Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest features here.
Is there anything in the world more irritating than being told by someone how much weight they’ve lost? And how they’ve done it? And how you should try it too (because frankly you’re porky)?!
Fear not, I’m not about to start spouting my waist measurements at you or post close up shots of my six pack (unless a ripple fat effect counts).
But maybe it’s not too annoying to let you know that one week into George’s Boot Camp I am definitely feeling stronger, more energised, and even slightly, ahem, more *pert*. That last bit might be wishful thinking, but flip me, I seem to be doing an awful lot of squats these days.
I’m not sure when I crossed the rubicon from sporty girl to wrinkled-t-shirt-from-the-back-of-the-cupboard moocher – I suspect it was around the time that I first realised that, four years after my first child, I was still wearing maternity tops! – but now I’ve decided I have to get a grip.
My fitness wardrobe consists of sports bras that don’t fit, t-shirts I’d never show the outside world in a gazillion years (and yet I do, because I’m wearing them at my fitness class in public!), white socks that are bobbled and dishwater grey. Not a good look.
So… If I’m going to knock myself out every week doing press ups and shuttle runs, I may as well look half-decent doing it. This week I’m going to research the coolest kit I can find for the new season – then you can also wear it when you claim your free week of bootcamp/one-to-one phone coaching and join me at the class!
