Mission Healthy Eating/ Loose Weight

For a while now I’ve been a little unhappy about my weight. Since starting uni in September I’ve found I’ve put on a bit of weight, and that my eating habits have got worse. I’ve also started drinking a lot more than I used to, and frequently have the odd cheeky take away. I’ve noticed that a lot of the time instead of having proper meals I’ll just snack on things instead. Its got to the point where I’ve noticed some of my old clothes I haven’t worn in a while are just that tiny bit too tight. 

I’ve tried diet and exercise before, but can never find a diet I stick to. About a year ago I used to go to the gym around 4 times a week, and then it dropped down to once a week, then to none at all. I always thought ‘I’ll start again tomorrow’, but it just never happens.

Well I’ve decided to give it a try all over again, and I plan on sticking to it. I’ve rejoined my local gym and I start there again on Wednesday, and I plan on going around 3 or 4 times a week at least. Instead of taking up a crash diet I’m going to change things about my eating habits so hopefully I’ll stick to them! 

Here’s what I plan on doing – 

  • Drink plenty of water, around 1.5 – 2 litres a day
  • Cut out suger in my tea
  • Cut out fast food
  • Make sure I always have a good breakfast
  • Cut out fast food
  • Go to the gym at least 3 times a week
  • Walk more
  • Turn bad snacking into good snacking (e.g. an apple instead of crisps!)

I think these are changes I can do, and they don’t seem to impossible! I’m not going to completely cut out crisps, chocolate and other things I enjoy, I’m just not going to eat them as much, and try to eat fruit instead! 

Fingers crossed I’ll stick to this!

    Good luck! I'm finding it really hard at the moment too, I lost 3 stone a while ago but then put it all back on when I was pregnant with my second son 🙁 I do alright for a few weeks and then lose my motivation again. Think I need a kick up the bum!Hx

    I'm the same, I go through phases of healthy eating and being a gym bunny and then just give it all up. I'm hoping to change that! Good luck to you too! 🙂 xxx
