I have never been over a size 10 so I know many people would be thinking I'm silly to worry about my body but everybody has a right to have body hiccups.. Mine being my hips!
So my friend and I both signed up to the gym and decided that we would both keep each other motivated and push one another as there has been many tried and failed attempts at a new healthy lifestyle before, and I am pleased to say we are still keeping at it 5 months later!
What did I change?
- Eat more fruit and veg - Honestly I cannot stress how much better I felt, energy and wellbeing wise when I switched the biscuits and crisps for a more healthier option.
- Exercised 3-4 times a week - Find ways to make it fun! We mixed our gym sessions up with some classes as well. ZUMBA was a great way to burn calories and you're so busy having fun you don't realise how quick the time goes! I also recommended doing a mix of cardio and toning exercises.
- Take-Away food - I was a definite fast food junkie but I forced myself to resist for the greater good - although a treat every so often wasn't a bad thing.
