Over the last few months so many of you have kindly commented about my weightloss and getting back in shape, your support has been fantastic and very motivational. I have lost my weight and regained my shape through diet and exercise, predominantly Pilates.
So, I am really looking forward to seeing Marjoleine Brugman this weekend whose machine has been instrumental in helping me achieve my goals. I haven't seen her at all since March so I'm sure she will be amazed at the difference in me - a weightloss of 23lbs and toned muscles.
Spending 30 mins to an hour on a Pilates machine is one thing, however cycling from Lands End to John O'Groats is something else completely and not something I could attempt. So imagine Land's End to John O'Groat's AND back again in 6 days, who would be mad enough to do that?
Well a young man called Ben Rockett (aka 'Rockett Man') who my son has come into contact with through his Reviva Fitness company. Ben is making this attempt to inspire and encourage people that with enough effort and determination, we are all capable of achieving something extraordinary. He will be trying to beat the current World Record by almost 21 hours and more importantly he will be raising money for Cardiac Risk in the Young.
If you would like to read more about this attempt or feel you would like to sponsor him have a look at www.rockettrides.com. We hear so many bad things about the youth of today so it is so refreshing to see a young man quite literally 'get on his bike' to do good. I wish him all the best with his attempt.
Talking about young men, only another 48 hours to wait to my 'date' with Westlife, I'm VERY excited! More of that on next weeks blog.
