Happy New Year Everyone
I ended up giving up on any form of control over Christmas when it came to food, mainly because I felt upset by the weight gain (it’s a catch 22) but I finally had a break through with my partner and we have both agreed to get healthy.
We also signed up for tough mudder 5k in September 2018, this is both to set a goal to work towards and also something we have always wanted to do. Now I’m not normally good with New Years resolutions so I’m not classing this as one, the change was just meant to be after Christmas and we figured after New Year’s Eve as we had a few drinks 🤭.
Today has started well (slight hangover) we have used up all unhealthy goods over Christmas and have the bare minimum in, tomorrow we will go shopping and i have some recipes for slow cooker meals, where I just chop up the required ingredients and freeze it and make up some “fakeaways” that I can freeze so we can have a treat once a week (only got so much freezer room though lol) I can do most of this, this week before we start back at uni and the kids back to the child care routine, hopefully then we can keep on top of food at weekends.
In theory this is all doable but I know that it will only work with maximum commitment from me and if my partner does as he says then it will make it easier.
The harder part is the exercise but I’m gonna aim to do 10mins cardio/strength training 3X a week to begin with along with walking to and from uni and increase what I do from there.
I currently weigh 12stone and will take my body measurements this evening, I should be back for the Saturday weigh ins now and fingers crossed this time next year I will be a millionaire.... no wait I meant healthier and a bit fitter 😋
Wish me luck and I hope everyone has a fantastic 2018.
