Let’s get realistic

I want to write a post which aims to appeal to all of you lovely ladies out there who look at fitblrs and think ‘well shit me, how do they have the effort to run and do yoga all the time’! Cos that’s what I always think!
I wanted to lose weight for bloody ages, and I tried and tried and tried. Different gym regimes, different workouts, but nothing ever really stuck, everything just became a phase! Now that it’s finally happening, I’m gobsmacked, because it doesn’t feel like I’m doing anything different. I’m not cutting out carbs and fats, waking up to do yoga or running twenty times a week… (Not that there’s anything wrong with the fitblr blog style motivation, I just don’t feel it motivates everyone) and it certainly didn’t motivate me! If anything I just felt envious of the bodies I saw cropping up looking (in my opinion) amazing in sports bras and leggings! (Please don’t ever think that this culture of aiming for the thin and slim is for everyone, it’s important to remember that you’re focussing on health and what you like! This is just what I am aiming for, but my hips will never not be curvy, and I’m proud of that!)
My change came about when I bought a bike. I was having so much fun just riding about, I didn’t notice I was exercising! I started using ‘my fitness pal’ again too, and suddenly I was eating whatever I usually ate (which is pretty damn healthy anyway and vegetarian) but I was making sure I was eating within reason! No snacking, no over eating, and measured portion sizes! I also included the app ‘map my fitness’! A great way to combine the joy I’ve found in cycling with burning calories (which also syncs up with my fitness pal)!
So far I’m 8 pounds lighter, and I’ve not gone to bed hungry once! There’s a lot of pounds to go, but I know I’m on the right path to achieve that now!
So I guess, the message I’m trying to get across to you all, is that, if you have pcos, and want to lose weight, then it’s not impossible. Don’t be saddened that you’re finding it difficult, because I truly believe it’s about finding a balance which works for you! Maybe for you, it’s not biking, maybe it’s ZUMBA or dance or hiking! Whatever it is, live and breathe it, until it becomes your lifestyle. Diets work, but then the weight creeps back on eventually and it’s an endless cycle of giving up the foods you love! A lifestyle however, is a change both mentally and physically which sticks!
Everything in moderation, and never give up hope šŸ’œ

I made this tonight and it was just šŸ˜˜ 
Quorn satay noodles 

Here is the recipe

I used ‘barenaked’ noodles from Morrisons because they’re super low calorie and I used Quorn Chicken Style Pieces instead because I prefer them to the fillets! 

It worked out at under 300 calories, even without using low calorie peanut butter! 
It was beyond tasty! šŸ’œ
