So i havent stepped foot in the gym since April, for no reason other than i became lazy and could not be bothered quite frankly. I am a person that believes in order to go the gym i need to be fully focused and motivated and i was neither of the two so i decided at the time to terminate my membership.
However its a new year, i have decided to restart my membership and smash some of my personal fitness goals. My birthday is in April which is 3 months away, sounds so near and maybe unrealistic but thats when i plan to reach my goal body.
So i am quite happy with my body, but just like most people i have flaws that i would like to work on and tone.i would like to tighten up my stomach and other areas. My main problem area is fat around my hips/sides/waist or as some like to refer to is as “love handles”. They are not extreme but could definetly do with some attention. I also want to get my body fat down to what it was early last year ,which was 20%-22%. As of now its 32.5%.
Current weight, bmi,bodyfat and body fat mass pictured just below.
- To turn fat into muscle
- slim down my waist and hips
- Get body fat down to 20-25%
- I am not trying to loose weight simply tone and build muscle…so my goal weight is 11 stones…of course of muscle and not fat)
- Tone glutes
In the last couple of months its been juice or fizzy drinks which i plan to now cut out. I plan to drink strictly water or smoothies for the next three months. of course if its a special occasion i may have a cheeky alcoholic beverage or two lol.
I am so excited to start drinking smoothies mainly because i can pick and choose exactly what goes inside it. I happened to walk into Wilko also known as wilkinsons and found this blender at a bargain price of £10.i love the colour and the fact it comes with two drinking bottles.
I plan to incorperate a different fitness class a week into my routine. I plan to switch it up so i may try an aerobics class one week and a legs,bums and tums the next. I will do this simply so i enjoy the process and at the same time get to try something new.
I eat way to much junk food mainly crisp and sugary sweets. I am totally in love with the bubblegum flavoured cola bottles, once i eat one all self contol goes out the window. During these 3 months i will eat limited snacks by this i mean criso or buscuits twice a week. I plan to cut sweets out xompletly during this time.
okay everyone who knows me knows i love a cheeky nandos lol and i definetly dont think i can go without it for 3months and i have know intentions of doing so neither. However i do plan to cut down on take aways and limit them to social nights with friends/family/date nights with other half. I will not order food when i am feeling lazy to cook insted i will a cook a high protein, low carb dinner.
I am doing this strictly for me !! I will post progress pictures at the end of every month.
