Getting Healthy!


I have be thinking about getting healthy for a while now, but I have added motivation now that I’ll be going on holiday in a few months and I want to be able to wear shorts and feel more comfortable with myself. It also helps that my boyfriend has decided to eat healthy too as even though we don’t live together knowing that he’s doing the same is nice, plus it means I won’t be tempted by anything bad when I see him as I know he’s also being good.

I also thought this would be a good opportunity to share some recipes as I go along and hopefully inspire you to eat healthier. I see eating healthier as eating home cooked meals from fresh ingredients and none of that processed ready meals, I’m not going to just sit and eat salads as that will get pretty boring and I rather make a lifestyle change to eat a more balanced diet than cut out lots of food I enjoy.

I shall post my recipe for Bolognese tomorrow, and hopefully you will try it for yourselves and let me know what you think! I’ll try to have step-by-step pictures of everything so it should hopefully be super easy to follow, fingers crossed!


What have I bought today and how much did it all cost?

Wheat Biscuits (Tesco’s own version of Weetabix)
Semi-Skimmed Milk
Maryland Biscuits (my little treat)
750g Mince
Smoked Bacon
Chicken Mini Fillets
Carrots (will also be for snacks)
Tomato Puree

In total everything shown in the picture came to about £15, as the meat was on 3 for 2 so I saved some money there. I always try to stick to buying meat that is on a special deal as it saves me money and typically changes quite often so I’m not stuck eating the same meat every week which can get boring. Obviously, I already have quite a few things in my cupboard, such as spices, stocks, and pasta which are all great things to buy as they will all last a long time, meaning although your first shop may be expensive the later ones will be cheaper as you already have a lot of the required bits, meaning the only things you’ll need to buy weekly is Milk, Fruit & Vegetables and Meat. Next week I’ll probably spend around £10 so saving myself £5, any money I save will be going towards a treat fund so I can buy myself something nice every month or two.


I also plan on doing this squat challenge! Plenty of people have recommended it so I thought seeing as I am going to be eating healthier I thought it’ll be the perfect time to start getting into some exercise. I’ll be sure to keep you updated on how it goes, and I’ll try to do a progress post half way through the challenge and a round up at the end.

I have also downloaded the myfitnesspal app, so I’ll let you know how I get on with that and drop me a comment if you would like to add me on there!
