well i took the day off work today cos i had a massive migraine when i woke up. my left ear had been blocked since saturday morning, i had tried to get it fixed on monday but it was too blocked so they said to come back in 2 days. FINALLY got it fixed today so i can now hear again yay! pity the only sound i can hear now is a freakin lawnmower out the front!
i havent got my workout dvd yet, im soooo keen to get it! we went grocery shopping last night and got a frozen pizza and some pies and potato wedges and things - not really the best stuff to be eating. but i've started thinking that if im eating nothing but salads, steamed vegies and grilled chicken to try to lose weight, once i get those results, as soon as i start eating this other stuff again, it's just going to stack straight back on. everywhere i look, i keep seeing this 'everything in moderation' - and i think that is the best way for me to look at it. Yes, I can have my potato wedges, but i have to stop at a small portion size, and i have to work it in with everything else i eat in the day, drink lots of water (which i am still doing - got up to 2 and a half bottles yesterday, omg!) and EXERCISE! since this is going to be a complete lifestyle change, it will be mostly good eating, with 'sometimes' foods thrown in there. i can't cut it all out completely because i'll miss it and binge and that is not a good thing to be doing. i know this is all stuff that i should already know, but i feel like a light has just turned on inside me and it's making more sense. i can have my 'cake' (or wedges) and eat it too, in a way, and it makes the whole journey to shedding the kgs a lot less daunting and stressful if i know i'm not necessarily denying myself these things, but rather moderating how much of them i have. if that makes sense. hehe.
anyway, thanks for reading my rambling!
