Body Progress Update #1

I've spent a good few weeks deciding whether or not I wanted to write this post and put myself so far out there on the internet, but I'm trying to care less about what people think and just be a bit more positive. So here I am sharing my body progress with you guys.

My journey has been very slow compared to some people's and that's because it took me a long time to get into a routine of just generally making healthier life choices, and I have hit a few bumps in the road. Nonetheless I am extremely proud of my progress and will be continuing to share it with you guys should you all wish. 

 This is me, a year on from when I began going to the gym regularly and eating far more healthily. The before pictures of me in a bikini are just a tad unsightly so I'm afraid I don't have the balls to be posting those.

I am fully aware I'm far from perfect (and far from a Victoria's Secret Model...but that's just unrealistic for me) and I am still far from where I want to be, but I have toned up a lot and gone down 2 dress sizes (from a 14 to a 10), despite the scales actually not moving, so I am extremely proud of myself.  My waist has also come in and I've lost a lot of fat from my thighs and arms. Currently I have fallen off the rails with the gym and last week I only went three times, and generally I will go five or six, but that happens. Cutting down on overly processed foods and refined sugar has helped me along my journey, although I do still order the occasional Dominoes and chow down on an entire pack of Fox's Jam'n Cream Biscuits!

The above picture is from my Summer Ball in 2015, and the below is from my 2016 Summer Ball. You can see that my shape has definitely changed around my tummy.

I hope to write a few "What I Eat In A Day" posts and an updated gym routine in the near future if that is of interest to anyone?  My goals at the moment are to sort out my tummy and tone it up and also to grow the booty! Progress is slow but from experience I know that is the best if it's a long term change you are after. I owe a lot to the internet in particular for keeping me motivated, in particular to Carly Rowena and Ashley Nocera, who are just two of the most beautiful and inspirational people going.

Are you on any body journeys at the moment?
