Decided i would start my own progress sheet to help keep me accountable. Tomorrow is my first week weigh in, and i'm looking forward to it. This week, i have decided that I am not on a DIET and will never be on a diet ever again. This is a lifestyle change. I have been on various 'diets' before, and of course it's the same old story....feel restricted and then binge (in a HUGE way). Then fall off the wagon altogether and put it all back on.
So, for the past seven days, i have been getting up at 5.15am and excercising for 45 - 60 minutes. I've set up a bit of a 'circuit' in the shed, where i have an elliptical trainer, rowing machine and a fit ball. I've been incorporating at least 20 minutes of 'interval' training in each morning, and the remainder of the time is a mix of rowing, squats, crunches etc. Every evening after tea i've been heading to the beach for a 45 - 60 minute fast pace walk.
My diet has been basically
Breakfast: All Bran with skim milk
Lunch: Tuna or chicken with green salad
Tea: Lean meat/chicken or fish with salad or steamed veg.
I've also been eating my meals on smaller plates.
Everytime i feel like a snack, i've had a big drink of water and waited 5 minutes, to find that i'm not actually hungry anymore.
I have missed one day of excercise, which was yesterday - and that was under medical advise as i have stiches and they advised me not to excercise yet. I might see how i feel later today, and try and fit in some excercise, just not so strenuous.
I'm looking forward to the weigh in tomorrow - which is a change from the norm!!!
