A small victory  
Today I completed the Wii EA Sports Active 30 day challenge on low intensity. This is not Wii fit which is admittedly a bit rubbish. This is a series of preset workouts, designed by Oprah's personal trainer, that combines upper and lower body exercises with cardio. It creates a fitness program where you workout 5 days out of seven, combining different sets of exercises. In the low intensity version these only add up to about 20mins a day.

I've probably lost about a pound in total, but I'm not really bothered because I'm not just doing this to lose weight. My cardio and general fitness were so bad that I just wanted to get through this and set myself up to now move on to the medium intensity. In some places the low is still hard - 10 squats with calf raises anyone? - but it definitely is easier. I've made some progress.

The important thing is, I WANT to do it every day. It doesn't feel like a chore and it doesn't get boring. It's a challenge and I like challenges. It's variety which my flighty mind desperately needs.

And so tomorrow, if off to start the medium and I'm actually raring to go...

Cheers hun.

I'm finding the medium much harder than the low intensity, but in a way that's good because, fingers crossed, it'll get easier.
