Happy Saturday loves,
So I’m currently on a NEW fitness mission…
Basically I’ve hit mid life crisis at the thought of turning 25 this Summer, so I’ve decided to soften the blow by trying to gift myself with the best bod I’ve had yet. Annd this obv isn’t an easy gift, I need to start now, in fact I probably needed to start last year!
So if you fancy sticking around to follow my “transformation” (we hope), or even to help encourage me/ share tips and tricks I’m all for it!
I’m starting off with a post on my current go to breakfast, its so quick and easy to grab and take to work.
Chocolate and Berries Overnight Oats

Hello my loves,
Long time no fitness update! If I’m honest the reason for that being is I hit a massive blip in fitness after my Holiday to Cyprus last October. With that and my move back to Aberdeen I just lacked the time and motivation to get back into my routine. And I had a fab routine! For someone who is far from a morning person I was managing to get up at 5:30am three times a week, meet my gym pal, work out for an hour get ready and then we both would make the 30 minute walk to work. On top of this I had my weekly spin class (absolute cardio blaster – I’ll never recommend another spin class as much Seb Shorts) Yoga and Pilates.

Hello Hello long time no update…
I’ve had a crazy, yet unexpected start to this year.
So my blog has ended up neglected. And as this series of Flab to Fab was suppose to track my fitness journey I thought it best to be the first part of my blog to update and let everyone know how things are going.
So this past month I’ve really thrown myself into a proper fitness routine. It wasn’t even planned its just ended up that I now have different fitness classes Monday-Thursday. I tend to have a lazy weekend as they are all fully booked atm, but with four gym days and an okay diet I think this is deserved haha!
I’ve currently managed to get my weight down by almost two stone! Mainly in the last month. And the best part about it is not feeling like I’m trying to loose weight, it’s all just fun!

So apparently today – February the 9th – is National Pizza Day!
And who needs any more of an excuse for pizza eating??
Since I’m still in the early days of this health kick I thought I would make a post all about the alternative healthier version of Pizza that is super simple and easy to made. And also Joe Wicks – Lean In 15 inspired.

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.

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?
