Fitness Journal Week Three

Hi Lovelies
I can't believe I am on week three of my fitness journal, I am super proud of myself for keeping it up and doing better every week. I think I did well for the goals I set myself in my week twos fitness journal post and hopefully this trend will continue with in the future too. 

Like I said last week I went on the scales to see where I am and from the last time I checked I lost 1 pound I know its nothing major but its still something. The scales will be hidden now until after New Year as to me numbers on a scale mean nothing. As you can tell by my top photo my weight goes to my thighs, butt and arms. I am fine with that I just want to tone my body up more and would be happy to stay the same clothes size but just toning my body up. My waist is small and always has been but I am very happy with the way it looks.
healthy eating
Food Diary 
Ive had some days when I ate some junk food but most of the days I ate more healthy choices but the main thing I am learning is moderation. I have not eaten chocolate for 3 weeks now and usually sub it for a cereal bar, but I will eat chocolate once a month as a treat because I just love chocolate.

I am also using nutribuddy as a protein snack for when I come back from the gym ( I shall write more about it in a future blog post) I have tried it with milk and water and think it tastes best with water. 

Fitness Diary 
I have went to the gym 4 days this week which is fab and most days I have hit my target of 10,000 steps! I did no weights this week as I have a small problem I need checking out with the doctors so I am waiting for the outcome of that. Instead of the weights I did cardio and burnt around 200 calories.

I know 1 pound weight loss isn't massive but it doesn't mean I don't work hard at fitness, when I am at the gym I put 100% in and make sure I sweat. I am getting better at cardio then I was nearly a month ago and to me thats an achievement in itself.
Favourite gym songs this week
Michael Jackson - Don't stop till you get enough
Lipps Inc - Funky Town
Amid Stewart - Knock on wood
LMFAO - Sexy and I know it

Goals for this week

  • Keep going and keep motivated
  • Eat less junk and try keep it to one day of the week
  • go to the gym at least 3 times
  • do 10,000 steps daily

    Hello lovely,
    I stumbled across your blog on the Glasgow Bloggers Facebook page; this was a great post!
    I love the idea of the fitness journal and tracking everything you're doing and sharing pictures etc - I bet it keeps you motivated and it feels good sharing it with other people and watching yourself make progress! I love it!
    You look great and I thoroughly enjoyed reading all about your journey.
    Keep up the fantastic work.

  2. Well done, a loss is a loss, keep going! I'm too scared to step on my scales lately eeek x

    Well done for keeping up your new fitness regime, 1lb may seem small, but it's a great start!

  4. Sounds like you've been working really hard - well done! I need to get more fitness into my life, this is definitely inspiring me!

  5. Well done for keeping up with both your fitness and these posts!

    Woop woop well done! It sounds like you have been working so hard and if you ever think 1 pound isn't a lot think of it in terms of a 1 pound of butter and your feel better ;) x

  7. Well done you for keeping up and I always feel chuffed when I hit my tagret of 10k steps, ive still got 6k to go for today though x

    Well done keep at the hard work a loss is a loss at the end of the day no matter how little.

  9. Every pound counts and as I'm always trying to lose weight I know how hard you have to work for it. Well done.

  10. I love this post - what a unique way to cover your fitness journey! I love how you've included your favourite gym songs too and I'll be sure to follow your journey. I think one pound weight loss is great! It's something and it's progress :) x

  11. It's great that your heads in the game! My mummy's got no motivation at the moment. Good luck on your weight lost journey! xx

  12. Don't worry about the scales as what I'm always told is muscle weighs more than fat so your body shape might change without the scales showing x

  13. Go you! Well done for sticking at it, and working hard! Every pound counts, so that's awesome!

  14. What a brilliant idea. You're doing all the right things and a pound loss is great-if you are toning you won't see as much if a loss anyway but you will see it in how your clothes fit and how you feel

    1lb is good - Definitely better than sitting on the sofa eating rubbish. You do have such a tiny waist! Just gorgeous - Best of luck with Week 2 x

  16. Well done lovely you are doing brilliantly and a pound loss is great progress xx

  17. It might not seem like much but it's a step in the right direction, keep up the good work ;-)

  18. It sounds like you're on the right track! I think your song choices are perfect for the gym.

  19. Well done for hitting your steps target. Setting little daily targets like that can make such a difference.

  20. Any loss is still an achievement! I use Nutribuddy myself and think it tastes nice for a protein shake.

    1 lb is still 1 lb. You can't beat a bit of MJ in the gym x

  22. Your doing well to keep so committed to the gym, and it certainly isn't all about weight loss, toning and fitness are so important.

  23. Well done for keeping with it - I need to work on this x

  24. Best of luck with your fitness regime. You are doing well keep up the hard work.

  25. Samantha Jeffery20 September 2016 at 20:52

    Sounds like you have done really well so far, good luck with it all!
