Day 3 back on track with my weight loss journey. Today's been good and difficult. I was good for breakfast and lunch, had 3 plums, 1 banana, a small breakfast bar and 1 small bowl of carrot soup altogether, drunk half liter of water and had 2 instant coffee. Walked about 40 minutes. Got invited to stay on for dinner in a friend's, so not able to calculate calories. Not regret it at all, it was a really nice meal, delicious and mostly healthy food. Had some clear soup, 1 piece of spare rib ( boiled), some boiled carrots, some steam eggs with spring onions and soy sauce, some boiled carrots, fried cabbage with mushroom, a few prawns and a bit mackerel, a mini muffin and a piece of home made cake. So I had quite a lot, and it's difficult to calculate calories, but drink water and soup has helped me to feel full quickly.
Planned to walk my son to nursery as part of weekly exercise, but weather forecast says heavy rain. So to plan ahead with my exercise, I'll do some cleaning, mainly mopping and hoovering, to burn some calories. As a mum with a 3 year old, I have to be creative with exercise, finding ones that can be built into my everyday life, enjoyable (with my son), with low cost or no cost (I work part time, so money is tight).
Here is a list of physical activities I do myself or with my son
running after my son when he cycles
any other ideas are definitely welcome !
