I think my ‘get fit ‘ endeavours would be a lot more fruitful if we didn’t have weekends.
Most of my weekends consist of no exercise and a WHOLE lot of junk food. I stay slap bang in the centre of town, and this results in a trip to the roll shop for breakfast. Plus, I stay with a skinny malinky who has a BIG appetite. Add this to the fact that I have no will power. Especially when he offers to go out and get it.
I also tend to eat one takeaway a weekend, normally a Chinese as a hang-over curer.
The sensible side of me knows how wrong this is. I know that my body needs nutrients and goodness, but up until now I have been too weak. The lure of convenience gets me. And the taste. Do all Chinese meals contain monosodium glutamate? If so, I have a problem.
There. Step 1. Admitting you (I) have a problem.
Previously I’ve thought, what the hey, I’d be eating this if I WASN’T exercising, so it doesn’t really matter.
The truth is – if I want real results I need to make real changes. Not just Monday to Thurs (more realistic than Friday..) changes.
Ok. I’m on it. I can do this, and my time is NOW.
My Food Challenge for this month is to not buy a breakfast. I have to make it myself. Cereal, eggs, toast; whatever. As long as it’s not a cooked breakfast roll from a cafe. EASY.
On a side note, I was hoping to go swimming today and practise my new skills I was off for the bank holiday. It was so dreich and dreary… by the time I walked half way to the pool I had puddles in my shoes. I didn’t really fancy changing back into my wet gear after swimming, so I came home, took this photo as proof of the wetness:
I completed one workout from the 30 Day Shred instead.
Looking forward to running tomorrow, come rain or shine.
