I really don’t. Because most of the time I don’t have anything that can’t be said in 140 characters on Twitter, or spoken to “privately” to my friends on Facebook, or captured in an image on Instagram or Snapchat. When I look at my posts here, mostly I feel a bit sad that I can’t even write about committing to healthy living, much less act on it. However, at the moment I have at least two almost fully formed blog posts, edited as I stomp sulkily around my still dark town at quarter to seven in the morning. So maybe I’ll post them.
Still struggling to get it together.
Good news is, I’m not gaining.
Bad news is, I’m not going anywhere downwards either.
Lots of reasons and no reasons at all.
I’m still exercising most days. I’m still consciously making decisions about food. I haven’t developed a sugar laden drink addiction or started eating biscuits while I walk.
One of my biggest challenges is balancing healthy food plus family meals plus the grocery bill, so while I do write a list, I’m always open to specials. Today I got frozen capsicums and frozen mushrooms, both of which I didn’t know existed but they were cheaper than their fresh variants.
I do always have a vague plan though: on Thursdays I need a dinner that can be put together in the afternoon, because we’re out from 5-6. Mondays I need a crockpot dinner. I like to have at least one meat free meal a week too.
So I didn’t take a photo of my shopping list, long story short.
Day 8: Workout Outside. I’m energised by being outside and you’ll (never say never) never catch me in a gym. Unless there’s some Lycra free hilarious dance class. Lucky I have my three little partners in crime who love a morning walk on the weekends.
Having said that, I’m really enjoying doing a 15 minute workout in the mornings too.
Day 7: Fresh #wwphotoaday I know some people find it easy to eat heaps of veges, but I am not one of them. I do know I feel better when I eat them though, and I believe the science that says I should. I buy this pre-cut mix of green cabbage, red cabbage, kale, carrots, celery, red onion and coriander. Zero effort to put on my plate and it’s pretty yum.
