Looking Forward To Tomorrow - 21/Sept/10

Tomorrow is day one of my 30 days of shakes challenge. I have my Herbalife Recipe Booklet and few of my own ideas to the ready. All I need is a blender, juice, fruit, ice and Formula 1 twice a day, a balanced meal, 2 ltrs of water and at least 20 minutes exercise.

Now, I HAVE used this programme before, however, as I look back on it now, I realise that my mind wasn’t really in it. I lost 3 stone in weight and then something snapped and I stopped. This being the second time around, I’ve made plans to keep blogs & video diaries, I’ve researched a little more about food, nutrition and exercise. I’ve started to make meal plans a week in advance, I’ve found more options for exercising to keep it interesting and I’ve come up with some new ideas for Formula 1, as well as the recipes that come with the programme.

All I have to do is remember that I am doing this for myself and no one else. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks, it’s about what I think about and how I feel about myself. That’s one piece of advice I’d give to anyone who may read this. If you want to make a change in your life, do it for you and your family, not for anyone else. You come first. Those that care don’t mind, and those that mind don’t care.

Notes:
Seems like I may have cancelled out the good that I’ve done with the Chinese style sauce. I was unprepared, as I had to make do with tuna instead of my second shake. Friday’s in itself is a very long day for me, from the time I drop off Kyle and school until around 9pm, I’m pretty much not stop rushing around trying to beat the clock. Housework, shopping, walking around town, taking Kyle to Judo, walking to and from school. Cheated today a little as I didn’t do the shopping myself this time, I ordered online, so that’s about 2 hours of walking exercise I missed out on.

Walked around town and Asda looking for presents, couldn’t find what I was looking for so carried on searching more shops, hence the 2 hour walks.

Notes:
Cheated a little, I think, with the lemon finger cake. I know they are only tiny things but I’m sure the ingredients wouldn’t have helped any! I’ve been drinking alot of diet fizzy drinks over the last few days, should stop that! Fizzy drinks upset digestion and can have a lot of sweetener in them!
