    Nothing worth having comes easy- healthy all the way!

    So the new year is upon us and every year my resolution is to diet and lose weight. However this year is different, this year my resolution is to get fit and healthy (no diet!)

    So this year I aim to eat healthy, not try fad diets that worked in the short term in the past, not diets that cut out the things I love to eat and I then I consequently end up gorging on, but a healthy diet that allows me to have the things I want in moderation. I know i am an emotional eater so changing my habits will be a challenge.

    This year I also want to get fit, to get me going to the gym and keep me motivated I am signing up to do a 26 mile bike ride in June. I currently do not go to the gym regularly but I am starting tomorrow and aiming to go 3 times a week (wish me luck)

    I'm sick of being the size I am, I am sick of comparing myself to the size of other girls. It's time for me to stop making excuses and just do it!

    I aim to lose 3.5 stone, as I'm aiming to change to a more healthier lifestyle I'm hoping for a steady 1lb loss a week.

    I'm hoping reporting on how I get on every day will keep me going

    Today started off really well

    Breakfast: 40g shreddies
    Lunch: salad with quorn chicken and reduced fat cheese
    Dinner: sausage and mash (small amount) and veg

    Was going very well until I just are a fun size bag of maltesers (86 cals)

    Did go to the gym for an hour earlier so I hope I haven't undone my hard work.

    Hey Lucy, your food looks good for today and not at all ruined by only 86 cals of maltesers, just think, it could have been a box of them! Well done for going to the gym - I think the bike ride you are going to do is brilliant motivation to maintain or improve your fitness levels.

    It's quite terrifying. I eat a lot of rocket and I always buy it in a bag as it doesn't come whole but it's washed and preserved with chlorine
    Some of it was common sense. I won't be having any low fat ready meals anymore though! Eeekkkk x

    Ooh I'm intrigued! I stopped eating a lot of things by watching shows like that. Hubby won't let me tell him what's in kebabs as he likes them lol
    But I don't eat chicken nuggets and things like that anymore.
    To be fair seeing as most of slimming world is real food it can't really put you off.
    I don't really get the whole "tweaks" thing or even really the scan bran tbh, I know loads do and love it and that's great for them, but I would rather syn a small slice of proper cake than eat a whole low syn cake that tastes disgusting.
    Each to their own though, it's what makes the world go round xx

    Thank you for subscribing

    It was all this stuff about low fat spreads (which I have) that I was shocked about. Do still watch it, it's an eye opener x

    Hiya Lucy, here to subscribe. I'm doing the same as you, ditching the diets and eating healthy, what I want in moderation and exercising more. I'm also working on all my emotional and self esteem issues.

    I didn't see that program, but I'm thinking more and more about ditching low fat processed tat and eating real food in smaller amounts.
