Hello all, super early post from me today, but a busy evening coming up so I'm worried I'll forget if I don't do it now!!
Anyway, welcome to all, regulars, you know what to do, newbies, follow their lead, post what you plan to eat on Saturday with calories if you're calorie counting, any exercise you've got planned and any tip you'd like to share.
My poster today is based on my thoughts following a post by HappyBeee about making excuses which led me to thinking about how to change your mindset. After six months I know that I've started changing my eating habits but am still a long way from making them part of who I am. But I have occasionally seen some signs that it is coming, so my plan is to keep doing the things that work over and over again. So, I plan my meals, over and over again, I talk to myself when I'm upset and standing in front of the biscuit cupboard over and over again, I put on my trainers and go out in the cold over and over again, and hope that one day all these things just become part of who I am. They already are a little. So, my message today, is don't give up just because you get things wrong sometimes. You've just got to keep doing the right things over and over again and eventually, it'll become part of who you are. No quick fixes for habits built up over years!!! They have to be replaced slowly.
Menu for my manic Saturday:
B - mince pie porridge! 300 cals
L - ham and cheese omelette with salad 400 cals
D - chicken curry, veg curry, samosa, bit of rice, popadom and mango chutney. 700 cals
Total - 1400.
Exercise - brisk walk in the morning, running around doing everything that needs to be done all day!!
Happy Saturday all.
