Yesterday I had a great day, I was working at home which is usually difficult because the kitchen is close by and food is easily accessible however I managed to stay away by drinking lots of water and thinking about what I want to look like in the future. I had arranged for a babysitter to babysit so I could go for a run with my neighbour in the evening but she unfortunately my neighbour could not make it so I motivated myself and managed to do a run in my lunch break on my own!!. I felt so much better for it and I do find that going for a run helps keep the hunger at bay too. I ran for 8 x 1 minute intervals with 1.5 minute walks in between. Last August I was running 5K but I let this lapse when the nights drew in in October. i am determined to keep it up this year and run at least 3 x times a week.
Today I was working in the office, I was really good this morning and had a lovely tub of ready prepared fruit for breakfast which I nibbled on during the morning. At lunchtime the whole team decided to go to the pub for lunch and the thought of watching everyone eat nearly drove me crazy and I ended up having a flatbread with cheese, tomato puree and rocket. I am not sure this was the healthiest thing to have and I did suffer with a tummy ache this afternoon.
My hunger started when I got home this evening. Within 5 minutes of walking through the door I had eaten 6 x mikado chocolate sticks and 2 x kallo chocolate coated rice cakes, I then had about 20 Olives. This is where I go wrong – the snacking MUST STOP!!
For tea tonight I will be having a bowl of mushroom risotto (on the Slimming World diet you can eat as much of this as you like).
Its weigh in tomorrow morning at Slimming World. I am confident I have lost some weight but I really am not sure how much. This is tough and harder than giving up smoking. For the last 3 x weeks I have lost 1/2lb a week. I want to loose at least 2lb a week.
The plan for tomorrow includes another run and its booked in my diary so I don’t miss the appointment.
