#Blogtober2018 Day 4 : What I’m Giving Up For October
What I’m Giving Up…
To help me feel more committed to my health I am turning to my blog for inspiration and my readers for support. I know I can loose weight, and I can loose weight well, I have done it before and I can do it again. I can usually do it just making better decisions and changes.
So here’s what I’m going to do for the rest of October;
Alcohol – I’m going dry! There’s no more alcohol for me whatsoever this month, I actually hope this is something I can continue for longer than the month as I know I do feel much better all round without having a drink the night before. I feel more alert, less “foggy” and more energetic.
Crisps – I absolutely LOVE crisps, these are my life nemesis. I like crisps because of their crunch and saltyness but they need to go! For October at least.
Chocolate – Now don’t get me wrong, I like chocolate just like the next person but I have never eaten much of it. I can easily go weeks without chocolate but this past 48 hours i’ve had a giant Kit-Kat and a Cadbury Dairy Milk… my body seems to be shouting and craving it… it’s got to go!
Bread – Well toast to be exact, I love nothing more than 2 slices of white toast in the morning with margarine. I know that’s going to become an issue tomorrow morning so I’m going to SWAP my white bread for wholemeal and just keep to 2 slices a day.
Takeaway food – Yep, this is the main crux of my problem. Because we are a busy family, 3-4 of our weekly evenings are taken up with archery commitments. I feed the kids before we go but I usually wait until we get home for my tea, of which can be 8-9pm and the last thing I want to do is cook. So you guessed it, we fall into the local Chinese take away, armed with my chicken and mushroom curry (or sweet and sour chicken) with egg fried rice and spare ribs we head home to eat. We do this weekly, easily!
So this morning, I have declared war against my excess weight and armed with a truck load of fruit and veg from Aldi I am heading towards a healthier Bex. I’m going to manage my time better and hopefully (fingers crossed) have some tea with the kids before Archery so I don’t pig out on the way home.
