Over the summer I radically overhauled my lifestyle. I went to the gym, I walk, I cut out naughty snacks, I stepped away from the second glass of wine.
And I felt great.
I lost about a stone, I felt healthier, I trimmed off an inch of my waist, I felt good.
Then September arrived.
I didn’t go to the gym once. I snacked (14-16 hour days can do that to me). I went to the pub. I put the stone back on. With a few extra pounds for good measure.
(sorry to revert to an emoticon, but it kind of sums things up!).
I looked at myself in the mirror over the weekend, and at the trousers which were feeling loose a month ago, but now feel tight, and I knew it was time for a change.
More fruit, more gym, more walking (thanks, Moonwalk training), more veggies, more water, more sleep.
Less snacking, fewer takeaways (usually I have one a month – in the last six weeks it’s been more like one or two a week), less alcohol.
I need to feel better and get healthier.
Wish me luck, please.
