Well, it is helpful to have an online community to do this healthy-lifestyle thing with rather than striking out on my own, so I'm glad I stumbled across it - good old nhs
I have had a successful first day!
I realise I am going to find it challenging to stick to correct portion sizes! I'm pretty sure that that is the main reason why I am heavier than I'd like to be/should be... (that and all the cakes, chocolate etc!!)
Today I ate:
B: 1 boiled egg with slice granary toast & spinach
Snack: handful nuts and a carrot
L: vegetable stir-fry with noodles & apple
S: chickpea curry with couscous, carrots and rocket
Then I made myself 'nice-cream' which is just a whizzed up frozen banana with a spoonful of cocoa and a splash of milk - I find it a good enough substitute for the real thing
I also did 30 minutes weights, so when I head off to bed I shall enjoy putting ticks on my little chart!
It is a great plan, all very sensible. But that's not my problem - I generally start well on these things, it's the keeping going that I struggle with! I'm pretty confident I will get through week 1 fairly smoothly... it's what happens after that which I am less optimistic about.
Still, I have found the 'before and after' stories on here very motivating, so hopefully this forum will help me stick with it!
