Pregnancy was one long excuse to eat cake, as far as I was concerned. A few months after T was born, I weighed myself. It was bad, worse than I thought. I was technically obese, with a BMI of 31. Over the course of a year, I managed to lose 2 and a half stone using this calorie counting site/app. It wasn't always easy but it was fairly straightforward, and I had a steely determination to do it.

Since then, for the past year, I've been gaining and losing the same 4 or 5 pounds (probably due to my well-documented love of cake), and it seemed like something different had to happen. So I've been setting my alarm for 6am, three times a week, and heading to our local park for bootcamp - 45 minutes of circuit training. It's been tough but also (weirdly) enjoyable. 

I weighed myself yesterday and I'm back in the healthy weight range - hooray! I don't recognise the person who is actively choosing to get up early and do press ups, squats and burpees (yuck) in all weathers, but I am quite proud of her.
