Lose weight, get fit to prepare for the future!

It's funny when something I plan to do gets a reinforcing message such as the one posted on Molly's blog today. I am even more convinced that I need to lose weight and get fit to prepare for what is facing the World in the not so distant future.

A future with famines, eco refugees and widespread poverty are horrifically frightening to me. I need to be fit and healthy to give my family the best chance for the future.

Can't imagine trying to climb fences to scrump apples in my present condition ;)

Good luck Crone! Plan a bit, be kind to yourself :)

I need to lose a good few kgs too, but more I need to stretch my body and keep it fitter to stay healthy (hopefully shed some wgt at the same time)... we've begun walking to school; an 8km round trip so we'll try a few times a week now that the days are longer. It's such a toss up isn't it, how to fit everything into a life... only so many hours in a day and choices - this good thing or that good thing, can't have both. I'm thinking that if it goes ok we might try a group walk and drop off other friends' kids on the way home.

Lately I've found inspiration through the "31 Days to a Better Diet" series on http://www.kathrynelliott.com.au/blog/ - lots of ideas to help revise your eating habits. And heaps of delish recipe links ;)

Cutting out my one glass of cordial with dinner each night and one coffee from the day (I always have 2 sugar in my coffee) has seen me lose 10 kgs. Of course I can lose more comfortably so thats my plan too over the next year, I'm with you L.

Blessings:)

Ha, LOL... my DH only drinks Ginger Cordiol anyways, but often goes on a "No cordiol" diet when he says his 'love handles' are getting too big!

Anyways, being fit and ready to face the worst is a good idea... having some fat reserves might not be a bad thing either!
