My fitness routine

Welcome back everyone,

Ok I'm going to be honest here and tell you I forgot I was due a post and had nothing ready to go so I thought I would share the little changes I have made to stay healthy and try to get back in shape after having Evelyn.


Ok so I haven't changed my diet too much as I think I am quite a balanced eater already. However when I was pregnant I got gestational diabetes so I had to watch everything I ate and cut down on sugar and carbs to keep my blood sugar levels down. This has put me in a good habit that I have been able to continue to do :)

Now I said I have a good balanced diet and not a healthy one because I eat chocolate EVERYDDAY!! I could never get rid of chocolate, I also enjoy the odd pudding but sometimes I forget to wait until the weekend!!

Something I have recently added into my diet is water with lemons, this is suppose to help detox your body but I can't say if it has but its tastes nice.

The little changes I have made to my diet are that...small. Instead of snacking on fruits lots because of the sugar in them I have started to snack on cucumber, cherry tomatoes, carrot sticks and nuts. These foods are still feeling me up and making me feel good but I am getting more of a variety.


First off I hate the gym...now lets move on.
Having a new-born at home means I can't do a lot, I do make sure we go out everyday and this will involve at least a 2 mile walk.

At home though I do a little routine to help tone up. I love the blogilates 30 day challenges from their website as you either have to excises at the top of the page or you can find them on their youtube channel - they have some great playlists.
I am currently going the butt lift and it is so easy - to complete - but I can tell I am using the muscles.

I can't wait to try the others

Along with the butt lift I am also doing a 30 day plank challenge which is proving to test me. I  feel great doing this as on the 1st day I could feel it after about 14 seconds but yesterday I managed to do 1 minute and 45 seconds, I can't reach their time now - day 16 onwards - but as long as I am increasing my time I'm happy.

Is there anything else I could add? Thanks for popping by


  1. Doing 100 jumping jacks along with the plank challenge helps strengthen your core more. Also try 50 crunches per day. That way you get a real core work out! But otherwise the plank challenge is an awesome thing to do ;) www.knowledgefromtheheartwithmariel.blogspot.com

    1. Hi Mariel thank you for the tip. I have started with 5 for each and will build it up :)
