I failed to do any of my home workouts, BUT I joined the gym!
I have not been part of the gym for about six or seven years, so this was a huge step. When I used to go I started at a similar weight to now and managed to lose three stone and kept it off for the two years I was there, so I am trying to remember this is achievable!
I managed one gym session this week (I joined on the Thursday) and I managed to push myself more than I thought I could. I did some interval running and walking on the treadmill, had a few minutes on the rowing machine and enjoyed the cross trainer.
It brought back memories of how determined I was, so I am hoping this really does put me back on the right track for good.
I have signed up to some classes including spinning and circuits, so watch this space for week three!
In terms of food, I got my lovely September box from Degustabox which contained some treats including:
Metcalfe's Popcorn Thins- these are basically like tasty rice cakes so I'm on a mission to buy a box for the cupboard!
Get Fruity Bars- fruit and oat bars that are brilliant for a light snack when I am craving naughty foods.
Cape Drinks- a blend of Rooibos tea and fruit juices with added vitamins.
Cirio Borlotti Beans- these are great in soups, stews and even in salads. They have lots of fibre in which is always a plus too.
Emily Crisps Crunchy Banana- crisps made of fruit, who would have thought?! I love vegetable crisps so this was something I was keen to try.
Say YES to No Bread Chips- crisps that have no artificial rubbish in them.
Mrs Crimble's Fusilli- gluten free pasta which is great as a healthy, quick lunch.
Chia Bia Whole and Milled Chia Seed Sachets- milled seeds are great when you don't want a crunch, and the others are brilliant for things like the energy balls I make- the recipe can be found here.
