Hi Guys and Girls,
I am on a mission to be the healthiest I have ever been this year (2014) Let me tell you a bit about my past diet and lifestyle and you will see that I am taking this very seriously.
I started smoking ages 15, I smoked for about 11 years and some times got to smoking 10-15 ready mades a day (more if I was going out drinking)
I started clubbing aged 15 and would go out every weekend, Friday and Saturday night, I would get drunk I would also drink in the week down at the local pub. I worked in a pub too when I was about 18 and used to go out after work all the time. I was a party animal.
I would eat chip kebabs, Pizza and all sorts of other processed foods and drinks.
My only form of exercise was dancing in the night club and I would sleep with my make up on.
AWFUL LIFESTYLE RIGHT?
So, I've been a Vegetarian for 22 years and gave up Dairy Milk about a year or so ago and swapped it for Soya milk. I gave up smoking in June/July 2010 so I have been smoke free for about 3 1/2 years :-) I don't go out clubbing anymore but will indulge for special occasions such as New Year, Birthdays etc and have really upped my fitness with Bike rides, Walks, Jogging, Kettle Bell and Blogilates I am also looking to start Pilates. I eat a lot more fruit and have been trying to eat cleaner for the past 6+ months BUT... I want to go further, so, I am going VEGAN :-) that is right no more Cheese, Butter, Eggs (not that I liked them much before #phobia) I started on 18.01.2014 and I will show you my last 3 days food & fitness diary below.
