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 making our first steps into a new venture at work. Fusion. It's going to be harder training sessions focusing more on specific body parts and I really do think it is going to be the kick up the backside I need.

It's time for me to get back my motivation. Time for me to enjoy working on myself and treating my body the way it deserves!

Here is my plan!

3 main meals (all home cooked)
3 snacks (healthy ones)
no more fizzy pop (good lord how will I cope?)
3litres of water per day! (my best friend will be the toilet)
5 days training! 2 Elite based, 3 David Lloyd based.

Monday: Elite (first Fusion day...exciting!)
Tuesday: Rest day (split shift equals tired Amy)
Wednesday: Legs at DL
Thursday: Arms at DL
Friday: Elite session
Saturday: Whole body at DL and swim/sauna to finish (well why not)
Sunday: Climb Roseberry Topping with Sarah (if she doesn't bail)

My goal for the week: To lose 4lbs not eat/drink junk and complete all planned training!

Time to get back to this:

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…
