  • As mentioned in my previous post, no alcohol.
  • At least two litres of water a day.
  • Try to start off the day with a cup of hot water and lemon.
  • Try to drink at least a few cups of green tea a day.


  • Try to stick to under 1300 calories a day.
  • Don't overdo the simple carbs. Pasta and bread are okay, but the key is moderation.
  • Fill up on fruit and veg rather than chocolate but don't deny myself if I REALLY want some.
  • Plenty of fish.
  • Avoid the vending machines at work.


  • Cardio for half an hour at least four times a week
  • Yogalates at least twice a week
  • Walk to work as much as possible - try not to sleep in and have to get a taxi, it's not good for my health OR my finances!

This plan is going to start on the 5th January. I'm feeling optimistic.

Wish me luck!!!

not sure if this is in your plan but i HIGHLY recommend breakfast. even if you're not a fan, putting something in your stomach in the morning is shown over and over again to help people lose weight or maintain weight loss.

oh yeah totally, breakfast is a plan! i've nearly always been a breakfast chick, even if i can't eat before i leave in the morning i always have something once i get into work.

although i oddly find that when i DON'T eat breakfast, i don't get hungry as quickly . . .
