Loosing a weight and being a mum.


I have still been doing the 30 day shred daily and I have already lost one pound (the pound I gained over Christmas). I am so pleased about that! I really did push myself hard last night and it felt great. I ached a little today but I seemed to have 'walked it off' by doing lots of walking today! My thighs still ache slightly now but honestly, I feel good! I am really, really determined to loose this weight and fit back into my slim size 10 clothes.

The hardest part about this healthy eating thing is, that I can't eat what the kids eat. The lasagne and spag bol, the sausage and homemade chips etc, all smell and look amazing and it is SO hard not to give into temptation but I guess it's all just part of being a mum and loosing weight (at the same time! haha). It isn't easy but I am getting use to it again.

I've been having a smoothie for breakfast and sometimes after I've done my workout for the day. I really, really love smoothie. I do want to add in some veggies though instead of just fruits so if anyone has any healthy smoothie recipes that include veggies, I would love to hear about them!
My favourite is strawberries, blueberries, banana and greek yoghurt 0% fat.(with a couple of ice cubes all blended up together).

Smoothie @ ups and downs, smiles and frowns.
