WIW #1 | Hello 2014!

The Starting Point Edition

So before I get into the nitty gritty of this post, I have to wish you all a happy new year! I hope you enjoyed yourself last night and had a couple drinks for me! I was at work this morning at 6.30, only in till 9am so not too bad but still no celebrating for me last night. I stayed up to the bells with Louis then went straight to bed!

How convenient that the first day of 2014 fell on a Wednesday, perfect for WIWs! I've restarted from #1 just so I can keep track of this year. Moment of truth, I've weighed in at... 231lbs. Not great but not as heavy as I have been in the past. I have put on some of the 50lbs I lost last year and I was quite annoyed at myself, however I take solace in the fact that I've stuck to my not smoking and as of today, I am one whole year smoke free! Look out for a post tomorrow on my present to myself ;)

As this is the first weigh in of the year I have no previous weigh ins to compare it to (plus I haven't weighed myself in a good few weeks). My immediate weight goal is to get under 200lbs and I will bloody do it this time! I originally hoped to be under 200lbs by the end of 2013 but I got ill soon after moving and was out for a good few weeks then just didn't pick up exercise again. Tsk tsk!

Every two weeks I'll also be taking my measurements, much the same as my weight I'm starting again so this is the first one and therefore there are no others to compare it to. Measurements are as follows:

  • Bust - 49in
  • Underbust - 40in
  • Waist - 40in
  • Stomach - 49in
  • Hips - 50in
  • Butt - 49 in

So everything is pretty much around the same point which isn't really good, that means I'm losing my definition and just becoming a solid shape! ;) Last year I was really bad at remembering which weeks I was supposed to do my measurements so I've written down the dates in my newly appointed blogging notebook so I can just glance at it and know when to get that pesky measuring tape out! I've been figuring out an exercise plan so I'll write up about that in a few days once I've got it all worked out.

That's it for my first WIW of the year. Let me know below if you've made any resolutions or promises to yourself for this year. I know I've made plenty but that's for another day!
