Had a tough time of late. Got a stinky virus, my knees have been hurting and I have lost my focus. However, I have used my time to steadily build myself back up, get my head back in the game and start fresh plans. I am just going to build on healthy eating and add in each week until I have shaken the illness/injuries.
I have done so much thinking. Firstly, I have been thinking about how adopting a healthy lifestyle is a bit like going to work. When you eat, it is like earning money - you can earn your money in lots of different ways - perhaps doing a job that is boring but brings the money in (this to me is the food that gives you the calories but nothing else), then there are the jobs where maybe you are helping others or learning something as you work (foods that give you the calories but have other nutrients or are particularly filling). I will work on this analogy. Also, adopting healthy eating as a lifestyle is like embarking on a career. If you crash diet then you are doing a dead-end job that is going to be short-lived, whereas building skills and setting solid healthy foundations is like building a career that will take you into old age.
The other thing I thought about is what funny goals I have - so first off:
