So a blog is a personal thing right? So I thought I'd share with you some personal stuff that you may or may not know if you follow me on twitter or are a facebook friend. I have been thinking for the longest time about getting healthy and trying to lose weight. I am not going to use the word 'diet' as in my mind a 'diet' is something temporary. Whatever I do to try and get to a healthy weight will have to be a long-term thing. Heart disease and heart attacks run in my family and I'm so tired of having no energy to do the things I want to do with my little girl.
I started on the 9th January and have so far lost 7lb. This is through a combination of healthy eating, 3 meals a day plus snacks. I have tried to cut out/limit butter, fizzy drinks, white bread and sugar in my tea/coffee. On the exercise front I have been using my wii (I also use this for weigh-in and checking my bmi) and have been swimming once. I was in so much pain the next day after swimming because i think I overdid it a little. Inspite of this, I really have noticed some small differences. I don't have as many headaches, my skin looks a lot clearer and my back doesn't ache as much.
I know it will be a long road ahead but I am determined. My blog will continue with the fatshion slant but I wil be updating on my weight-loss - highs and lows on a regular basis.
