I've not written in ages for one reason or another, but I've been thinking I should really start back up again, so here goes!
I've finished bootcamp now, and although I really worked hard at it, I didn't stick to the diet (meals are fine, snacking in between isn't a different story!) so only lost 4lbs, but luckily I've lost an inch and a quarter off my waist and I'm still feeling good about myself...BUT...yesterday, I booked a holiday to Zante, and we leave 3 weeks today, I officially need to up my game!
So, it's early days, but I had cereal for breakfast, chicken pasta salad for lunch, a healthy tea with more salad, and instead of the Ben and Jerry's Half Baked that I bought half price at Tesco for our DVD (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows =D) snack, I had houmous and sesame seed breadsticks... so proud of me! And to top it off, before the dvd, me and John did a mini exercise routine in his house, including lots of step ups, squats, lunges, crunches, and some press ups using an exercise ball cos that's the only way I can do them! I also walked to work and back :)
This morning I got up and did more step ups, lunges, squats, press ups and crunches, then I had porridge for breakfast with a touch of golden syrup and a handful of strawberries...it was ok I suppose lol was meant to have blueberries too but they weren't ripe.
As I said, it's early days, but I'm trying to make sure I do some form of exercise each day, be it strength training at home, a run, swim, gym, walk to work, or aqua aerobics. They're not particularly strenuous but if I do what I can each day between work and revision, it should help, and I'm feeling good already, lets just hope I can keep it up for the next 3 weeks, Zante here we come! I wish I had a pic of how I look right now to compare, but all my recent photos are of me rather drunk (been naughty the last few weeks!) and you can't really see my figure, I'll get one for my next post.
Time for a walk, until next time...
