I have been less than happy with my body shape and current weight of late. I’m sure many of you know the feeling. Winter comfort food and the incredibly cold and frosty days mean delicious and warm food choices with over friendly calories, which have made their way straight to my stomach, thighs and hips…and yes arms too…oh who am I kidding – you can quite clearly see my face being a bit cheekier.
I have tried dieting, made goals, claimed that I was going to start exercising more often in the past and yes you guessed it – I failed miserably at it. Why? I really don’t know. Perhaps it’s got something to do with motivation, time and a number of other factors, but I feel like all of these are just lame excuses.
Is this post boring you yet? I hope not because I really want to get some input from you guys about what’s worked for you, what hasn’t and what motivates you to get into shape?
Needless to say, I haven’t given up yet. I’ll put up before and after pictures when I’m brave enough and when I feel like I’ve achieved a body image I’m happy with.
With New Zealand Fashion Week coming up in September, I’m hoping to get into shape before then. I don’t want to go out shopping for snazzy outfits that are not going to look anything short of amazing. So, come Wednesday morning – I am going to slap myself awake and go to boot-camp. I’ll keep you posted with food choices, dietary changes and exercise regimes…I’m determined that this time it’s going to be a sticking point and an actual lifestyle change.
I’ve actually been really good with my food choices over the weekend up to today – so I’m quite determined to stick to it (this time).
Can’t wait to let you guys know how the first gruelling session goes!
