I’m really excited to share with you a recent interview I had with my local newspaper with regards to some selfies I posted on my social media. Now for those of you who follow me on Instagram you’ve probably seen one or two of these pictures.
If you don’t follow me on Instagram (well for starters you should! Insta name: katyhemfit go follow me now, you wont regret it 😀 ) you can see the pictures below.
So why do I post pictures of my cellulite, bloated stomach and fat for the whole world to see?
I have a great feeling about 2016 and know it’s going to be a good one. I have lots of goals and things I know I’m going to achieve, but not without a solid plan.
I’m going to be having a look back at one of my goals from last year and talking you through how to make this year, your best yet!
The start of a new year is a great opportunity to consider what you want to achieve that year and how you’re going to do it.
Last year I decided I wanted to cut back on my intake of meat and dairy and wouldn’t you know it…6 months into 2015 and I went vegan (and haven’t looked back since). I never imagined I’d go completely vegan and at the start of 2015 would have laughed if you’d told me I’d be vegan in a year.
I also intended on spending more time practicing yoga but unfortunately that one got put on the back burner (I currently have the back pain to remind my why I shouldn’t have let that happen!).

So this is one of my new favourite pancake recipes. I LOVE pancakes- it’s become a Sunday/Weekend tradition for my boyfriend and me to treat ourselves and have pancakes. This recipe isn’t one of my most healthy, but it also isn’t that unhealthy, especially if you make it with my strawberry puree instead of adding sugar or maple syrup.
Let me tell you right now and save you years of trying shit, fad diets like I have, THEY DON’T WORK. Juice cleanses, detox teas, diet pills, wraps and ridiculous bone crushing corsets might work in the short term, but you can’t keep that shit up. It’s simply not sustainable (and not good for your body). So learn from mine and millions of others women’s mistake that the only way to lose weight is to eat healthy food you enjoy and move your body on the daily.
Where to Start:
There is so much conflicting advice given to the public about how to lose weight, it’s understandable that even some of the most savvy fitness freaks can get confused about what they should/shouldn’t be eating or how they should be working out. If you have just decided to make a change and become healthier and fitter (yay for you!) it can be quite a daunting situation- should you be eating carbs after 6 or even at all? Should you completely cut out fat and sugar? Should you try the 5:2 diet? I have put together a basic guide to get you started- nobody needs to go on crazy crash diets to lose weight, you just need to eat the right foods, in the right amounts, within your calorie requirements and make sure you exercise too. So, you’ve taken a big step by deciding to lose weight so I have decided to do the same by sharing with you something that is a little scary for me…my before picture. Continue reading →
