Blogger Buddy/Buddies Wanted

So, after my post about getting right back into it after having Freddy and setting myself my little missions, I am still pretty much in the same spot, maybe a few steps further forward as I am now back to classes and have been for 4 weeks now and have been for 2 short jogs this week.

I haven't however nutted out the nuts and bolts about specific goals, time lines etc and being a goal orientated person, that's bugging me a little.

I have had a challenging few weeks, reasons I won't go into here, which has unfortunately seen some old habits rear their ugly head again which I am very disappointed about and suffice to say I am now up a few more KG's on top of the few I had to shift after bubs.

I am now ready to step it up a notch and finally get onto establishing my routine further and making headway into the KGs.

To get back to my Pre Preggers weight I don't consider it to be a huge amount but to get to where I would sit ideally I need to lose a few more Kgs as I was sitting a little higher than I should have been when I fell. So I have a good chunk to shift and I am actually looking forward to the changes coming again.

Anyway, to my title................

I was wondering if there is anyone out there that would be interested in joining me, not necessarily in losing weight but for any goal you have, any goal you might want to set yourself, it can be over any time period, for any reason.
So a Buddying up type thing, the more the merrier.

No set dates, unless you want to add your own time scale of course or have an event/goal you are looking towards, no failure.....if you have a bad day, blog about it and use the others to help move you on and carry on.

I was thinking more to provide motivation, support etc should anyone need it along the way.
Was thinking I would set up a new blog so we could post motivation articles, quotes, thought for the day, bits and pieces like that or if you have had a bad day and want to reach out then blog about it and hopefully some kind words will come back and help keep you focused.

We could either stay on our own blogs to record our weeks activity and results or do it on the new blog. We should have our name and goals listed down the side though and update them as we go so we can all see how we are doing.

Anyway, leave me a comment if your interested or feel you would have something to contribute or wanna join in maybe as a way of having some accountability in working towards your health or fitness goals.

Mission #1

As my blog title states.........

'I'm a mum on a mission to be Fit, Healthy & Strong both in mind & body. Jan 2010 will finally see me fulfil what I believe is my purpose in be able to be a full time mum to new baby and my other two gorgeous kids. A healthy and happy mum to my healthy and happy kids.' its time to live this fully.

Ive got the full time mum bit happening now. Ive left my Group fitness Managers job and couldn't feel more relieved, I don't miss it and don't think I will start too.
I still have a few GF classes (4 at the mo) each week, which I returned back to 2 weeks ago, but am in the process of trying to decide if its my time to step away from teaching for good or maybe just a short while, but that's a whole other post!

The other part of my blog title states -
I'm a mum on a mission to be Fit, Healthy & Strong both in mind & body.

I consider I had an exceptionally healthy and happy pregnancy, I exercised to 40 weeks exactly, have an extremely easy labour, a healthy bub, limited my weight gain to the 'guidelines' only gaining 9.5kg on top of my pre-preg weight at 40 weeks pregnant.

What I need to do now is continue all my good work into the now, get my full fitness back, exercise, eat well and continue to work on the mindset I found during my pregnancy journey.

So I need to commence 'my mission', being one that likes a goal, I will be deciding on my mission and setting small goals to achieve.
Bearing in mind I have a new baby, 2 other kids, a husband and a household to run I will be making the goals very doable and realistic I am not gonna bust it all for x weeks, not achieve and end up feeling like shite, I would rather keep setting ongoing small realistic goals and make changes gradually.

Mission #1 -
(Date range of Mission #1 to be decided, but probably leading up to my next Les Mills
- Exercise regularly and consistently for mission period
- Eat a balanced diet (Organic/Free Range where possible)
- Reduce scale weight (realistic goal weight to be decided)
- Reduce Skinfolds from 7 sites (realistic goal mm to be decided)

So just a bit more descision making to be done and I'll be set for blastoff! :)

Loving reading about everyones preps and also other challenges that are happening at the moment, keep blogging all, you provide inspiration!!
