Starting A Healthy Lifestyle, Are You In?

Hello Everyone,

So this post is a little bit different but I thought that it would be fun to go on this journey with you all. So I’ve decided that I am going to be posting fitness and health posts at least twice a month, where I will post tips and tricks, workout information such as my favourite workouts and foods to eat when trying to get fit.

What I’m really excited about is having you all along this journey with me, whether you are wanting to lose weight or just tone up, I would love to have you all on this journey where we can keep each other motivated and share even more tips and help along the way. If you are interested definitely leave a comment and if you would like you can follow me on twitter as I will be updating there and chatting to you all there. I’ve recently set up a twitter for my blog and you can find it here.

So the reason I am starting this journey at this time of the year is because it is my sisters wedding next August, so I am giving myself a little over a yer to get into shape! There’s not an awful amount of weight that I want to lose but I do have a bit and a heck of a lot of toning to do. I’m so unfit right now! πŸ˜›

I have lost weight in the past which I have kept off so its just losing the last bit to make me more comfortable and confident in my own skin, although I am definitely a lot happier in my body, I still would like to get myself in the shape I’ve always wanted, so what better time to start than now right?

So here are some of the goals I am starting off with:

  1. increase vegetable and fruit intake (have at least 3 a day)
  2. exercise at least twice a week doing both cardio and strength training
  3. drink at least 2 litres of water a day
  4. lose inches across my chest, hips and thighs
  5. become more confident in my body

So they are some of the goals I am starting out with, I’m sure they will mix and change along the way but I’m happy with just have five that aren’t to hard to achieve and I will up them later when I have achieved them continually.

Let me know in the comments what your goals are, if you don’t feel comfortable leaving that in the comments, feel free to dm me on twitter where we can chat about it all there and I will chat to you about it all that way πŸ™‚ I hope you are all interested in this and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts and goals! See you all in my next post.

Thank you for reading,

Lauren,

    Super excited to have this!! I was also thinking of doing the same because although I’ve always loved strength training and the likes, I’ve never held myself accountable. I think I need to have “increase vegetable intake to 3 servings” as one of my goals because I never eat them! Can’t wait to be a part of your journey!

    I think using your sister’s wedding as motivation to get in shape is an awesome idea! It can be so difficult to get back into the habit of making healthy choices every single day. I have definitely been there! I recently shared some of my personal tips that I use to look and feel my best. Maybe they can help you too πŸ™‚ blondedrifter.com/vacation-shape/
