Hi . . . My name’s Nikki. Remember me?
It’s been so long since I posted on here. Far, far too long. And so much has changed, I don’t know where to start.
This blog was always a great outlet for me to share my story and feelings along what was the most unbelievable time of my life. I let that slip and other things went with it.
So if you’ve been following me a while you will now my story. If not, in brief . . . I lost 8 stone in around months by training hard and eating well. With the help of a great PT and gym community my journey was straight forward, and I was so lucky my weight dropped off without any massive blips along the way. Yes there were challenges and I was able to face them and overcome them all with the help of my incredible support network.
Anyways, that was then and this is now. I am a little over 18 months since the start of my journey, and the last six months have most definitely been the hardest of them all. I don’t want to go into details, but it has culminated in me moving town and getting a little flat on my own. The stress and distress of everything going on in my personal life well and truly threw me off track. I stopped going to the gym, I stopped training with my PT and I ate everything in sight. There is no question I have put weight on, how much? I have no idea. Me and the scales parted company a long long time ago when it stopped being about a number and more about how I was feeling. And honestly I am not feeling great at the moment. My belly wobbles again (not just loose skin) and my clothes are well . . . VERY snug. Some don’t fit at all.
And so I have come back to you. To get me back. I don’t want to go hard like last time. I don’t have 8 stone to lose. I would like to lose maybe 1, and I want to do this on my own. For me. To prove to myself I can. So I’m going to start making better decisions regarding food. And I am going to train more. Not just at the gym. Tonight I had soooooooo much washing to do I didn’t have time to leave the house. So I went on YouTube and followed 2 workouts from the legend and fittie that is The Body Coach. And boy lord I was a sweaty mess. I can do this. I know I can. And if I can do it (for a second time) boy Oh boy . . . YOU CAN 2!
