The Blondes ’30 Days’

I know exactly what you’re thinking. Just another person doing one of those silly “I feel guilty from eating a truckload of food and gallons of booze” January detoxes.  Yes I’ll admit that did over indulge during Christmas (who hasn’t) but it also goes far beyond the festive months and besides im known to detox during the summer months (being the health nut I am) so it is no different to me for doing it in January. I also have a very good excuse to get my body in order but I can’t expose these details just yet… you will have to wait and find out!

So getting down to the nitty-gritty. Basically ive decided to get my fitness, health, well-being and body up to speed again. By doing this im going to set a challenge of ’30 days’ starting from today, 1st January.

 

During this period im going to do a number of things. Please bear in mind that I am in no way a qualified nutritionist, doctor or fitness instructor however if you would like to follow my meals and exercise regime by all means please do. I will be posting daily on my Instagram and Twitter accounts over the course of the 30 days.

I know my body very well and exactly what I need to do to achieve the goals I have put in place for this. I realise that every ‘body’ is different, especially when it comes to weight loss but if I can be of any help or at least encourage to people who are thinking about changing their lifestyle, then that in my eyes is an added bonus! Im also a firm believer of the quote ‘what you put in is what you get out of it’. Sitting on the couch wishing you had a better body is not going to help your cause. 

Another thing to note here is that I will still be eating out around London during this time. I don’t believe in depriving ones self from doing these sorts of activities that I love to do. It just means I will have to choose the healthier options. No biggie. I’ll also be eating sugar, just not the nasty or processed stuff, meaning natural sugars from fruit. Anyway, I couldn’t possibly go without a piece of dark chocolate every now and again 🙂

  • I will be doing at least ’30’ minutes of exercise every day. Whether it involves weights, cardio, personal training sessions, classes or just going for a quick jog, I will need to do at least half an hour each day. This is not too much to ask out of our day and busy schedules. It can be done.
  • No drinking. Shock, horror. This means no yummy cocktails, glasses of champagne and the sneaky glass of red with a meal. Water (at least two litres a day) plus herbal tea only. 
  • Juice cleanse. As of next week I will attempting to drink only juice for 3 days. The thought of not eating solid foods at all scares me a little but I am willing to give it a go. During this time I will ‘exempted’ from exercising as I will have little energy as it is. The juice detox is thanks to the Obsidian Cafe and Carol West. You can click here for more details and I will be sure to report back once I have completed the program. 

 

So that’s everything covered for now. Below is a picture of my lunch today. Doesn’t look very tantalising like my other food pictures I know…BUT it’s full of protein and good fats 🙂
