Last weekend I went to Fiji to celebrate Kaipara's birthday and to kickstart my healthy lifestyle commitment. I knew I would be wishing I was fitter and smaller - and so I went to face the music.
This year has been so inconsistent for me, and it boils down to me not taking the time to centre myself DAILY.
YES, I have been incredibly busy at work.
YES, I have been busy with PACIFICA.
YES, I have been involved with my family and friends.
But a few months away from consistent exercise, combined with trying different eating fads (high fat, high protein, low carbs) has seen me balloon to 100kgs again .
Over the past month, I've been thinking what else can I do? I need to stop this now! A plan has been unfolding in my mind (and actions) and this is what it now looks like:
REGULAR EXERCISE: At least 5 days a week.
- I will try new things to keep myself interested. (I am so happy to have started swimming lessons this week! ).
NUTRITION TRACKING: At least 5 days a week.
- My Achilles Heel is the volume of food I eat. Tracking enables me to account for what I am consuming. I accept that there is no magic pill and there is no easy diet that allows me to eat whatever I want. My healthiest sustainable solution will only be found through tracking my consumption until I am under control.
DRINK at least 2 LITRES of WATER each day.
SLEEP 7 hours each night.
