Fitness update

So if you're a regular reader you'll know that last year (wow that's weird to type!) I pledged to go on a fitness journey, ready for my wedding in August.

To look good in this Victoria's Secret bikini for my Hen do in Barcelona and my Honeymoon in Greece is my goal.

As it's the new year I thought I'd let you know how I was getting on. Well Father Christmas bought me the new gym trainers I'd asked for and on Thursday I took them for their first spin in the gym. I was only in there for half an hour though as I'd had such a break I didn't want to go in guns blazing on my first day back. On Friday I made my first green smoothie. It didn't really go as planned as we don't have a juicer so I had to put it all into the food processor then purée it with my hand blender which was a bit of a pain! It was still too thick but I think it's due to the "hard" ingredients I used.

1 celery stick
2 gala apples
Handful of spinach
Handful of kale
1/4 cucumber
Glass of water

I've also cut out bread and pasta as due to my IBS these bloat me like crazy. I've been eating as healthily as I can but it's so hard when there is still lots of Christmas chocolates in the house which I keep picking at! Nightmare!

Yesterday afternoon I spent 1 hour in the gym. I worked my butt off and I was really proud of myself. I made a super healthy meal for dinner, chicken grilled on the George Foreman, sweet potato fries, steamed spinach and broccoli and roasted kale! It felt so nice to eat something clean and healthy!

I think my next step is to invest in some new gym clothes as at the moment I have 2 tops and three pairs of bottoms!!

Have you decided to take up fitness as a New Years resolution?

You can keep up with my progress on Instagram.
