Right,the boyfriend is back in wellington and I am back to my usually scheduled programming. I used him as an excuse to relax on my eating and exercising, and I need to be sure that when he moves up I keep my timetable and don't fall into bad habits. I'm sure it will be fine, but I need to be mindful of how my habits are changing to accomadate a new person in my life. I am going from being single for 6 months (and being ignored and uncared for for years before that) to living with a partner. I have been used to doing my own thing and not having to consider someone else, so it will be a change!

So today I am doing things right. I've eaten very little junk food, healthy meals, and I went to the gym and did my weights for just under an hour. A good start :) plus I did the food shopping and I made sure to get healthy dinners for the week. Tonight we are having tacos, but I grate zucchini into the mince so it is fully of veggies before the lettuce, tomato and cucumber go on at the table. I am using turkey mince since it is lower in saturated fat. Also on the menu this week is a stir fry, lamb steaks, and build your own burgers (I build my own pita, less calories/carbs.

Back on track, and hopefully the scale will be kinder to me this week

    Oh, I like the idea of adding zucchinni to the mince! What a clever idea! Do you make your own seasoning for the mince as well? Does DBF like to cook also?? Should be fun!!

    Awesome job! It will be quite the adjustment when you have someone else to think of all the time but I know you can do it!

    Good girl. I had a week that started out great, but eating with friends got to me, and I have to do better today.

    The boyfriend is a fan of after dinner walks, and he is thinking about joining the gym to do weights with me :) should be great

    Great job recognising the need to do things differently early in your soon to be co-habitation :-) Hopefully your boyfriend will do a bit of exercise with you. I love having my husband around to spot me when doing weights at home or coming to fitness classes. Nothing better than having him as a boxing partner when I'm pissed off at him! ;-)
