My Fitness Journey: Week 12 – The Woohoo Wedding Week!

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Life / / 0 comments

Well. My fitness journey is over… Sort of. For the last twelve weeks I have been working hard (errrr, sometimes) and watching what I eat (with the exception of chocolate as you all know that I am absurdly addicted), in an effort to shed some kg’s and to start getting this baby body back into shape. The amazing wedding that represented my “I-better-bloody-well-be-a-skinny-mini-by-then” deadline has now come and gone. And the wedding was awesome. Yes, but did you reach your fitness goal, you ask? Well, keep reading and find out! (more…)

My Fitness Journey, Week 6- The Why Am I So Angry Week?

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Life / / 0 comments

Well, its Week 6 of My Fitness Journey. Can you believe it? Half way through already?!! Woohoo! So, I started a new meal plan a week and a half ago as part of my 6 week Extreme Shredder program. Gawd, clean eating sounded so boring boring boring boring. But I got through the week without too much trouble. And as I mentioned in last weeks post, the recipes the program provided were actually pretty darn delicious!! Thank freaking goodness. Now my goal for THIS week was to reeeeeeally focus on doing it right and doing it without cheating. Like, at all. Not even a little cheating. PUT THAT SNICKERS DOWN GIRLFRIEND! (more…)

My Fitness Journey, Week Five-The Oh My God I’m Exhausted Week

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Life / / 2 comments

Monday again, sigh. Week Five of my fitness journey has begun. Already. Get up lazy bones! Now that the baby is in bed, get up off that couch and get “Extreme Shredding” already!!! I had completed two days of Sally Matterson’s Extreme Shredder program by the time this new week rolled around and was feeling pretty good. And by pretty good I mean completely exhausted, but…well…good. And I thought that I was finally starting to see some results! Hip Hip Hooray! I mean, things still jiggle, but I am pretty sure they are jiggling just a little less than last week. Brilliant. Because I was starting to feel like Homer Simpson, whose belly fat doesn’t stop moving even when he is standing completely still. (more…)

My Fitness Journey, Week Four: The What The Hell Am I Doing Week

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Life / / 0 comments

Week Four of my Fitness Journey is done and dusted. Which means, uh oh, coz there are only eight weeks to go now till judgement day. The three weeks that have passed so far have been relatively uneventful in terms of results. I do feel a thousand times better and things do seem to be jiggling slightly less each day, but there is still too much body pudding for my liking. Or the liking of any other human with a set of working eyes to be honest. (more…)

The Fitness Journey, Week Three: Sore, so Sore.

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Life / / 0 comments

So, we are now up to week three of my “Fitness Journey”. Weeks one and two sure left something to be desired, and yet I had laughingly high hopes for Week three. Now, I would reeealllllly like to say that I haven’t done anything downright stupid this last week at the gym, except that if I did so I would be completely lying. And those of you who actually know me would instantly know it for a downright lie because I ALWAYS seem to do something stupid at the gym. (more…)

The Fitness Journey, Week Two: The Christmas week.

Well, its safe to say that Week One of my “Fitness Journey” was a bit rubbish. Missed it? Read about it here! Ok, so Week One may have been rubbish, you say. But how did you go on Week Two? Well, to be honest with you, Week Two also started off pretty poorly, but I eventually found my groove so it ended with an absolute BANG! Woohoo! You Go Girlfriend (I creepily whisper to myself as I sit here, typing out my memories from the week that was)!! (more…)

The Fitness Journey. Oh God.

Well, it’s official. I have decided to put myself on a “Fitness Journey”. I recently decided that I am sick of not being able to fit into my pre-pregnancy “skinny” jeans without my mummy belly (which is a full size bigger than my legs these days) completely oozing out over the top. On the bright side I can still essentially do them up, however I just about have to forgo breathing for the entire time I wear them. And if those jeans don’t have room for lungs, then they certainly don’t have room for chocolate. And we can’t have that now, can we? (more…)
