I will be writing daily for the first week or so and after that I shall be mainly sharing information, encouraging a confident outlook for your success and letting you know how I am getting on. Excuse lack of pretty photos I’ve had a busy day and I will always suggest to you that you do not over stretch yourself!
- you are keen to find the best time to sort out bad eating/drinking habits now that the summer is over?
- you have a schedule which does not allow Mindset to want to tackle something like this.
- you are able to stop and start when it suits you and you are just reading to see what I’m chatting about.
All things considered it does not mean that life need be duller in the Autumn. As for me I have had a great summer but I quietly suspected and fretted a little that I would need to take myself in hand once life had quietened down. I accepted that and put it to the back of my mind. I will admit I did wonder when the time would be right; I certainly wanted to start before October.
Today Wednesday Day 3 is Golf day. My match was at 9.30am. I had an Airbnb guest who fortunately decided to leave before breakfast so I got out to golf reasonably calmly. Herb was sharing tasks today so that was useful too.
After 9 holes I almost succumbed to a lump of fruit cake at the Halfway house. I kept looking at it. Checking what else was available but then just walked away. So I managed with my 3 carrots and 2 pastilles for 4 hours. Just shows you! If I had been greedy, not organised ( my 3 carrots!) and not keen to succeed I may have felt I could justify a little something.
Breakfast: Rolled Oats, strawberries , natural yogurt- small portion not my usual size, boiled egg and small piece of toast.
Treat: 3 Chantenay Carrots
Lunch: Golf Club Chef’s salad- mostly salad mix with some cut ham and an egg! No bread or chips offered and none asked for.
Dinner: Chicken stir fry with some Jasmine rice. I did not like the rice which I cooked- soggy. I also had a small corn on the cob with a teeny bit of butter.
Am I eating sensibly? I just know that I am eating less, omitting a fair amount of crap food and avoiding the wine. Time will tell. I am using Joe Wicks book which I gave a link to you yesterday. I will weigh myself on Monday. I hope to include a bad mouthed animal video to amuse you if I can find it online; it may be very relevant if there is not some change on Monday.
How do I feel?
A bit sluggish and my head is a bit uncomfortable, not pounding. I did not sleep well on night 3 but my sleeping sadly can be well dodgy. I’m hoping that this little exercise will help. I do say on one of my business cards that I can help you to get a better night’s sleep. I can certainly help when stress is an obvious element. I am hoping that this better eating malarky is perhaps what I need to do, as well as some of my own therapy; physician heal thyself and all that.
A lttle exercise: Close your eyes and ask yourself this question.
- Is there an aspect of my health which would benefit from my eating more sensibly?
The intuitive answer would have jumped into your head. You may or may not have dismissed your intuitive response but it would be there shouting to you, at least for a moment. That is IF you subconsciously believe that your health may be being compromised.
You on the other hand may not have a health concern just a concern that the lovely little black number is a bit tight. If that is you, then that can be enough to annoy the hell out of you too. It’s all relative.
