Self discovery!

So what started as a little hiatus turned into a full on year plus break from blogging, and you know what I think it may have done me the world of good. I'm back with a fighting spirit ready to get back into blogging and I hope you'll stick with me for the ride - as I may be shifting focus from solely beauty. 

I've never really delved into personal stuff on the blog but let's just get straight into it, I found my weight creeping up and I think I just put it to the back of my mind until one day I thought enough was enough and I needed to make a change. So what started off as a simple change in my food habits and joining Slimming World I found myself becoming so focused on wanting to hit my target and a part of this change was also discovering a new found love for fitness. Yes I used to be that girl that would go to the gym walk on a treadmill for 30 minutes and felt that I'd worked out - not anymore you can not get me away from weights! I started my journey at the end of September and I've noticed how the power of the mind has such a big impact on your journey and helping you achieve your goals.

Now five stone lighter I feel like a new version of me - I had to include the embarrassing before photo above - whilst I'm still discovering this new person I'm having fun along the way and learning to live life to the fullest. I'm a full on gym addict - you can never get me out the place, but saying that I have met so many amazing people there who are full of support and believe in you, and I even took part in Tough Mudder this past weekend! A 12 mile muddy obstacle course, which was one of the best things I have ever done! I have definitely caught the mudder bug!

So when it comes to CharmedCharlee I will still be blogging about beauty but I think I'm going to incorporate more fitness and food into my good ol' blog!
