Getting fitter

I didn't know what to post as my first blog, so I thought about what I've done recently. I've always been on 'diets' since year 9 after I reached my highest weight of 12st,  I was a size 14 and this made me want to loose weight and fast. I am now a size 10 and in year 11 so I am not an expert in diets and exercise.

This year on the first of January I wanted to start eating healthily, I didn't say it was a diet as that make me think that I have to skip out foods that I like. I started by cutting out fizzy drinks as I don't
really like them, this helped me loose a few pounds but not a great deal happened.

So on the last few weeks of January I looked into joining a gym, but then I thought to myself would I really go. After thinking about it I decided to buy the '30 day shred' this workout DVD is made up of three levels to do over 30 days, all you need is some hand weights and a mat to work out on. The levels are split into 3 sections of abs cardio and strength, this is a total of 20 minutes.

This has literally changed my views of healthy eating and exercise, I look forward to working out and I still eat the foods I love. I have 3 main meals a day and I have a am snack and a pm snack, I also get one treat a day so that I don't over indulge on unhealthy food, I have found that this really works, so far I have lost 6lb and have toned up.

I hope this helps any of you that are struggling with healthy eating, but just remember that you can still eat and get the figure you want.
