Yes, I have said this before. I am renewing my attempts to improve my health and general fitness … not to mention my expanding sit-down belly! I have said this so many times before and I keep on letting myself and everyone else down by falling off the wagon again.
I so fed up with myself!
I simply have never had the ability to stick with exercise plans or healthy eating plans. I always start to feel very self conscious and cravings for cheeseburgers are sooooooo tempting! However, this time I am trying something different … or rather … WE are trying something different.
My husband and I have just joined our local gym as a couple. I’m hoping that having him go on this journey with me aswell will help to keep me in gear. He has been in this morning while I’m at work and is going to go tonight with me too. We also both have inductions booked with a personal trainer so we can get on the right routine to help us rech our goals.
So … having spent £150 on new sports wear (this stuff adds up quick!) it’s time to get my ass (and my belly) in shape again.
We are also working hard to try and improve our food intake while still eating the types of food that we like. So we are sticking to food plans now and trying to keep our portion sizes down (My eyes are so much bigger than my belly!)
This weeks plan is …
Monday: Warm chicken ceasar salad with garlic flatbread.
Tuesday: Vegetarian meatballs and mash (gotta love IKEA food)
Wednesday: Noodles with prawn crackers
Thursday: soup and fresh bread roll
Friday: Sweet chilli pork belly with rice
Saturday: Breaded turkey breast with home made chips
Sunday: Lamb shank with mash
I really hope we are not rushing into this too quickly.
