I did the jog this morning and bumped into a friend...."come on who on earth takes their dog for a walk at 4.30 in the morning?", anyway didn't feel too bad but had to stop and say hello but only for a minuite and I pushed a bit harder the rest of the way to make up for it.
Today is shopping day and the intention is to swap most of the bad food for good food so the shopping list has got to change, fresh fruit & veg, low fat items, no pop (soda), definitely no chocolate or biscuits (cookies) or foods with lots of sugars, this my friends is going to be a tough challenge but I'm ready for it.
I started the tracking food this morning so hopefully I can stay on track and if I don't then I've no-one else to blame but me!
The poor dog doesn't know what's hit him he's never been dragged out for so many walks in his life, now he spend the rest of his time indoors fast asleep. So when I grab the lead now instead of getting all excited and running around I swear he rolls his eyes back and thinks "on no please God not another walk, she's killing me!", :)
I suppose the hubby will have good whinge that I haven't bought any munchies as he like to call them but what he doesn't realise is that if they're there then I'll be tempted to eat them, it's ok for him he's got a physical job and he doesn't put the weight on like I do, although he could stand to lose a couple of pounds. Well unfortunately he'll just have to lump it and munch on a carrot stick or two instead :)
So I went shopping without it being to much of a challenge and I bought mainly healthy food, the usual salad, veggies, fruit, yogurts etc.
Had a piece of melon for a snack instead of a biscuit, water in place of coffee because if I have a coffee I automatically reach for the biscuits. Not actually feeling hungry at the moment and my tummy usually thinks my throats been cut at this time of day.
After a healthy lunch and tracking what I've eaten I took the dog for his walk, came back emptied the dishwasher I felt a really strong craving for a cup of coffee and some chocolate bit I didn't give in I came and blogged about it hoping it's going to help, it seems to be taking my mind off of it for now. I've got to recondition my mind into wanting something more healthy although a little bit of something sweet and naughty isn't always a bad thing but I know if I give in straight away it won't stop at being a "bit".
I managed to keep my chocolate craving at bay all afternoon but had two hot chocolates when I took my granddaughter climbing but I wasn't worried as I'd been good all day. Of course Tuesday night is bike night at Scarcliffe and they serve pie, chips mushy peas and gravy, so I thought "well, if I have pie, mushy peas and a bit of gravy it shouldn't be too bad", so I sought of behaved. I was bought a J20 Apple and Raspberry and couldn't very well say "no thankyou", I was starting to worry that I'd gone over my daily intake but to my surprise after tracking everything I was actually under.....was so relieved, so far so good just hope now that it long continues.
