Start of a new journey - day 3

Good morning everyone, hope you're all doing ok. So I've had a busy morning, school drop-off, dentist and then my second session in the gym!! Yesterday I was over 400 calories under my limit, and yes I was very honest about the roast dinner and packet of crisps I ate!! Thought I would wake up hungry this morning but I didn't!?! The gym went really well this morning, I managed 55 mins of cardio and 40 of strength, and I've already completed my 10,000 steps for the day!! My 12 year old son commented that I seemed a lot happier the last couple of days (I suffer from depression) so that must be a positive thing. I've also gone 3 hours without a cigarette (shocked face) and it wasn't the first thing I wanted when I got home, I wanted food (25g almonds and a banana). Am trying a new way to give up smoking, I don't take my cigarettes out with me, so the longer I'm out the house the longer I go without one! Cutting down slowly instead of trying to do to much at once and failing. How are you all doing today? x

  • Hi Rosie,

    Wow, you've had a busy morning! Great that you've done your 2nd gym session already. Glad it went really well. It's lovely that your 12 year old noticed and commented that you're feeling happier - that is a positive thing!

    Fantastic news re: the smoking too - really well done.

    I'm doing ok, had a busy morning too, but going to have some lunch now, so nice to have a break and something tasty.

    Have a great day!

    Lowcal :-)

  • Thanks for your support Lowcal :-) enjoy your lunch x

  • Wow, busy morning! Well done with the smoking, I stopped smoking 16 months ago so I know that's tough. Pleased you are feeling better and that it's noticeable too!

  • Thanks Caz 🙂 Well done for going 16 months as a non smoker. I hope to get there one day x

  • Hi Rosie! I'm impressed that you're quitting smoking as well as changing your diet at the same time. You must be really tough! :)

    I also was surprised when I first started the 12-week plan at how much better I felt not being overly stuffed full all the time. And I'm always amazed at how much more energy I have after a swim. Seems like it would be the opposite.

    Glad you're doing well and I have no doubt you can carry on as well as you've started. :D

    Feeling a bit under the weather today, but the lemsip helped and hopefully I'll get a better sleep tonight and be back on form tomorrow.

  • Sorry you're not feeling well ☹️ Hope you feel better tomorrow. I don't know about being tough - stupid maybe lol. We'll see how it goes 😉 X

  • Thanks. Feeling much better than I was this morning. Good luck! :)

  • So glad things are going well for you 😊 Very well done 😊😊😊

  • Thanks Anna x
