Who am I? And what do I want?

So I thought I should start with a little introduction!

Who am I:

  • I’m Sarah
  • Due my first little gremlin in October
  • I am 25 and will be 26 when my gremlin gets here
  • I am a geek
  • I love shopping
  • Obsessed with fruit salad
  • Originally from Yorkshire, now based in sunny Cyprus!

What do I want?

As a young women in today’s society it is so easy to feel pressured to be skinny, or feel that your body is not perfect or have so many hang-ups about it. This is what happened to me, 2 years ago I weighed around 79 KG’s and hated myself I set off on a mission to eat better and ease myself into a daily exercise routine – pre baby gremlin I weighed 59KG a proud goal I achieved through hard work, clean eating and sweaty training.

So what is the point of my blog?

After finding out I was pregnant I realised my body was changing (As of 08.04.2014 I am just over 14 weeks) so it isn’t a dramatic change, but as people keep telling me to be proud be happy with the changes ย in all honestly all I wasย thinking was I worked so hard to make my body something that I am finally happy with, it is now going to be ruined (Yes I know, for a very good reason!!)

Well we all know where negative thoughts like that get you….

Negative thoughts… do one!

With the above in mind I figured it was about time I found a healthy balance between keeping a great body while keeping my baby healthy & I thought I can’t be the only one feeling this was so I would share it.

I will share my pregnancy journey (including the not-so-delightful) stuff, I will also share my routine and fitness plans and I will also share my emotions and ideas along the way. ย I hope fellow mummy’s / mummy’s to be will join me and share their stories too!

    Hi Sarah! My name’s Becca and I’m 13 weeks and 1 day pregnant. I’m going to be 39 next month, but in my head I’m still just about 28…lol. I, too had lost about 10 kg before I got pregnant over a period of like 4 months. It was hard work and now I’m getting it back…lol. Well, hopefully it will just go straight to my belly…yeah, right ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m not exercising at all right now, but have a pretty healthy diet. I’m looking forward to your future posts ๐Ÿ™‚
