A bad week

Food wise last week was a bad week. I was on the road 2 days, work related and didn’t really get to fuel properly.

Time to learn something!

What worked well?

I forced myself to eat porridge before taking off. It took over 30 minutes to get it down, but was worth it. I would’ve bonked at the meeting otherwise.

What else is creeping up?

I need to improve my hydration again, might have been slipping there as well. Maybe track it again for a week ….

Work does not trump food!!! I need to get back to doing lunch breaks and cook! If I am not fuelled I can’t think.

As a sidenote … I am having some fun getting used to the new me and watch my mind adapt. If I pass by a mirror and don’t really make an effort I still see my old self. So now I totally get how people with eating disorders feel when they say ‘I am fat’ albeit their bones being visible.

My weight has pretty much stayed the same over the past few weeks. This makes me feel confident that this box is ticked off. I have finally found a way to live and eat balanced that works for me.

Now all I have to do is make sure I get everything my body needs.

  1. Well done! I must admit i’m feeling better already having made steps to improve my nutrition. I’ve also just realised I haven’t eaten meat in the whole of January which wasn’t a conscious thing but rather just happened as I fixed my diet. I really should eat breakfast but like you I find it hard ot get it down first thing.

    1. Thanks! I find it helps to run then eat an early lunch …. as well as a super late lunch. Speaking of it I get hungry … where did I stash my broccoli …
