Day Two

Diet is not going well, haven't been to the supermarket so am eating out of the freezer at the moment, I have, however, started drinking more water and substituted my usual morning coffee for 500mL of water and my lunchtime diet coke for 1L of the pure stuff. I have my cookery books ready so plan to make a shopping list tomorrow evening.

I have also done my Wii fitness coach tonight, only half an hour as the half an hour I did last night almost killed me. Whilst doing it I noticed that my belly sticks out further than my boobs. It really is a sorry state of affairs.

I thought I was going to die!!!!!

I have just completed my first Wii workout since the holiday and OMG it was hard. I was so exhausted, not good, now my bum is aching :( On a slightly lighter note, did a nasty diarrhea pump whilst doing a pile with an upright row, not good when you are lacking oxygen and breathing deeply. I also didn't get to try out my new exercise step, well it gives me something to look forward to tomorrow.

Well Helllooo

So my first post.... I guess I should introduce myself and give the reasons for starting this blog. My name is Claire, I am 29 years of age, live with my gorgeous boyfriend (soon to be husband) in a lovely 3 bed house in Loughborough.

I have basically been inspired by some good friends to start this blog to help me keep on top of my new healthier living plan. I have just returned from holiday in France and have seen some snaps of me looking frightful. Nice posture as you can see, those boobies look like sacs :( So I have decided that's it, I need to do something about my wobbly belly, bingo wings and boobs.

So here are the stats:

Height - 5 ft 2

Weight - 9 st 1

Boobs - 36.5'

Arms - 10.5

Smallest part of waist - 30.5

Bellybutton line - 35.5

Hips - 37

thigh - 20

Ideally I would like to get down to 8 st. however as long as I thin out the belly and boobs I will be happy. I really want to look slender for my wedding and beyond, so I need to make a plan that is easy for me to stick to and that I can enjoy. Habits that I have to give up include, missing breakfast, having milky coffee at work, not taking lunch to work and of course the booze. It's not going to be easy but I am hoping this will help to keep me motivated.

Tools I have include; 'My fitness coach' on the wii, I have weights, a ball and some new steps :), 'weightloss resources', my blogging and Lounge friends and my boyfriend. I hope these will be enough to keep me on the straight and narrow.

Bye bye for now x
