Back to Basics and back on the wagon!
Tuesday, April 26, 2011
As my status says, I’m going back to basics. I’m going to restart the 8 week diabetes challenge as it completely went out of my mind and I’ve had a terrible weekend – health wise.
I have not tracked. I have picked at the kids candy (they got Lindt mini-eggs!) and have not been drinking my water. On the plus side, the only positive, is that I have been exercising. I went swimming for 50 minutes yesterday, did some wii free step on Sunday, on Saturday I did some walking and on Friday we had a massive family walk that took about 2 hours with a couple of short breaks.
I haven’t been snacking after 9pm, although yesterday that was more by chance than by conscious effort!
So, back to basics. This week I will continue my exercise, track all food and make sure that I drink 8 glasses of water each day. I think I’ve probably messed up for my weigh in on Friday.. but perhaps I can still help to reduce the damage.
In a week we are going on our cruise. I’m really looking forward to it although I’m worried about the lack of tracking and all that food that I want to try... I must be strong and not waiver on my idea of asking for half serves as I’m already reconsidering that idea in my mind! I need to focus on October and looking fabulous!
I’m suffering a bit with a sore shoulder/back and a sore elbow. I will have to talk to my chiropractor about it on Friday at my appointment and also look into finding a good physiotherapist I think. It’s been slowly getting worse not better. I am trying not to pick up my daughters as much but my 2 year old (3 in October) wants to be picked up and cuddled all the time and I have to lift her to change her nappy(diaper). It’s also such a wonderful age when she wants to be picked up and hugged all the time... how can I stop doing that?!?
