So here's to day one:
1. To walk for 30 mins
2. To cut down to half a teaspoon sugar in tea
3. take my measurements
My Start measurements: in inches
Top legs left 29 Right 30.5
Calves 19 19
Arms 15.5 15.5
It was a pretty bland start to the challenge, I had to keep reminding myself I was trying to to change things. I didn't manage to walk for 30 mins today but I spend most of the day on my feet moving furniture in my daughters room so i feel like I had a good dose of physical activity. As you can see I took my measurements it's quite scary writing it down and realising that the top of my legs are the same width as some peoples waists. I need to keep focused on what I can achieve and not get bogged down with what I have done to myself to date. I started the day well cutting down my sugar but then went to a meeting in the evening and didn't think to inform people that I had cut down my sugar and so people made my tea as they had always done. All in all quite a positive start.
I had a spare half an hour so I decided I would make an effort and curl my hair, I was surprised by the reaction I had from people. Have I really started to pay so little attention to my appearance that it comes as such a big shock when I make an effort.
Moments of weakness:
All in a moments whim I remembered that I had a bag of malteasers in my bag within 15 seconds I had found, opened and eaten them. I can remember thinking to myself that they were a bit stale yet I continued to eat them. ( Exercise in stopping to think in the moment)
Onwards an upwards as they say,
