So it begins! 13/09/2019

So, I’ve decided to try and get strong and toned. According to my Personal Trainer I need to lose some weight first before we can get cracking on to the strength training.

I attended an assessment where he poked and prodded me and tested my flexibility. I was surprised by how I did though when it came to the sit ups and push ups. The average amount for a healthy individually to be able to do is 26. I managed to do 15 sit ups and 11 push ups and, honestly, I didn’t think I would be able to do one!

We then began forming a work out plan for the next 6 weeks. I’ve done one week already so I’m now down to 5 weeks.

Workout Plan- another one done!

I’m not someone who is constantly worried about what I look like. I’m actually a bit of a Tomboy. As long as I’m comfortable and my hair looks semi-decent I’m happy. But, I wanted to feel healthier. So far I do. I’ve cut back on sugar and I’m eating more protein and veggies, which I’m enjoying. I’ve found experimenting with meal prep and making weirdly healthy meals can be fun! I put Netflix on in the background and start grabbing whatever and just throw it together. Remembering to keep it low in sugar, fats but high in vegetables, greens, fruits and proteins!

I’ve found I sleep better after a workout day and I feel more emotionally stable. I have suffered with depression and anxiety a lot in my life but the increase in hormones with the exercise has lightened the load! I’m just taking it a day at a time and not kicking myself, or getting upset whenever I slip up and have a slice of cake. Let’s face it – my life would be miserable without it!

The gym I go to even has a women’s only area!
