So, instead of braving the outside world I decided to just work-out at home. Luckily, Tyler went down for a nap so I was gifted a full 30 mins of intense cardio combined with a little bit of strength. Although I’m not currently doing the 30DS, I’ve taken a lot of inspiration from it. Hopefully I can manage 30 mins every single day, and then an hour on Saturdays and Sundays!

July 6th, 2014.

I feel like I’m already getting dangerously close to slipping back into old habits because of my complete lack of imagination. I need to experiment more with different foods and recipes, but I just have no idea what I will or won’t like. Normally I enjoy trying new foods, but it’s such an expensive luxury for me right now because I’m unemployed with two children. I can’t always ask my fiance to buy things that only I will eat. It just seems very unfair. My family are pretty versatile with food, but as I’m also aiming to lose weight, as well as become healthy, I’m a lot more fussy about my options. I guess what I really need are family-friendly recipes, that are both cheap and easy to prepare and make? 

I’ve also decided that my biggest problem lies within how much sugar I consume on a daily basis, whether it be added or already included. It’s a massive weakness that I’m going to improve. I’ve already cut down on the amount of chocolate I eat, and I’ve been drinking water without adding syrupy cordials. Slow progress is still progress, and I’m still making changes, no matter how small.
