Just 3,5 months ago I had never entered a gym(unless forced) I ate/drank what I wanted when I wanted (which was often) so bear in mind that I am a Fitidiot and take what I say with caution 😉
I am going to share my personal experiences with you in an attempt to help you (where I can) but a large part of this return to my blog is for selfish reasons.
“Every excuse I ever heard made perfect sense to the person who made it. ”
― Dr. Daniel T. Drubin
I am an excuse extraordinaire and this will provide some form of accoutability.
What I did.
Gym – About 2-3 times a week (Yoga, Pilates, Personal Training sessions)
Food – Still ate pretty much everything I wanted
Supplements – Multi Vit, Amped Fat Burner
Mood – Apathetic, lazy, drained.
Results for the month – Dropped a kilo.
Gym – 3-4 sometimes 5times a week (Yoga, Pilates, Personal Training sessions)
Food – Ate what I wanted but over 6 meals a day instead of larger quantites less often.
Supplements – Multi Vit, Amped Hardcore Fat Burner (First 2 weeks) Mach 3 (Second 2 weeks), Glutamine
Mood – Awake
Results for the month – dropped 2,3 kilos
Gym – 4-6 times a week (Yoga, Pilates, Weight Training, HIIT, Fasted Morning Cardio, Running)
Food – 6 meals a day (2 of these shakes) the rest consisted mainly of
Chicken boobs, Veg, Oats, Fruit, Nuts, Tuna, Wholewheat Grains, Yoghurt
Weekends I still pretty much ate what I liked within reason (this probably wont ever change 😉 )
Supplements – Multi Vit, Break from Fat burners, Glutamine, Protein Shakes
Mood – Focussed, awake, driven, happy

Stuffs I learnt.
Eating clean is key to any body transformation! But in saying that I probably only eat clean 60% of the time. Extremes like taking on a Paleo/Vegan diet or 30day detoxes were just not going to work for me, I’m stubborn and did not want to commit to anything I didn’t think I would be able to stick to. So I avoided the whole spiral of shame and rather celebrated the small changes i had made.
Do weight Training – even if you are the only chick in front of the mirror surrounded by douches – weight training is essential for toning.
Get a friend who is your constant accountability partner – I have this in my brother 🙂
Get rid of easily accessible junk – I’m lazy so knew the chances of me consuming junk was decreased significantly if I had to use some form of energy to get it.
I am now halfway through month 4 total weight lost 7,4kilos. Previous Jeans Size 34 current Jeans size 28.
I will continue to Journal my progress and any tips I’ve learnt along the way. Hope this is has been a tad bit helpful….if not I hope its made you more hopeful.
Remember 1 hour is a mere 4% of your day – you deserve it.
