Today's post is a little bit daunting for me. At 5ft 2 and 38 years young i have found that over the last 6 months i was steadily putting a few pounds on here and there and generally eating a lot of convenience foods and feeling really unhealthy. I have always been prone to gaining weight but am finding as I'm getting older the battle of the bulge is harder to maintain.
On New years eve i made a resolution. My resolution was to get healthy. I'm not measuring my health by weight but my goal is to tone up, get fitter, healthier and stronger. After years of dieting and loosing weight and putting it back on Ive realised that there has to be a better way.
I don't want to count calories. My metabolism is shot from eating so little and then binging that i have to try something that i can maintain that will fit in with my everyday life and not make me feel deprived. So this is what I'm doing:
Cutting out processed foods
Cutting out Alcohol, Coffee, Fizzy drinks
Here's How I'm doing so far.
I have also lost 10 pounds in weight
I can do 10 Press ups ( Compared to 0 )
I can run for 20 mins on a treadmill (Compared to 5)
I have to say I'm surprised at how fast my body has changed. It hasn't been easy and i still have a long way to go but i am proud of myself for what i have achieved in just 6 weeks. I am happy to share what foods Ive been eating and what exercise Ive done if anybody is interested. Thanks for reading and i will be keeping you updated as i continue on this healthy mission. If anybody has any links to healthy eating or exercise blogs id love you to leave me a link so i can get some inspiration xx
