Day 2 – Summer Shred

Hi Guys! Welcome back!

It’s Sunday 30th April 2017 and I am struggling to believe that today is the last day of April…. I mean…. WHAT? WHEN? HOW? WHY? WHO?

Today’s blog probably won’t be as long as yesterday’s blog, however I do have another beaut-i-ful 7 hour shift at work yep 9am till 3pm… I feel like working on a Sunday should be banned, ya feel me? So yes that does mean I am missing another day of training, boo hoo. I did plan for a walk but I got home and it tipped it down, the fun of living in England.

Meals:

Breakfast; 45g Raspberry Wheaties, 100g Milk.  (209 calories)

Lunch; Left over Egg Fried Rice and Sweet & Sour Pork,  Apple (410 calories)

Snack; Protein Shake and skimmed milk (155 calories)

Snack; Ripple Bar (175 calories)

Dinner; Roast Beef, Roast Potatoes, Gravy, Vegetables and Yorkshire puddings (518 calories)

Ending today on a relevantly good day, didn’t even have a biscuit at work! However I did have the left over Chinese from last night but who wouldn’t? I will be weighing in tomorrow so keep an eye out for the blog tomorrow to see how this week has gone. The cold situation has finally disappeared woo woo! Training tomorrow is going to consist of 30 minutes of cardio and a 30 minute back/shoulders HIIT session.

Anyways, thank you my lovelies for once again reading this post! It means so much to have even one person read it.

See you in the next blog!

Day 1 – ‘Summer Shred Series’

Hello my lovelies!

I am aware I haven’t posted in maybe a week or 2 I’m not sure, this girl been a busy bee. On Monday I started a ‘summer shred’ as holibobs is 9 weeks away! 9 WEEKS! Geez where has time gone?

I decided to set myself the goal of losing 1 stone by the time I go on holiday. As I didn’t want to set the goal to high and then have to deal with the disappointment I’d feel if I didn’t reach that goal.

So to make myself more accountable and actually attempt to stick to this diet including going to the gym at least 3 times a week if not more, I am going to be writing a daily blog series based on health and fitness, writing down everything I have eaten, everything I do in the day. You might be thinking geez every day?! Are you cray? Well to answer that… Yes Yes I am.

Currently my calories are 1500, the aim is to drop these in a couple of weeks, as I have already dropped them by 300 as my maintenance calories is around 1800. This week has been my first week with this diet, I started Monday  at 14 stone, I aim to weigh on Monday however I am not going to determine how my diet goes or how I eat because of a set of numbers on a scale,(another blog post will be up soon about this).

Today, Saturday 29th April 2017, I have been so ill, a cold has stumped me. I had work 10am til 6pm (all day…yep) so exercise wasn’t really on the table.

I had 45g Raspberry Wheaties (girrlll do not miss these), 106g Semi Skimmed Milk for breakfast.

Lunch consisted of Tuna Salad (Tuna, Mayo light, tomato, cucumber, lettuce) and an apple. I had a custard cream during work, and once work had finished for tea I had a chinese. Balance is how you should live not constantly in denial of foods you crave.

Today is probably not the most ideal day to start on as being ill I really struggle to stick to the diet, however, no doubt I will have more of these days, therefore I may as well get used to being completely honest with you and myself. No doubt I will probably finish the rest of the chinese later, and maybe some carmac buttons I have left in the cupboard.

A bit of a long post I know… but if you read it all the way to the end I thank you for your support!

Anyways we shall leave it here and I shall speak with you tomorrow!

Thank you for reading

Shan xoxo

First blog post eek!

Welcome Welcome,

Please take a seat and read on, we have a lot to get through on this post.

If you didn’t already guess I’ve been on a journey, which has now lasted for over a year, and is a continual progress. When I first started my journey in September 2015 I was 15 stone 3 pounds! Yep you read right 15 stone! Now to some that may not seem like a lot and I know there are those out there who have weighed more but for a 17 year old girl at the time it was a lot. The way people would look at me or the way I would feel when I had to squeeze into size 16 clothes too afraid to admit I was really a size 18.

Prom 2014 weighing in at 15 stone 3lb! Now high school was a difficult time for me but I feel like that should be another blog post.

FAST FORWARD 2 YEARS

We are now in 2017 and struggling massively with weight currently weighing 13 stone 10lbs. Which is why I began this blog I need someone to hold me accountable I needed somewhere to talk about my thoughts on particular foods and feelings towards particular dieting trends or my physical fitness side of things.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this first little snippet of my fitness journey!
