Beach body required

In just over a months time we shall be jetting off on our first family holiday abroad, it’s certainly well needed but in my countdown I have now entered stress/panic mode.

Here in the not so sunny UK I have the comfort of big baggy winter jumpers and cardigans, they are my safety net but no quite so practical on a summer holiday. Less clothes, more skin on show, bathing suits, sweating, in all honestly it makes me feel a little apprehensive and nauseous. I have been sensible eating and drinking and adapted a healthier lifestyle but the weight loss is a slow burner, I didn’t intend for it to miraculously disappear over night, I needed to fix my eating habits first and foremost.

Lumpy Space Princess

I’m lumpy and bumpy in all of the wrong places and I don’t quite have the confidence of Lumpy Space Princess so now I mean business and I’m undertaking something which quite frankly scares the bejesus out of me…I’m saying goodbye to carbs. Carbs and I have a love hate relationship, I love fresh pasta and fresh bread but they are my problem.

Its not about a quick fix, I repeat it’s not about a quick fix and I admit it’s not going to be easy,  I completely understand that it’s not the sort of thing that suits everyone but it’s for me. I know myself how sluggish I feel after carb overloads.

I’d love if you can send me any of your low/no carb recipes or point me to any that you have tried.

I have the support of the Mr behind me and the determination to carry it through

Goodbye carbs….Pasta I shall miss you the most

  • Good luck, I think I would find cutting out carbs really hard. They form the basis of loads of my meals. As for not feeling quite beach ready I find those really lightweight sheer tunics are great for throwing on and feeling covered without making you feel too hot.
