It’s been a long week.
It’s been hot.
I’ve been hormonal.
But that’s what got me here – and I’m trying the mantra: If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got.
So Monday I managed a short run but that was the only time I stepped on the treadmill. I did do a little more walking as Munchkin is in school so I came home via the scenic route and I definitely managed more housework, so was a little more active indoors too.I started off eating well but by the weekend (with three family birthdays and two parties) I ate way more than I should and I drank way more than I should.
But this time I was aware.
Instead of shovelling it in without a second thought, I was aware of what I was eating.
I got on the scales this morning and there has been a 2lb loss!
I feel spurred on.
This afternoon I bought some meal replacement sachets that you mix with milk because I’m an ‘all or nothing’ kind of girl and can’t do food without overindulging. I have also planned some meals so that I won’t go crazy, realise I’m hungry and eat a block of cheese grated over half a kilo of pasta(!)
And I WILL get on the treadmill more. I can’t promise I’ll be managing more than a mile at a time just yet as my stamina is in my boots but I CAN promise to do it more often!
And I’m making that promise to you. And to me.
So, come along for the ride and let’s do this together!
