January £10 Challenge #Fitness

You might have seen my previous £10 challenges about how you can stretch your cash in creative ways to get more for your money. This month, my £10 challenge is going to be a little different from the last two.

I have challenged myself to lose 10 pounds in weight over the 5 weeks of January. I’m not challenging fellow bloggers and readers to do the same this month, because not everybody has an extra 10 pounds to lose. Over December I piled on the pounds and I'm determined to get fitter and shed the extra weight. If I steadily lose weight over January, I would need to lose 2-3lbs a week and make sure that I'm still getting the right nutrition to make sure I stay healthy during this process. 

My goal is to cut out all processed foods and cook all of my meals from scratch. I've been swapping sugary snacks for fruit and vegetables and starting back at the gym 2-3 times a week. I know celebrities have more free time to spend at the gym and money to spend on the ‘right’ food but some of the celebrity transformations of 2014 have been incredibly motivating. I know that if they can do it, I can.

I'm hoping that with this post anybody else who has a 2015 goal can stay motivated and we can all support each other to get where we want to be. I know that the 'new year, new me' is a cliché and you don't need to wait until January to have a fresh start, but it seems the right time with a clean slate and Christmas to blame for the extra pounds.

If any of you have any fitness or detox tips to share, which could help me with my ten pound goal then please share them in the comments below. Any support or advice would be much appreciated. 

Wish me luck,
