FIMOJ: Fitting Into My Old Jeans

So summer is about to come to an end and I feel like ive gained weight. It's funny because normally during the summer people tend to lose weight to "look good". But because wearing dresses continuously, I didn't realise I was actually putting on some extra kilos. I went to try my fav pair of skinny legs this morning and had the sickening feeling in my stomach...i couldn't fit into them! Dont get me wrong, I am not someone who believes that being absolutely thin is great, I believe in being healthy and keeping fit. But not fitting into my size 10 (Australian sizing) jeans was a blow for me.

So i have devised a plan to FIMOJ- fit into my old jeans. This is Day 3 of my FIMOJ and I have to say its going great. Obviously there won't be noticeable changes until a few weeks.

Foods: I realised my diet consisted of alot of sugary food as well as snacks such as chips. I have cut back on these foods (but not eliminated). I think it is important to have a good balance, because what will happen otherwise, if you completely stop everything (ie carbs, sugars) you will become frustrated the actually resort to your old ways plus you may actually put on more weight then you had to begin with.

Exercise: I have gone back into a regular gymming routine. I do Yogas on Sundays, and I gym 5 times a week (no less!). You have to be strict with yourself and can't make excuses, especially "Im tired). I do weights to begin with so I can build muscle, to have a nice lean body then I will do cardio to get rid of the fat ive accumulated over this summer.

Breakfast- Oats with Honey
Snack- Roasted Chickpeas, lightly salted
Lunch- Indian Meal of rice,naan and curry (my treat for the day)
Snack- Fried Rice (not oily, with alot of vegetables)
Dinner- Salad and Soy Sausages
Snack- Oats with Honey

Exercise: Arms
Bicep Curls 12 sets x 6 reps
Tricep Machine

That's my day today, I will be updating my blog regularly to show my progress and hopefully I get to FIMOJ in 4 weeks!!

Keep Smiling :)
