Flab to Fab | Week 1-3 Progress

I’ve been MIA the last few weeks after saying I would start a weekly health kick update/ round up. SO that was a fail. The main reason being, I had an Exam on Thursday afternoon so the last few weeks have been filled with revision, a mock exam and then the actual exam itself. Also a Hen Do,  and another boozy weekend filled with food and munchies.

But all in all I would say its been a pretty successful-ish start.

I’m now 8lbs down from my start weight and that’s with only going to the gym once this year.

The only changes I’ve made to my diet so far are:

  • Cutting down to one coffee a day (My morning Cappuccino on the way into work)
  • Mainly drinking water throughout the day (At least 2 ltrs)
  • Swapping to healthier dinners
  • And only snacking on fruit

I’m still having a cheat day usually on a Saturday. So much easier to stick with this kick if I’ve a day off that I can enjoy.

 

Below are a few of “Healthier Dinners”

Anyways now that my Exam is out the way I can focus more on my diet and hit the gym more. Starting this Tuesday with my first gym class which I’ve booked in for at 6:45am (leaving the flat for 6 will probably kill me).

 

Do you have any favourite healthy dinner ideas?

| Food | Babs ~ Glasgow West Nile St

 

What do you do when you get a new hair cut…? 

Head out for a Saturday lunch to celebrate it. That’s what!

 

Ciaran and I can finally say we have ticked Babs off our “Places that are a MUST try” list.

We have been so excited all week (the health kick being a contributing factor). And I would be lying if I said I wasn’t sat at work on Wednesday lunch time checking out the menu and dreaming of all my maybes and musts haves…

And it was definitely worth the wait!

From the Tzatziki and pitta starter to the side of Doner chips. Everything tasted unreal. And I cannot fault a thing.

I decided to go for the Babs Doner and my other half had the Lamb Iskender both from the Lamb plates. But Babs caters for all ~ from chicken dishes, to seafood, and even dishes for vegetarians or vegans.

I can’t imagine it will be too long until our next visit.

 

Do you have any suggestions as to where I should try next in Glasgow for food?

| Flab to Fab | The Beginning…

Happy happy New Year!

 

I hope everyone’s new year has got off to a great start, unfortunately for me mine has been pretty poor. Starting with a chest infection/ horrendous flu that began on Boxing Day and hasn’t completely cleared yet, but is definitely manageable now.

I have decided that 2018 is my year for sorting my fitness and getting back to a body I feel comfortable in – because let’s face it last year is the most unhappy I’ve ever been in my body – annnnd I’m thinking if I blog about it, I cannot let myself fail. So here goes project Flab to Fab! 

I would love you to follow me on my journey. Where we can hopefully motivate and inspire each other-  sharing tips on clean eating, gym plans and progress.

Fingers crossed a few months down the line I’ll be feeling happier and notice a difference…

 

Are You On A Health/Fitness Kick This Year?
