here's Day Two
1. To eat slower
2. To drink 2 litres of water
3. To eat a new healthier breakfast
Well the day started really well with a healthy breakfast of Linseed bread, avocado and smoked salmon. Then off to try my troll heads on the kids at dancing and on to watch to showings of Legally Blonde, my daughters drama production. Then a familiar pattern fell into place. Time became really tight so I grabbed a quick wrap for the journey. In itself this was a good choice but eating it alone on the run left me half satisfied so by the time the show finished and we went for Dinner I was starving. (Starving = Poor choices and more food than you need)
My food choices became about the need to feel full and not the need to lose weight and so whilst I thoroughly enjoyed the meal it didnt really help my goal.
I don't want to spend all my time thinking about the negatives but Legally Blonde was a stark reminder of the simple things that become difficult when you are overweight. Wearing long boots, they wont go around my calves. Wearing a pink tracksuit, unless you want to look like a blamange. Skipping endlessly for 10 mins and not being able to wear a bunny suit, something i am highly unlikely to do but it would be nice to have the choice.
I believe that gaining understanding is going to be an important part of my success but i am only really going to succeed if the learning results in a helpful change in habits. So lets hope tommorow brings some positive action.
