Week Two of Getting Healthy

6th October 2016
Bit of an up and down week this week in terms of both exercise and healthy eating .

Week Two of Getting Healthy


I failed to do any of my home workouts, BUT I joined the gym!

I have not been part of the gym for about six or seven years, so this was a huge step. When I used to go I started at a similar weight to now and managed to lose three stone and kept it off for the two years I was there, so I am trying to remember this is achievable!

I managed one gym session this week (I joined on the Thursday) and I managed to push myself more than I thought I could. I did some interval running and walking on the treadmill, had a few minutes on the rowing machine and enjoyed the cross trainer.

It brought back memories of how determined I was, so I am hoping this really does put me back on the right track for good.

I have signed up to some classes including spinning and circuits, so watch this space for week three!


In terms of food, I got my lovely September box from Degustabox which contained some treats including:

Metcalfe’s Popcorn Thins– these are basically like tasty rice cakes so I’m on a mission to buy a box for the cupboard!

Get Fruity Bars– fruit and oat bars that are brilliant for a light snack when I am craving naughty foods.

Cape Drinks– a blend of Rooibos tea and fruit juices with added vitamins.

Cirio Borlotti Beans– these are great in soups, stews and even in salads. They have lots of fibre in which is always a plus too.

Emily Crisps Crunchy Banana– crisps made of fruit, who would have thought?! I love vegetable crisps so this was something I was keen to try.

Say YES to No Bread Chips– crisps that have no artificial rubbish in them.

Mrs Crimble’s Fusilli- gluten free pasta which is great as a healthy, quick lunch.

Chia Bia Whole and Milled Chia Seed Sachets– milled seeds are great when you don’t want a crunch, and the others are brilliant for things like the energy balls I make- the recipe can be found here.

My food was particularly bad this week with lots of snacking, possibly due to my sleep being so poor and my stress levels being high. Let’s be more positive next week!

    Good luck with the gym. I have never been to a spin class but I have heard they are great for weight loss as you have to put a lot of effort in.
