Hi everyone. So as a lot of you know, I've been on a strict detox diet for a while now to try and really shift some weight quickly. My aim was to lose 11 pounds in 17 days, and I suppose I haven't done badly on this- I have lost 7.7lbs in 10 days. I have stuck to the food rules I set myself- For the first 6 days I was just eating granola bars, fruit juices in the morning, and vegetables for lunch and dinner (steamed/ stir fried/ "souped"), and then I introduced lean means (lean beef, chicken and turkey) on Tuesday.
But since sunday I haven't exercised AT ALL, and I'm worried about certain patterns. Up until now my evenings have been all to myself really, because my boyfriend was working in a hotel doing ridiculous hours- so I could y'know, go to the gym for a couple of hours, have a salad when I get home and go straight to bed. Now, my boyfriend has got a new job where he's at home every evenings, we can spend the whole of sundays together, and he's completely off on Mondays too. Of course I am very happy about this, because I have really missed him the last couple of months, but this means absolute 0 for my fitness regime!!
Because during the week by the time I finish work (5pm), go shopping at Waitrose for dinner/ bits and bobs, get home (6:15pm), do housework (6:45pm), relax a little (15 mins), Get dinner ready for myself and my fella for 8pm, eat and watch a bit of telly, its 9:30 and I have to go to bed (my fella can stay up a little later because he doesn't start as early). I don't want to ask my boyfriend to do dinner all the time, as he doesn't get home until later than me anyway, and I do enjoy cooking and that.
So that just leaves me Friday nights (because I don't have to sleep as early), Saturday daytimes, sunday morning possibly, and maybe Monday evenings (if I can get my fella to do housework/ cook on Mondays) to do exercise. Will this be good enough? Feel like my routine is all the way out of whack now!!! How do you guys do it, how do you fit in exercise!?!?
