I had a healthy childhood, but when I left home for university I let go and put on almost a stone and a half. One of my best friends, on the other hand, went to uni and started running, and lost nearly a stone and looked fantastic. I’ve always dreamt of being able to run and wanted to get my figure back so I started on my fitness journey!
Here are the main things that have helped me lose weight, gain back my fitness, and embrace my body for all the amazing things it can do.
The mantra: eat clean, do cardio, strength train, have patience. Make this what you live by - it’s what you do long term that makes a difference.
You might be able to see in my before photos I had terrible posture. Use yoga to fix your posture.
Start training from the level you’re at, don’t expect more than you’re capable of doing, and don’t pressure yourself with deadlines you can’t meet.
Stop comparing your body to others, whether it’s your friends or people on TV and in adverts. 
Decide what you want to be able to do (eg. run 5k) and reward yourself when you meet it (but not with food).
Find wicked healthy food that you enjoy eating. Don’t force yourself to eat stuff you don’t like.
Stop weighing yourself. Track your progress in other ways.
Find friends who are interested in living a healthy lifestyle that can support and encourage you. Other fitblrs are great for this.
These are the things that I’ve learned that have helped me, but everyone is different and they might not apply to you. Try different things and don’t worry if it takes a while to find what’s right for you. Don’t give up and remember, lifestyle not diet, long term persistence and patience, not short-term short-lived results.


No excuses to skip lunch, your body needs the fuel to keep fighting :)
