I’m not sure what happened, maybe I was just sick of feeling lethargic and a bit soft but yesterday I started making changes…
Nothing big or scary, nothing that took too much thought or any tracking but I did some things that were slightly different to recent days and already I feel better.
What did I do?
I DRANK MORE WATER – instead of my favourite guilt pleasure, diet fizzy pop, I ditched it for water instead.
I CONTROLLED MY PORTIONS – I was much more sensible about portion control and instead of thinking “I’m starving, I’ll fill my plate”, served up a smaller meal and it was definitely enough.
I BY-PASSED THE SNACK – I had a sandwich at lunch time but I didn’t get the usual extras I might have previously – no crisps, no afters. Just a sandwich and water.
I FILLED UP ON FRUIT – Oh my word, I forgot how satisfying and tasty a bowl of fruit is! I cut up some of my favourites – apple, banana, strawberries, melon, blueberries and grapes into a dessert bowl to trough on in the evening.
I WORKED ON MY BUSINESS – After Isla went to bed I sat and worked ON my business, looking at where I am, where I want to be and what I need to do. I would usually plonk my butt on the sofa and watch rubbish on TV or some instagram stories (Yey for Mrs Hinch).
These things all happened without me trying hard, feeling like it was a chore or like I was missing out.
I actually feel like I had a really awesome day!
Today I am going to continue with more of the same, keeping the above things going and making better choices, small changes to the things I normally do.
What choices will you make today that are good for you?
