On The 2nd Day of #Fitmas My Mother Gave To Me...

... a huge bag of fruit and veg from Aldi including every single thing I can't stand normally and will refuse to eat...
I guess I just ruined the fun of that Christmas Carol.
But it's time to embrace the healthy food.

Yesterday I joined the #FITMAS army in our mission to get healthy before Christmas.
Corinne has organised Fitmas, and you can go over to her blog to find out all about it!
{Just want to say a big thanks to you, Corinne, for getting us all inspired}

I have started in full swing with a kick up the butt from a three day detox.
Up until I started Uni I was SO fussy with my eating.. I still am fussy now just nowhere near as bad.
I wouldn't have touched any of this 'healthy shit' but by putting it into a juice it makes it nicer to eat and is a great way to get some healthy-ness into your body.

I've made it through 2 days now but my god is it hard! I'm glad I didn't chose to do 5 or 7 days!
I'm sitting here dreaming of a Miller and Carter steak...

These are my fruit and veg for the day!
I had a smoothie and a juice; 'Turbo with a Kick!' and 'Minty Sunshine'
Both of which are Jason Vale recipes, I've blogged about him before but if you're into all this healthy food loving stuff, apparently he's some kind of healthy guru...

Minty Sunshine
2 Oranges, 3 Carrots, 4 Sprigs of Mint and 2 slices of Ginger
I doubled this to make enough for the whole day,
Just whizz it through the juicer!

Turbo... with a Kick!
2 Apples, 1/2 Celery Stick, 2 Handfuls Spinach, 2-3cm Cucumber,
1/2 Peeled Lime, 1/4 Pineapple, 1 slice Ginger and 1/4 Avocado.
Juice everything accept the avocado and then blend that in separately.

I doubled this too as you have 2 smoothies and 2 juices a day.

Both of these drinks were lovely, the minty sunshine has always been a personal favourite...
although I have to say I am missing solid food!
Roll on Thursday, I've never been excited for porridge before.

And I had cute New Look cups to get me through! 
I also bought 9 BAR's and Nākd. bars as a push through the times when I get hungry.
Amazingly I haven't needed them yet, I'll give a review when I try them!

For today's exercise I started the Couch to 5K programme unfortunately in the rain - you can download the 'Get Running' app on iTunes.
It slowly builds you up from interval training to running 5K in 9 weeks, which is too long for Fitmas but at least I'm starting now and hopefully come January I will be able to do it.

I wore my new running trainers, which I bought from the Missguided 'Active' range as I wanted something more supportive than my tatty old converse I used to do exercise in and I thought I'd try them out before I spent more money on more expensive ones.
Missguided sell these Active trainers in two different colours; Grey Contrast and Neon Pink Contrast.
Both are priced at £20.

As an honest review, they didn't hurt my feet and supported them well but they let in so much water my feet were absolutely drenched and soggy - that's not cool and didn't make the experience very enjoyable.
They also didn't look as nice as more expensive brands of trainers as they didn't fit the ends of my feet properly and were slightly baggy!
I am going to continue using them so I can decide if I like them more, only time will tell if they were worth trying...

Are you trying Fitmas?

    1. They are really hard but it's something you eventually get used to - I felt really good doing it and then got poorly after I finished and went back to eating crap - I ruined Fitmas :(
