Week 1 of get fitter/healthier

Hey guys. 

So this has been a very quick week. Like the countdown to a holiday well I’m counting down going back to work. 🙂 I might feel nervous and it will be weird. But I am really looking forward to it. 

This week, I opted for a few changes to the way I’ve been doing things. I kicked my butt off the couch for one. And started to walk. It takes around 15 mins to my local village, so walking there and back has been a good start. I’ve done it 6 out of 7 days. 

I changed some of my cups of coffee for herbal tea, Chamomile an hour before bed, and green tea after dinner I’m actually surprised at the effect this has had on me, because I’ve felt much more alert. I do still need the ‘coffee’ in the mornings or by 2pm I am just gasping for one. But the fact that I feel more energised is great. 

I am not focussing on the weight loss side of things, but I can report that I have lost a good few pounds. Considering all I have done is walk everyday, I think that getting back to work should alleviate the rest of the excess I am now carrying. But I do want it to go further than that I need to shift it all off this year. 

The craziest thing I’ve done, is I bought some silly sweat suit from a pound shop. It’s kinda like dressing up in rain gear, then going running. But, after 5 mins on my twister and then 10 more mins step exercising, I really was sweating, so maybe that will be a good thing. 


No, there will defo not be any pictures of the big girl in a silly sweat suit. 


I am pushing ED to the back of my head, with the way I am tackling things I am not listening to him, even though he is there. Nagging. Yes, I am the heaviest I’ve been since 2000 when I bust my knee in, but I CAN deal with this. I WILL not starve myself, or go backwards. I am a healthier person, inside and out, and you can go ShooT Yourself….. right? Right! 

All in all, positive result, so I am really happy. 🙂


I am going to write my ‘editing/writing post’ later,  because I want to keep the two things separate. So, catch you laters.
