Yes! A small triumph!
So I get back from the gym, to make my lunch, which I have remembered to actually bring today (!!) and I discover I have cheese in the work fridge! Not just a little bit either - a pack of processed cheese AND grated parmesan.
What do I do? Mmmm eat it! No! Give it away... mmm eat it. No! Give it away! So this goes on for a little while in my head before I make the bold decision of giving it away.
That felt so GOOD! Because I did it just for me, and I ignored my inner voice (the bad one) which is usually the undoing of me.
Now I know that I CAN do this, I feel really positive!
Day Two: Uh Oh!
Good stuff - Did 40 minutes on treadmill instead of 30 - Stuck to diet during the day Bad stuff - Forgot to bring my lunch - after all that preparation… so I improvised and bought a chicken salad, which was low fat at least - Was invited to an awards ceremony at the last minute, so I had some unplanned wine and cheese I don't feel discouraged though as they were both 'innocent' slip ups and not as a result of laziness or not being motivated. I'll learn from this!
When I get home from work my usual routine is to go straight to the fridge for a munch on cheese! So Day 2 when I got home I thought - how will I distract myself? So I ended up vacuuming, cleaning the floors, toilets, doing the dishes until my boyfriend got home and it was time for us to have dinner! Nicely done - I think the house will be VERY clean and tidy over the next 5 weeks! I also drunk lots of water to keep the tummy grumblings at bay...
Are you ready to go?
It's almost time to begin...
