Out at Lunch

Monday, April 23, 2012

I was out for the whole day yesterday but made sure that I had my staple breakfast before leaving the house.

Sticking to tea and avoiding cappachinos & hot chocolates etc that others were having I pushed on. The workshop I was attending was called "Deliver results in 100 days" and could apply to dieting as much as anything else. It was excellent, very inspirational. The 7 key points were as follows:-
1. Have a clear vision of success 2. Create a 100 day plan
3. Engage people & resources 4. Focus on key tasks
5. Take Action! 6. Review progress weekly
7. Deliver a winning mentality

After this it was straight into lunch, where most of the people I was with had enormous carvery dinners - meat, potato and vegetables. The amount of food on the plate was Supersize and it was good to realise that there was no way on earth I could manage it. In the past I would have had a very good attempt. I quickly looked for an alternative and chicken & brie toasted sandwich with salad was the best alternative. Proudly I insisted on extra salad and no chips but unfortunately this is not what arrived at my table. Thankfully the chip portion size was small enough so I enjoyed the unexpected treat. Pudding didn't enter my mind and I was impressed with how focused I was.

At the end of the afternoon, after a long but entertaining Toastmasters Division Speech Contest a cup of tea was very welcome. And I didn't even notice the sandwiches and biscuits on offer. In fact I was still quite full from lunch, which took me longer to eat that usual.

All great signs that I have come a long way in the process of losing weight and changing ny eating habits for a healthier lifestyle. I'm certainly getting there, that's for sure.
