Boot Camp

So on the spur of the moment, bored on the bus I might add, I seen a post for a free boot camp trial close to me for a week. 


I signed up. 


It starts tomorrow.  


I am so scared. 

There has been a distinct lack of exercise going on since I finished my 10 week challenge and I’m sad to say that, no I didn’t do my porridge on tuesday diet and no I haven’t kept to my aqua classes or anything remotely healthy. 

I completely live up to my blog name (I polished off one of those quality street toffee finger boxes in 1 sitting!). All I’ve done is eat and eat and when I can’t eat any more I have some chocolate! 

So I have put just under half a stone on and a few inches and for this reason I am going to boot camp! 


But if any of you nice people want to write me a note to excuse me……….


Wish me luck and cross your fingers and pray im in better shape than I feel right now

Week 10 Catch up

So im in my final week of my 10 Week Challenge. 

What an interesting time it has been. I’ve have learnt so much about me, about food, exercise it’s really been an eye opener for me. 

I’ve also had a bit of negativity with comments like ‘well my weight is coming of slowly and without tablets so I will keep my weight off’ and ‘it’s just cheating taking tablets!’ oh yes these have all been said to my face!

Firstly what I have been doing isn’t cheating I have worked so hard and put so much effort in there is no way I have “cheated” at all. And secondly even tho its been 10 weeks in the 2 weeks before I started it I lost 7lb on my own so technically I have the weight over the same time period just using different methods! 

Now onto what I went through and what I learnt doing this diet. 

1) I an so much stronger mentally than I ever thought I was. I have done so much more and so much better than I ever thought I would be able to. Yes I slipped up and yes I had just awful days but I tried. I got up the next day put it behind me and tried again including when I had Labyrinthitis again!

2) I am more aware of the kind of food I should be eating and more importantly the size of the portions I should be eating and I’m enjoying it, well most of it anyway!

3) I DO NOT NEED Chocolate! Who would of thought it! This diet plan has succeeded in killing off my physical need and craving for chocolate. I genuinely needed it. Now I can still eat it but I don’t need it. Ny blood sugar levels are controlled so I don’t feel that crash in the day. I do have a bit, not too much tho, of honey in my diet and maybe this is helping to keep those sugar cravings away. Whatever it is its working and for the first time since being pregnant I know what it’s like to not be dependant on chocolate!

I have found new joy in exercise! Really I have! Yes it’s hard and it’s takes a lot out of you but it’s so true that you really so feel good when you’ve done what you set out to do in a workout. 

I have had set exercises to follow as you know fat burning and toning starting with 2/3 days and working up to 4 and types of exercises. Punishing isn’t in it! Mentally and physically hard to do pushing you to do more and more but the results speak for themselves and as they say no pain no gain! These have been additional to my swimming, aqua classes and taking my daughter swimming and increased hours at work at our busiest period with a lot of time spent on my feet in store!

As I mentioned sunday 1/12/13 is my final weigh in and I’m going all out to make it a good un. I’m now 3lb off my goal of being 12st exactly on finishing day having brought it down from a hefty 13st 9lb my heaviest ever in September this year. 

So wish me luck I hope I do myself and everyone else on this challenge proud and ill be back with my final results as soon as they’re in!

The Diet Really Does Start Monday!

So, my previous post about diets and me having a little Rant about Slimming World, WW etc I still believe in but something has to change in you firstly before any thing will work.
It changed it happened! I wanted to stop and over haul my life I don’t want to be nearly double my healthy BMI and healthy weight target, ok slight exaggeration but I’m not far of it.
I’m 32 I don’t want to lose my 30s being overweight like the later years of my 20s.
I weighed my self thoroughly disgusted and vowed I would try whatever it took. I cut down, I went back to the gym including going to classes and generally got my backside off the sofa away from the comping and out of the house in general.
It worked I lost 3lb! Spurred on by this and by my sister joining the gym with me, I enrolled in more aqua classes took healthy lunches into work and bam, another 4lb off! Half a stone in 2 weeks take that wobbly bits! Goodbye and good riddance.
But tomorrow, tomorrow it all changes. I have been chosen to participate in a 10 week challenge that completely overhauls my entire diet (and obliterates 99% of my food intake!) and I really hope that it’s the kickstart I need to turn this overweight body of mine into something I won’t feel disgusted with when I look in the mirror everyday.
I’m under no illusions that it will be easy I imagine it may be one of the hardest things I have ever done, but I have a new found determination and will to succeed.
It can be done and I will do it!
please join me in my journey for all the ups and downs and everything inbetween
