I made it

Finally got to the point where the 30 day shred feels easier, when i say easier, i don’t actually mean it as ‘easy,’ far from it, but i could actually get through the 20minutes with only one 5 second break. Normally have to have about 4 stops!

So this is day 4 of the dvd, does that mean in the morning i may wake up without muscle pain? Please let it be.

I am doing level at the moment, last time i got to level 2, but quit around 14/15 days into it, just lost the routine of it all with hubby being back, MY routine was gone. Once i can do level 1 all through without stopping for a couple of days onto level 2 i go.

‘I can do this, I can do this..’


Day 1 of diet

Is it bedtime yet?

I find dieting so hard, my willpower is weak.

So i decided to go for weight watchers diet as i’ve heard good about it. Signed up yesterday to see what it was about and it all got too much to take in, so i asked some friends on it, and now seems easier to follow.

So far i have had a weetabix for breakfast and am currently eating an orange, although i am not enjoying it too much as i have just brushed my teeth, not the best thing to eat after doing  that.

I have yet to write out  my weekly planner for food, but will be doing it soon as need to sort out food for tea. Will be trying poached egg for dinner ( yes that’s right i have never actually tried one before), hoping it isn’t too hard to make. Think i will buy a pan specifically for poaching eggs to make it easier lol.

Will be starting the 30 day shred dvd tonight too, not looking forward to the leg pain tomorrow!

So welcome to my diet journey.

New Year..New me..New new year resolution!

So at this time of everyone is talking about it. New Year Resolutions. I seem to have a theme with mine since having children, every year it’s ‘Diet and lose weight, i will stick to it this time.’ So what’s it this year? Yep the same as the past 6years. I am joing Weight Watchers on the 2nd and starting the diet the next day. I will the  be doing my 30 day shred dvd most nights and trying to walk more to Tesco, seen as it is just round the corner! Lazy, i know! My excuse was the fact there is a big hill to it, go down it on way there, but way back is a killer going up with all your shopping.

So what New Year Resolution do you have? Have you even thought about it yet?


It’s such an awful word to hear or say. Why can’t our bodies just keep us skinny whatever we eat? It would be so much easier!

So my diet starts in the New Year. You may remember a post on the dvd workout ’30 day shred’ how i started that and was determined to carry it on? Yes, well that kind of went out the window. I done the first day. Yep that’s right i lasted a blooming day! Ha! I am looking at joining Weight Watchers in the New Year, and starting up the exercise dvd again, and i will stick to it!

Since having kids i have found it so hard to keep to diets. I moan i am fat, next minute i am sat down eating crisps and chocolate. It is just too hard to stick to it.

I am going to try my hardest in the New Year, i promise!

My downfall is crisps, more than chocolate. I love crisps! I don’t drink much alcohol in the month so atleast i won’t have that to cut down from, that is one good thing. Although i have just bought a bottle of wine, but it is for New Year celebrations, so it’s forgiven.

Maybe i should put back my diet starting 2nd Jan instead of 1st? Hangovers don’t accept healthy food, need big fat greasy breakfast and a bag of crisps to try help me feel better, hmmm.

Day 1 of 30 day shred complete

So i stuck to my word and started the  30 day shred last night. Got the dvd working, but no sound, which was annoying so i put my music on from my phone instead.

Got through the first lot of 3 sessions and was ready to finish, once it got onto the 2nd i thought, great this must be the last because i can bearly breath and my legs are shaking. Noooo there is a 3rd session!! I more or less collapsed after the last one. Forgot how hard this dvd is! Must try and sort out the sound for tonights session, quite annoying to have to keep checking tv to make sure the next exercise hasn’t started.

I am in pain today. Mostly the legs, i can feel everytime i use the muscles in them. Stairs are my worst nightmare at the moment! If i remember rightly tomorrow is a little better, please let that be true!

My healthier eating also starts today too. I wish dieting was fun too, but i get so bored of it after a while (a day or 2!).
