Weeky Weigh In #1 (1)

My February challenge was to improve my health and fitness. While I did set the wheels in motion, they started moving very slowly, and I didn’t actually achieve a lot! I’ve decided to keep the weekly posts going, in the hope that posting here will give me some form of accountability and keep me going! I’ve called this Week 1 because I feel like I’m starting over, really. February was something of a false start.


Goal for this week

My goal for this week is to cut back on fizzy drinks and replace them with water. I feel like I’m stuck in some sort of rut with my fizzy drink consumption, and besides being shockingly bad for me, it’s costing me a fortune!

Exercise plans

My plan is to exercise three times this week.
I have loads of exercise dvds, and there are hundreds more on YouTube if I get bored. No excuses!
Besides this, I need to get up off my bum and go to the gym around the corner to enquire about membership. If it really is only £15 a month then I can use the money I save by not drinking Niagara Falls in Coca Cola every month to pay for it.

Food/Drink Plans

I want to concentrate on eating breakfast this week. I think by not eating breakfast I’m starting the day in the wrong way, and also setting a bad example to S. I do struggle with breakfast ideas though, so if anyone has any suggestions please do shout!

Good luck with your restart. I have found blogging about my journey has kept me on track, or on my journey longer then it would have lasted usually. #bloggingtojogging

I heard a conversation on Radio 2 the other week in which the guest explained that skipping breakfast isn’t necessarily a bad thing, so if breakfast isn’t a big priority for you then I’m sure you’ll survive! But I tend to have porridge; the ready made stuff that you add milk to and zap in the microwave. I think it’s Quakers, and it comes in about twenty different flavours. Gwenn has it too and it’s usually in special offer somewhere!

Fizzy drinks was one of the first things I cut out at the start of the year – when I worked out how much I was spending on Pepsi Max etc I was shocked! I would rather put that money towards new clothes. Hope you have a good week – you have some good goals to work towards and I am sure you will notice a difference reducing fizzy drink consumption… my belly was less bloated immediately!

Good luck with everything, I’m a bit of a coke zero addict i’m trying to ween myself off and haev bought 7up free which for 6 cans is cheaper than buying 2 cans from the machine at work.

i don’t tend to guzzle it as much as i don’t mind it when it goes a bit flat and i’m not wanting a second can right away x

Good luck, and I’m sure cutting the fizzy drinks alone will make a huge difference x #BloggingToJogging

Good luck Vicky, I’m looking forward to seeing how you get on. Breakfast really is key so hopefully some of the suggestions on the FB page have helped. Thanks for linking with #BloggingToJogging xx
