My Fitness Journey

”  

Hi Ladies, 

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and are enjoying your Sunday evening. I spent my day doing a spring clean, the most time being spent sorting out my vanity room… It was in serious need of a good clean and had a lot of organising to be done. It took me the guts of 3 hours to get it sorted but I’m as happy as Larry now sitting down now at my desk doing my blog post 🙂 

Last week I shared a snap of my progress since starting out with Bodynamics. I made the much needed decision to finally change my lifestyle last June (June 2014) and decided to join Bodynamics. My eating habits were literally out of control, I was forever eating junk and my body was beginning to show it, and it was starting to get to me so I signed up for a 6 week body transformation. You can read all about my first 6 week transformation by Clicking Here

Below is a progress snap : the left is the day I started with Bodynamics in June 2014, and the right is a snap of me last week…. 

Left – June 2014 Right : April 2015

After sharing this snap there were a few comments posted under it that really got to me. Now only a couple, most were so lovely which they generally do be on my page, and I’m really blessed that way, but the negative ones got under my skin because one person was trying to say that I was a fake, and that it wasn’t me in the picture and why was I hiding my face ect… There is one thing I am NOT, and that’s a fake. What you see is what you get, no BS, and I couldn’t just ignore the comments. I had to literally strip off again and take a snap with my face showing to prove it was me. I have worked so hard to get my body to where it is today and it’s very very irritating for somebody to assume that my results are not real. I didn’t take my clothes off and take a snap of my progress to look for attention, I posted it because I am proud of what I have achieved so far and my blog is all about inspiring people, and I wanted to show people that it can be done and hopefully give somebody the push the need to make the change I did, because if I can do it, so can so many other. I also wanted to show and thank my trainer for helping me get to where I am today, he deserves a medal in my opinion. He’s thought me how to live a healthier life aswel as completely change my mindset. Collie, I’ve said it 100% times…. You’re awesome. Thank You!! I’m sure he must get more texts off me than he does off his own girlfriend hahaha 🙂 

  

So let’s get to it. I asked you all if you would like me to share my weeks food diary and workouts and I got great feedback so here we are (finally) getting to the purpose of this whole blog post haha!!! You will see from my diet that 90% of the time I am strict, but I also have times where I do have goodies. It does make me feel guilty (ish) now but I also have to be realistic and have the odd treat here and there. I do try to not do it often though… You will also see that I tend to only eat carbs after a workout. 

I done my weekly shop on Tuesday Morning and here is my shopping list :
