March

Wow, the 3rd month of the year! How quick is this year going already? Its crazy!

For the past 2 years I have done a “month off March” period to cull my poor eating habits and just challenge myself. This year I wasnt planning on doing anything, but after Matt & I saw the British Heart Foundation advert for dechocx and we decided that actually lets do it.

So for the past few days we both have been Chocolate free, however I have also been sweet, biscuit AND crisp free.

In my slimming world group 2 weeks ago I made the decision to go back to basics AND challenged myself to have my 1.5 stone award BEFORE we go to Cuba in May!

Matt & I both encourage each other witb naughty eating habits so I know this month will be a challenge BUT it will do us both some good and I know it will help me stick to plan and get me closer to reaching my goal!

My aim is to have at least my 1 stone award by the end of March!

Have a great March xxx

Boobies!!!

Men – There Are No Boobies On Show!

Good Evening All!

I am breaking a rule tonight & using technology after 9pm…..it is Saturday after all!

So today I was running some errands with Matt and decided to test my luck and pop into Marks & Spencers to see if they had any gaps for a Bra fitting today & low and behold they had a gap in the next half hour! So we had a walk around and I found some pretty bras and also realised there was an offer on for anyone that had a free bra fitting today – BARGAIN!

The fitting its self was pretty normal, however I did find out that I am between band sizes and also should be wearing a larger cup size than I am currently! It did take us a while to find a few bra’s that I liked and also fitted, I was having to try a 34 and if that was too tight at 36 – but it all depended on the style of bra as to what band size I needed. I didn’t really realise how long I had been in there for until I walked out the changing room and saw Matt…..

He Does Not Look Impressed!

So I got myself some bras that were in the sale and we grabbed some lunch and headed back home!

Successful trip to Marks & Spencer I think!

p.s the offer finishes tomorrow!

Motivation…….

Today I ran 1/2 mile in 7 minutes, yes I know that’s slow and not a great time but I ran the whole way and didn’t stop. For me that is a bit achievement .

I have started to get used to being at the gym for an hour and splitting that hour between cardio and weights. Some days are easier than others, but this journey is a LONG one and results won’t come over night, you have to WORK hard to see the results and it makes it even better when you get there!

Don’t give up!

Letting The Side Down…..

Hey!

I have been letting myself down a bit! I only managed 45mins at the gym on Monday but managed an hr on Sunday! I haven’t been since, but will be bk tomorrow and Friday and I WILL do 1hr! I felt so good afterwards on Sunday…..

Also the whole no technology after 9 kinda got forgotten about but I am going to make a conscious effort to start it as of tonight!

Things have just been a bit manic so far this month, so I am looking forward to settling down and into a routine for the rest of the month!

Let get this month kick started and kicked into shape!!!

Motivation March

Hello Everyone!

I hope you all are doing ok and keeping well. I have been thinking about March and how it is going to be a positive month for me, so I have set some things to achieve for march and encourage you to do the same!

Work out for 1 hour at the gym I will quite often stay between 30-45minutes at the gym, but I think if I spent 1 hour of pure hard work and dedication at the gym for the 3-4 days that I go then I will really start to see the benefit when I measure myself and also hopefully on the scales! Hopefully this will form a habit and after a couple of weeks it will be easy for me to stay for 1 hour!

Get my boobs measured! Ok! this is a random one – but it makes sense, there is sooo many women out there wearing the wrong size bra & I cannot remember the last time I got myself measured. Its so beneficial to be wearing the right size bra not only for your comfort but to help with posture & allowing your clothes to fit appropriately. So I’m getting measured!

Get your 1.5 stone award at slimming world! This has been on my to-do list for the longest time! I am 5lb away from getting this award. THis would be easy to achieve if I was on plan 100% all the time & I will admit I’m not. However now I will be I am going to get to this goal and I am going to sort this out for once and for all! I have decided I am going to get a food diary written down and be honest with what I am putting in my body!

No technology after 9pm! This is a bit of an odd one, but I honestly think it will help me to relax and go to bed a lot easier and get some proper rest and really switch off.

I am hoping that this will really help me to get me motivated and get some habits formed so that everything will start to flow more naturally and I will get to where I want to be!

What are your goals for march? what would you like to achieve?
