I have been trying to loose some weight for quite a while now , but with not much success . I have tried quite a few different diets and I would be very keen for a couple of days but than slowly losing interest for all the different reasons ( feeling too hungry , over exercising and than feeling exhausted, working long hours , etc. )
As a result of a google search , I have come across the NHS 12 week plan . Did a bit of reading and it makes sense to me so am very keen ( for now ) to give it a go !
Counting calories is a fairly new concept to me ( as most of the other diets I tried ,were excluding these or that ) so have armed myself with some accurate kitchen scales , booked mArked the calorie counter on the NHS website and did an impressively healthy shopping list for the week . I am a bit of a foodie - so I found it helpful to write down a list of unprocessed foods I like ( decided to have a cooked from scratch approach to the meals I'll be having - simple but tasty ) and check the calories they contain and how to turn them into meals that I like and still be under the advised . 1400 kcal per day intake whilst dieting .
Couple of other little things I 've done to make things easier : got a cute water flask , some Tupperware for packing lunch and snacks for the day at work ( working 11 hours, 5 days a week requires organising and pre planning to make it work ) , signing up to this amazing community !!Will have breakfast and dinner at home
Doing T25 , a DVD workout that will ( if getting myself to do it on a daily basis ) provide me with the recommended 150 minutes of varied work outs per week .
So , the plan is writen down and I have started today - stuck to my calories intake and did my exercises- feeling happy !
My aim is to loose approximately 10 kg in 12 to 15 weeks time if possible . I will keep this as a diary of my journey , a way to motivate myself and see where I will get to in 15 weeks Having two weddings to attend to and an amazing summer holiday in early August, so hopefully I will look great in the pictures :))
Never written a post before , so here is to a new start for everything !!
