Healthy Lifestyle Changes – Food for Fitness – 30 Day Fat Loss Challenge

So January is here again and yet again I found myself over indulging during the festive period (will I ever learn?! 🙈).  This year is a big one for me and with a wedding in December, I want to start making some healthy lifestyle changes – so that I can avoid a last minute crash diet, but still look my best come The Big Day 👰🏼
