Back On The Get Fit Bandwagon

21:01:00


Last year I made a decision to lose the baby weight and get fit and I did so well. I enjoyed exercising and eating well and started to feel really good in myself. I lost just over a stone and noticed a huge change in my body.


I then went through a bad time with a few personal problems which hit me hard. I went back to my bad eating habits and stopped exercising. This led to me finally seeing a Doctor and admitting that I was suffering with anxiety and depression. Now I don't talk about my feelings so it was a huge thing for me. I was put on medication and I have been working hard on myself to try and help with my recovery. 

Anyway, I have been spending time doing things I enjoy like reading, pampering myself and reaching out to talk to friends who I have neglected recently. Next on my list is to start exercising and eating good foods again. I am not going to be hard on myself and I am not going to calorie count but I am going to focus on having a good balanced diet and stop abusing my body. I need to do this along with sticking to my other goals and hopefully I will get back to my happy place and find my confidence again.

I have already started with Davina's Fit in 15 DVD and attended a local Zumba and Yoga class which I am hoping to go back to whenever Andy is on an early shift. I love the energised feeling after exercise and the ache in your muscles that lets you knows you are rocking it! I will also get back to running in the Summer and it is lighter at night again. I think with my aim this time being to feel fit and healthy rather than to lose weight, I am already mentally stronger than I was last year.

Wish me luck!

  2. Good luck with your fitness journey. I used to hate exercise but like you say it does give you a really good feeling afterwards and since I've changed my outlook towards fitness I've found a bunch of things that I actually love doing such as running, Pilates and yoga.
