Wow, what a beautiful sunny day it is today, I’m laying out in my garden sunbathing whilst writing this blog post thinking this is the life. I could definitely get used to this and to say this is making me so excited to go on holiday in August would be an understatement. Italy I’m ready for ya!
Of course as I’m sunbathing I’m laying out in my bikini and I’m feeling soooo good, the healthy eating and gym sessions are paying off and I’m finally starting to feel confident and happy with my body. I’m so happy. I have a little way to go to until I’m really where I want to be but I’m getting there and I’m so pleased with how much I’ve achieved so far.
This week I haven’t actually gone to the gym at all. I’ve wanted to, but I’ve had to save my taxi money I’d have used for this week for next week instead, but I will definitely be going to the gym twice next week, doing 2x two hour sessions to make up for what I’ve missed. I’ve decided that from next week onwards I’m going to stay longer at the gym when I go, normally I go for about just over an hour but now I’m going to make sure I stay for at least an hour and a half but mostly aim for two hour sessions. I’m going to stick to my goal of going at least twice a week but I’m aiming to throw in an extra gym sesh every other week so sometimes I go three times. I’m really looking forward to getting on with this and going back to the gym next week, I’ve missed it so much (who’d have thought I’d ever say that hey?)!
Although I haven’t been to the gym at all this week I don’t feel bad about it as I’ve been eating really well plus I did an amazing 20 minute toning workout this morning which left me feeling so good afterwards. I’m happy.
This week my eating has been on point. I had quite an unhealthy day on Sunday and the same on Monday, but since then I’ve literally done amazing and using my food journal has definitely helped so much. I’ve set calorie goals for each day right up until the end of this month and I’ve found this to be really helpful in keeping me motivated to eat clean and healthy. So far I’ve consumed around 100 less calories this week than I’ve given myself allowance for which is amazing and so far today I’ve eaten clean, however I am off clubbing tonight so we’ll just see what happens this evening. You know what it’s like after a night out, food quickly becomes your best friend and with a pizza place right next to the club, I may find it a struggle to resist.
I’ve still had a couple of treats here and there and like I always go on about, I’ve made sure not to deprive myself of anything. I’ve snacked on my favourite kit Kats, Wotsits and Squares. When there have been times I’ve wanted an extra treat before dinner, even though I didn’t really need one, I’ve curbed my cravings by reaching for my favourite fruit banana rather than giving in to the temptation of chocolate and crisps which has been excellent, adding to my daily fruit intake and keeping my diet clean.
I am so proud of my eating choices this week, I really feel as if I’ve done so well and I’m really noticing positive changes to my body now.
I am so excited to see what the next week holds, I’ve a feeling it’s going to be even better than this one!
