So how did I get to here?
I have an awards ceremony with work on the 6th March. I've known about this since New Year - I thought that my massive health kick would get me into my size 14 dress.... It didn't go to plan! I went through vicious circles of munching massive amounts of shite as I would be dieting on Monday. I reckon I put a few lbs on!
So I saw the date last week and I panicked! One of my friends had done this Kate Troup detox she read on the Daily Mail website and had found it quite easy so I thought I'd try - I asked Matt to join me and was very surprised when he said yes!
Basically there's no dairy, no wheat, no refined sugars - no fun!!
For someone who eats at least 2 chocolate bars a day it has been a challenge to say the least! I have been very lucky this week as Matt was off work so I have actually prepared not one meal! I must say they have been delicious! He's alright he is! He knows what works - I don't. A favourite has been the curry.
Snacking has been fruit - and hasn't been too bad! Get what you like and pre-prepare so that you can munch when you feel like it.
Drink the water! It helps with the hunger - I haven't had the insatiable hunger Matt has!
I have struggled with the chocolate - I went the shops and came back with boxes and boxes of chocolate biscuits and cakes 'for the kids'. I have not had any!! I am very proud of me because on Wednesday I felt like I would sell my granny for a chocolate finger!! I keep sniffing the chocolate frosting in the fridge. I was distraught when Matt's salsa masked the smell a bit. (worth it though the salsa was gorgeous).
So I have been weighing myself and it appears to be a lb a day-ish. I'll let you know the actual total on Monday.
I am also doing Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred.
That's a completely different blog though... Oh and note to Matt - when I am sweating and grunting on the floor 'stretching' behind me is not great encouragement!!
So healthy eating - it wasn't as bad as I thought we've ate tasty and filling food. I want to stick to it - with 1 day off a week.
I want to eat well - I want it to be an example to the kids! I have noticed that they have eaten a lot more fruit this week - this is brilliant! I want us to be a healthier family, but lets take one step at a time!
