New me, Week 9/10

It’s just a quick posting today. On Friday last week, Rach wasn’t very well, so I went swimming on Saturday instead, and as it was quiet I kept swimming after I had done half a mile, and managed to swim ¾ of a mile. I was very chuffed with myself. As I said in the last posting, I hadn’t been exercising as much as I thought I should be, and the past couple of weeks I’ve rectified that. I’m now doing an exercise DVD 3 times a week.

As I’ve said before it takes 6 weeks for something to become a habit, and I think exercise is definitely a habit now. It takes 6 months however for it to become part of your lifestyle, and I need to keep going for another 3 ½ months before I get to that stage. It does seem more likely now that I will stick with this healthy lifestyle.

As Rach is now without a car, I’m not meeting her for swimming today, so I’m swimming in Wadebridge instead. The only problem with Wadebridge is there is no weighing machine, so I’m unable to know if I’ve managed to get past 10 stone 1. Hopefully next week I will be able to check on my weight.

I’ve also just finished a great book, and have consciously decided not to start another novel until I have finished my ‘Free yourself from smoking’ book. So I’ve now read another couple of chapters, and will be setting a date soon. I can’t keep putting it off, and I know I need the psychological support the book can give me.

Although I don’t know if I’ve lost any weight, I’m still on track and its been another successful couple of weeks.
