About Me

I am a 33 year old mum of two who has spent her entire teenage and adult life struggling with her weight. I am not going to struggle with it anymore. I am in charge!

I nearly forgot

I almost forgot to come and check in with how the day has gone. Fortunately I didn't forget to eat well and do my exercise today.

Planning all of this weeks meals and snacks has worked really well for me so far. Tomorrow is going to be super busy so I know I am going to appreciate it then.

I did level 1 of shred today and before I started I was thinking how good my legs felt after two days in a row of interval running. I got to the end of level 1 and was feeling it a bit but still had some energy left and felt really good. So I decided to do level 2 as well. Ha ha. It wasn't really happening so I did the first circuit and then the cool down. I was really pleased though when I thought back to how I felt after just the warm up of level 1 the first time I did 30 day shred.

Tomorrow I have planned as a day off from exercise. We are too busy for me to realistically fit it in and I want to make sure I get rest days in now I am doing so much more exercise than ever before!

I am one of those scale junkies who has to weigh everyday. I know some people say that isn't good but I find it really keeps me accountable. So far this week my re-committing to my plan is working well for me. I only log my weight on a Monday for it to mean anything but so far so good.

Now I have to go and finish getting ready for our super busy Thursday and preparing things for Friday that I won't have time to get ready tomorrow. After that I plan to collapse into bed with a book then sleep.


  1. I am the same with weighing myself everyday! I'm not sure it's a good thing either but I just can't resist it! However I only count Monday's Weight watchers weigh in. I really enjoy reading your blog :)

  2. I always say do what works for you. if weighing every day works...so much the better. looks like you are doing great!
