A few weeks ago I got applauded for wanting to get back onto that proverbial weight loss wagon so quickly - but I need to confess, I lasted all of one day of healthy eating and didn't even get around to exercising.
However, my mindset is definitely in the right place now (after wanting to buy a new jersey and the size Large was too small, sob sob!)
This week, I started doing these exercises at home:
I can't even hold the plank for 20 seconds, so this challenge might take me a little bit longer than 30 days!
Every evening while putting Ella to sleep, I've been spending some time doing these exercises, as well as some additional kettlebell exercises. It only takes me 10-15 minutes, but hey, it's better than nothing!
Our dinners this week have been steak and green beans, chicken coconut curry with sweet potato (my absolute favourite, this is like a comfort food dish!) and last night was savoury mince with baby marrows. (Wyn and Mia had oven chips with their steak, rice with the chicken curry, and pasta with last night's mince. It's not really much extra effort, and didn't bug me at all, my plate of food looked and tasted yummier than theirs each time!)
This morning I went to the gym and did a half-hour session (needed to get back home for Ella's feeding time) - but it felt good! I really want to aim to do my home exercises six nights a week, and then get to the gym at least twice a week, hopefully even more, but let's be realistic for now!
I'm already feeling less sluggish, and it's only day 4 of less "bad carbs".
I'm on a roll, long may it last!
