Dear Body

I am writing to you just to let you know that there are going to be a lot of changes. I know I always say this and end up scoffing more McDonands than you can handle but this time I mean it, and I'm writing this letter to prove it. I have realised that although I am almost 19, I need to do things now in order to prevent you from failing on me in the future. I know I love those elderly car things that whizz down the pavements, but to be honest I love my active legs more.

I know that I respect your outside. I apply day and night cream religiously and I always remove my make up at night (except for last Friday where I was so tired I fell asleep dressed and fully made up, only to wake up at 3am and say something to Aiden along the lines of 'need...make up wipe.. now') and I'm a Factor 15 girl, but if my insides were on the outside, then it would not be pretty at all. I don't even want to imagine what is going on..

This letter is a promise to you that I will change my habits. I won't be a five a day 5 mile jogging girl straight away, but I will be healthier.

I vow to:

- Keep a food diary
- Buy a skipping rope and skip for 20 minutes a day NO EXCUSES.
- Walk my lovely dog every day. (unless I'm not at home obviously)
- Drink 1L of water a day.
- Do 50 sit ups a day.
- Have no more than one takeaway a week.
- Use the graze box voucher I have.
- Make better choices when eating food.

So, body, I hope that if I respect you, you'll reward me with a nice toned stomach and legs that I can bare to the world this summer (subtly!)

Love from,

Me. :)
