My New Mum Diet

Today I have decided that I am going to have a big lifestyle change. While I am not necessarily going to go on a “diet” I am going to actively try and eat much healthier that I usually do.

Since the beginning of lock down my eating habits have become atrocious and I find myself reaching for the snack cupboard more than ever now, due to boredom. What’s worse, is that I see my daughter copying me, and that worries me as well. So enough is enough, and change is needed. I have gained 2 inches around my waist and this needs to be gone. What’s more, I feel more unfit than I have ever felt before, and so this is going to be changed as well.

I have a goal in mind, I want to be able to fit into a dress by the end of November so I can use it to go out dating again. Is it a doable goal? Definitely if I put my mind to it.

So here goes. I am documenting the beginning of my journey here for the world to see and I will post up my progress daily on social media, and weekly here.

What is my Game Plan?

  1. Eat healthier
    • I need to start eating healthier and cut out snacking. Snacking is my biggest downfall, rather than eating a piece of fruit (like I encourage my little one to do) or a handful of nuts, I go for the unhealthier options of biscuits and chocolates. This is going to stop!
  2. Drink more water
    • I rarely drink my quota of water for the day. In fact if I even have 2 glasses of water I call that a good day. So I am going to work on making sure I have the recommended 8 glasses of water EVERYDAY to help me get fitter and healthier.
  3. Exercise more
    • Starting the gym or just exercising in my living room, and sticking to the routine. This is by far the biggest and hardest part of my plan, but with encouragement from everyone around me (And YOU!) I know that I can do this!

So these are the changes that I am planning on starting, and sticking to.

Lets see how it goes!

Have you started a health kick plan, or diet? What did you do? Did it work? What was your goal, and did you achieve it?

Perhaps we can go on this journey together xx

Much love xx
