How’s your Tuesday been? Mine has been pretty tiring!! Sleep hasn’t been very good to me lately!
I work in London on the days that I’m not at home, so I was up at 5:30 this morning after about 2 hours sleep… a couple of days of that is fine, but I’m verging on not remembering the last time I had a decent sleep. I really hope that eating better and exercising more will help. Being tired from a lack of sleep, along with the sluggishness of a crappy diet really isn’t fun – it’s my own fault though!
I have to say that I’ve been so hungry all day. I hate the first week or so of cutting out junk, my body thinks it hates me more now than when I’ve scoffed down a few beers and a load of crisps. It doesn’t, but my mind thinks I’ll feel better if I just eat something naughty… mind over matter, as they say.
Today I’ve had porridge with a bit of fruit compote (apparently it’s international porridge day today – who even knew!?), a little popcorn cereal bar thing (that’s as bad as it gets! It’s pretty low in everything to be honest), a “Green & Grain” chicken salad from Pret and homemade spaghetti bolognese for dinner – although with pasta instead of spaghetti, and a yoghurt… I am so hungry lol. I know I shouldn’t be, but seriously, I’ve eaten like a pig for about 3 years now and it’s all caught up with me.
Exercise wise today, I’ve walked a fair bit. I have a decent walk to and from work and I loaded myself up with bags – yep, I forget that I have to walk to the station, then get on a train and then walk home and buy way more than I can actually carry… Boots had my favourite shower gel on offer for £1 and my shampoo at 3 for £10, so I had to stock up. Usually that’s not a problem, but I had just been to Tesco and bought a bunch of food for home! My neck and shoulders are paying the price for that now 😂 Surely that counts as some kind of weight lifting!? No… oh well!
Enough rambling on… catch up again soon!
