The Second hump of the Camel

This is a day late.. oops

Weigh in was really good last week! Lost a few pounds and had both my boyfriend and my mum (who I don’t see face to face very often) said they could see that it is coming off of my face! Woohooo! Obviously something is going right!

11th of Feb was Jacks birthday and the 6 nations England Wales match. The most important game of the 6 nations. AND ENGLAND WON! Que lots of beer to be drunk and cake to be eaten! Wasn’t too healthy but ah well, i’m not gonna stop enjoying myself just because i’m on a diet!

Im super behind on the Ab Challenge 😦 But i’m swimming at least twice a week now which is fun! Got back into some of my old synchronised swimming moves the other day, i can’t believe quite how fit I used to be to do these figures!! Damn past Lucy you were strooong!

I am having some minor problems with my knee at the moment, worse pain than usual going through it unfortunately, but the pain is becoming more localised, which might be a good thing?!? But also maaaaaybe not. Let’s see how it goes!

Surprise Valentines Dinner tonight! Lets see what Jack has created!

The Beginning of the Loss

So I 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!
