My main aim is change my lifestyle rather than just lose weight - taking stock of things, my diet is appalling, and barely do any exercise. No wonder I feel so tired and sluggish and blah! I love to get to a weight at which I'm happy with how I look, but how I feel is even more important. My goals are: look amazing for my graduation in July (target weight around about 130 lbs) exercise regularly, at least 3x per week, and improve my fitness levels increase my fruit & veg intake to at least 3 but ideally 4/5 per day take care of myself emotionally/mentally too - get enough sleep, meditation/mindfulness, quality time with family & friends keep well hydrated The first week of January has been crazy busy, and I've been commuting between 3 different places, so things haven't really got started! Now I'm still splitting my time between London and Essex but back in more of a pattern, so I can start in earnest to change my habits. I also need to buy a new pair of trainers for running in... tried an old pair and they gave me a massive blood blister on a pressure point because they don't fit properly. Monday 6th January 2014 Food & drink: 400g New Covent Garden Soup Co. Lentil & Smoked Bacon Soup large handful of salad leaves (baby spinach, watercress, rocket) salt & vinegar Crinkly Mini Cheddars Kinder Cereals chocolate bar 3 small clementines about 1.5 litres Robinson's no added sugar squash Exercise: 1 hr 20 mins brisk walking Sleep: Not great, slept in too late - I'm attempting to shift my sleep pattern from evening shifts back to early mornings. An early night for me tonight! Weight: On Saturday 4th I was 164.6 lbs (optimistically low because I quite dehydrated) Goals for tomorrow: Get up on time and leave enough time to get ready rather than rushing. Prepare healthy lunch in advance. Drink > 1.5 litres, ideally 2 litres. Spend half an hour in the evening on meditation/relaxation. Remember to post letters that need to be sent!
