The Plan For February

I've been a bad losing weight person for the last couple of months.

My gym visits trailed off as the winter months caused my duvet to be wrapped closer around me, the chance to actually see my husband instead of heading out into the cold for an evening gym session was too tempting, the healthier food choices were pushed to one side as the comforting familiar foods of Christmas filled my cupboards and the walks around the local area stopped because the thought of Christmas preparations were all that filled my head.

The backup plans of the guilt over paying for an used Gym membership, of logging what I ate and what activity I had taken part in on My Fitness Pal and even the grief/pressure I asked my friends and family to give me if I didn't tell them I had been to the gym all failed.

I dreaded standing on the scales. Convinced I was going to be back at the weight I started at. And yet I hadn't. Over this period I put on 3lbs. I was surprised and pleased. Only 3lbs? I could lose that in one week if I wanted to.

And I do want to.

So I spoke to Flyfour about my plan for February. It's 28 days. A short month, but four whole weeks for me to focus on.

So I'm going to make sure that my calorific intake for the month doesn't exceed 1440 calories a day.

I'm going to make sure that I go to the gym in the morning at 6am for a thirty minute workout and again in the evening for the same.

I'm going to make sure that I do my Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred properly every day.

I'm going to go for either a walk or a bike ride before I pick the children up from School.

I don't think that it is a lot to ask, of either me or my body. I think that this is the kick start/boost that I need and I just hope I can keep on track with it.

  1. Wow. Thats coming back with a bang! Good for you.

    Just be careful that you are being realistic. Thats a a lot of time to find each day for exercising. Why not aim to do that 3 times a week. Then you wont feel guilty if you dont do it every day and anything more than 3 times is a bonus.

    1. You're far too sensible you know. I did actually amend this... I'll have to blog what's been going on!
