After new years I wrote a post of what I wanted to get done in the New Year and one of them was to get fitter and eat healthier. I did plan on writing a weekly post as an update on where I was up to but that was but a pipe dream.
I’m not going to mention what my weight is exactly but I was hoping for two things: 1. to fit into a pair of shorts I’d bought the week after Christmas from Topshop that my mum had to pull me out of and 2. to lose around a stone and a half. I was doing well. I didn’t have any coke or sweets in the whole of January and was so proud of myself. So far, I’ve lost around 10 lbs and I now fit into my shorts!
Then, I had to go to Spain for a couple of days with work. So I gave myself a week off which turned into two weeks, which then turned into three weeks. So I forced myself to have a bit of a go this weekend to ease myself back into things. I’m determined to lose a bit more weight, and definitely get more toned before my holiday so I’m a more body confident and happy. And, at the end of the day, being happy is the most important thing for all of us no matter what size we are.
To meet my aims, heres what I’ve been trying to keep to:
1. 3 fitness classes a week: Spinning is by far my favourite class with Legs, Bums and Tums coming in a close second. They’re the only classes where I walk away feeling like I’ve actually done some good work.
2. Pop Pilates videos on You Tube: These pilates videos are absolutely brilliant. You dont need any equipment and can do them in the comfort of your own home. Even after a 10 minute video, I can feel the effects the day after.
3. Eat less sweets: I have the worlds worst sweet tooth and I would much rather eat sweets for breakfast then cereal or porridge.
As I’ve said these are what I’ve been trying to do and when I do it I feel so much better and healthier. Hopefully, I’ll be able to stick to it until my holiday!
