Healthy Bird: Week 1

One of my Wishes For 2017 is to get back to a weight and fitness level that I'm happy with, so I started the new year with a bang (as we all do!) and made a plan of what to eat and how to exercise.

I was going to join Slimming World because a few of my friends are having great success with it but I decided to try out their free 7 day plan to see what it was like first and take it from there. It's actually been really easy and most of the food has been good, especially the Spicy Lentil Soup, Quick Vegetable Risotto and Baked Eggs With Peppers, Spinach and Tomato. I'm eating lots of mushrooms, eggs and wholemeal toast for breakfast and loads more fruit but I'm still having a nice biscuit (or two!) with my cup of tea. I'm not rigidly sticking to it but whatever I'm doing seems to be working because I've lost 3.5lbs in my first week!

As far as exercise goes, I'm taking it quite slowly. Although I go on walks with Allan and the girls, my general fitness isn't as good as it should be so I've started with Sky's Fit In 5 program thinking it would ease me in but it's actually quite tough! The first few days showed me exactly how unfit I am but I've started doing two sessions a day and already feel the benefits.

It just goes to show how a few small changes can make a big difference to how you feel! Let me know if you have any good advice or favourite recipes for me to try out!
