Minimise Me - Weight Loss Weekly #1

One of my goals for this year, probably the biggest and most important, is to lose weight and eat healthier. I'm increasing my exercise too and I want to get fit. Running a bath is hard enough work these days never mind a marathon, and far too many cheeseburgers and chocolates fall into my face which I really need to change.

So, I'm calorie counting each day, using My Fitness Pal to log my progress and I will be weighing myself each Monday. I've begun and given up so many times before but as the Mr and I have already booked three holidays for the year (woohoo) and I want to feel confident in summer fashion I feel as though I'm in right mindset to do this. I began 5th January.

After the first 7 days (yesterday) I was 523 calories under my weekly goal in total. Each day I managed to stick with my daily goal bar Tuesday and Thursday where I was craving Coca-Cola a little too much and I allowed myself a pint cup. Considering I'm addicted to the stuff and I've not had any bar those two glasses this week I'm doing pretty well, plus if I deprive myself completely of my favourite things I know I will have a binge session which I really don't want!

I walked for 85 minutes around Badby Wood and I did an hour of Shaun T Hip Hop Abs which didn't actually kill me. Meals included Slimming World cottage pie and chicken tikka masala. I'm actually quite surprised that I feel a lot happier and more energetic when I expected to be miserable. It must be all the vitamins from plenty of fresh fruit and veg plus ensuring I get my 2 litres+ of water.
