Lauren Loses It | Weigh in #2

Well hello there...

It's time for another 'Lauren loses it post!' - if you missed my last post, have a nosy here. 
I hope you are enjoying these weight loss posts, let's get started!

*I just wanted to quickly say; I am not a nutritionist, healthy eating expert or fitness expert, I am not saying that I work out 7 days a week for hours at a time, starve myself or deny myself anything.
I am just trying to be healthy, do some exercise and lose weight, and bring you lovely lot along for the journey!*

I have been working out at least three times per week, I have actually been using the Just Dance game on the wii console, quite a lot.
I find it's great for cardio, burning calories and having a good ol' fashioned boogie!
Who says exercise can't be fun?
I have also been doing sit ups, lunges and squats, to try and tone my stomach and thighs. 
I have noticed that my calves are looking more toned and my legs are looking slimmer. 
I hated my legs so much before I started my weight loss journey, I think they were the worst part of my body. 
I have a long body and short legs, so they looked very chunky and wobbled a bit too much!
I am happy that I am starting to love my legs more!

Food and Snaps from the week
Here are a few snapshots of my meals and snacks from the past few weeks; If you would like to see more, you can follow me on Instagram (Link at the bottom of this post)
