Originally back in January I wanted to start the year as I meant to go on and get fitter and healthier.. but with all New Years resolutions life got in the way. I could list a thousand excuses about why I didn't go back to the gym, why I kept eating biscuits and chocolate like I'd never see them again, but it all boils down to the fact I simply just wasn't in the right place. My motivation had been lost and my focus was on other things.

But since rebranding and starting up a few other things I said I would at the beginning of the year, I figured now was as good a time as any to get the ball rolling with some personal improvements.

I used to love exercise, going to the gym and way back when in 2015 took on the challenge of running a Half Marathon for Cancer Research. Crossing the line I cant describe the feeling of accomplishment I got from doing something that so many said I was crazy for even attempting. Now, I want to rekindle my love for exercise and running, I want to be able to reignite the fire in me that propelled me to cross the line that day, like I know I can.


To keep myself accountable, I'll be sharing my journey to a healthier and stronger lifestyle here on KylieHadfield. Ive decided not to stick to a strict regime of certain days due to the fact that I work weird shift patterns, meaning I cant attend the gym on the same day at the same time each week. I didn't want to have to rule out gym classes, so when one is available and I'm not working or have other engagements I'll be attending what I can, where I can. Ill also be throwing some short and long distance running in as well, to hopefully help both my mental and physical health.

Ive always enjoyed different styles of dance, so I purchased the CIZE dvd by Shaun T an absolute age ago but never got around to sticking to it. So yes, you guessed it, thats coming into play too. Ive also been a fan of Kayla Itsines for a VERY long time and have previously completed her 12 week BBG routine and know how good it is, so I'll be trying to fit some of her workouts in too when I feel like I need that extra push in the gym.  I wanted to vary up my workouts in the hope that my body would keep guessing and I wouldn't become bored of the same routines.


Now this I'm going to keep short and sweet - I'm going to follow the idea of everything in moderation. I won't be limiting myself to not eating certain foods, just less of the foods that aren't as good for me. Ill be keeping a close eye on calorie intake vs calories burned, to ensure I'm not over indulging. My body at the moment is very good at storing what it doesn't need, its also currently in the Overweight category for my BMI. That doesn't sit well and I need to get back to where I should be, I feel like I now have all the tools and help I need to get where I want to be.

Keep an eye out for posts in the very near future including all my starting out measurements and how I'm getting along with it all. Feel free to join me and keep me up-to date with your own progress in the comments section or via social media! Lets be each others inspiration!

Who else is hitting the fitness bandwagon with me for 2019?
