  • New Body Mission – Month Thre..

    2013-11-25 19.09.08

    So, three months in and almost completely back on it.

    I’ve been eating better than ever other than snacking, I seem to snack a lot and I can’t control myself. It’s like that daily Twirl has become a habit, a bad habit that I really need to kick. I’ve bought apples and a cucumber to try and have them instead but I seem to be eating that and then the chocolate treat too. The vending machines in the new office are my nemesis.

    This coming month I’m going to try and aim for fat loss not weight loss. I think I’ve made it to as low as I’m going to get weight wise, now I want to lose the fat and tone up so you can see more definition in my body.

    I’ve added photos to this month from yesterday, I still have the problem areas that I want to work on. I feel like I’m looking more pair shaped nowadays, especially since my boobs have definitely shrunk. I know you can’t target things specifically but I want to work on my hips/love handles, I think these are the things that make me still look quite large and wide. Obviously that bulge at the top of my shorts would be great if that decreased but I know how hard it is to work on that bit specifically. I’m also wanting to work on my thighs and legs in general, they’ve always been pretty large and are something that when I look at myself I notice the most.

    Looking at numbers below, I am really happy with how things are looking, I’m down 2lbs, my fat percentage is down, although that fluctuates a lot at the moment. And amazingly my muscle is up, only slightly but that still impresses me! I’m amazed that I’ve lost 2cm from my love handles/tummy seeing as that’s the main area I struggle with.

    We’ll see how my gym goes, my membership at David Lloyds is now ended, but, we have a small gym in the new work office so hopefully I can go for at least 20 minutes a day.

    Have you got any tips for reducing fat? I’d really like to hear them if so.

  • New Body Mission – The Weight..

    So as you may or may not know since November I’ve been on a weight loss mission and to tone up my body.

    When I started my weight loss journey I said  I wouldn’t post my progress photos until I was happy with my body. I’m still not even 80% happy really, but after seeing Jessica (who already had a great body, that flat stomach turned me green for sure) post her photos it got me thinking. And after collecting all my photos together and comparing them side by side I can see a huge improvement in my body and I’ve been showing them to everyone I can that I feel comfortable showing them to.

    I’m so proud of the weight loss so far and to be honest, I want to show it off to you, even if only to motivate people that are at the lower end of the scales like myself and just don’t have the motivation and if you’re like myself always thinking to yourself “weight loss isharder when there’s less to lose”.

    At my heaviest I hit 10, when I started this I was 9st 10lbs. I’m now down to 8st 10lbs so I’ve definitely lost a stone over 4/5 months.

    Below I will put individual photos separately but I will then do comparison photos side to side at the bottom so you can see how different my body is looking. Completely unedited & half naked, please excuse the bra!

    I’m still not finished working on my dream body, but looking at these photos spurs me on to keep going. I’ll post the next lot of progress photos on Wednesday along with weight & new measurements.

  • New Body Mission – Month Two

    2013-11-25 19.09.08

    Another month down 3 and a half to go until America! It’s 100 days tomorrow until we’re jetting off.

    That puts a lot of fear in me fitness wise I’m not going to lie. This month I feel like I’ve plateaued really, yes I have lost another pound, and at one point I even managed to get down to 8st 11lbs but I really haven’t seen/felt much of a difference in myself and the measurements have proven that there was little to no changes.

    I think my problem this last month was that I got complacent, I started to eat a lot… and I mean a lot of sweets again and that definitely didn’t help and by the end of the month my fitness had slipped too. I managed to go almost all month without any fizzy drinks but by the end of it, the fact I was going out for meals and not knowing what to have to drink that had more flavour than water made the choice difficult.

    Below are the details of where I’m at now. Losing the 1lb was an achievement and I’m proud of that and if I’m to believe my scales are correct, I’ve also lost some body fat & increased muscle, so at least I have that as an achievement.

    My aim for the next month is to kick my ass into gear and get myself to the gym at least 3/4 nights a week, hopefully I can do at least some exercise 5/6 times with one rest day. My gym membership at David Lloyd runs out at the end of the month and I want it to end with a bang, hopefully it’ll all be worth it by this time in April.

    My second aim is to start pre preparing lunches for work, I’ve started to get really fed up with my bacon wraps so I need to get something ready on Sunday evenings at least for up until Wednesdays and then make more ready for Thursday/Friday too. That way it takes the hassle and grossness of using the office kitchen and I can just bung it all in the microwave and eat it when I want.

    So, a few things to get on with, watch this space to see how I get on. do you have any tips for getting complacent and trying to kick start yourself again? If you’re working hard with your fitness then let me know how you’re doing & if you blog about it I’d love it if you sent me a link to it.
