Day 3 – Rest Day (But Stay Active)

Sunday 30th April 2017
I had to laugh when Shane said, you’ll have 2 rest days but I want you to stay active, go for a walk or cut the grass!!! There are 2 men in our house that can cut the grass, not my job!!! I am however going to bring Sean swimming, I reckon the water will help with the aches I’m currently feeling!! Then we might go for a walk in Courtown Woods.

At this moment I feel great, I know there is no difference yet but I do feel different, I don’t feel bloated or fat full. I’m looking forward to having 1 week done and dusted so I have an idea of what to expect and all the 1st’s are over 😊 I just had a yummy breakfast, the only thing is I had a small glass of fresh orange juice, simply because it was poured for me, when I measured it afterwards it was 200ml!! Wow!! Will do without next time… unnecessary calories!! I am however getting used to toast with literally 1/2 g of butter, I’ll soon be using none 😊

Just back from swimming and tucking into a super tasty healthy wrap. I’ve been kicking myself today for not doing this sooner, like 22 yrs ago. I had such an unhealthy relationship with food, its ridiculous!! Anyhow I am doing something now and gotta just focus on that! Hubby is bugging me today, he’s having a ‘lazy’ day, which is fine but has mentioned a few times about wanting the junk food back that I got rid of. I told him he can go shop and buy stuff but I’m not having anything to do with it. I know he shouldn’t have to go without just because of me but seriously just support me!!! I actually can’t believe I’m not yet craving anything, maybe it’s too soon but I am really enjoying the food I have.

Hubby fancied lasagne for dinner so we made it as low fat as possible, lean mince, cheese sauce made with lf milk and we didn’t add cheese to the top. I had mine with a mixed salad, Shane had his with chips. We would have had garlic bread too, before but not today. I was quite satisfied with mine tbh, I love mixing up my salads, I added some gherkins today 😊 After dinner the lads disappeared to the shop, Shane asked did I want anything, my reply was ‘petrol so I can get to spinning tomorrow!’ Just thinking back to before, I would have gladly went to the shop and got a 99 and probably a bar of chocolate. I wouldn’t have even needed it but ate it anyway. I’m going to have my yogurt and raspberries again shortly and I’ll be happy out.

Today I realised, for years I have not liked my body therefore have done nothing nice to it, I only ever get my hair done when it needs it, I never get my legs waxed or nails done and I don’t have a regular moisteurising routine. I was always too embarressed to go to a salon to get waxed or anything, like it’s bad enough me seeing my body without someone else being inflicted to it too!! It’s really not a nice feeling to have, being embarressed about your own body, it’s like I just refused to see what was below my neck. But not anymore, I need to start loving my body again, starting with something as simple as moisteurising after a shower and saving towards getting my legs waxed. They are all only little things but it will all make a big difference 😊
