Spring in my step

Pinch,pinch first of the month and all that jazz.

I’m springing into May quite literally~I decided to drag myself out of bed and restart my exercises that have long since been forgotten.

I did 20 minutes of what should probably really be described as ‘prancing’ around with my hand weights listening to the Greatest Showman (much to the amusement of my kids!).

I have swapped driving to work and now walk everyday which gives me plenty of fresh air and exercise aswell as racking up a few miles and lots of steps~ now to stop Chocolate Friday once and for all and I should find myself winning!

With a family wedding to attend in less than 3 months I am aiming to lose some weight for my new outfit which I need to decide upon, a task that is never easy at the best of times let’s face it.

Today marks a new day of a new month~the sun is shining and I’m smiling, let’s hope both those things last! Have a lovely day everyone. ❤️x

Love yourself

It’s no secret that I am on a forever diet promising myself I’ll be good tomorrow or start again on Monday.

Generally these days never come and I end up eating the wrong things and then wishing I hadn’t!

I’ve started walking to work each day and using my Fitbit more which is helping to motivate me~now if someone could motivate me to stop eating chocolate aswell that would be marvellous!

This last week or so I’ve been having a huge clear out and de~clutter at home which is much needed.

Whilst doing so I have come across old photographs and apart from being shocked at how young I looked back then a few other things have caught my attention, mainly the way I looked over the years. In the photos I can see how I was slimmer at times and also bigger too. I looked at those photos and thought wow I wish I looked like that now and also oh my goodness I’m glad I don’t look like that now.

So this morning as I was getting dressed I stopped and paused, usually I avoid the mirror like the plague but today I looked and thought to myself ‘do you know what? This body has had 3 babies inside it, (sadly only delivered 2)

It’s had three major operations over the course of a one year period, and dealt with the inevitable ups and downs of life’.

It may not be perfect to look at but I’m healthy and I’m happy.

I know what I need to eat and what I need to do to lose that weight and tone up and I like to think that one day I will find myself more at ease with my body.

But for now~I’ll try and make the most of what I’ve got after all it’s not so bad, and it deserves looking after, however I can’t promise to stop eating chocolate or of course my favourite cherry bakewells, I’ll try and give it more water and less coffee well ok lets be realistic not less coffee but maybe the same amount of water to keep things balanced!

Happy Friday everyone.❤️x
