Fat Mama Slim – Week Six

Week six of my Fat Mama Slim journey and I am struggling big time! I am feeling like such a failure – exercise wise!

I did manage to get to the gym last week – once. I also managed to hit the gym and run 3k whilst out on a Spa Day with a friend for her Hen Do.

Fat Mama SlimI found a great exercise pin on Pinterest that I tried last week at the gym. It’s something that I can do at home too, so I really must try harder to do it every day if I can! What do you think?

I went out on Saturday night and I felt really huge in my size 14 dress and thought I looked rather bloated – but then I have noticed that if I don’t do any ab work I feel like that. Do you have any tips on how to get rid of that bloated look?

Me – 27th May 2014

Even though I haven’t managed to do much exercise I have been really careful with what I have been eating and trying really hard to be good and sticking to healthy salads and wholemeal bread, although I would love to cut out carbs altogether!

I can’t see too much of a change in my body shape at the moment, except my legs are looking more toned and my thighs aren’t so huge!

I am going to have to really start organising myself better and making more time to go to the gym and exercise. I *may* even have to try to get up earlier to do it…..any tips on that as I am a night owl??

    1-2lb a week weight loss is healthy and any more wouldn’t really be sustainable long term – You’re doing amazingly!! So many people talk about bloating and it’s usually a gluten thing, apparently everyone is gluten intolerant to some degree.
    Keep going! 🙂 x

    Very interested! I would like to loose some ‘baby’ weight too so I am following your journey with interest!

    You are doing great! I need to start doing crunches or something. I find that by the time my OH gets home I can’t be bothered with much at the gym xx

      It is hard to find the motivation to go to the gym in the evening, especially after a hard day ….. I just keep having to tell myself that it will be worth it! x
