Hi there
I found this amazing site / community only 2 weeks ago and I am hooked.
I've been trying to get motivated to get healthy and fit for a while but it never seems to make it past a couple of days, I am overweight and work in a quite demanding job, I'm fed up of being tired and falling ill 🤒 a the time due to me not looking after myself.
I know this is the place for me as I have exercised for 10 consecutive days, today I felt shocking having come down with another bug but still got my daily exercise done.
I'm starting this thread to make sure I continue and reach my goals.
I'm starting off super easy I don't want to take on too much and give up again which is what I usually do.
Here's to the start of my journey

Day 10
Vitality general fitness day 10
Recovery day 4
First water day 1
Steps currently stand at 4317 (2.2 miles)
Exercise of the day

As my bug clears and I get used to my new routine I will add more Gradually getting more difficult.

Here's to the first day of finding Charlotte (myself)

Merry Christmas 🤶

Welcome to the Hive!!! :love: andddd Merry Xmas!

Definitely following this thread. Wish you luck on your fitness journey! You'll do great, I believe in you! :happy:

Also, don't beat yourself up for «falling off». It happens to the best of us. Just the response for that should be «okay, I'll do it better now» instead of «eh, I'm just giving up»

As a former teenage girl...we don't have time to clean even though we have all the time in the world at that age. :move:

My boyfriend used to end up cleaning my room for me. lol

Hopefully she'll grow out of it like I did. That will probably happen once she starts buying her own stuff.

My room was always spotless when I was a teenager, but I did always buy my own stuff as my mum wasn't interested so maybe thats it.

Would just be nice to see the floor once in a while in her room haha 😂 after I've decorated I'll probably not see it for another year :imp:

Lol you had a good boyfriend I can't get my fella to clean up after himself nevermind me lol

Thank you @MadamMeow it's nice to know it's normal for girls to be so messy I must have been a clean freak haha 😂

Welcome!

In answer to why teenage girls rooms are always messy - my excuse was that I didn't know where to put all the things away. I also distinctly remember going on "expeditions" into my sister's room to find towels and laundry baskets and it was like wading through junk up to my mid calf. *shiver*

Yeah, don't miss those days now, but back then I knew where everything was on that floor. I don't know how, but when I wanted something I did know where to get it at least.

Fitness

  • Complete 12 Programs
  • Up my fitness and flexibility
  • Walk 1000 miles (I do this every year and really enjoy it, normally I count all my steps this year I am counting boots on only)
  • Exercise at least 30 minutes a day (walks on rest days)
Health and wellbeing

  • Look at my diet and start making some changes
  • Meditation at least once a week
  • Up my water intake
  • Upgrade my home (I hate my home, its small, cluttered and I can not afford to move or upgrade and decorate so this year I am going to upgrade / DIY / decorate somewhere different in my house each month. January will be my sons bedroom window. Im hoping lots of little simple upgrades will help me love our home again that and a tonne of decluttering)
  • Declutter
I will be adding my new year measurements tomorrow, I think I always go wrong when watching the numbers go up and down constantly so this year Im going by how I feel and will be doing my measurements at the beginning and end of the year.

:stomphard:HAPPY NEW YEAR :stomphard:

2 bedrooms now decorated and clean at last, this last week has worn me out getting the rooms organised, now to spend the rest of my time off work cleaning the rest of the house as the fella is no help at all and watches the kids trash the place :cry: 4 bin bags of items for the charity shop from the kids rooms and about 10 bags to in the bin :cool:

Me and the kids went on a local walk today to find some ducks
403643935_885064573320279_8073315740466136116_n.jpg

Its been a bit wet here recently so the waters a bit higher than usual, apparently there used to be a castle here and a moat, the moat is still kind of there, its not always full and in the spring we can walk over to where the castle is meant to have been, if its true it was a rather small castle, we usually come here in the spring to see the bluebells. Fun fact the bird seed on the tree stump is what we left the last time we visited in March :confused:

403641444_918421156292524_5401864887227727748_n.jpg

Finally found some ducks to feed (shocking photos I know ) and don't worry we fed them proper duck food. On the way home we visited the shopping outlet that we are lucky enough to live quite close to so the kids could spend some christmas money.

I have forgotten to do my measurements and I am already in bed so I will do them in the morning but in the meantime here is a photo of me from todays walk, I may make these a monthly thing to see how my body is changing if I remember. (I hate having my photo taken, I'm in need of the hairdressers and have got the worst flumpy coat on but this is me today on out cold but lovely walk )

Beautiful factories in the background, hopefully the next one will be more scenic.

Today was a total flop, I fell back asleep after my alarm and got up 3 hours later than planned, I didn't want to but I got up and did my workout, todays was pretty simple easy exercises but I seemed to find them harder than they were. I had my breakfast which I was finishing when the fella dragged himself out of bed and went and got back in bed where I have spent 99% of my day binge watching netflix. I finally dragged myself out of bed at around 5 thinking I could make my daily walk to the shop to buy junk food, lucky for me the foot path was flooded as its been none stop rain here today and decided to loop around the estate instead (4 loops bet the neighbours think I am crackers wandering around the estate in the rain) I've tried meditating twice today but can not seem to lift this gloomy mood, I feel like everyone's always take take take at work I have to fill in for everyone as well as my own job like its not stressful enough I feel like they just put on me because I've been there the shortest, at home everyone expects me to do everything now I can understand this off the kids but for the first time since having my eldest I have gone back to work and an working more hours than the fella but he still refuses to help,he occasionally washes the pots and cooks and seems to think its enough, I've finally finished the decorating after spending 12 hours a day for 6 days on it and yesterday came down to a bombsite in the living room I've asked for help multiple times and not received it, yesterday while cleaning I noticed everyone was just watching me or making more mess as I was cleaning, so I stopped told my fella he had to do it because I wasn't going to as hes not done anything to help keep the house clean, his excuse was he didnt know what was christmas gifts but these have all been put away. Today the house is still a mess he has washed the pots and cooked tea left the house a dumping group, oldest promised she would help out and instead has not left her room for 48 hours and has trashed it already 4 days it took grrr. sorry for the massive rant this is not something I intended to do on here a messy house always make my down in the dumps and when I've been slogging my guts out decorating / working / cleaning I would like some effort from the other 3 people that live here to help out but apparently I'm the unreasonable one Hopefully I'll be out of this pit tomorrow and in a better mood 5 days till I am back at work and 9 days till we have guests over for my sons birthday, wish me luck getting my motivation to clean the house.

Today,s been a better day, still down in the dumps but it was better than yesterday, managed to do a bit of cleaning and washing, had a bit of help from the kids. I feel so bad for having a massive rant on here, sometimes things just get on top of me, was nice to have an outlet but I hate coming across as someone who complains all the time.

Got a busy day tomorrow I have some last minute shopping to do for my sons birthday and the christmas decorations to take down was hoping to get a walk in the park in town but I've just remembered they were doing renovations and I am not sure if its back open yet. I hope it is I'm hoping a dose of countryside will do me some good.

Take care

Today has been great exercise wise and I'm too tired to be grumpy lol. I did nearly a 50 minute workout this morning and completed my recovery program and then me and the eldest decided to walk into town as the local pack was closed we were very tempted to catch the bus back but decided to walk I've not done a walk that long for a while, never got round to taking the christmas tree down tho so I guess that will be tomorrow morning's job. Daughter starts back at her boxing club tomorrow so tomorrow's walk will probably be walking her there (Its still getting quite dark early on and her clubs in the next village across). I've got the in-laws visiting so a early morning clean up is a must. Then me and the boy will be filling the freezer with cookies and flapjacks ready for school lunchboxes.

Today I've got up feeling sluggish, and has the days gone on started to feel a bit rubbish, I'm really hoping I'm not coming down with another bug as this will be the 4th one in around 5 weeks :(

exercise was a slow one today, managed to get the christmas decorations down and get the living room clean, never ended up doing the cookies and flapjacks incase I was coming down with something. If I wasnt walking my eldest to boxing I think I would have been in bed by 4pm. Planning on a lie in tomorrow and maybe switch my workout to yoga of just stretching.

Take care all

Had a lie in this morning helped me feel a bit better, forced myself out for a walk to the shops and did a small workout took it easy and only did 15 minutes but I'm not worried because of the walk I did. Hoping tomorrow's a better day and I manage to shift this bug before I start back at work, Mondays after the holidays are always manic.

Take care and sleep well :deepsleep::night:

Those end of week figures are helping me feel much better about myself. Worried being back at work will effect these numbers but going to try my best to keep them up.
