Festive Fitness Challenge: Week 5-6


As part of the DW Fitness 'Festive Fitness Challenge' I am taking part in (you can read about it here), I am going to be posting bi-weekly about all things weight loss, and with eight weeks to go till the end of the challenge, the game is most definitely on! 

This week I am going to be talking about the struggles of trying to lose weight. I'm sure the majority of us have been there, wanting to shed the pounds but lacking in motivation, upcoming events that warrant a diet break or generally feeling overwhelmed by the final goal. I particularly struggle knowing how much I want to lose, and how far away I am from that goal.

I would class myself as a serial Yo-Yo dieter, so serial that in the past 3 years, I have gained and lost the same stone six times, SIX times! I've been so fed up, that I have often felt like giving up with it. My biggest downfall is being consistent, I'll eat and exercise perfectly for a week or two but once I reach a few weeks in, I burn out, get bored with the regime and slowly fall back into old habits.

This time around, I'm trying to mix it up, whether that be trying new recipes, upping my weights at the gym or overhauling my routine altogether. I'll keep you updated on my progress, but let me know in the comments, what your secrets are for staying focused when it comes to losing weight or living a healthy lifestyle.

  3. You can do! I think the first step is the hardest! Once you break your routine of going to the gym, it can be hard to go back... That's what I found! So get a friend to motivate you to go (I'm headng back next week with a sporty pal!) xx
