…or not as the case maybe!
Confession time: My weight hasn’t changed since the beginning of the year.
I’m not gaining, which is probably down to my increased activity over the last few months, but I’m not losing either. And so it’s time for a re-start. One of my problems is that I think far too long term about weight loss (and everything else!), which makes it seem like a huge task. For me it would be far better to just concentrate on a day, or perhaps even a week at a time.
And so with a
lot of little trepidation I’m moving my weight loss/getting healthy campaign onto this site for the accountability. Yikes! I have a long journey ahead of me – I still can’t go a whole day without eating a bag of crisps! – but nothing ventured and all that
My first target (starting today), will be to record a WHOLE seven days of calories. Much like paying off my debt, where a spending diary highlighted just where I was over spending, a calorie diary should highlight where I’m over eating.
In preparation for my new start I went grocery shopping this morning and tried to fill the trolley with as many healthy, unprocessed food items as I could. Happily I (somehow!) avoided the cake and crisps aisle.
I’m keeping my eating plan fairly simple. Breakfasts will be porridge or bran flakes and toast. Lunches will be tuna salad, soup or sandwiches depending on where I am. Dinners will be as per my menu plan – tonight it’s salmon. For snacks I’m sticking to fruit and for drinks, it’s water or water. Apart from two cups of coffee in the morning I only ever drink water these days. See there’s progress, no more wine or gin!
I’ll be back later in the week with my progress (hoping there is some?!)
