My New Years resolutions were to lose weight! I only want to lose 1 stone, maybe a stone and a half max and also tone up my tummy muscles a bit.
My plan was to eat better and start exercising so I joined slimming world at the beginning of January and I have to say I'm loving it! So far I've lost 6lb and at weigh in on Friday I'm hoping for another 1lb loss so I can get my 1/2 a stone award certificate. I love going to the meeting as they are so helpful and really motivate me for the week ahead!
This week I've also joined the gym and plan to go 3 times a week for an hour each time. I had my induction last Friday and went for an hour on Monday and also did a spinning class this morning followed by an hour in the gym so all going well. I am going again Friday and have also booked a Pilates class. Lexie has been going into the crèche at the leisure centre where the gym is and seems to settle fine for the hour she there and the 2 ladies who work there are lovely.
I'm hoping the exercise doesn't have a negative effect on my weight as I've heard some people gain due to muscle gain when they begin exercising!
I have definitely noticed a change in my mood and I feel generally more energetic and happier within myself and I actually feel rather proud that I've done it all on my own (no moral support from friends etc...) but I have to say it was nerve wrecking but I did it and the worst bit is over now!
Onwards and upwards from here on!!
