I tried going to the gym for a couple of weeks but I'm struggling to find the time, so I've come up with a new idea. I've bought the Davina 30 day fat burn DVD from Sky Store and I'm going to try exercising at home. There are a few different exercise sessions built into this DVD and the idea is you look up your 30 day calendar and find out which ones you do each day. I've really enjoyed the boxercise but the abs are killing me...I guess that means it's working right?!?!?
I've almost completed week 1 and have mostly been doing it at night or while I'm in the house by myself but I thought I'd give it a go with toddler. I Have no idea what I was thinking! In my head this was a fun way for us to bond, which would lead to us going out for runs together and sipping carrot juice at the weekend! Who am I kidding - she's 3 and unless we are fighting bad guys or helping all her sick animals then she has no interest at the moment so I think I'll be giving this a miss from now on. At least I got 1 funny video to remember it by - this is why children and exercise don't mix!
I'll give you guys an update once I've completed the 30 days with a full review on the DVD and the results I ended up with.
I am not proud to admit that I can't get through the day without drinking Coca Cola. This is a habit I've been trying to break for a long time as I think the sugar is leading to bad spot breakouts on my face, an issue I was lucky enough to never face through childhood, that has now come back to bit me in the butt.
I'm going to start off by moving from 3/4 cans a day to 1 as my willpower doesn't extend to 0 just yet but I'm hoping once I get my intake levels down, I'll find myself less reliant on sugar and caffeine. I also use it as a stop gap to keep me full between meals but I'd be healthier having a banana so fingers crossed this small step pays off.
Any tips on giving up something you crave? Have you gone through it yourself?
Ok, so here is my journey from the start. It's going to be unfiltered and starting off unflattering but I'm determined that 2019 is going to be a new me. I'm hear to share my journey on how a mum who works 2 jobs and volunteers, finds time for fitness and finally looking after her body that has been much neglected in recent years.
So what are my starting stats, I hear you ask!
- I can jog 5k without training but I feel like I'm going to die by the end
- I am 20lbs heavier than I would like to be but this is more about fitness than weight loss
- I eat on the go and I don't make the healthiest choices so I'm trying to get better
- 3 cans of Coca Cola a day is ridiculous and along with chocolate is making my face break out in spots
There we go - lots of things to work on and I'm going to take small steps in the hope it makes a bigger life change, rather than a crash and burn
