I've had a bit of a realisation this morning in regard to my eating habits. I got up & had my usual morning coffee (I only have 1 per day). I then went for a 45 minute walk with bubby followed by 2 whole minutes on the x trainer
. Had a shower & by the time I was dressed it was around 11am. I hadn't had breakfast. Without realising what I was doing I have been skipping breakfast pretty much everyday because subconsciously I've been thinking "you're supposed to be trying to lose weight, don't eat anything". Even if I have something healthy to eat I've been telling myself that I've "been bad" & as I've now ruined the day I then just eat whatever takes my fancy thinking "I'll start again tomorrow". How stupid is that!!? Tomorrow never comes!!! This morning after realising how silly I've been I made myself a whole grain sandwich with a little bit of low fat margarine, a slice of low fat cheese, pastrami, lettuce & mustard & I thoroughly enjoyed it
. I also shared an apple with bub. I guess I need to stop obsessing about food & just eat & not think about it so much if that makes sense. I'm not a stupid person, I know what I need to do to lose this weight and start being healthy & happy again but why do I sabotage myself all the time? It's crazy how we all do this!!! There are a million diet books on the market & I will admit that I've bought a few different ones over the years but when you think about it it's quite simple really. Eat vegies, fruit, salad, low fat dairy, lean meat, some whole grain foods, drink water, have treats every now & then & do 30 - 45 minutes of exercise every day. From now on I will eat breakfast & allow myself to eat healthy food without feeling guilty.
