Mostly Mum’s bid for fitness fabulousness is continuing in earnest…
My Instagram feed is currently brimming with fitspo pics such as the one of the lovely Louise below. I am therefore determined not to let my motivation slide.
#goals – the lovely Louise Thompson of Made In Chelsea fame.
So this a.m., I literally squeezed myself back into the lycra:
Alas, more stuffed sausage than fit ‘n’ fabulous (and yes, I am holding everything in here…). So sorry Sweaty Betty and Nike! Am not doing you justice! 😳
Once through the first round of the school run (a bit of an obstacle course, I tell you!), I speed pushed Baby C in his buggy to the nearest parade of shops to pick up some of this:
SlimFast! Well, yes, I am on the impatient side after all… And look! They’re on special offer!
I know! I know! I can hear everyone shouting: ‘It’s a fad! Not the sensible way to do it!’
Ok, maybe not! But I’m busy and… desperate and… I need to see results, some sort of result fast or I’ll just give up again! And, oh my gosh, it’s the 321 plan:
As easy as 123! Well, hopefully! 🤞🏻
Also, I have done some research (Mostly Mum does love a spot of research!) and according to quite a few, or more specifically, quite a few Mumsnetters, Slimfast does actually yield results!
‘I lost 3 stone doing slimfast a few years ago. I found it really easy as everything was already measured for you…’ (ElliottsMummy 02/08/2012 – mumsnet.com)
I believe you, ElliottsMummy and hope to be following in your fit footsteps oh so very soon!
Also in Mostly Mum’s diet arsenal:
Vanilla green tea, from Germany. Mmm! Germany is great for wellness products, beauty products, experts… ooh lots of things really! So fantastisch! ❤️🇩🇪
And then because matcha green tea is reportedly great for boosting the metabolism (sooo need that right now!) I gifted myself with these two little beauties from Waitrose (naturally!):
Lean matcha green or supreme matcha green? Decisions, decisions… Aargh! Can’t decide, will take both, thank you very much! They’ve even been reduced to £2.35 from £2.85 – it’s my lucky day!
After a power walk home, with Baby C in his buggy of course, I was ready for a spot of exercise. Time was very limited as ever (as were my energy levels, if I’m honest!) so I plumped for another super speedy post natal workout from Amy:
Fit in 12 minutes! If you say so, Amy! 😊
I really, really enjoyed this workout today as it was exactly the level I needed having been out of the exercise loop for so long. Gentle yet effective (I could really feel the burn with those level 1 planks!). And then there is the fact that, like me, Amy had a C-section so she is really taking that into account with her choice of exercises. Just perfect!
Even Baby C wants in on the action:
If you insist, Lulu!
Diet decided! Exercise done! Phew! Time for a treat! Absolutely no way I can spare a mo to wash my hair but a spray or two of this and a brush through should do the trick…
If it promises ‘golden goddessness’ I’m there! And it’s on special offer too – reduced from £3.39 to £1.69. Wow!
Yes, the sensational smell, the shimmering shine, the brilliant boost to my faded colour… It’s all there! It’s fabulous, as I will be once I’ve completed the SlimFast challenge…
To be continued…
