I know why I've been staying the same!! It's so obvious I could kick myself!! I've come across a few reasons.
- My 'diet' was boring. My body got complacent. I've changed it. Not the same breakfast every day, not the same dinner or lunch every day, not even the same snacks. It also includes a lot more fruit, veg and salad which is extrememly filling!
- Not enough exercise. I've stepped it up this week - pun intended - I've been on two decent walks so far, planning on another one today and tomorrow... as well as my golf today. I've found my pedometer, and although 10,000 steps is my main aim, my first one is 7,000.
- I haven't been measuring my milk or orange juice! The milk was the first one that was brought to my attention, as my mum mentioned that she was going to get a little one pint cartoon to take to work with her etc. Then she said that my dad had told her we get through 4 pints a day between us - and only my mum and I have the skimmed milk. Then it was pointed out to me that I have lots of coffee at work, and that uses semi skimmed milk. So I've been going over my points by at least 2 a day!
Then when I was getting my orange juice at breakfast today, I decided to measure it 'just in case'! Turns out I've been having about an extra 25ml a day... not much, but it works out nearly a point a week.So hopefully, things will be better on Monday, or I'm even prepared to wait until next Monday to see a decent result, as I've only realised two days before weigh day - But at least I know now!!
