Bad Day...But I'm Not Panicking

Today started good, then went bad, I climbed back up but it took a bad turn again just. Lately I've been feeling dizzy and nauseous whenever I workout. Not sure whether anybody else experiences this? Anyways today it got so bad I couldn't do the cardio part of my workout, which sucked but I wanted to focus on getting better today so tomorrow turns out good.

Not only did I not workout today, but I've also had a sweet tooth and are now paying for it with a swollen belly. I'm not lingering on it and tomorrow is certainly another day, but I really want to get my diet sorted out. I used to have iron willpower now its more like elastic- not good.

It will be 5 weeks until I go on holiday and I really want to make this next week count for something. Progress is being made but it needs to be consistent. But tomorrow I'm meeting my best friend for lunch and a bit of retail therapy (though mainly window shopping- we are STUDENTS) so that should cheer me up loads.

Still no photos I'm terrible :(

Getting My Head In A Positive Place- I Think?

My head is gradually getting back in that positive frame of mind which came so easy to me back at university. Yesterday I didn't have a good workout at all my head was spinning and I was constantly feeling nauseous. But today's workout was a complete turn around- it was great and I had so much to give. I've realised that morning workouts/early afternoons also are my favourite times of day to get moving and burning those calories.

I have a holiday abroad coming up in a few weeks, so that's constantly at the back of my mind (so is the dreaded bikini). But I'm honestly trying not to let that freak me out or put me off my journey which I've been saying from the beginning is to be healthy inside and out- which means no fad diets. So I'm trying not to pressure my body, so far, so good.

Although today was a good exercise day my eats were only okish. There were white carbs in the form of bread and half a crunchie, oh and did I mention I ate a few fries/chips that my mom cooked for her and my bro and sis. But hey these things happen it doesn't mean I have to binge or purge. I'm going to work on posting more pictures, I just seem to always forget to take any :(

So...since Tuesday I have managed to maintain my weight but not lose. I can definitely see where I can tweak things especially food wise. It's just over 8 and a half weeks until my holibobs, and I would definitely want to lose weight and some extra inches before then. For the next 8 weeks I'm going for it. Flat out. Non-stop. I will be sharing my results on here as I've realised I need some accountability to perform at my best. Here I go. I am like a woman on a quest!

It's been a rough couple of weeks. But I finally realised that in order to move on I need to accept I have yet again gained weight, which is fine since I'm going to lose it all and more again (indefinitely). I am finally in the right mind set and moving on forward.

Anyways I had been obsessed with eggs for breakfast whilst I was at uni, but since I've come back for summer I'd gone off them completely (I'd basically out egged myself- if that's at all possible). The point of this rant is I'm back loving them and have been having my usual two a day for breakfast. Yesterday I had cheese and bacon omelette, today I had my usual and favourite egg brekkie. This.

Hopefully this will gear me up for my workout today. And yes they are two crusts of different breads (I'm obsessed- best part of the loaf).
