So today is officially the start of Weight Loss Wednesday!
I’ve decided enough is enough, I’ve put on A LOT of weight over the last few months and I really need to start doing something about it, so I’ve joined up with Weight Loss Wednesday! If you want to find out more about the group and join in yourself, you can check out the details here. I’ll be joining in the Twitter chat too which is on Thursdays at 8pm, with hashtag #bloggersWLW. I hope to see you there!!
I’ve just started my diet on Monday, and my aim is to post every Wednesday with updates, inspiration and any other diet and exercise related stuff that’s going on with me at the time. Hopefully by reading everybody elses posts, and by joining in the Twitter chat, we will help motivate each other to achieve our goals. So, in the last few months I’ve put on a LOT of weight, I know I’ve put this weight on due to depression and comfort eating – I’m not like ‘OMG how on earth did I put so much weight on!?’ I’m completely aware I’ve been eating absolutely everything I could get my grubby little mitts on. The start of the new year has inspired me and I now finally feel like I’m ready to do something about it! 🙂
So my plan is actually quite a simple one. I’m eating healthily, I’ve completely cut out the junk which I’ve been gorging on over the last few months, and I’ll be doing light exercise for half an hour every day after the first week – I’m leaving it a week as I think I need to get used to the change of diet before jumping into exercise that I’m not used to. Easy, right??? My aim is to lose 2 stones which I hope to do by my birthday (my 30th birthday!) which is mid June. This may be a bit optimistic but I’ll see how it goes! I’ll explain in more detail about my diet and exercise plan over the coming weeks.
I’ll be taking my measurements – bust, waist and hips, and my weight once a week and I’ll be reporting the results here on Wednesdays. I’ve also started a one week detox this week using Revive Active – ‘a unique anti-aging and health and beauty supplement which has been clinically proven to boost cardiovascular health, increase energy levels and support the immune system.’ It’s basically a powder you add to orange juice every morning, You can read more about it here and I’ll report back on it next week!
Jennifer has asked us to include our inspirations, which I think is a really good idea. I only have two at the moment, one being ‘Not Giving In’ by Rudimental, I listen to it every day 🙂
And the other being Skopljak – this girl has legs to die for!! Follow her on Instagram at http://instagram.com/skopljak
Right that’s enough waffling for now, so onwards and upwards hey! Good luck everyone!! xxx
