Update

Well....I haven't been on here for a long time. Sorry about that. Been a very busy girl. But I thought I would pop back on here and give an update of my progress so far.

So I have been doing Slimming World for about 14 weeks now, to date I have lost 1 Stone. I have also had some losses followed buy some gains. I let my sweet tooth run free with me for a while, but I'm fully on the band wagon again!

I have also started doing pilates classes every week and wait for it....I went to MetaFit!

METAFIT - 30 Mins of sheer hell followed by 6 days of agony. It was intense! I used to do Insanity and even started Jillian Michael's Body revolution and I have to be honest, Metafit killed me. It probably doesn't help I forgot my water bottle in the car and half way through I had to run away to the bathroom and drink from the tap. Yep I was shattered!

I then spent 6 days whimpering at every little movement.

Now last week I had a gain. I had a bad week of sugar filled goodies and letting myself go a little and it followed with a gain. I then decided I needed a good pick up the butt to get me back in gear. I have done a week of 'SP' Slimming world this week. It is basically meals filled with speed food and protein. No carbs and pretty much no dairy. It is hard and for anyone wanting to give it a go, I would suggest planning every meal down to the last bit. The advantages of SP is that you get one healthy Extra A choice and two B choices. 

I tried making oat cookies...they are a bit chewy though. Girls gotta get her sugar someway.

I have noticed that this week I have struggled with tiredness. I am lacking in energy and needing naps to keep myself going throughout the day. Right now all I want to do is sleep.

Tomorrow is weigh in day. I will keep you updated with my progress.

Back to Basics

Hi my name is Amy and I'm a crap-oholic! I clearly need an intervention or some sort of junk food rehab clinic to lock me up!

Last week I started being slightly healthier, I say slightly because when it came to 5am and starting work at 5:30am my sugar tooth kicked in with a Nutella go bar...baaaad mistake discovering those bad boys.

I managed to lose 4lbs throughout the week but come the weekend we had a craft and cake fair at work and the will power practically ran out the building!





Tomorrow is a new day! Everyone has stumbles. This is mine. I was showing clients at work my before and after photographs and I was reminded of how much work and effort I put into myself this time last year. I was a whole 20lbs light and may I even say it, the abs were becoming an actual thing! They were there! I mean I still had a layer of fat around them but they definitely existed. Then all willpower and motivation left and here I am. A junk food-aholic confessing my sins on here.

Tomorrow we are m…

Challenges!

At the beginning of the year, I set myself the goal of becoming fitter. Like so many people I'm realising just how busy and hectic life is without adding in trips to the gym and working up a sweat doing various different workout activities.

As a solution to this problem, I dug out my old faithful Fitbit. I have a Fitbit Flex which is the basic wristband model. As far as I'm concerned it does everything I require: track my steps; allow me to input my food intake; monitor my water consumption; and track my sleep pattern. In the photograph below you will notice one shining light; this indicates roughly how many steps you've taken. Now this was taken at the beginning of the day, with my daily goal of 10,000 steps, one dot indicates 2000 steps taken.

The reason I'm blogging about this today is not to give you the hard sell on a Fitbit or other step counting devices out on the market; and it most certainly isn't to make you go all calorie counting crazy. I simply thought…
