Starting from Scratch Post-Holiday
Hi all. Well, despite my best intentions, I went totally off-plan on my holiday. I was only in Center Parcs but as we were in the hotel we couldn't go self-catering so we ate out every night for a week! :eek: We had a few bits with us so I could have a healthy breakfast (mainly fruit or porridge made with water) and lunches didn't really happen often as we were so busy but the evening food and drinks were so, so bad. However, I had a brilliant time and refuse to feel guilty about it.
I'm therefore starting from scratch again from today. I'm going back to keeping a hand written food diary (I got fed up writing them so tried keeping one on here and then forgot about it so haven't kept one in a while). I find I stick to plan much better if I manually write it all down so I'm going to do that. I'm also going to rigorously stick to my syn allowance every day, aiming for between 5 and 10 syns rather than going to the full 15.
I won't be doing any EE days this week, I never really got on with them. It'll be mainly green days with a red thrown in here and there if I fancy a change. I also rediscovered my love for swimming while I was away so I'm planning on taking that up again in evenings after work. I'll have to fit this in around my work schedule (I travel a lot to different places each week so can't always make it to the pool before public swimming time ends) but I'm hoping to go once or twice a week.
Sorry for the slightly random post here, I feel much better now I've written it though as I'm feeling much more accountable for my forthcoming weightloss actions :) Thanks for listening!
