Fat to Fit - Move it to lose it!

This week I have exercised every day, I have done morning workouts and / or going for a mountain bile ride. What are you doing to lose it?

Weight loss is all about what we put in and what we burn off. I am hoping to make a dint in the exercise I do.

It is recommended that you do at least 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical exercise on five or more days a week

Ideas to get you moving:
Walk for 5km or 45 minutes
Purchase a workout DVD from your local store
Start the couch to 5km program
Do interval training
Join a gym
Purchase an active game for your gaming console
Join a sport or fitness group

Keep a Fitness Diary:
Write down everything, form incidental to specific exercise routines. Track and note how you're feeling physically and emotionally and get inspired to work through your issues and toward your goals. 

  • 2 mountain bike rides totalling 18.8km (not my best I know). 
  • Eating more vegetables in dinner and lunches
  • Workout Saturday - thursday
  • 9000 steps + daily 
  • eating 6 meals a day instead of 3.
  • Plan weekly meals
  • Only 2 days of drinking, Saturday and Thursday - Limit 2 drinks.
  • Eat all allocated ProPoints, try not to use Weekly Allocated ProPoints. 
  • Drink more water
  • Do more exercise, even though I am only working at my house doing renovations.
  • Eat more whole foods instead of processed foods, eating every morning my mixmymuesli.

How are you getting moving?


  1. I like how you broke your goals up into segments.
    Getting moving is a necessity to lose. I just decided, reading this, that instead of going home for lunch every day like I've been doing, i'm going to take a 30 minute walk while I'm at work. I'll see if that works!

  2. Good luck with your goals, you'll do great!

  3. Good luck with your goals this week! I keep a fitness diary and it has helped me a lot! Writing down what you eat really helps keep you on track!


Thank you for your gracious comments!
