Newbie

I registered a while ago, think I posted my introduction post and then didn't post again 🙈but im really struggling at the moment and needing inspiration.

I'm Lynsey, live in leeds with my hubby and two kids, 6 and 3. I'm 28, 5'8" and ten stone exactly on last weigh in. I'm new vegetarian and trying to stick to veganism which is going well so far originally decided to go vegan for a detox in January but I watched a documentary a few weeks ago and I'll never touch meat or animal products again.

I'm also a kickboxer, I'm trying to get to a point where I can complete professionally. I need to lower my body fat and then build lean muscle. I've also got to be a bridesmaid for my friend in Mexico in May and my dress is a little tighter than Id like lol 😂so really hoping I can loose a little and tone up in time for that so I feel confident on the beach and in the photos.

At the moment I see my personal trainer once a fortnight and then train at kickboxing once or twice a week though the rest of the time I'm admittedly pretty lazy 😣 I'm trying to change that though haha I'm really bad for comfort/junk food also so really need help getting past that 😁

Nice to meet everyone 😊hopefully I'll be around for a bit longer this time haha!

Hello again Mrs hope we manage to keep you this time haha

What are you doing with your PT to reduce body fat % or is that your kickboxing trainer too?

You do really well

Yeah my kickboxing instructor is also my pt I have a couple of bits and bobs from him I'll try and put them on this post... At the moment we are working on my kickboxing because I've got a grading next week but then we are working on my back strength because it's really weak and he thinks that I'll be able to do better once that's sorted.

Hi lovely! I watched earthlings a few weeks ago and again last night, broke my heart completely. I have watched a few other documentaries though on YouTube I can't remember what exactly though. finding veggie has been fine so far, vegan is ok, but eggs seem to have a habit of sneaking into things lol 😣 I'll get there I'm sure 😊 nice to 'meet' you!
