Fit By 40 – August Update

I can't believe it is already August. When I began my healthy living regime in March of this year, it felt like I had ages until my birthday. But here we are, just two weeks away from 40. July has not gone to plan (which was why there was no update). After Dubz had to go to the hospital for an asthma attack, I was at the mercy of hospital food for a couple of days. Then I had a week of stress-eating as I waited for him to get back to his old self. Then we went on our camping trip. Not surprisingly, I did not lose any weight. Luckily, I did not put on a pound, despite all that.

But I will not dwell. June left me with a 22-pound weight loss. Although my original goal is 42 pounds, I will not give up. No, I won't be able to lose the remaining 20-pounds in the next two weeks. But I will lose the weight (though the new plan might need to be 'Fit By Christmas').

I am back to healthy eatinfit by 40 - august updateg. And back to the gym. I have really enjoyed my workout sessions (though I am not able to go three times a week in the summer holidays). But it turns out I love sweating. One item that I've been enjoying using after my gym sessions is the Mio Gym Kit.

I do not like showering at the gym. So I have been using the Clean Slate workout wipes, which keeps me from feeling gross and sweaty. It's like a baby wipe but stronger. And it has the loveliest smell. Like all Mio products. I just wipe, and then throw it away. And I can run errands smelling nice, then go home and have a shower. The gym kit also contains a muscle recovery gel in case your workout session has left you achy but you still need to do grocery shopping and pick up the kids.

I'll be doing another update in a few weeks. Hopefully I'll be fitter by 40. 🙂

 

 

 

I was sent the Mio gym kit from John Lewis Kingston for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.

  1. Good tip honey, I'm not a massive fan of the gym showers either. Glad to hear you're still on track, even if you did have to take a little detour on your way towards your goal. Only 2 weeks till your 40th?! I thought you were WAY younger so you're definitely doing something right xx

    Oh no, it sounds like it has been a really crazy busy time for you recently and I totally understand the need to snack on comfort food! I am there with you and hope that Dubz feels much much better!

    The MIO wipes do look great - I am not a fan of showering at the gym unless I have been swimming - would much rather get in, get out and get home and shower and chill!

    You can do it chick - to simply maintain is hard enough as it is... 19 more Friday's until Christmas Day... you can do it! Thank you for linking up with #WeightLossWednesday - hope you can join in this week! Sim xx
