Mummys on a diet hide the cake!

As with the majority of the country I too have been subjected to the well needed new year diet!.

So I set myself a target day for the 1st February to begin my diet, the 1st of January would have been such a tormenting date to start for me as the cupboards were still bursting with all the goodies from Christmas.

January was a month to invite friends and family over for nibble party's which gave us all a chance to catch up after the festive season and to get rid of all those naughty sweet treats lurking in the cupboard.

1st of February came round so quickly but I did need to start this diet as I am now the heaviest I have ever been, all my own doing mind you, too much indulgence and not enough exercise. So with a downloaded app on my iphone, and good friends who too are on diets and are very supportive, we conquered our first month, with watching what we ate and implementing exercising to our daily routines. we go power walking together 2 days a week and swimacise once a week, and by adding it in my daily routine is a real help to so its not so much of a chore but just part of my day to day now.  

And it is paying off I'm now just under a stone lighter and well on my way to my goal. This is the most determined I have ever been on any diet and to keep the exercise up is inset in me now for instance this Wednesday we had a parents consultation at Little Miss M's school (which went very well), on  the evening we walk normally, so determined I went with my husband who was fitting a carpet for his aunt and uncle in Faversham so I took little JT with me in his pushchair and power walked down to the marshes and back, and the views we had were stunning and a great talking point for me and my little man.

and when we got back the sun was out so we enjoyed a lovely stroll down the track chasing our shadows which JT thought was great fun. 

So getting fit can be fun too for all!
I will be a yummy Mummy x x
