My 8 week challenge

Hello you lovely lot,

As you all know I LOVE my health and fitness but recently I’ve been feeling quite unmotivated.

I’ve been extremely busy as I’ve just had my 21st birthday so going to the gym and eating healthily hasn’t been my priority.

Drinking and having a good time with my family and friends took a front seat, and well anything fitness related took a very looooong walk to the back seat.

One tip I always give people when they feel like they’re loosing their ‘mo-Jo’ is to change things up and always set yourself goals when things are starting to get a bit repetitive.

One thing that always seems to unmotivate me is when I don’t see changes, that is why it is always key to switch things up a little and keep your workouts exciting.

So this is why I have decided to set myself on an 8-week challenge and post weekly updates on my blog for you all.

I want to do this so that I can be held accountable, and motivate myself through the eyes of my blog!

This is really different to anything I’ve ever done before, so really don’t know how well (or bad) it’s going to turn out, but I’m going to try it anyway.

I will track all my food intake, keep you up to date with my exercise routine, take pictures of my progress, and most importantly, tell you exactly how I’m feeling throughout these next 8 weeks.

I will allow myself 1-2 treats a week (just to keep me sane), and because I do have a few events coming up, I know that drinking and socialising can’t be fully removed over the next few weeks, so I will just incorporate them into my ‘cheat’ meals and allowances.

My challenge will begin tomorrow and run right up until Wednesday 9th May.

Here’s my starting picture:

If you would like to join in on this, then let me know in the comments below!

Thanks for reading, and see you next week for my first fitness update.

  1. Such a good way to keep you motivated and track your progress.
    I’ve just started getting back into exercising after a loooong hiatus. OMG do my legs hurt at the moment, and I didn’t think I had done that much.
    Here’s to getting fitter, healthier and stronger.
    Good luck!

      1. I totally get that! For me, that is the hardest part. Like when you have gotten really close to your goal but you just want to keep yourself in a good place/maybe tone up a bit…. it’s really hard to stay motivated!

  2. I’m down for the accountability part. I too love working out and being active but the cold weather and trying to start up a business took it’s toll on me really focusing on my best me. I still work out 3-5 a week but don’t feel as if I’m pushing myself or seeing any sort of changes, need to eat better too.

    1. Yeah, it’s so easy to fall off your routine and get a bit relaxed with treats when it’s winter! It’s so much harder getting to the gym too. In the summer I do a lot of walking, but you won’t see me out in the winter! That’s why I’ve decided to do this challenge to really focus on my goals 🙂
