I have always suffered with confidence in myself but as my weight has crept up, my confidence has fallen.
I have used so many excuses for putting it on or not losing it; having a baby; working too much; studying; having another baby; recovering from an operation and many more.
|It'll be tough, but I'm going for it!|
Recently, I've noticed my health deteriorating. Not a great deal, but I've found that I lose my breath quicker than before (which isn't good for an asthmatic!) and my back is hurting more.
I've decided that enough is enough. I need to do something about it. So, I've given myself a year to do it properly.
In just under a year, my little, little brother ( I have 2!) is getting married to a wonderful woman and I am honoured to be one of their bridesmaids.
I want to be able to stand in a dress that I love and feel happy with how I look without wanting to cover myself up.
Not only that, but for myself and my family. I would love to be able to run around with my children more and be generally healthier for them.
With that in mind, I have written my plan down and am going to pin up it so I see it all the time. I found a great printable fitness planner by Jacqui over at Weigh to Maintain, which I can edit to fit around me.Click here to download a copy
I have given myself small targets that are achievable and I'm only going to weigh myself once a month so I'm not preoccupied by it, which I normally do.
I'm starting off by using my workout DvDs. I have bought so many over the years, so now it's time to really use them!
I'm being sensible with my food and although I'll be giving up the rubbish and eating healthily, I'm not going on a fad diet.
I've also taken before and after pictures so I can see my progress and when I'm brave enough I'll post some!
Every month I'll update you on my progress. This time next year, I'm going to be a happier, healthier me!
