Last weekend I went to Fiji to celebrate Kaipara's birthday and to kickstart my healthy lifestyle commitment. I knew I would be wishing I was fitter and smaller - and so I went to face the music.
This year has been so inconsistent for me, and it boils down to me not taking the time to centre myself DAILY.
YES, I have been incredibly busy at work.
YES, I have been busy with PACIFICA.
YES, I have been involved with my family and friends.
But a few months away from consistent exercise, combined with trying different eating fads (high fat, high protein, low carbs) has seen me balloon to 100kgs again
Over the past month, I've been thinking what else can I do? I need to stop this now! A plan has been unfolding in my mind (and actions) and this is what it now looks like:
REGULAR EXERCISE: At least 5 days a week.
- I will try new things to keep myself interested. (I am so happy to have started swimming lessons this week!
NUTRITION TRACKING: At least 5 days a week.
- My Achilles Heel is the volume of food I eat. Tracking enables me to account for what I am consuming. I accept that there is no magic pill and there is no easy diet that allows me to eat whatever I want. My healthiest sustainable solution will only be found through tracking my consumption until I am under control.
DRINK at least 2 LITRES of WATER each day.
SLEEP 7 hours each night.
