News and the Shred
So now I am breathing a huge sigh of relief. I don't need to write something completely different. I have to make changes, but that's fine. The revisions seem reasonable so I'm going to bury my head in the sand for the next month and work away on them.
Next, I've joined the Craze. The Craze for the Shred. I've heard other people talking about it and finally decided to see what it was all about. I'm currently only on Day 4 and I'm still at level one of the 30 day Shred. Apparently if you follow this 20 min exercise routine every day for 30 days you can lose 7-10lbs, change shape and drop a dress size. Now I hate exercise. I'm practically allergic to it. I danced up until I was 17. Then did nothing for years. I went swimming for a bit, only because I'm not a particularly good swimmer and wanted to get better. But it annoyed me. The grey-haired swimming brigade kept swimming in front of me (going breadth wise instead of length wise - why would people do that?) and as I can't tread water, every time they swam in front of me I sank like a stone. Recently I've been going to a Zumba class once a week and have quite enjoyed it, but an hour a week is not going to sort out my flabby tum.
So, Shred it is! I've decided not to weigh myself until the end of the 30 days - so I'll let you know how it goes.
Finally a huge congratulations to Leah Ashton, the winner of New Voices who just sold her book to Mills and Boon. I look forward to reading it!
