Aussie Sarah's New Year Journal
So although I have been primal for about a year I decided it was time to start a journal and get serious! LOL. I did start a journal about a year ago and never stuck to it, partly because I suppose I didn't think I had anything much to say and nobody seemed interested, so will see how I go this time as I really need the advice and support.
I got a little caught up the last couple of months because since beginning this journey a year ago I actually gained 3kgs which I was not happy about so I kept dithering around, lost focus, wasn't sure of the direction I was taking and was also getting sick and tired of the gym. I have 2 boys under 5 so really needed the gym so I could exercise in peace and quiet, however the last few months I have been doing some at home and this last week because the gym creche was closed I managed to get in some good workouts at home. My membership is up for renewal so I really need to think whether its worth me joining or whether I can keep it up at home. I'm sort of one of those people that thinks more is better and I also need a plan, I really don't like waking up and thinking ok I got to do something today what shall I do LOL, however this last week my workouts have averaged about 30mins each day so really looking for something that is shorter but will get me benefits (I'm really not into a 10 min workout though)
Everyday Paleo actually now has a fitness site so am thinking of joining that aslong as those workouts I can do from home.
A bit about me, I have 2 boys aged 3 and 4, I'm 165cm and weight 55.9kgs but my happy weight is 53.5kg! I'm into health and fitness and always will be. I'm a stay at home mum and live in Australia. I love this forum and need to get my fix everyday. I read alot of the journals which really motivate and inspire me.
What do I really want to achieve?
1. Not to gain weight but will be happy to stay where I am at but just want to get more ripped.
2. Completley happy with the top half of me but would love to reduce that damn cellulite and lean my legs out, being a woman that has always been my trouble area. Even though I am a clean eater and avid exerciser I have never been able to shift any weight from my legs.
3. Just to learn to be happy and not think about food all the time:)
Anyway morning started off well, didn't want eggs so had a smoothie made with 1 egg, 2 TBSP greek yoghurt, 1 cup water, 2 TBSP shredded coconut, 1 TBSP nut butter and 1/2 banana. This made me feel great, took kids to the park did some sprints (only about 5 mins worth but it was unplanned and it is my day off) and walked slowly with them around the lake.
Lunch will be a salad with protein of some sort or maybe an avacado stuffed with tuna and the plan for dinner is the everyday paleo pizza. I may even have a mango somewhere along the line!:p
