2013 - new year new me!


Happy new year!

Everything went to pot at the end of the year for me! 17th December I gained 6.5lb, really was not focussed, Christmas eve I surprisingly maintained and new years eve I found out I only gained 2lb over Christmas I was happy!

Now I am re focussed with the new year, I have my resolutions, my before photos taken and my plans made and so far so good!

My resolutions!

My new year photos, still 2st 1.5lb that 2009 so happy!

Notes in my diary to keep my focussed!

I bought the new magazine this week, made some notes from it to keep me on track. Fab magazine, get it if you don't have it, lots of great ideas and recipes.
This is my strength right now, got my favourite gummy bears for Christmas, decided to weigh them out into 5 syns bag so I aren't tempted to eat too many and can grab and go!

My eating has been really on track, below are 6 of my favourite meals from this week!

From top left, syn free lasagne, 1 syn fry up and syn free mince curry
From top bottom, syn free curry loaf, poached eggs on toast and chicken & mushroom pasta.

I also decided to get fit this year! My second resolution, on Thursday I did my first walk around the park of 2013 and knocked 13 minutes of my personal best! Over the moon!

 Me & Liam are doing good motivating each other to lose weight & save money. Decided not to eat out until our anniversary (23rd April) we eat out A LOT so a big challenge but will make the meal so much more special plus lots of saved calories and money!

Liam is really wanting to lose a couple of stone and is doing so well, I am really proud of him and I think him doing this is really helping me ! Love him so much!
