Good morning...

Had a great day yesterday and feel like I have my dieting mojo back 😊

I think the key is to definitely have a good protein filled breakfast which keeps you going. This is what I have had for breakfast yesterday and today...

I made a big pan of vegetable soup so that I had a delicious homemade meal ready to heat up when I got in from work nom nom ☺

Words to always keep in mind...

New start....

It's been a while since I wrote what with being on holiday and  losing my may with my diet but I'm back now.

I have got my weight loss head back on and from today will be posting again.

I am back at slimming world to get weighed on Thursday so between now and then I will be trying to do damage control so that hopefully it won't show as too big a weight gain.

Home and Away

It was a fantastic few days with my mum. We caught the train at 5.18 and were there just after 8, perfect timing for breakfast. We laughed a lot, ate a fair bit and drank a bottle of wine or two. Not good for the diet but good for the soul and we were happy. The days flew by far to fast and it was sad to say good bye....but we will be back there soon.

So its weigh in day today and I am prepared for a gain but you have to have fun in life and live otherwise you will get bored. So its time to brave the scales and then tomorrow go on another holiday!!! A week in the lakes self catering and hopefully lots of walking, wise choices when eating out and hopefully I wont do to much damage while still having lots of fun. You just have to remember to......

It's been a very busy and stressful couple of days at work (not that that is anything new) but I have avoided grabbing chocolate, biscuits or cake. Today I was very proud of myself as I had a curly wurly on my desk which I was going to have with my afternoon cup of tea but because I was stressed I DIDN'T have, yes you heard right I DIDN'T have it. You see I want to try and break the habit of grabbing chocolate in these circumstances. If I had eaten the chocolate I would of enforced the habit of stress=eat chocolate. I saved my curly wurly till I got home and had it after my tea with a cup of coffee, in a nice relaxed atmosphere and boy did I enjoy it :)

Its weigh in day tomorrow and I am nervous and excited at the same time. I have been very good this week so am hoping for a good weight loss of a couple of pounds but I am worried that after last weeks loss of 9lbs I won't lose this week and I will lose my determination. Here's hoping it will be a positive day tomorrow.

Manic Monday

Its been an incredibly busy day at work today. Working as a Drs receptionist isn't always an easy job and can be extremely demanding and stressful. One of my triggers for diving into the biscuit barrel or chocolate box. I've been trying to stay positive and not get too stressed. I keep telling myself no matter how many phones are ringing I can only answer one at a time and no matter how angry a patient gets its not personal its  the system they are angry with not me. Positive thinking is really helping me a the moment and I am trying to incorporate it into more and more of my life.

My tip for the day...write yourself positive notes to boost your mood....I write on my fridge when I lose any weight congratulating myself and affirming that I can do this....try it for yourself and see.
