I'm Charlotte and I am going to get fitter in 2015..!

I'm Charlotte, mother of two, Amelie 9, Mia 8 and I'm 44 this year.. How the hell did that happen!

I'm going to share with you my health & fitness journey. I fell off the fitness wagon probably about 3 years ago.

I went from teaching aerobics, running, even doing a triathlon to pretty much nothing..

 That's me finishing the triathlon!

How did I just stop exercising, well for me it was moving back to the UK and starting Mia Tui , I just got out of the habit of doing exercise.

I've have tried many times over to start exercising again, but it never seems to last for long.

Why am I so determined to make exercising a habit again, well I have gained about 1 stone in weight, but it's about more than just losing weight, I now find my body is stiff, I don't have the energy I used to, and I feel I never have anytime for myself.

So this is about trying to get a bit of me back, feel better mentally and physically.

I will share my journey, the good and the bad, which will hopefully help keep me on track.

I am going to move more and eat less, but I'm not going on a diet..  I will though eat less kettle crisps & chocolate and only drink wine at the weekend..! 

The pictures below are me on my 40th, this is where I would like to be in 3-4 months time.

This sounds so familiar, I was a gym addict up to 2012 and then I had an operation and since then…. the weight has crept on, about a stone too. I have been diagnosed Hypothyroid which does not help either.

I started calorie counting on Monday and linked up to pedometer on my phone…. we shall see how it goes !!

Wishing you all the best in your quest. If anybody can do this – YOU CAN.
