Fatness to Fitness!!
Well, this is my second diary here... And hopefully a lasting on! Tried numerous approaches to weight loss and now I'm just focusing on the simple mantra of calories in vs calories out! Anything goes kinda thing! I love the gym, it's the food I fail epically on! So I'm going to make myself accountable WHATEVER I eat, as I have a nasty habit of not recording naughty days (if I did maybe I could work to reset the balance!)
Got some big stuff coming up soon... Bridesmaid dress fitting in 4 weeks, bridesmaid in 7 weeks! I am currently around the 15stone Mark and wanting to try and get a good few lbs off before the new year and continue on a healthy lifestyle into 2013. will record all food and workouts here
Hope everyone's having a great weekend xx
Today is an exercise rest day for me ahead of tomorrows official measure in. I will weigh myself but I try to now ignore that number as I'm gonna be putting in a lot at the gym and that's when it all gets a bit messed up! So inches over lbs! Going for a family Sunday dinner now... Yum.
Also have my fit test on Insanity tomorrow... Bit the bullet and I'm sure I will be in pain come Tuesday!!
Today my calories have been a little too low - due to being extremely busy- I have 675 so far but am going to have a graze box (love those things!!) to make up a few! Today I got in 30 minutes of circuit training, tomorrow is a lifting day (chest n back) followed by 30 minutes cardio (more if I can manage it as I've been fighting off a nasty cough)
Hope everyone's having a good healthy week so far xx
Another good day although too much caffeine! Have reached a nice 1100 calories... Including tea which is later. Gym is 8.30pm then midnight showing of breaking Dawn part 2 lol! Still NEED to get Insanity workouts sorted! Keep putting it off as I know it will probably damn near kill me!!! 6 weeks n 2 days exactly until I gotta feel ok in my own skin, its gotta get started tomorrow morning before work at the latest. Will post results as I go - been looking forward to trying it for aggesss xx
Totally knackered today, but movie was actually work it! its a 9 til 730 day today, followed by a 8 til 9 gym then a saturday shift at work also. I will be damned if i give in though. Breakfast was just a latte (well not just- 185 cals of it!) and lunch will be on the go but aslong its kept under 1200 with exercise im happy. I would usually eat more when exercising BUT got a fast approaching deadline haha.
Happy friday everyone
1142 calories for today, happy with that. Did 40 mins strength training at gym (chest n back) and still no insanity! Think im putting it off on purpose now lol! Did a full health inventory today, minus inches which is tomorrows job. Took readings of bodyfat, muscle mass, weight and viseral fat. Half of the results i was happy with as a startinh point- my visceral fat is normal n healthy, my muscle mass good. Bodyfat and weight not so great at all! BMI i totally ignore anyway as its aload of rubbish, in my opinion anyway.
Hope everyone has had a happy healthy day xx
After a busy day I've totted up my calories to 393 so far... So a few more needed! Just got home and sooo cold, gym is only open for another 90 minutes so do I be lazy now and have to do insanity later when I leave it that bit too long to go workout or do I get my ass back out in the cold? To be honest, I would much rather be deciding between Indian or pizza take out menus lol! But that's not an option... Tomorrow is a treat meal (within daily cal allowed) so will save it up! Xx
insanity fit test done!!! Some things i was disappointed on, but some very hapoy with (low obliques and power knees) and others baffled i could 3 reps as i thought it impossible at this stage (push up jacks).Feel better now its done but i am dripping with sweat (tmi i know sorry!). So i guess now im commited to 60 days juh?
will post my fit test results after my evening meal xx
Ended the day on 1248 calories and did i need them! lovely 4 egg (i know 4 right lol) omellette and a big glass of water.
Woke up feeling very very hungry today! But as i sunday lunch with family in just over 2 will be factoring in a very light breakfast. No planned exercise until this evening xx
todays calories are just over 1200 already with no exercise (except a game of basketball in park with my family, if that counts)
feel OK about having a bit of a treat today aslong as i power through both my workouts tomorrow (insanity and weights) i will not let it put me on a downer (which leads to a binge)
hope everyone has had a great weekend xx
Had a bit of a naughty day today!its around 20 days until my fitting so have decided to give myself a bit of a quick start using my cambridge products i didnt finish xx

It's TOTM at the moment so no weighing or measuring until it's over as I do get extremely bloated. Insanity hasn't took off way I hoped,..
