January Fitness Update

January is over so it's time for my first fitness update. I started out the first 3 weeks with so much dedication and motivation. I did Kayla Itsines' workouts three times a week and then I was also running twice a week. Unfortunately my motivation seemed to slip a little bit and I only managed 3 workouts in the last week, but that is still so much better than I used to be. 

Before I started this work out kick I was expecting to immediately lose loads of weight. I can get a bit obsessed with the scales so when they weren't really shifting I was really disappointed. But after talking to lots of friends who are into exercise and much more knowledgeable than me, I realised that that isn't that important.

Even after only one month I have noticed a real change in the muscle definition in my legs. Unfortunately I am still waiting for those abs...

I thought I would show you some photos of what I have been eating for dinner. I am lucky that I get breakfast and lunch at work. So typically for breakfast I will have branflakes or natural yoghurt with banana and honey. For lunch I will eat whatever is on the menu which can be anything from casseroles to burgers to pork chops. So the only meal I plan is dinner. I have been loving prawns lately so they are featured a lot mainly stir fried with veggies.

 I hope that gave you some healthy food inspiration! I am determined to keep going and I can't recommend Kayla Itsines workout plan enough, it definitely helps keep me motivated knowing that the work out is already planned for me.

How's everyone elses New Years Resolutions going?
