2015 Challenges

So its Day 11 of 2015. Happy New Year!

I took a break over Christmas as it was manic here but also – not meaning to offend any of you but I couldn’t read anymore about trees, elves, presents etc. I was boring myself with it and refused to do the same to you!

So now the new years here, I have a family wedding to look forward to in May and refuse to be the fat relative. So what are you going to do about it?! I hear you cry.

So far so good, I have completed 2 fast days today on the 5:2 diet. It is a tough one to get into the mindset of this as on 2 days of the week you only have 500 calories which basically means you only have dinner. The longer you fast for the better the benefits are. I did this shortly after having Flo (who is now 15 months) and lost a good 1 stone 1/2. Now I haven’t put it all back on but I would feel amazing if I lost 2 stone before May so that’s the aim. Slow and steady 2 lbs a week with the hope it will come off and stay off.

I’ve also jumped on a January band wagon – no, not dry January – are you crazy?! A glass of wine is the only thing that keeps me sane and that I treat myself to once the kiddie winks have gone to bed. I’m doing the 30 day ab and squat challenge. Day 8 is the toughest so far and I was super glad of the rest day on Day 9.

Lastly I’ve booked into Race for Life in Victoria Park in London this June for a 10k. Just praying I can get some Physio on my broken toe so I can actually get some running in again.

So watch this space ! – I intend to be a skinny minnie by summer!

What challenges have you set your self in 2015?

  1. Oh wow – you have some great challenges there!! The ab and squat challenge is hard core – I do not envy you… I try to do 10 – 20 squats along with all my other daily exercise and that is my limit, I can always hear my knees cracking (old bones!)! Will be great to keep up to date with your progress! Thank you for linking up to Weight Loss Wednesday and look forward to seeing you again on Wednesday! 🙂 Sim xx

  2. Oooh…. another blogger on the 5:2…. I’ve just started this way of life n the 1st, so now half way through my 2nd week…. I must admit it, I love it on the 5 days but hate it on the 2 lol, but love the feeling the day after the fasts! I have between 3-4 stone to loose, hopefully by November for our trip to Florida. I will be popping by to see how you get on! Good luck! #weightlosswednesday
