Hey all, hope you are well.
So I weighed myself this morning, and was shocked as I’ve put a good few pounds on. I shouldn’t be shocked, I’ve had loads of alcohol, bbq and a chip shop fish and chips!
Well… life is life, I’m way to far into my journey to have not learned some lessons; 1) I know what to do, and I’m perfectly capable of doing so, 2) my “diet” is enjoyable and I’m never hungry, 3) my diet is great for my body, 4) I can get my fitness (such that it was) back, I just need to not be lazy, 5) I know not to give up, and indeed have not given up.
To be honest, I have absolutely no negative feelings. This old brain of mine has already kicked into gear, and helped me have a great day.
Yes I know I can only concentrate on me until Sunday, and then I’ll just try to manage, but after that I’ll have another week that’ll be all mine.
As we all know, life sometimes overalls our personal plans.
So, here’s how my days been.
Sleep – URGH! Way too many loo stops!
Fluid – 200ml of milk, 200ml pineapple juice, approx 1 litre of water, 1 can pepsi max.
Food – 40g natural nuts, 75g dried fruits, 1 cheese portion.
As Paul had done a long bike ride (50km) we had 5 bean baked beans and cheese on brown seedy toast for lunch. I grated far too much cheese, so about half went back in the fridge.
We had liver for dinner, swapping the bacon with healthier turkey rashers.
We’ve also had 1 square of dark chocolate.
All in all I’ve had all three dairy portions, all 5 (just about) portions of fruits and veg, daily portion of lentils and pulses, more than daily portion of nuts. Proteins eaten at each meal. So a good food day.
Exercise – I’m pleased with my walk today, it is true that my fitness level has dropped, it is also true I am still a lot fitter than a year ago. But the main reason for being pleased is that I got of my backside and I walked out the door.
Not sure how far I walked, my watch and phone don’t agree despite being linked, as you’ll see!
No idea if I walked 5.6km or 6.6km!
Anyway, that’s my day, speak tomorrow 👋
