A little bit of feedback 🙂
The lunch time “bigger” meal is working out brilliantly for me. I’m a little sad that I only started trying this out so late in my life! I don’t feel sluggish in the afternoon at all – quite the opposite in fact, where I used to have a sugar dip around 3pm and find some chocolates or crisps – I’m now awake, alert and full :). I have a snack at night – which is great as its generally quick and easy to prepare – so no temptation to order take-aways. Also my shopping is way easier and MUCH cheaper as I don’t have to worry about big meals! Ok the saved money goes into paying for lunch but its definitely worth it. I am keeping a food diary on google docs and making notes about how i feel at certain times. It is helping in highlighting “problem” times – like how when I skip a fruit ‘meal’ I usually end up having a chocolate an hour later…
I haven’t really had any alcohol for just over a month now (I know there was a Savannah in there somewhere). I thought it would be more difficult not drinking with friends – but it isn’t. I don’t feel like having a drink at all – a bit odd really, but not complaining. I like not wanting to have a drink in my hand, and not needing to have a drink to enjoy a social situation. I also find I’m drinking much more water – but I think this is more due to the fact that my new workplace has water coolers dotted around 🙂
I haven’t lost any weight (yet!) but as I cancelled 2 personal training sessions this week that is not surprising. I’m letting my leg rest so that the ITB thingy can get better. I don’t want anything to affect my running 🙂 I am going to the first running session this afternoon though, but then will ice and rest the leg again all weekend.
