I have decided to start this daily battle log and to do all my writing in here. I have an intro in the rebel intro area and have an intro in the January 2016 challenge area. This seems the best place to keep everything together and focus on writing in one area. My challenge goals have been a big fail. But I have put things in place to help me get on track and stay there. I am great at starting, I am bad at continuing. In short, I want to get strong and fit and lose weight along the way. I want to be able to say yes to doing things without worrying about looking bad in clothes or not being fit enough to do something. I want to live a long life that is healthy and rewarding. I have goals around eating and fitness but I won't go in to them now. I am trying to put the other posts in to my signature bar but so far have had no luck. Today I have planned 12 meals for this week (lunches and dinners). I know I will have one meal at work this week that will be meat and salad, and that gives me one other meal not planned, but this is the first time I have done this so 12 seems pretty good. Looking at my shopping list, it is much less than what I would often buy but is plenty of food. It will be interesting to see how I go. I have PT this afternoon, so that is my exercise for the day. I also meet my new boss this afternoon to see what she wants me doing this year - I am a teacher, not on class but in charge of a teaching team, so it will be interesting to see what she says. Then back to work on Wednesday, today being Monday.
This is my log of what I eat and what exercise I do, I'm starting it from a low point, I haven't slept properly for a couple of weeks and I want all the sugar and carbs. First step sort out sleep (waiting for hormones to kick in), second step cut out sugar and wheat Wednesday 16th March 2016 Very little sleep, hot and cold flushes kept me awake. Breakfast: croissant, butter, cream cheese and smoked salmon, cup of tea Snack cream coffee choix pasty and latte - oh that sugar is so good, got me home from town Lunch leftover aubergine and goats cheese pie Snack cornetto Dinner kangaroo steak, courgette, mushrooms, sweet potatos Berries and yoghurt with honey I'm going to have a rare sleeping pill tonight, today has been really harsh.
