Short update today! Busy Bee and all.

Today I completed PiYo Day 3 - Define: Upper Body. Let's just say my upper body needs a lot of strengthening. I'm still loving the workouts and the added bonus about todays workout, it's only 20 minutes long! So even when my back was hurting, I've had barely any sleep and I have a million things to be doing, it was only 20 minutes out of my day. I am still working on my tricep pushups, I'd like to see them improve the more practice I get. I also want to see my general fluidity between movements improve. Only time will tell.

 I've printed out the workout timetable and I'm writing in my little notes underneath. Today was also the day that I was sup;sed to be running with the NHS couch to 5k app, I'm in week 4 of that, but life is getting in the way. With family members in hospital, dental appointments and an attempt at catching up on sleep after 10 hours in A&E, running maybe getting put on the back burner for today. 

Here's hoping I enjoy tomorrows workout - Sweat. That sounds delightful...

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…


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…
