I've struggled with my weight all of my adult life, the last time I remember being slim was when I was 19, I was clothes shopping with my boyfriend at the time and I remember complaining because I the size 12 skirt that I was trying on was tight and I had to go up to a size 14!!
Good Lord!! How I would love to be a size 14, I think I would give my right arm to be that size again.
After that, the weight just piled on, I blame settling down and contentment. Instead of going out, we stayed in, eating take-aways and enjoying loved-up coupledom.
Now I'm 34, I find myself single and grossly overweight. I really need to get myself in order and lose the weight for good. After reading Katie's blog over at Mummy Daddy and Me Makes Three I was uber-inspired by her my-fitness-mission-february post. So much so I have come up with my own Fitness Mission which I will start on March 1st, new month, new start. I've also come up with some goals that I want to meet and will update my results at the end of March.
- Drink 8 glasses of water every day.
- Drink at least 3 cups of Green Tea every day.
- Incorporate at least 30 minutes of exercise every day.
- Aim to lose 8lbs
I'm keeping my goals short for this month to ease myself in gently.
