To be honest I’ve been doing well with the challenge.. until two weeks ago. I had my birthday, then I had a few nights out, and then I pretty much put all the weight I had lost back on, Oops.
So apart from that here’s how I’ve done so far:
Weight Lost: 5lbs
Inches off chest: 2
Inches off upper arms: 2
Inches off waist: 0
Inches off hips: 5
Inches off thighs: 3
Inches off calves: 0
As you can see I’ve had some pretty good results so far, I’m really impressed with how quickly I’ve lost the inches! I’m finding the programme relatively easy to stick to, but I usually allow myself one treat day a week so I can still have a little bit of something I crave. The only problem I’m having with the challenge is the exercise side of things. I’ve never been good at exercise, and I struggle to find the motivation to do it.
To try and get myself back on track I’m trying to give myself something to work towards. I’ve hung my Weird Fish dress up on my wardrobe so I can see it everyday to give me the motivation I need. I’ve also started trying it on every week after I’ve weighed myself, just to see how much closer I am to it fitting. I’ve still got a while to go, but it’s encouraging to see the progress each week.
As exercise is one of my weaker points I’ve also given myself to aim for with this. In September I’ve booked to run or walk 5K with a bunch of friends for the British Miltary Fitness challenge. Being the unfittest person ever, this will be quite a challenge for me! I’m determined to keep up with my fitness programme to get a bit more in shape before the event. Hopefully having something to work towards will give me the kick up the backside I need.
Another week and time for another update on my Slip Into Summer challenge with DW Fitness and Weird Fish. After having a pretty bad result last week I was hoping to get back into a good routine this week, and hopefully see some results. Although I had a few meals out this week I tried my best to stick to…
It’s crazy to think that today is the last day of 2013, it seems like only the other day I was writing this post last year. 2013 has been a crazy year with so much happening, so no wonder it’s gone so fast. Probably the best thing that happened in 2013 was the fact I finished uni…
It’s been a busy couple of weeks with Christmas parties, visiting family, and of course the big day it’s self. Now that the festive season is well and truly over, and my Christmas tree is packed away, it’s time to get back into a routine. Tomorrow is my first day back to work after a…
I’m one of those annoying people who always has their phone with them and has to check it every five minutes. Why? Who knows. Maybe I’m worried someone might need to urgently contact me, or I might miss a really hilarious tweet someone’s done if I don’t refresh my feed 400 times. I used to always have really bad luck with…
So here we are already, 2012!?! How insane is that?! Seems like only yesterday I was welcoming in the new year 2011, and now where here in 2012, crazy stuff. So how did I start my new year? I went up north to visit my boyfriend Chris, and we had a couple of friends over…
A while ago I blogged about how I wanted to give up sugar with the help of Healthy Sugar Habits 6 week detox programme. My detox programme ended on the 2nd March so I thought it was time to update on how I got on. I mentioned in my first post that I’m a complete and utter sugar addict….
