Day 2 – My fitness challenge


I am unfit. Very, very unfit but I look forward to changing that.
Almost forgot to workout today. I can honestly say that I am running on an empty sleep bank and my mind isn’t very clear.

Like normal, I popped Charlie down for his nap, grabbed my bottle of water, my knitting and sat on my comfortable couch. Oh and how comfortable my couch felt! Looked up and saw the cross trainer.Thankfully we have it set up in the corner of our lounge-room, opposite my favourite couch. It seems to be a great place to have it because it is a nice reminder. I know 2 days does not make a habit but it is a step in the right direction.

Tonight I was thinking of trying this easy budget paleo chicken and spinach dish (served with rice for the boys). It looks super yummy.



Spring Solutions

They say that you should never make weight loss a new years resolution. That is why I have decided to make a ‘spring solution’ to my life by springing into spring.

Corny I know…

I just had a shower and as I was drying myself I caught me reflection out of the corner of my eye. For a year I have made a point of only glancing at the mirror when I really had to. Today I actually looked into the mirror and decided that enough is enough.

So as of Tuesday the 4th of September I am going to put my best foot forward (my littlest man turns 1 on the 3rd and there will be cake and other delicious foods consumed). My final goal is to fit into my favourite jeans. At this point I am not going to set a time frame or follow a ‘diet’. I am just going to have a healthy life change through eating healthy and hopefully getting fit.

I’m thinking of using the C25K app along with dancing around the lounge room. When we made the move to The Southern Highlands we vowed to get healthier. To do more outside and explore this beautiful area. So far the cold has kept us indoors but with spring fast approaching our plan is to get out and about. Since we are new to the area and keen to explore if you know any beautiful places to visit or activities to do please suggest them to us.

One day I might be brave enough to show pics of my journey.

Until next time. Xxx
