Instagram photo by catriona_tiuSo...this is me! I've decided to make this account to keep track of my progress, and find some support, as well as accountability! I've been on the outskirts of the @toneitup
community for about two years and now I'm finally joining it! I've always been so amazed at the love and support all you girls give each other, and I'm in need of some of that if I'm gonna stick with it! .
I started a low carb diet at the end of 2014, much to my surprise (Italian pasta dishes and freshly baked bread are my faves!!), and then I attempted to start tone it up in 2015 but I beat myself up for not being able to complete the full workouts, or do cardio, which led me to give up completely. I got engaged at the end of 2015 and decided I was going to get fit and tone up for my wedding (as so many girls do. I never thought I'd be one of them!). I lost a couple inches...I think, I never took measurements! But then after the wedding in August it all fell apart again. I tried to keep up with the workouts, but I live in a flat and was worried the neighbours would complain about my HIIT stomping π, and my husband is not a fan of vegetables and salad so it was easier to just get back to cooking carbs. I'm thankful he loves me no matter how I look, but the problem is with me. I laugh when he tells me I'm wonderful! I want to get back in to working out to help my state of mind as well as tone up and increase my strength. .
I've just left my job as an accountant, it was supposed to be a temporary job for 2 months, but led to 17 months! Before that I ran my own photography business, it was my passion! But it took me away from home too much and I hated the business stuff. Now I'm completely lost and have no idea what I want to do! .
The black fluff ball in the photo is our new puppy Jasper π€ There's definitely truth in puppy therapy, I love having him beside me each day! Although, working out with a puppy in the room is not easy π We got him 4 weeks ago and he's already been a great help in getting me off my butt and outside!
Woaw...that was a lot of rambling! Well done and thank you if you made it this far! #toneitup #tiu #tiuscotland
