Ladybird Top And Strip Down Side Jeans
Hello friends, happy Tuesday. How was Blue Monday for you? Hopefully not too bad? I had a nice run in the morning, caught up with some blog work midday and a lazy afternoon doing nothing.
Having a holiday in Winter is not much fun when the Husband is at work and children at school though, is it!?I might have to go shopping tomorrow!!

Ladybird Top And Strip Down Side Jeans: Yesterday's outfit was inspired by a trip to Bristol last year. I love these mid wash slim blue jeans with white and red side stripe which I picked up from Zara in the Summer. This ladybird t-shirt is so sweet and comfy trainers are a must when going out and about. I also teamed this outfit up with a chunky knitted red cardigan to keep me nice and warm!!

New Fitness Plans: Just Do It
Good morning friends. Happy Monday. Today is also Blue Monday, the most depressing day of the year 😟. I'm not going to let today be blue as I have two weeks holiday from work and today I started my new fitness plan. So I have plenty of time to exercise and plan healthier dinners and catch up on lots of jobs that need doing.

New Fitness Plans: Just Do It
In the words of Nike " Just Do It." 
Today I started running again and plan to kick start it with a 2-week run streak to get me back into running again. 
Mollie and I ran 2 miles to the park and back. 
We took this photo when we got home and yep, she still looks fresh and I was out of breath!!
 All good though. 
My knees hurt a little on the way home with this extra weight I'm carrying but OK. 
I ran a bit and walked a bit as I do not want to overdo it as I want to go out again tomorrow. 
My Fitbit died on me as the battery does not last long before needing charging. 
Grr typical as I wanted to do 10, 000 steps today too.
Any fun plans for today?
Have a great day and don't let it be blue 🤗

My Top Ten Tips To Lose Weight In Your 40's And Beyond. Some ideas that I have picked up along the way.
My Top Ten Tips To Lose Weight In Your 40's And Beyond

When you reach your forties unless you are very lucky, you can easily start to gain weight. My weight fluctuates like a yo-yo since reaching 40.

Then when you get to 45 you might have 2 decisions to make like I have:

1. Buy a whole new wardrobe of clothes (nice idea) that fit properly and comfortable.
2. Try and lose weight. (Perhaps also buy some new clothes!)

Whichever decision you make it needs to be the right one for you.

As it is how you feel but if you do want to lose a few pounds and make your favourite jeans fit again.
Read on.

My Top Ten Tips To Lose Weight In Your 40's And Beyond:

1.) Make Plans: 

Do you want to lose weight? How much weight do you want to lose?
Set a target. Write it down.
You are much more likely to stick to a plan if you write it down and tell people about it.
Be realistic though.
Any weight you lose needs to be sensibly done.
This time you want to keep it off.
Have a short term goal and a long term end goal.

2.) Drink More Water:

Quite often you think you are hungry, it may well be you are low on fluids.
Try drinking regularly throughout the day.
When you do eat if your fluid intake has been good you will feel fuller for longer.
I have a large glass first thing, then every trip into the kitchen a sip or two.
With a sports bottle for the gym.
Always drink extra if you exercise.

3.) Try A New Exercise:

Try to visit a gym or go for a swim or a jog or an extra walk around the block.
Start with something new perhaps 2 or 3 times a week.
Plan your workout goals each week, try and stick to them.
Do not feel guilty if you don’t manage everything you planned.
Just make a small goal to start and take it from there.

4.) Make Your Meal Times Filling:

 Eat a sensible breakfast, lunch and a healthy dinner.
If you make sure you are full up after each meal you are less likely to head for the biscuit tin an hour later.

5.) Fill Up On Fruit And Vegetables: 

Rather than bread and pasta.
Try to add a bit more fruit and veg on your plate and cut down on carbs.
It is surprising how much it can fill you up.
The great thing about most veg is that they are mainly calorie free.

6.) Shop sensibly:

Never go shopping when hungry.
Fatal mistake.
Also, stick to a shopping list.
Do not let the supermarket offers take you away from your list.
If you do not buy in biscuits you will not eat them!

7.) Walk More:

Instead of going short rides in the car, think about walking instead.
Get off the bus a few stops earlier.
Walk up the steps instead of taking the escalator.
There are always ways you can add more walking in a day.
Stuck at home? Make excuses to go upstairs or downstairs more.
Buy a fitness tracker watch and set yourself fun step challenges.

8.) Do Not Give In:

Remember why you are doing this.
Think about your goals.
Don’t feel bad if you eat something you did not want to eat or missed a gym class/run because of the rain.
Simply move on, forget about it and carry on tomorrow.
Or you could risk going down that I’ve failed now so what does it matter if I eat the packet of biscuits now!?
I have done this many of times!
Will power!

9.) Make It Fun:

If it is not fun, then why are you doing it?
If you hate doing something it makes you miserable.
Think of new ways to make exercise more fun.
Try and find a class that is exciting.
That reminds me, I really want to go and try trampolining classes out. I am a big kid at heart.

10.) Reward Yourself:

Give yourself a pat on the back when you reach your short-term goals a little treat of your choice and have a big treat planned for your end goal.
I have a pair of my favourite brand’s shoes planned for my long-term goal.
I hope you have enjoyed the tips I have shared here today?
