Journey to my wedding dress… the beginning

Happy New year! 

Here we are! 2018! 

2017 was a pretty amazing year for me, after living together for over a year my other half and I brought our first house together. A couple if months later we got a puppy and then in October he proposed! A lot of faulting milestones right there! 

Now that it’s 2018 I can officially say, I’m getting married this year! I’m super excited but so much to do and not a lot of time to do it. I was quite content to have a long engagement but the fiance wanted to get married the next year.  We have booked the venue and paid the deposit so I have 11 months to loose 2-3 stone.

I haven’t picked a dress or even know what style I want to go for yet, I’ll probably decide this when I start trying stuff on.

So here’s the plan…. get my ass back to slimming world, get back on the pole and pick up a high intensity interval training program. 

I’ve been doing slimming world for about 2 years now but i have to admit I’m very lazy about it, now is the time to get my head in the right place and focus.  By the way, I lost 2 pounds over Xmas, mwahaha!

I’ve developed my pole dancing program so I can focus on routines, back bends and splits evenly throughout the week. 

I have also purchased the BODY BOSS HIIT program. This is a 4 week program followed by a 12 week formal program. Tonight I took my starting pictures, weighed myself and took various measurements around my body, I’m not ready to post actual numbers yet or the photos, but i hope that posting weekly updates will keep me on track. 

I have also set myself 3 health related new years resolutions, all achievable I believe. Drink at least 1 litre of water a day, by this I mean unflavoured natural eater, not fizzy, flavoured or coke. 

Have at least one vegetarian meal a week.

Try a new recipe every week. 

I’m feeling really positive this year and can’t wait to see the results!

  1. I definitely need to get on the water train! I don’t drink as much of it as I should. I’m a vegetarian so I know it can be really hard to not only find something to eat but also come up with creative recipes! However, veggie burgers are my absolute favorite and it’s super easy to customize! I really hope you reach your goals!

    1. thank you so much! my trick for getting more water at the moment is to keep a 750ml bottle on my desk at work and challenge myself to drink the whole thing in the morning and again in the afternoon. I only need to glasses in the evening at home then!
