Week four is all done! I’m a third of the way through my fitness challenge and I can’t see myself ever going back to my old lifestyle. If you are new to my blog and am wondering what the heck I’m talking about, check out the fitness challenge I set myself here http://emmashappylittleworld.com/2015/08/24/fitness-challenge/ I’m a very happy, full of energy girlie.
I am still eating clean and surprisingly I still haven’t eaten any meat. Although it was never a conscious decision to cut meat out of my diet it’s one I now feel rather passionate about. I honestly can not imagine ever eating meat again, I’m less tired and feel a lot less sluggish after each meal. My biggest let down is not drinking enough water, I don’t really drink a lot of anything as I just forget to drink.
One of my goals last week for this week was to allow myself one treat, which I did in the form of a soya hot chocolate with whipped cream and it was more delicious than I ever remembered.
Glorious, Glorious exercise
I have been the gym six times this week, even treating myself to an evening in the stream and sauna rooms. I’m really enjoying the gym, I no longer feel self conscious being there, I just go in knowing I’m going to work hard. Within the week I’ve also been swimming for the first time in about ten years. Although I couldn’t swim for very long I know that if I keep at it I will build up my swimming stamina. I’m still building up my confidence to try one of the classes at the gym, I really want to try a spin class but am worried I wont be able to do it!
As always I have enjoyed long walks with my handsome chap and after a two hour walk in Wellington boots through mud, my legs definitely feel like they have had a workout.
Goals for week five!
- DRINK MORE WATER
- Take a spin class
- Allow myself a treat
- Go swimming three times
- DON’T GIVE UP!
Those glorious feelings
I feel amazing, my scales say I’ve lost 6lbs in the first four weeks and a whole dress size. Most of all I am starting to feel better about myself and I am a lot more confidence. Cause I would like my scales to say I’ve lost a little more but I’m trying my hardest not to concentrate on the numbers.
Me and Jamie announced our engagement last week, you can read about our exciting news here http://emmashappylittleworld.com/2015/12/03/christmas-trees-diamond-rings/ so now my fitness has taken on a new direction, now like every bride to be I want to look nice on my happy day.
BRING ON WEEK FIVE!!!
