10 in 10 series part 4: Where has my willpower gone?

Hey everyone,

It’s that time again for another update on my fat loss mission and to be honest this is a post I’ve been putting off! I really haven’t done as well as I would have liked over the past few weeks due to a breakdown in willpower and an increasingly busy schedule getting in the way of preparing super healthy meals for the week!

However, I can’t put it off any longer so here goes nothing I guess…


Bust: 35 inches (-0.5 from last update)

Waist: 28 inches (-1 from last update)

Hips: 35.5 inches

Arm: 12 inches

Thigh: 23 inches (-1 from last update)

Weight: 10st 0lbs

Fat percentage: Still hasn’t been taken but I must have lost some if my inches are going down right?

So it seems that I lose inches from my waist really easily but not quite so easily from my arms and stomach which is annoying as these are places I’d most like to lost them from, however, people have been saying I’m looking really slim and healthy so I shouldn’t complain!

However, I think most of these gains have come from exercising as my eating hasn’t been as good as it could have been due to various girly evenings, dinners out and days where I have no choice in my food, for this next week I am trying harder than ever before to really knuckle down and claw back some of the naughtiness I have let creep in over the past few weeks!

So like I said my eating hasn’t been the greatest! I know I’ve been saying for ages that I’m not feeling good (way too complicated to go in to here, but I am drumming up the confidence to write a post about this soon!) and so making effort to exercise lots and eat right has been really hard for me lately. I am still trying my best and think that healthier choices are becoming way more natural to me now, however, I’ve definitely been sneaking chocolate and bad snack in to my diet way more frequently the past few weeks and I think it’s purely to try and boost my dwindling energy levels! However, meals definitely look more rounded with far less carbs and way more low carb veg and proteins. If you want to see the kind of things I’ve been eating check out my Instagram for some pics I’ve been doing of my food 🙂 I’ll try to keep a food diary one week to show you everything I’ve eaten and snacked on in detail and write it all up here for you, but obviously for an easy glance just add me on MyFitnessPal!


So because I haven’t been feeling well, I also haven’t been exercising as much! I have still been going to the gym loads at the weekends, but after work sometimes I am just too exhausted to do anything, let along work out. I haven’t been able to make it to my yoga class at work because I’ve been so busy either, but I have been making loads of extra effort to walk more and have doubled my daily average steps which is so good!

I know this post is basically a load of negativity and excuses, however, I am still determined to get my goal but more importantly to be happy and comfortable with who I am. Sometimes I think my body conspires against me, but as soon as I am back to full health I am back on it with a vengeance and even until then I’ll keep trying my best because that is all you can do 🙂

Hope you are all doing well with your plans, I love to hear all about them!

Lots of love, Leanne xx

  1. Well done on your post! I’ve really enjoyed reading this as you seem to be in a similar place to me. The first step is getting the words on the page so you’re doing better than I am (mad scramble to get the last two weeks worth of workouts written up). Keep going, you’re doing great! Soph. Xx


      1. I’m the same (mainly because nobody actually read mine until I stopped calling them “day..” It keeps me focused on my goals though. If I don’t do it, I have to tell everyone I didn’t do it and then I feel ashamed. Nothing like a good guilt workout 😉 xx
