Fitness Friday - The Meme


Welcome, everyone! It's the very first Fitness Friday today - you can all linky up your posts here on the Monkeying Around Blog. Seeing as it's our first one, I thought we should have a little introduction and we can all link up our plans, regimes, diets and aspirations. This Fitness Friday Meme will be the first post for anyone who wants to join up - just fill it in, post it to your blog and link up to the Monkeying Around Page.

I have tagged some people below to join in, but if you fancy it - just copy and paste, you're very welcome to and anyone can join!

Why I want to lose weight:
I want to be healthy. I want to stop finding myself binging on a huge bag of Cadbury's Giant Chocolate Buttons or a 50% extra free packet of Jammie Dodgers. I want to be able to run, far, for charity and for myself and I want to see the flabber that's found its way to my chin, back, arms, bum, thighs and stomach fly away. I want the fat gremlins to come and take it and plop it onto that girl I hated at school. OK, maybe the last bit is a bit too far.
I also want to feel good, to look sexy in what I wear and I want to be wanted. I know I am, but I want to feel it too.

My Fitness Plan:
I have bought the PS3 Active 2 with the sensors and heart rate monitor; I'll be starting that next Monday (when the rest of my 'working out gear' has arrived. I am currently topless. I also have a Wii Fit/Plus, but have heard that the Active 2 is a really intense work out, so I'll probably stick with that.
I am cutting out all sweet treats/crisps etc. and will embark on a low carb diet - cutting out bread, pasta and tons of taties. This works for me and I know my body can cope with tuna and salad leaves. If you're going carb free for the first time, speak to health people (you know the score). 
I will also be using The Y Plan Body Confidence (Body Confidence for Mums) DVD workout (as supplied for review in the New Year).
From there, when pigs fly, I intend to train for an event, hopefully.
I am weighing in later today and will be dieting/starting my exercise regime from Monday 3rd January 2011. 
I am also doing to Sunday Weigh In on Twitter using the hashtag #1BabyElephant and keeping up to speed with the #FitnessFriday hashtag and the natter on the BECKICKLESIE Forum.
