Hey guys hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are having a good beginning to the new year. Now that the festive season is out of the way I have returned to working out and eating better. So with my eating I chose to eat healthier and pick better options of what to eat. It’s quite difficult as I have a family and I do not want to have two separate shopping lists as it could because quite expensive,but I have been able to find groceries that the whole family can enjoy and is good for us all as well as fulfill my eating requirements.

The other food I have tried to eat is smoothies, and for the life in me I can not consume them!. I have tried twice to drink them but they just do not come out as I want them to. I know they are good for you and they can help in one’s journey to healthy eating. My first issue is that they have bits in them, now this might sound childish but I can’t stand having seeds in my smoothie it’s just not tasty for me and it means I have to chew them which I don’t like the taste.
The other issue is that its cold. I for one have sensitive teeth and can’t really drink or eat cold stuff, then there is the issue of drinking a smoothie in winter! like who wants to do that? ( I know some like them in winter lol), in winter am already cold so to drink a cold smoothie just doesn’t make sense to me. So that’s my dilemma with smoothies. I would like to find one which is both warm and good for you so please if you know any leave your suggestions in the comment section below.

So last the last two years I have had gym memberships as I felt going to an actual gym would motivate me to go and work out which it did in the beginning as in the beginning I was your all excited to begin this new journey and change your my fitness. The first gym I went to was quite expensive but I stayed with them for the year as the contractor was for a a year so when it was up I left them. Then I went to this other one which was a lot cheaper and with this one I got my routine down and set certain days to go and work out. I stuck to my routine until I went on holiday then I kinda of took a break from it during the summer months. My year contract was coming to an end and i had not used it for a while and I was paying for it so I decided to cancel it.
Then I had an idea instead of going into a another year contract, why can’t I buy some weights and work out at home? and that is exactly what I have done.

The above weights are exactly similar to the ones I have bought and I use them in conjunction with a Xbox workout CD called Your shape -Fitness evolved 2012 which I really think is one of the best if not the best CD workout I have ever used. I use it to do the HIIT workout which I am doing for the very first time but I have heard it’s a lot better than slaving in the gym doing cardio for an hour when you can get it don’t in 7 minutes!!. The fact I can feel the aches in my body is a sign that its doing something lol. I use the weights with a workout plan my fitness instructor brother-in-law gave me which I used throughout last summer. He broke it down to be done in three days which each focus on a different part of your body so legs, arms and stomach.
So for now I am going to workout from home which I hope I will stick to and try to eat foods that are good for my body ( obviously we have to have a cheat day lol ;-)) I will try and update you all on how its going.
Love Me X
