How I keep motivated!

So NYD 2017 I set myself a goal of losing 5 stone by 2018, I can proudly say I am now 2 stone in with 3 to go! Its been a long ride, with the diet I’m on, my weight can go up and down very easily. Being on a very low calorie diet, I put myself in to a state of ketosis, so when I do eat food, I end up with a lot of water retention. I have only researched this recently as I was wondering why the hell I put on 6lbs in 24 hours after a small plate of party food. Apparantly its something to do with sodium and salt intake (or something or other)… 

Anyway… As I have stuck to the exersize and dieting, I have noticed results…looking in the mirror, I’m seeing smaller hips and a smaller waist, my legs and bum are more defined than the wobbly state they were in before, and my arms are now more in shape than looking like a couple of aubergines attached to my body. This is what keeps me going!
The measurements, rather than the weight. I noticed my weightloss had stopped, and I decided to measure instead, to find I had lost 7 INCHES!! This felt awesome, to know that I have been building the muscle and losing the fat, when I thought I was at a standstill with it all just makes you keep going. 
 

So 4 months in, I would say I have dropped 2 dress sizes, lost 2 stone and 7.5 inches down all over. 
I’ll go over my routine, and what I eat etc again, so if you want to do the same, you can!

I have now tweaked my diet, so I only eat and snack between 10am and 6pm, and out of these hours I fast. 


7am-10am
– I would have drank 1 litre of water

10am – Forza Shake It Slim time! (vanillas my favourite!) followed by 250mls water. 

11am – Forza T5 Super Strength  for a pre workout boost! 

In this time, I aim to burn 500 calories on the cross trainer, this used to take me 54 minutes, and now only takes me 34 minutes, which is a huge improvement. I then do 3 sets of 10 squats with my barbell, followed by some arm exercises and 3 sets of 60 second planking to target my ab area.
1pm – 2pm – I’ll be guzzling that water again (1litre)
3pm – Forza Shake it Slim time again… 
4pm – 5pm – Another litre of water goes down! 
6pm – A 250 calorie meal, so this will be soup, cod or chicken breast as I’m a fussy eater… I’ll mix this with my favourite vegetables to get as many nutrients as I can.

Losing Lb’s and Loving Life 

 

So before asking you guys for your favourite fitness tips, I’m going to enlighten you in the past week of my changing life…
So I recently started having a crazy week of feeling motivated again after falling off the fitness wagon. I’ve made a few changes in my diet, my excersize regime and my life in general. I woke up on Monday (now Thursday) thinking, I’m feeling amazing today, time to change my lifestyle. And since then, I’ve lost 5lbs, yes..5lbs in just 4 days! No special pills taken, no detoxing teas, just a healthy diet and excersize.
I’ve started running for 1 hour each night, and eating a regular 5 meals per day, 2 of which are Ultraslim Chocolate Shakes from Tesco, with snacks like apples and cheesestrings in between.

Out of Slimfast, Atkins and Cambridge diet Shakes, Ultraslim are by far my favourites, and no, this isn’t a sponsored post..I’m just telling you what I love about the foods in my diet. If you have a sweet tooth, and don’t like the bland taste of regular Shakes, these sweet Shakes are for you. I have mine with Rude Health Organic Gluten free Almond Milk…The best!!

And that’s it, that’s how I’ve shed 5lbs in my first 4 days..

Now all I need to know is, how on earth do I make my butt perky without the squats, I want YOUR tips on some different butt workouts…
