A healthy breakfast to start the day is essential. I can not skip breakfast when I am working. I mixed strawberry and natural low fat yoghurt, and added grated and sliced apple, kiwi, raisins and oats on top.

Not even a day after I had posted about my summer rules for keeping healthy and slim was I hit with a massive challenge I did not see coming. This was employment. In my head I thought if I actually had a job I would be too busy to even think about food but I was wrong. I think that potentially even today I broke ALL the rules. I definitely bought a chocolate bar, my cardinal rule number 1 and I said yes to a sweet treat, I drank a full fat coke, I didn't eat any fruit, I drank minimal water and have definitely just had a snack for the sake of it.
This is harder than I thought. I'm giving myself the excuse that I've been tires/too busy to be healthy but its a poor one.

So it was hot here in London today, finally! I feel like I have seen the sun since last summer. I was of course totally unprepared for the heat and potentially got burnt. I'm going to step up my game now summer has arrived and I can actually buy things other than boots and jumpers. Although tomorrow I start a little temp work so will be sat in an office all day, not great timing.

Ok, so the start of the summer has come and I still haven't got my act together when it comes to the aim of a banging beach bod. Obviously the body is the goal but being healthy is too. So far I've outlined a few rules to keep me in check:-
NEVER buy a chocolate bar (my vice is chocolate)
Only eat when you’re actually hungry (I tend to shnack... a lot)
Say NO if people offer you sweet treats (A toughie I know)
Drink more water
Exercise AT LEAST 3 times a week (3 may not sound a lot, but guys I'm going from zero times a week)
Eat more fruit
Losing a little weight but TONING and keeping healthy is even more important. I'm starting off with these rules but I will figure out a proper exercise regime and as I'm starting from essentially scratch I'll add to it each week so by the time my holiday comes I should be a pro! ..... I hope
So that I don't get lazy, I'm sending my rules to my it-girl friend who I know will keep me in check! Moral support/someone to tell you it straight it essential.

My summer began this week and it's going to be packed with all of the above, internship, job hunting, holidays so I need to get my shit together. Asap. Hopefully if I can get it together this summer and be an all round perfect gal. On the blog, while I'm striving for this pretty high end result of perfection, I'll share my experience and inspirations of what it means to be an all round it-girl. Stay tuned!
