Day one is over. I have been full all day long. You would too when you ate as much as I did!
It was not as hard as I thought it would be although the 3pm sugar craving hit my hard & it was horrible. I though that I could just beat it with sheer will power alone but I couldn’t. I started the day with an apple & that is also what I used to satisfy the sweet 3pm craving. I can’t believe that it worked! I was so proud of myself! At one stage I had gone to the pantry & had a moment where my hand was on a block of chocolate. I couldn’t believe that I was going to give in. I didn’t give in. The apple did the trick.
When the girls had finished afternoon tea & had a bit of a relax, we headed off on a walk around the block. We loved it, the dog loved it & it will now be an everyday thing (as long as it doesn’t rain!).
I weighed myself today. I new that I had to have a starting weight. It was not nice. But looking at the numbers on the scales, I knew that it was going to be the last time that they would ever be that high. I am now more determined than ever that those numbers will decrease. I have a very realistic goal of losing 1kg a week for 4 weeks. If I lose more than that is a bonus. I don’t ever want to set unrealistic expectations that will not be achievable. I think that is the key. If you set unrealistic goals, you will constantly be disappointed. I want to be proud of myself, not upset with myself. I am only going to set monthly goals. It will not always be about weight. Next month I want to be able to go for a walk for 1 hour. That is double what I do now.
What are your goals?
