Start of the year this Target dress was rising up my butt! It would barely go over my thighs. It was a struggle to get into and since Feb I have tried to loose weight. I followed the 5:2 diet which i used more to control my calorie intake and be more aware of what I was eating. I had days where i would cave to fast food for lunch, which is where i found my biggest downfall. I couldn’t resist the goodness of oil! Then it hit me! WEDDING DRESS shopping. I knew this it. Seeing those arms in the mirror made me realise i needed to get my butt into gear. Back to the 5:2 diet and controlled my calories. I ended up doing 500 calories 3 days a week. I know critics out there all have opions on what’s best for you, but this tactic worked for me.
Then i knew the Maxines challenge was coming up and this was my chance to tone and shape up. Week 1 down, 11 to go. I strive to keep this up as a life change. Long term, weights and cardio twice a week, and to stay on a controlled balanced diet.
