I’m now into the third month of my Slip Into Summer challenge with DW Fitness and Weird Fish, it’s scary how quickly this has gone! Now that we’re in month three everything’s stepped up a game. The workouts are harder, and the diet is stricter, and as it’s the last month of the challenge I’m really hoping to see some results. Only a month left to go, and I really want to lose some serious weight and fit into my pretty Weird Fish dress!
Recently I’ve been finding the challenge tough since I fell off the wagon, which I talked about in my first update a few weeks ago, but the past two weeks I’ve found myself in love with the programme again. I’ve even enjoyed working out, which is a first for me! I’m even starting to feel the benefits from my gym sessions, I’m feeling happier, I’m sleeping better, and I’m generally feeling a whole load better. As I’ve had a good couple of weeks on the plan I was hoping to see some good results once I weighed myself, especially as I put on weight in my last update. So I was pretty gutted when I put on half a pound this week. I know half a pound isn’t much, but I just don’t understand how, I’ve been tracking everything I ate, I’ve been doing my workouts, and I’ve really been sticking to the plan.
For a minute I was feeling pretty down about the whole thing again, and how I wouldn’t fit into my pretty new dress at the end of the challenge, but then I decided to take a look at my measurements at the start of the challenge, and compare them to where I am now:
Chest: 2cm lost
Upper arms: 2cm lost
Waist: 5cm lost
Hips: 5cm lost
Left Thigh: 1cm lost
Right Thigh: +3cm
Left Calf: 1cm lost
Right Calf: no change
Although the scales haven’t been good, my measurements are showing a different story! I’m so pleased I’ve lost 5cm off my waist and hips, as those are the areas I hate the most. It’s good to see all my workouts are starting to pay off, and with only a month to go it’s time to really up my game. I’m looking forward to seeing a few more cm’s coming off, and hopefully next week I’ll finally lose some weight!
Now it feels like we’re in full blown autumn weather with the dark evenings, golden leaves on the ground, I’ve even dug out my winter coat. I think autumn is probably my favourite season, where I can break out all my old favourite jumpers, and sit under cosy blankets and no one can judge me….
Having a boyfriend who’s from Sunderland, a lot of our ‘holiday’ time is spent travelling up the A1 to visit friends and family members up there. I enjoy visiting the north, but I do find it very different from down here. They use funny words for one thing. On our last trip up north I…
This weekend I decided to take some time out and have a fairly quiet weekend. The past few weeks have been crazy busy, I recently went away on a trip up north with the other half to visit his parents. It was a really nice time away, and it was actually the most amount of…
Although it’s been awhile since I’ve now finished education, a whole two years in fact, I a thought I’d share a great service that everyone should know about – Campus Book Rentals. Campus Book Rentals is the perfect service if you need several text books for your course, but really don’t want to spend the hundreds involved in the cost of buying them. Thinking…
Hi my name’s Lisahh-Jayne and I’m a technology addict. I find myself constantly needing pieces of technology just because they’re the latest thing. I find myself constantly upgrading my phone to the latest iPhone that’s just come out, or needing the latest gadget that somehow will make my life easier even though I’ve coped fine without it…
The other day I met up with some of my lovely blogger friends Bex, Shona and Hannah to do what bloggers do best, shopping! We all met up in St Albans and had a good look around the shops and got some food at Wetherspoons. At the time I planned on being good, as…
