Don’t compare your progress with that of others. We all need our own time to travel our own distance.
I love this. Regardless of your starting point. A year is a good time frame in which to expect the changes you want to see.
This thank you there is no short cuts.
1 month until it’s been 1 year! #transformation
This is important no matter if it’s physical or mental, it takes time to change yourself into what you want to be. Get started and stay committed.
Not because of bad things, just the amount of stuff happening at the moment, job interviews, friends leaving town, family get together and meeting a boy, a boy that could be potentially someone special…
So annoyingly I’ve been neglecting this blog a tad, in comparison, they all take a higher priority to me than loosing weight. I’m gutted I’m cutting this challenge short, but we live and we learn, and at the moment I’m keen on living.
Still feel really groggy, this cold keeps waking, and keeping me up at ridiculous times of the morning, but I’m determined not to let this get the best of me, so I’ll be doing a low impact cardio workout so I don’t become to breathless.

It’s shark week. Which means making such an effort in avoiding binges, to help this I’m letting my self having the odd treat to combat my sweet tooth and keep those binges at bay. Was going to make today my rest day but thought I’d do some sort of light-ish workout and I’m glad I did because if that and a shower I felt a lot better.

Feeling fine and fresh faced today despite getting in at 4am, normally after a night out I’m feeling rather fragile, but once I got some water in me I was good to go! Chuffed that I was able to workout as well. Though I did end up going out again tonight…2 day bender right. I didn’t end up eating much which was a bad move, though I only have 3 drinks which I was proud of! However I’m not feeling so great today to be able to workout, my fault entirely but it was worth it haha, I shall get the right foods in me today along with lots of water.
