For anyone who’s been following my Instagram feed, you’ll have noticed that there’s recently been a rise in drool worthiness with plentiful doughnuts, biscuits and cake.
Frankly, that needs to stop (sorry). The yummy, delicious… yet fattening habits that I’ve got myself into need to stop.
When I look down, I see that I’ve somehow swallowed a rubber ring that’s got wedged around my stomach. Great for buoyancy in the water, but not so great for feeling fit and healthy.
So, I’ve decided that there will be NO binge eating in May… although my goodness that chocolate cake was GOOD! As in my plan for 2016, I need to lose some weight. So in May, there will be:
- No biscuits
- No cake
- No doughnuts
- No unhealthy snacks.
Other than my incessant snacking, I actually eat fairly healthily. But, I do need to exercise more too. On days when I’m at home, I need to make sure I go out for a walk even if the weather is rubbish. To the park or just round the shops if need be. Days when I’m at work, I need to start going on walks at lunch.
So I need to do this properly this time to live a happier, healthier life. It’s better in the long run if I get out of this habit of going to food when I’m either bored (at home) or because it’s there (at work). I’m going to have to find some determination to not have ‘just one snack’. As it’s never just one as I seemingly have no self control.
Officially, I’ll start this mission on Tuesday and I’ll be writing about my progress with weekly weigh ins (aaah!). I hope that by the time I go on holiday in June that I’ll have lost at least a few pounds. Shall we say 8lbs as a goal? Should be achievable in a month if I aim for a healthy 2lbs a week. I doubt I’ll achieve it, but anywhere close would be nice!
Although I hope that I don’t lose too much weight, as I really don’t want to have to buy yet more work clothes!
Wish me luck.
