My positive frame of mind continues… I have to admit to jumping on the scales this morning and the results looked positive even after just 2 days of keeping to points! Imagine if I did it all of time?!
I even went for a walk (of my own volition) this afternoon. I finished work before 5.30 for a change and was home by 6pm. As the bus neared the stop near my apartment I pondered on the idea of a very short walk…. just up and down some nearby streets. Even more amazingly I got home, changed and was out the door before I had time to reconsider.
I had decided to call in at my corner store on the way back from my 15-20min walk, but after a few blocks I realised that I could just keep going a bit further and (instead) go to the nearby supermarket. It only added 5-10mins each way to my walk, but meant I clocked up 30 minutes (and got more bang for my buck!). My shins hurt a little as I reached the supermarket, but I wondered if that was psychosomatic as much as anything….
Anyway, I am feeling happy I did some exercise AND am sticking to my points. I have had 10 points so far today, as my lunch was a bit higher in points than usual. I am having some delicious fillet steak tonight with some potatoes (chopped into fake chips, zapped in the microwave and put under the griller) with some green beans. As I will still be under 18 points I thought I might also make an egg custard type thingy.
I am also cooking up some soup for lunches (tomato soup with some kidney beans etc, which ‘ups’ the points a bit, but is still a healthy option!).
So, another good day. Only two and a half more to get through before weigh-in. I think I can make it!!!
