I actually thought of this post last night. I always end up thinking of something to write as soon as I try to sleep.
My goal is to lose 10lbs before summer.
I’ve slacked off my diet lately and ended up gaining so much weight. It was only when I saw a photo of myself yesterday that Irealised just how much it was I had gained.
To be honest, I feel heavy just walking about. I want to get back to the healthier me that I was quite a few years ago.
- No bread
- No tea
- No biscuits
- No take outs (well, maybe something from the chinese that isn’t so fattening…every so often. Can’t eat millions and say yea it’s healthier it’s fine)
- No eating after 8pm
- Vegetables than fruit (fruit is higher in natural sugars than vegetables so vegetables are healthier)
- Walk every day
- Do more exercises such as sit ups/push ups to tone up as well as lose weight
I’ve realised that the treadmill is boring. You’re not actually going anywhere so what you see gets so boring. I have asthma too so running isn’t great for me.
I’m cutting out bread and tea because they both make me bloat up. Tea also dries out my skin and I get headaches when I haven’t had tea in a while (like an addiction. After being off it for a week or 2 you can notice how much better you feel). I won’t eat after 8pm because it will really just be snacks and I don’t really have a need to eat after 8 anyway because I have dinner between 6 and 6:30 which is enough to fill me for the night.
Has anyone any advice on what would be helpful for me to lose the 10lbs?
Let’s hope I stay motivated!
