I saw this quote on Instagram last week, and it really struck a chord with me. I have felt a little off for a while, not knowing why really, and wanting to pick myself back up. So, I decided to put my mind to it, and planned to get healthy. Not skinny, but healthy.
I have always been 'plus size', for as long as I can remember. But I feel that over the last few years, I've become more unhealthy, and lazy. So I am going to take the advice of the quote above, and believe I can. I usually just try here and there, never commit fully, but I am going to do that from now. I have researched more healthy dinners for Mike and I, which was a little hard as Mike is a bit fussy... but I think we'll manage. Our main issue is portion sizes. So that is what I am going to work on first, as well as more vegetables and simple dishes.
I have also started a workout that I found on YouTube. It's a 25 minute workout, with warm up and cool down. I did find it difficult after about 10 minutes, but I persevered and just made sure I didn't push myself too hard. The workout is with a lovely lady called Cece who runs the blog Plus Size Princess, and is a workout with some lovely plus size ladies, showing that we do exercise, and it can be fun. She is currently running a #PSPfit challenge for January, which looks great, and I am going to try and stick to her plan. The main things are clearing out any Christmas food still hanging around, eating nice healthy food, and not to mention, some good exercise. At the end of the video I followed, it is suggested that you do a 25-30 minute workout 4 times a week, so I am going to stick to that. Not to mention fitting in a walk or two around my village during my free days during the week.
So that is the plan. Eat healthy, exercise more and enjoy life :)
