The Constant Battle.

We've all been there. You say you want to lose weight/ eat more healthily/ tone up, set up a whole regime and get really into it for about 3 weeks. Then after a heavy weekend of Pimms, Cider and BBQ food you fall off the wagon and never get back on. 

At the beginning of this year I did exactly this but managed to last until March. My fitness levels went up in a very short amount of time and I dropped a dress size without really noticing.  Slowly but surely I've lost my will power and have noticed that (especially after my decadent holiday) things are starting to go the other way. So what better motivation than writing about this journey on here? Now I'm not going to change into a fitness freak but I would like to share any significant progress I've made or particularly good recipes, workouts and motivational pictures/quotes I find along the way!

I'm thinking I will do a weekly post rather then just write it down when it pops into my head but we shall see how it goes!

So goals wise? I never weigh myself as I would rather concentrate on how my clothes fit. Muscle weighs more than fat so if I get toned I would weigh more if anything. I would like to be another dress size smaller by Christmas but more importantly just want to feel the best I've ever felt!

  1. I toned up loads when I trained for Race for Life in June but now that I haven't got anything to train for it's easy for my to be lazy and just think I can't be bothered to go to the gym. Why don't you sign up for a race or something like that to keep you motivated? When you feel lazy you'll think 'I don't want to do bad' and get to the gym! I'm thinking of signing up for the Colour 5k on 31st August in Northampton. I think we should do it and get Mia involved too ;) x
