January Challenge – Lose a Stone in a month.

I know! How cliche. New year diet bandwagon. I have much more than a stone to lose but for January I really want to focus on moving more and eating less. I spent the last nine months mainly at home and my commute to work became nine steps. I no longer went to the gym after work or managed a swim in my lunch break. I don’t really know why. I started lockdown well with a run three times a week but alongside that I introduced a bottle of Malbec a few times a week too. The running reduced and the Malbec increased over the summer. We baked as part of homeschooling – lessons in independence and other than the daily dog walk I hardly moved at all.

In lockdown there were a lot of plates to spin. Home schooling, trying to keep up with the news, navigating us all being home all of the time and working full time. We had no takeaways, none were open, and I think our main meals were fairly healthy but my husband made us cinnamon swirls and bacon sandwiches for breakfast. I just need to look at that to put in a pound so here I am on the 1st January drawing a line.

I will keep you update here and on Instagram. I am also hoping to do Redjanuary2021 and went for my first run of the year this afternoon.
