My 6 week challenge!

Hello ma'lovelies, In this post I will be explaining and starting my 6 week challenge. I am being really brave to do this post as it is something I tend not to really think about and it is something personal to me. 



This 6 week challenge is to help me keep fit and have a healthy lifestyle. I have got development logs and will be writing in them each day to monitor my progress. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The first part of my challenge is the declaration for exercise. 

To begin my healthy lifestyle, I Charlotte , commit to cycling/stretch exercises for 25 minutes on: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday 
I plan to do my exercise in the following location: My home 

My Goal - Total Minutes Per week minimum
Week 1 - 175 mins 
Week 2 - 175 mins 
Week 3 - 175 mins 
Week 4 - 210 mins 
Week 5 - 210 mins 
Week 6 - 210 mins

The second part of my challenge is healthy eating. I will be recording everything I eat and drink each day for 6 weeks. This way I will be able to monitor how much I intake and check my eating patterns. I calculated my age, sex, height and BMI and in conclusion I need to have 1500 calories a day. 

Age - 18
Sex - Female
Height - 5ft
BMI - 27.34
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


My 6 week challenge was a little bit harder than I expected. I had never calorie counted before and didn't think it would be that difficult. However after each meal I counted the calories and realised I need to eat slightly less and also food with less calories in them.

The meal that let me down was breakfast. I thought that because you need a lot of energy for the day, I should have a big hearty breakfast. BIG mistake, I need to have food that will fill me up for longer and give me the energy that I need with less calories.

As for exercise, I did my workout quite late at night which is not all that brilliant for you, but as I was very busy I made sure that I squeezed it in. Well normally I hate exercise and give up halfway through, however this time I had Chris with me. This motivated me to finish my workout and without realising doing 35 mins instead of the targeted 25 mins. Thank god for boyfriends hehe.
