Hopefully doing a blog will help me keep track and keep on track.

When I was younger I used to work in a children's home so was often playing football running around etc, these days I work in an office and the most exercise I get is going to the printer( and if i lean back in my chair and stretch I dont even have to get up :oops: )
I have "flirted" with running and cycling in the past and in fact did London Marathon in 2008
Now that summer is here I will try and get out on the bike a few nights a week and commute the 4 miles to work. I also have a charity place for London Marathon 2015 so will start doing a little training for that soon, BEWARE I will be begging for sponsorship come Christmas time :cool:

What really kickstarted the idea of dieting was my kids telling me I am fat, to be fair...

One of the things that I have found really good for me on my first week is to use my kitchen blackboard to write up that days fast menus!! :geek:

Its really cool...I can rub off as I go along...and its on view to him indoors :heart: who can (hopefully) encourage me to stick to what should be on my plate!! Works so far :grin:

I don't know why but I've really struggled with today's fast. Several times I felt like throwing in the towel and eating something naughty just to cope. I guess it was a pretty stressful day, my colleague was being observed by the senior management (something that happens with teaching a lot) and then one of our children who is quite aggressive kicked off massively several times. Plus I'm in quite a bit of pain from rolling around doing first aid this week, my back is really feeling...AND I'm due my period next week....I guess when I look at all the evidence I can see why I struggled. My one flaw (or in this case saving grace) is I am so stubborn I wouldn't give in. I can't wait to eat today though, thinking I'll have chicken breast, salad and some quinoa/Bulgar wheat mix for dinner. And if there's enough calories some strawberries I bought. If not, I'll be making some chocolate covered strawberries tomorrow I think ...
