Well he's been and gone again! its a new year and a new start! I do have to wonder how many resolutions have been broken already?! Myself I didn't make a resolution as I always break them instead I started to really look at myself, as a woman, I am sure most if all of you can relate to this, I am very self critical and my biggest issue is my weight and health. Since a very young age I have witnessed my mum yo-yo dieting trying the latest work outs, aerobics classes etc and my dad and his family always teased us with "fat" jibes. Now I am not blaming my upbringing for my current issues but clearly they have had an effect.
I am now 31 years old with a soon to be a 4 year old daughter who I want to have a healthy relationship with food and exercise so the question is what to do? I decided to cut "junk food" out of my diet and start to jog again. I was then approached by a friend up north in the new year to take part in a 30 day kick start programme which would involve daily exercise challenges as well as workouts 3 times a week and a weekly meal plan. I jumped at the opportunity. I am a week in my meals and diet has completely changed I have embraced the Paleo lifestyle and the workouts I do with the support and guidance of my 2 personal trainers, my daughter and my husband.
So progress so far 4lb loss and 1inch! Amazing I will happily share my progress pictures with you at the end of the 30 days so you can see the difference this is making to me. I have also re discovered sausages I am LOVING them at the moment, I haven't eaten red meat and eggs for 15 years and now I eat them so much! its amazing how your taste buds change with diet and age!
Well I will say by for now but I will share progress news very soon :)
