Hey everyone – Sorry it’s been so long since I last posted, I was super busy with an internship in London and then went straight into almost full-time work when I got home and I lost track of everything… my bad.
Anyway, for some strange reason while sitting in a cupboard hiding at work today (I was having a ‘water break’) I began thinking about how off track I have become with my fitness.
Until around March of this year, I was using the gym 4/5 times a week to lift weights or cry while using a treadmill as I hate cardio, but had to stop because drunk Shannon thought it was a good idea to run into a lamppost and injure her leg. Don’t ask.
Even though my leg injury only took around 5-6 weeks to heal enough for me to work out, the end of my uni degree arrived and I was hit with a ton of revision and no motivation and couldn’t bring myself to get back into fitness. On top of this, I was in a relationship which had a negative impact on both my mental and physical health (no, I’m not slating the guy, I’m just being honest). Instead, I decided I’d spend all the hours I could be at the gym looking at insta fit girls and admiring their dedication. Oops…
Here’s the thing, I would love to be one of those girls with masses of motivation, who loves salad and gets up at 5am every morning to do yoga, but I’m not.
From now on, this blog is going to be filled with my attempts to become one of those girls and you’ll be with me every step of the way. I also feel like if I document this journey I’m less likely to run to the nearest McDonald’s I see for a good old veggie burger.
I will be keeping you posted on all the yummy recipes I find which make me hate lettuce that little bit less, as well as posting the workouts I may or may not be using depending on my laziness level and a tonnnn of progress pictures over the years.
To begin with, I’ve set myself the following goals:
- Drink at least 1.5L of water a day (I do this normally, just not on weekends)
- Only 2 takeaways a month – because I’m out nearly all day driving around with work during summer, sometimes until 11pm I find it really easy to pick up some form of fast food on multiple days of the week – this can’t keep happening.
- Workout 2-3 times a week, in any form.
Wish me luck!
