Fit For Feb

I have made a little pact with myself and I thought I'd share it with you the hope that it might encourage me to stick to it!

I have decided to challenge myself to something I am calling Fit Feb!

For the whole month of February, I am BANNING myself from having any kind of takeaway food.

We tend to fall back on takeaway meals quite often as Jon doesn't finish work until 9pm and by that time neither of us can be bothered cooking....

I am also guilty of always skipping breakfast and lunch, and stopping for a quick McDonalds or KFC mid afternoon while out running errands.

Well no more!

For the whole of February there will be NO takeaways of any description.

Instead we will make use of the slow cooker on nights when Jon is working late so that a nice healthy meal is ready for when he gets home.

I will also be making an effort to eat more healthily, cut out sugar and reduce chocolate dramatically (Difficult as we still have tons of boxes of chocolate and biscuits left over from Christmas, but needs must!)

I have promised myself that I will stick with this throughout February - at the end of the month I want to assess if I feel any better, if my skin is any clearer, and if I have lost any weight.

Starting on Monday I am going to be trialling Superdrug's Meal Replacement Powder for one week which will hopefully be a decent kick start for me...I'll let you know how I get on!

Wish Me Luck!!


One of the reasons I want to challenge myself to Fit Feb is because I want to be able to wear summer clothes with confidence this year....meaning getting my legs out and rocking those flip flops & bikinis at the beach!!

So to motivate me in achieving this and to celebrate the start of Fit Feb, I have teamed up with FitFlop to give away a pair of their gorgeous Cha Cha summer sandals...perfect beachwear I'm sure you'll agree!

The Cha Cha Bronze Summer Sandals are priced at £70.00...and I think they are the perfect inspiration to get myself Beach Ready for summer!!

If you'd like to win a pair, just fill in the Rafflecopter form below!

Good Luck!

  5. Thanks for the competition! That would be a great prize! We've been cooking up huge batches of food together at the weekend (curry or chilli), its quite a nice rainy day activity with good music on! Then we divide up the pan into plastic soup containers we've kept to reuse and stick it in the fridge and its just a 10 minute job to reheat. We've worked out receipe amounts so that we can cook 5 nights worth of meals at once. Anyway thought I'd mention it in case it would work for you!

  6. Simple bit chic and comfy too

  11. These would be perfect for this summer (if we get one). The Fitflop range has been recommended to me by my specialist podiatrist as they will help stop anymore deteriation of a condition that causes deformity of the joints.

  12. These fitflops are beautiful! I have a tub of meal replacement shakes that I need to start using... Fingers crossed I can tone up for summer!
