Tick Tick Tick.....
It's all just time really isn't it. Until we are too old, until we are too weak, until.........
At the start of this year I did the Food Patrol 90 Challenge and lost 8 kilos. I was over the moon with this achievement.
Six months on...... tick, tick, tick.....
I've put almost 5 kilos back on. Not because I 'dieted' and it was inevitable, but because I dieted and when it ended I no longer maintained anything I had learned about healthy living.
I went back to the vending machine at work. Drive through on the go. Everything you shouldn't do. I was too busy, it was too hard. Excuses excuses.
But now, I have chest pains, a bit like a stitch. The pain is bearable but I do believe it is a warning sign.
Today I stopped with the excuses and just got on with it.
I'm not going on a diet, a challenge or anything like that. I'm just going to eat healthy, because I won't live a long life if I keep this up. I think my insides are screaming at me to stop.
Yesterday I had a shake for breakfast, a salad for lunch, and (at work) a low fat frozen meal for dinner.
I will continue this over the course of the week and next week will reintroduce the gym.
