Nepal Calling

Hey All,

Only 2 more days until I leave for Nepal now! I have been keeping up with the gym and swimming and eating healthily so I feel like i've prepared myself as much as possible. Im not really sure what it's going to be like out there as i've never been anywhere like it before but this just makes it all the more exciting.

I am feeling a little tense at the lack of control I will have regarding what we will eat (oh this shows how far I have come!) and the fact that I wont be able to get to the gym but im hoping the general activity of volunteering abroad will keep my in ok shape at least. I've heard they eat a fair amount of curry's over there and I do have to admit im looking forward to trying real curry's from Nepal :-) and im sure even have a go at cooking them ourselves.

More Cracking News

I have now lost half a stone! Woohoo :-)

Im so happy about this people. Since my last post i've decided to take more drastic action and have joined a gym, which i've been going to every other day and swimming in the days in between. It's a dramatic increase in excercise for me but actually im loving it. I used to go to a gym before and I had forgotten how satisfying it can be to get your arse working!

It's taken me 10 days to loose the half stone which I was even surprised at, I had expected to loose a few lbs at the most. I don't expect things will carry on at this speed but it's nice to get a really big kick start.

To help things along even further im eating roughly 1000 calories a day. This might not seem like much to some but as pretty much everything I eat is now healthy its plenty for me to be going on with.

Few lbs Shifted

Good news I have shifted a few lbs with my detox :-) im chuffed to bits. I feel like this is the kick start that I needed and im now determined that more lbs are to follow!

As it was Sunday yesterday we went to a beach in Swansea and walked for miles so I feel this will have done some good as well. However this might have been counter balanced by the slightly unhealthy picnic we had, but hey ho, you have to live as well I figure and it was a fun day out. We took our 2 dogs and they were so funny in the water!

The weight loss is not going as well as anticipated and im not totally sure whats going wrong as im defo eating alot healthier than I was. So in light of that I have decided to try and kick things off with a detox.

As of today I am having a few days of only eating fruit and drinking water (apart from the first essential cup of coffee in the morning), or fruit tea. So far it's only 10.25 so it's going alright at the mo. I had a bowl of sliced nectarine, strawberrys and cherrys for breakfast which was yum but I can tell I will get fed up of it pretty quickly. Plus fruit never really fills me up, im always left with that slightly tummy rumbly feeling, especially with apples for some reason. But then I guess the point of a detox isn't to feel full all the time.

I just hope it works and that I start to shift some lbs pretty quickly!
