Getting Started - 4 Week Fitness Challenge

Hey girls,

If you are new to my blog or new to weigh loss and fitness then todays blog post might help.

I wanted to share some tips when getting started. The thing that got me started on my weight loss was wanting to look and feel good for summer. Now that summer is here I am so happy I started in January. If you have decided that tomorrow is the start for you then please stick at it.

The three things you need to remember when starting to lose weight is, organisation & preparation is key, stick with the plan, and it will all be worth it in the end.

The first couple of weeks of my Slimming World journey where not always plan sailing. I had craving, I was fed up with salad and I was ALWAYS hungry! The more the weeks went on my stomach got smaller and I very rarely felt hungry. I keep full on free food and I changed my meals around so I wasn't always having salad. I find now that being more adventurous and trying new dishes really helps and excites me when cooking.

Tomorrow is the start of my 4 week challenge and I am starting off with a 5k run. If you are new to this start out light. I always run and walk as I haven't built up my running ability just yet. Rome wasn't built in a day and remember fitness takes time. I am then going to do a quick ab and squat session before getting ready for work.

I am going to change up my morning exercises and will be doing some personal training with Damy and spin classes too.

Remember you have to start somewhere and you have to really want it. You need to work hard, stay focused and have self discipline. And of course you need to treat yourself every now and again. Just not every day like you usually would.

I hope this helps and I cant wait to see the #FacesByGrace4WeekChallenge pictures.

  8. Thanks for sharing you fitness journey with all of us. Like you, I did a diet to jump start my weight loss program and it’s called the 3 day military diet. You’re right, diets can be such a bore especially if you’re going to eat the same kinds of food everday. What I liked about the 3 day military diet is that it’s only for short term use so you won’t get bored. My sister’s wedding is coming up in 2 weeks so I tried the diet and lost around 6 pounds. I plan to do the diet again next week to continue my weight loss. Wish me luck! If you want to take a look at the diet, here’s a great resource page. You can even make a review of it for your readers like me
