My Program:
for the Spring 5% Challenge my plan is to

- do a seated core workout 3 times a week
- yoga-based exercise routine I have on 3 days
- On the 7th day I will do stretching routines
- I would also like to start running again - so I will begin the C25K type of training routine (using the Race for Life programme in the UK)

Hi. Thanks for stopping by my page. I can understand the thing about weighing in. I have always said during my time here that I feel the whole point is that everything should become such a part of our being that we can maintain our habits and weightloss without the need of weighing or signing in here. I did achieve that, as I kept my weight off during my hiatus but it wasn't enough to keep me losing. I haven't been focused lately so haven't lost any more, but haven't gained either so that's not so bad. Back in the flow now, though!
