    WhiteGhost Gets Serious 2: The Seriousening

    I love Chinese food! It's how I trick myself into eating vegetables, I'll eat almost anything that's stir fried and padded out with rice or noodles. Cooking it yourself is usually much healthier than the takeaway versions, you know what goes into it. My 'chef's tip': they use fresh ginger in a lot of recipes, buy a big chunk, peel it, chop it into 2cm chunks and freeze it so you always have some to hand. You can grate it from frozen.

    JessRed First Challenge

    Only a few days left of this challenge and I feel it's been quite successful. I've managed to cut down quite a bit on the sugary junk, mostly by making sure I always had something to nibble on. Mixed nuts and vegetable crisps have been my saviour, I'm such a grazer. Still have a craving for the sweet stuff, getting easier to ignore it. Keeping up with 3 yoga classes each week has been tough, 2 is more manageable for me. I attended 1 class this week and did a self practice tonight, hopefully can fit another in over the weekend. Been making some progress with work too, again just trying to maintain realistic goals and saying no when I really can't manage something. It's not a natural habit though. I'll post a full breakdown of my progress when I'm done. What will my next challenge be?
  4. I'm pretty new to this so will be fully accepting of any constructive criticism. I've fallen off the fitness band wagon, my current routine and diet have fallen into despair and, to be honest, I'm a bit bored. My working schedule is pretty intense and I worry that starting something completely new is going to be biting off more than I can chew so here's my plan: 1: Shift my focus towards yoga instead of aerial. I want to get in 3 practices a week. 2: Stop buying crap foods and snacking on them. I want to plan out and prep healthier snacks for when hunger strikes. 3: Focus on one work thing rather than trying to spread myself in too many directions. I need to learn to prioritise, delegate and say 'no' a bit more often. Wish me luck.
