I've been set a challenge by a friend of mine for us both to lose 1 stone between now and the end of January.
Not only that but he has set us another challenge that starts on 1 January which is 1 full push up and 1 sit up on the 1st, 2 on the 2nd, 3 on 3rd, etc. Sounds easy at first thought but this will mean 365 of each on 31 December 2017!!
I have weighed myself this morning and logged it into My Fitness Pal. My fitbit is currently on charge waiting for tomorrow morning when I will get fully into challenge.
I actually want to lose WAY more than that but baby steps...in fact I want to lose 3 stone by the end of February for my birthday...no pressure!
I now have a use for my A5 Fluorescent Original - Fitness Planner and Log!!
This has already been semi-set up with some printables that I purchased last year from PolkaDotPosiePrint on Etsy, I have never really got around to using them so now is the time.

|Food & Calorie Tracker|
|Weight Loss Tracker|
There are quite a few others in the pack such as a Measurement Tracker, Goals and a Health Journal so you can mix and match and add in as many or as few as you want. There are loads of matching style inserts for various other things such as a weekly or monthly calendar in various formats that you can also purchase.
I have to say that these inserts are beautifully done and I printed them out on quite heavy paper which made for a very luxurious looking and feeling set, seemed almost a shame to deface them with my data!! But deface them I will and I am determined that this is not going to be a short term thing. I am also glad to be starting this journey tomorrow rather than as a resolution on January 1st!
Just a quick look at how beautiful they look in my planner...
These are going to be perfect to set up my Fitness Planner and I am really looking forward to using them for the very intention they were purchased for! The fabulous thing is that I can just keep printing more as I need them (or if I mess up!) and so I can keep it going until such time that my goals are reached - or even continue as I'd be in the habit of it by then (hopefully).
The plan is that I will write down on a notepad/post it what I am eating daily and stick that in my PM Agenda. I will then transfer the information over into this one when I get home. I will also be looking into various menu plans and getting myself organised as far as meals are concerned, both lunches and evening ones. I think that the way to succeed in this is to be as organised and prepared as possible, and for that I am going to need my planner!!
I will update you in due course!!
