Made it over the first Hurdle

The first week is always the hardest, its the new routine, getting rid of the classic go to snacks, adjusting meals, allocating the time for exercise and so on.

It has been hard, but not as difficult as believed, I used to eat a lot of bread, like a LOT. I could easily have toast for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch and then have a pizza or burgers for tea. So that has been my nemesis for the week, it was by far my biggest change in diet, and it made me so tired! But I’ve got over it happily, like hump day, difficult at the time but worth it once its over.

I have been for a swim 3 times too! So i’m sticking to that one well! I had forgotten what it felt like to be in the pool! I used to live in it as a kid! I just have to battle with the general public nowadays for space -_-

This year also marked my year anniversary with my boyfriend, so we went out for dinner for that, and I treated myself to a little bit of halloumi (fried as well.. really naughty) when we were out for dinner. Also as it is his birthday next weekend his parents were down for the weekend so we went out for a couple meals with them.. I did still avoid cheese and all bread but it still wasn’t the healthiest weekend ever!

 

Weigh in is tomorrow morning.. Let’s see how it goes…

The Beginning of the Loss

So IĀ got fat. I didn’t notice what I was eating, and I’m still not used to not doing exercise regularly (I hate knee injuries). Exams caused me to snack (A LOT). So many factors, so little exercise.

I am a tall human as well. I’m about 6ft tall (182cm?) but I have crept up to over 15 stone (98kg?). Both fortunately and unfortunately because of my height, I didn’t notice the weight gain as its spread over a larger area.

This is me as of the 29th of January 2016. I am not pleased. (Look at that snazzy split mirror thing that my flatmate put up)

 

BUT I HAVE A PLAN

As of the 30th of January 2016 I have started

  • 30 day Ab Challenge
  • Walking more
  • Going Vegetarian 3 days a week
  • Swimming 3 times a week

Alongside this, I have given up

  • Sweets
  • Chocolate
  • Crisps
  • Takeaway (limited to once every two weeks max this INCLUDES drunk food)
  • Bread (My love for bread is strong, who doesn’t love a sandwich??)
  • Cheese (This is the hard one, I love cheese, all cheese, every cheese. CHEESE!)

 

The idea of all this in theory will push me to reduce my snacking, which got out of control during exams, and become the slightly slimmer human that I used to be.

I aim to put up weekly photos with a list of what I’ve done, in an attempt to encourage myself.. So hopefully there will be progress!
