May 2021 Fitness Update

Well May has been an absolutely fantastic for me in terms of my weight loss. For the first time in ages I seem to have noticed a change on the scales and after being between 15 stone 13 & 15 stone 10lb for so long I am finally out of that bracket which is a huge relief as it is somewhere that I have been stuck for so long which was starting to get to me but now I am away from it I am happy. I am also noticing that my clothing is starting to get bigger on me too which is fantastic and it is starting to make me see that the hard work is starting to payoff at long last. So here is how last months goals went...

 Lose 4 lb 
I managed to totally smash this target and managed to lose more than the original 4 lb. When I set the 4lb target I honestly din't think it would happen but to see me do better than that is absolutely fantastic. 

Go for more walks
Unfortunately this didn't happen as I was just too busy with other things going on in May plus the weather wasn't very good either. I am hoping June changes this a bit though and that I can get out walking more even if it is after work or getting up early on a weekend. 

Try a new activity
I didn't just try one new activity in May I actually tried two. I started going to boxing fitness classes which are absolutely amazing and I am going to continue going to these classes weekly as I love them that much. I also started a thing at Bradford City called Fitfans which is a 12 week journey to teach you healthier habits whilst also doing some physical activity too. I am really looking forward to completing this and seeing what a difference it makes. 

Try to eat 3 meals a day
I did this for about half of the month but other times it just didn't happen if I had a big meal or just ran out of time before needing to leave the house. I am doing a lot better though with trying to eat 3 meals and hopefully throughout June I can do 3 meals a day more often.

Have a cold shower each day. 
I didn't manage to do this one either as it was just too cold at points to actually have cold showers. The ones I did have definitely woke me up though and I loved them I just need to build the habit a bit more and continue having them as they wake me up more and get my day kicked off in the right way. 

So here is how my weight loss went on the scales...

Beginning of May weight : 15 stone 11 lb 
End of May weight : 15 stone 5 lb

Total loss for the month : -6 lb

So here are the goals I am making for myself to hopefully smash in June...

- Lose 5 lb 
- Go for more walks
- Increase my fruit intake
- Make healthier food choices when I go out
- Reduce the amount of alcohol I drink

I am determined that by the end of June I am going to be in the 14 stone bracket and if the motivation from last month stays I think I am definitely going to be able to do that. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction and I am absolutely loving it. 

Total loss for 2021 : -5lb

Total loss since start of journey : - 11 & 3/4 lb
