I didn’t get home from work til late tonight – month end again blah blah usual stress and late days. I was determined to do somethng though so I changed into my kit before I had too long to think about it and headed off for a short plod.1.4m in 15 minutes, my legs were screaming the whole way around and even breathing was laborious, but I felt better by the end and at least I’ve done something.
I recieved an email with some more info regarding the 12 week trial today. I have to keep a food and exercise diary for a week starting tomorrow and then submit it to Bio-Synergy along with some measurements and goals. Now, let’s face it, I didn’t get to be the size eating lettuce leaves and carrots so I know I need to be truthful on the food diary, but I am going to find it hard. Those sneaky blueberry puffs stuffed in my mouth whilst I make a coffee, the quick half a sandwich I gobble before I got to running club on a monday, the sweets I eat in the car on long journeys – these are the foods/eating habits that make me fat. These are the reason I struggle – it’s unconcious eating. When I am aware of what I am eating – tracking it, weighing it, measuring it, I eat less. It’s the transition times, the standing up times, the inbetweeny times that add the calories that take me over my calorie allowance. And I wish I could say that only happens every now and then but it doesn’t. It happens daily. And that’s what I need to change. I hope that the next 12 weeks breaks down my old habits and encourages new ones that help me to achieve that.
