I’m going on holiday in almost a month.
For the past three months I have been saying that I am going to start getting in shape, ready for said holiday.
I have not done a thing.
Actually that’s a lie. I did a 5lbs in 5 days juice diet a few weeks ago – but that made me rebel with food even more as soon as I’d finished it.
As I’ve mentioned before, my relationship with food is a tricky one. I love food. I absolutely love food. I’m not one of these that when they’ve had a taste of nice food, that’s enough. No, I must continue until it’s gone from my sight – and by gone from my sight, I mean in my belly. Not in a drawer or away in a cupboard, I know it’s there.
(And I get grumpy if I have smaller portions…Yeah. I know)
Having said that, I am much better in the summer months. I like salads when the sun’s out; but when it’s not, I like comforting, sugary, bad for you foods. And boy hasn’t this winter been a long one. Bad foods galore!
In way of exercise, I’ve been doing a ‘Yoga for Dummies’ dvd a few times a week, which let’s face it, isn’t exactly taxing on the cardiovascular front and combined with my food intake – hasn’t made the least bit of difference on my waistline.
But today – TODAY – that changes.
The sun is out-ish and it’s starting to get warmer-ish, so this should be all the motivation I need to propel me forward and get me in shape…
As soon as I have finished this blog, I will be off to do my yoga dvd – wait for it – and then when my husband gets home from work, we will be going out for a run together! …Less than two miles so don’t get too over excited there.
And we are planning on doing this as much as we can before our holiday.
I’ll also be looking at healthier meals for us too, however this will be tricky with my husbands reluctance to eat anything other than pizza (going to be giving the cauliflower pizza another go next week I think, don’t tell him I’ve said that..).
I’ll keep you posted on my progress, but if I don’t post about it – expect the worst, I’ve probably given up already.
Wish me luck!
