Slowly changing my eating lifestyle..

If you follow me on Twitter (@LuceeLoves), you will know I have taken up eating more healthy. I am also going to start up at the gym.. more on that later!
Just a quick post/update on my journey so far! Granted, it's only been a few days, but I have really been enjoying the slight change and adaption in my diet. I have been used to eating dinners out of the freezer and having some sort of sweetness a day, usually in the form of a chocolate bar. For the past few days, I have slowly been introducing healthier options into my diet. Until I officially start the gym on a regular basis, I don't want to go cold turkey on the healthy eating. I'm just weaning myself and my body into different alternatives. I have been loving eating fresh salad, in the form of Lettuce, Tomato and Cucumber. Nothing too exciting, but I really enjoy it! I have incorporated Tuna into wraps and also Baby Potatos and a grilled Chicken Breast. For snacks, I have just started to try Ryvitas. My Mam always eats these and everything else with some sort of nuts and seeds in, but I hadn't braved them myself. I enjoy these for a little pick me up between meals, with a little spread of light cheese spread and a few cherry tomatoes on the side. This is a nice combination of textures to keep you interested!
As far as the gym and exercise is concerned, I have my induction booked in this week. I have previously felt as though I would have a panic attack at the though of going to the gym, but after having a tour of a difference gym, I am more aware of what to expect! I am very excited to start exercising - I am intending on going on the Treadmill, Bike, Eliptical Trainer and Rowing Machine. I personally would like to stick to doing floor exercises at home, but we shall see how confident I feel! Another thing I am looking forward to is sporting my new gym trainers! I have had these for a few weeks now and they need an outing, even though they will probably never set foot on a pavement.
So, that is my journey so far!
As I have typed this, it sounds more exciting than it actually is, but if you have any suggestions for any healthy recipes, snacks, etc - I would be very grateful!

I also regularly post Instagram's of my lunches and food, this encourages me and inspires me, when I'm not feeling too great! My username is @luceeloves!


  1. I usually have a nice piece of red meat (or pork) which I grill then I have some steamed veggies and if I'm feeling naughty, some steamed potatoes! :P xx.

    1. I don't eat red meat, but the pork would be delicious! Thanks for your suggestion! :)
