Truthful Tuesday on Wednesday

The fabulous Trish from A Dream House for Trish has started a new blog called A Dream Body for Trish.
*
Trish has many qualifications within the Fitness and Nutrition Industry however is currently not practicing in the field. She has set herself a personal goal to before she turns 40 next year to be Fabulous and 4o. Trish has invited us along to join her and set our own goals. Each Tuesday we will post our results in order to have more accountability and hopefully assist us reach our targets.
*
I am a day late because it has taken me a bit longer to get the courage to make this commitment. Once it is in writing for all of the world to see, it means that I need to stick to it or look like a loser! No hang on that's not right, I want to be a loser.... of lots of weight and centimetres!
*
I have put on weight since I met my husband and over the last three years have put on almost 10 kilos. I want to get fit and loose 8 kilos. I want to be healthier, thinner and not so tired all the time.
*
So this morning I hopped on the scales for the first time in a long time and I took all of my measurements just like Trish recommended.
*
Weight 65.2kg
Chest 91cm
Ribs 74cm
Waist 76cm
Hips 95cm
Butt 99cm
Thigh 60cm
Knee 38.5cm
Calf 35cm
Arm 29cm
*
Goal weight 58kgs
*
If you happened to read my list of seven things on Monday you will remember that I don't like exercise and I like lollies way too much! I dislike dieting and I really need to make this a lifestyle change. I need to reduce my meal sizes and increase my movement. My major downfall is sitting and snacking at my desk in the afternoons. I use food as a distraction more than anything and I need to find ways to avoid that!
*
I will do a quick update every Tuesday, to track my performance and because I can't bear to admit to failure this should be enough motivation for me to watch what I put in my mouth and make me get up out of my nice warm bed in the mornings a bit earlier so I can go for a walk!
*
Wish me luck and if you want to loose weight, get fit or improve your eating habits you can join in too! Go and visit Trish at A Dream Body for Trish and get lots of helpful advice and encouragement!
*
Have a great Wednesday.

  3. In the depths of winter this is such a good motivator. I know I've been slacking off from my usual nightly runs because it's just so darn cold. Good luck Nellie!

  5. Wow, you're so brave putting your measurements out there for all to see! Well done and good luck with it all. The only problem I find with doing regular exercise (which I try to) is that you get a false sense of security and think you can eat anything, anytime!! And in winter you can squirrel away the extras without realising the results until summer.

  17. It doesn't sound like you have much to lose..you'll do it in no time! We bought a treadmill about 3 months ago and it's been wonderful. We go on it about 5 or 6 times a week and really enjoy it. It feels quite easy to walk 4km in the morning with our favourite music in the background. Good luck, look forward to hearing how you're going..Rachaelxx

  18. All the best Nellie, we'll be here, cheering you on!

    I'm halfway to post-baby goal, it is challenging sometimes, but no doubt it will be worth it in the end.

    Good on you!
