It’s been around three months now since I’ve quit smoking and it’s weird to think back that I actually used to smoke. Fair enough 3 months isn’t THAT long but yesterday I faced the test. Up until then I had been avoiding going out and socialising with smokers incase I caved and started smoking again but yesterday proved to me that I have quit and I will NEVER smoke again. Being around smokers last night actually made me physically sick. The smell, the taste, the smoke in general is absolutely disgusting. Quitting was the best decision I have ever made. If you smoke, I highly recommend giving it up. You won’t regret it.
Today actually kind of sucked. I went and saw a dietitian to help with my food intake as I’m aware I’m not eating enough, which was all fine. But she also informed me that because of my insulin resistance and PCOS, I’ll need to start working out EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
Here I was thinking 4-5 days a week was plenty…. I’m going to be fat FOREVERRRRRR.
When your blonde haired, blue eyed, tanned, size 6 younger sister can sit there and eat a whole packet of Tim Tams and not put on any weight.

It was a long time coming but I think I’m starting to get addicted to exercise! That is one addiction I won’t mind having. I went to the gym twice today, an hour this morning and then another 40 minutes tonight because I was bored.
I’m also making an appointment to go to a dietitian because I am so stuck I don’t know what to eat. I am eating WAY under my calorie intake which is annoying because I want to lose this weight the healthiest way possible.

It’s still weird to think that I’ve gone from drinking Coke every day to not at all. I do miss the fizziness of drinks though, so that’s where mineral water comes in handy. Luckily I like the taste of it, too many people I know can’t stand it.
It isn’t anyone that is famous and can be found in magazines, and apart from my nan, is my beautiful best friend Kc <3
We have been friends for around 5 years and we have never had a fight. She is my soul mate of the friend variety and I love her to bits. She is lucky enough to have found ‘the one’ and is getting married! She is behind my weight loss 100% and has even arranged to not get married until I’ve reached my goal weight.
I can’t / won’t let her down!
Going to start Couch to 5K tomorrow. I’m scared and excited at the same time. Even though I’ve only done interval training for 2 days now I actually like running. I just need to sort out my breathing. It’s not my legs that stop me from running, its my lungs! I just googled some breathing techniques and I’m going to try what I’ve read on almost every link I clicked on — breathe in through the nose every 3 steps and out through your mouth every 2. Hopefully that works!
Time to get some sleep now, night!
I don’t know if it’s because I don’t drink but is Dry July really an accomplishment for some people? I know it’s for a good cause but I find it sad that it’s a struggle for people to go a month without drinking.
