Biting the bullet again.

Yes it is true…

As of Tuesday I will be wobbling all the way to Slimming World.

I have followed Slimming World in the past, by my little old self from home and I lost just short of 2 stone in 6 weeks…

I was amazed by the results, but LIFE happens and sometimes we go way off track.

What can I say? I love being bad when it comes to food and I thought that’s what SYNS were for.

A couple of my friends from work have been attending the classes so I thought I would join in on the fun and sign up at a class too.

My theory being that because ‘LIFE happens’ whenever we feel the need to go off track we will have each other to lean on and keep going.

I’m quite excited about this little adventure, and even more so about swapping recipe ideas.

Wish me luck and hopefully I shall start to reap the benefits along with my running and Pilates in the very near future.

Evil magic pants!!!

Every woman has their own insecurities after having children, some even way before there bundles of joys’s created kangaroo pouches for them 🙂

Everyone has that one piece of clothing that they love, but it just doesn’t fit how it used to anymore.. (no matter how much we jump around and dangle upside down off the bed.. No? That must be just me then.)

Nowadays we are promised quick fix solutions to this kind of problem… Pain free ones too may I add.

Hello Magic Pants!!!

Can you imagine the joy in my heart when I stumbled across you whilst buying the little man some new bits online (and maybe a few essentials for me too )

I just had to purchase you. I knew you could make my wardrobe complete and make me look so much more sophisticated.

I knew you would make me look like I had the best curves around.. Not some leftover podge that didn’t want to budge.

I had been informed previously that these little beauties can do wonders to your body, I couldn’t wait for you to arrive so I could test you for myself.

I opted for the all-in-one bodice.
Thinking of all the outfits I could start to wear, I got a little giddy with excitement.

Rushing upstairs to try you on, I stumbled at the first hurdle..
How were you supposed to hold me in if you weren’t prepared to go past my thighs without a major struggle?

After a good 5-10 minutes you gave in.. Even though I had slight friction marks, no one could deny it was 1 to me and 0 to you!!

As I continued to hop and shimmy across the bedroom, I slowly but surly managed to wiggle into you. mission complete…

On standing up I realised that I couldn’t breathe properly and felt way to constricted. How tight did you need to be??

As much as I loved seeing my figure all nice and Shapley I needed to get you off me ASAP.. I hadn’t purchase some magic underwear, I had purchased a boa constrictor in disguise.

Calling our for the big man in slow short breaths, he came to my rescue. Or so I thought…

Taking one look at me gasping for air and unable to stand up straight, he broke out into a fit of laughter.

Men can be so cruel at times…

Didn’t he realise that now was not the time for laughing? I would happily laugh later on, but right that second I wanted it off like yesterday!!!

Once his fit of giggles had subsided and he saw I was actually in pain, he came to help me out of new skin.

I loved learning about the Victorian times, but I wouldn’t have been able to cope in those corset and basks!! How on earth did they talk to each other or move?

We couldn’t get it off, we pulled and we tugged, all while my whole body felt like it was on fire. I was sure I was going to bruise 😦

All I wanted was to look a little less wobbly every now and again. I didn’t expect you to give me all this drama.

What did I ever do to you??

So I am guessing the moral of the story is, If you can’t get it past the thighs, leave it there as it most definitely won’t come off without a struggle.

I’m sure there are a lot of people out there, who like me often jump at the chance of a quick fix…

Who has there own magic pants? Did you suffer the same trauma as me or did I just buy a Dodgy pair??

#fitnessfanaticfridays week 2

Week 2 has come around fast…

I can’t believe we are into the second week already. I have been so busy all week that it only dawned on me last night that its the big weigh in for me today 😮

I haven’t exercised as much as I should have this week, but I have tried to be good with my food choices.

At work I have still opted for the soup as its very filling and it doesn’t tend to bloat me throughout the day. On hungrier days I normally grab a whole meal roll to give me that extra fill for the rest of the day.

I really must start getting into the habit of eating breakfast too. I find I get obscenely hungry throughout the day if I eat breakfast though. Does anyone else have this problem? maybe it will pass in time when my body becomes used to being force fed food as soon as its on the move.

Over the weekend I am going to put together a meal plan for the week ahead. This will then hopefully keep me organised throughout the week and I can prevent the naughty treats a little more 🙂

Once I have purchased my ingredients online (I can’t imagine purposely ruining my weekend by rushing around in a packed out Asda) I can decide what we are having and when.

So this past weeks efforts have led me to lose a total 2LBS!! I’m very impressed with this considering my exercise was lacking somewhat this week.

I will check on my inches tonight and add them next week (scary!!!) to see if there has been a difference.

How did you do this week? I’d love to hear what you have been doing for #fitnessfanaticfriday 🙂
