I have had an enjoyable week, towards the end of it I was at a conference in Manchester and the food was superb but there was far too much of it and of course I indulged. By the second day I felt pretty sick and had indigestion as well as a sore throat and headache. I think I have literally overdosed on food to be honest.
So I woke up Saturday and I vowed to be different. I ate 3 meals, I had nothing but half an apple in between and I was a misery guts. I really do go through withdrawal when I cut down, my kids and the friend I had round probably wondered what on earth was going on. Mich feeling run down and cutting out unhealthy foods is not a particularly attractive sight. But it is short lived and of course worth it, I'll get beyond it and I will be 'in the zone' and then I can start to shift some weight and head towards the healthy weight that I should be.
On 2nd January I posted here like I do most Mondays and I made some commitments and said I wanted to shift about 4 stone before BritMums Live, that is now only 10 weeks away and when I weighed today I see that I am only 1lb lighter than I was back then. 17 stone 8lb is a very hefty and unhealthy weight.
Things must change......
Here is what I need to do -
- Be in bed for sleep by 11pm each night
- Eat 3 meals a day and only healthy snacks in between if anything
- Before I pick any food up, really question myself if I am hungry or if I'm eating on emotions or feelings
- Exercise a minimum of 3 times a week
- Pray every day and remember to hand my eating problems over to God
I am not re-inventing the wheel, there are no great surprises here, it is just a reminder for me of the things to do, the things that work for me.
Praying you all have had a great week. Mich x
