Hiiiii everyone 🙋
Hope you have all had a fantastic week and are enjoying your weekend.
Its been a tough one for me this week. I decided to kick start this healthy eating with all the motivation I have. I’m so unhappy with not only how my body looks right now but also how I feel. I know I’ve had a baby and I know my body will never be the same again and I don’t want it to be. I want it to be BETTER and I am more motivated than ever! What women’s bodies going through during pregnancy and labour is just absolutely incredible and I feel so unbelievably blessed to have experienced it all. Something I hope to experience a few more times throughout my lifetime. But, I want to be healthy AND happy.
While I was pregnant I didn’t really watch what I ate and I didn’t really find it important to monitor my weight gain. The next time I’m pregnant I want that to be different. I want to stay healthy so that it’ll be easier to get back into shape once the baby comes. I need to completely change my lifestyle.
I tried out a new gym class, it just about killed me. I thought I was going to vomit towards the end and that shows me more than anything how unhealthy I am. That is going to change. I’m planning on joining the gym and going to the different classes, they have a crèche there which is perfect to be able to exercise with my little baba as that is often the problem, finding time. I can’t use that as an excuse now.
I bought this AMAZING book. The Bikini Body 28-Day Healthy Eating & Lifestyle Guide by Kayla Itsines, it’s currently half price on Amazon so grab yourself a bargain! I promise you won’t regret it. I’ve started following her on insta, I suggest you do the same because she is super positive and motivating. Everyone needs a little bit of that when trying to get into shape. I LOVE food so trying out lots of new exciting recipes is getting me all excited aaaand the hubby is enjoying them too… win win!
A few of my faves so far have been:
Avacado and feta egg smash
Fish and beetroot risotto
So so delicious and healthy, you really cannot beat that! I’m excited about getting my body into a shape that I’m happy with and I’m excited to bring you all on that journey with me.
