometimes a quick swim.I don't know if I'm doing the right weights though and how many I should be doing etc.Plus I need some sort of lower back strengthening program as my back is still a little tender,2 days after a shift at a house where there's some pretty intense (and most probably illegal!) manual handling.Plus it will help me see how I'm progressing.

I've got a few uber easy,uber quick recipes to share,but I will have to post them another time as I am completely shattered after such intense physical exertion and an intense shift at work.Till next time!

Herzlichen Gl├╝ckwunsch to your weightloss.

If you can afford a PT, go for it. I can´t really, but I still do it :-)

Vielen dank,Petra,ja £28.50 ist zehr teuer,aber ich denke das ist wertvoll.

Sorry,did that make sense?I really must practise meine satze geabaude.....My sentence structure and grammar.

I think I can ty and squeeze a budget in for a personal training session once every 2 months,just to get some instruction for an exercise/weight program and see how I'm progressing and that I'm on the right track.x

Eurgh!That IS expensive! Don't they offer something in your gym where they can do you a free 'programme'?I got one done a few months ago- very helpful. Didn't stick to my plan in any way because I'm badass like that (:P) but was definitely good.
Ps: I understood your German!

Keeping good shape is impossible without appropriate meals and well planned trainings. When I was working on my weight loss I found a lot of interesting info on Training programms, diets, and other tips for athletes as well as for people who visit gym occasionally (just like me). I've read about dietary supplements, which helped me get enough nutrition without overeating and keep my body energized. Now losing weight is much easier for me.
