It’s that time of year, the one where I get out my spring and summer clothes and try them on…
The buttons fasten with a bit* of a struggle but leave me with no room to actually breath out. Yes the clothes are ‘inexplicably’ too small and the roominess that used to exist is now filled with custard drenched puddings, stew with dumplings and too many glasses of red wine…
It’s time for the spring health kick. Now I’m not one to ‘diet’ it’s not my thing (which is probably why the clothes are too tight) I don’t do calorie counting and deprivation but what I do during a spring health kick is..
- Make wiser choices.
- Make treats just that, treats, not everyday occurrences.
- Cut back on alcohol.
- Up my water intake.
- Move my body more
I know that with just these five changes I’ll be able to drop 7lb in the next 6 weeks. It will be a bit of an effort, shifting mindset always is. But I’ll totally be getting my spring on and shedding that excess winter weight and getting myself in shape.
I’ll share every Wednesday my spring health kick week – what I ate, what I drank, what exercise I’ve done and what I weigh. Or catch up over on twitter with #springhealthkick and don’t forget to let me know if you’re joining in.
Spring health kick – start weight = 9st 12lb (which is eeek 5lb more than I’d anticipated)
