So now I'm going to try and make slow & steady lifestyle changes using the Spark People's 28 day programme. Basic premiss is that you start by making 3 small Fast Break goals (1 nutritional, 1 fitness & 1 motivational) for the first 2 weeks. These will be the building blocks for bigger changes later! I bought the book off Amazon that accompanies the programme to make it easier to follow.
So here are my pledges for week 1 for at least 5 days out of 7:
- to eat 5 fruit / veggies a day as I haven't been good at this!
- to fit in 10 mins of cardio exercise a day
- to keep a journal of how it's going!
I've set a short term goal of losing the muffin top, medium term to fit all my size 14 clothes properly and long term to keep it that way! Let's see how it goes....
