. . . the past couple of days.
I'm actually proud of myself. Because I've been working in a cold warehouse for the past few days, it would be easy for me to stuff myself with comfort food to warm myself up and make myself feel better (I hate this part of my job!) But I've been good.
Think the fact I've been running about a lot has helped, and also it's been so cold in the warehouse I've not really got time to think about being hungry. I've been trying to stick to my three apple a day thing and haven't really had time to eat in the morning before grabbing a taxi to work (the bad thing is that because I'm not within walking distance of the warehouse, i can't walk like I usually would to my office which cuts out some exercise). So I've been having an apple in the morning, another apple with my lunch, and one mid-afternoon. For my ACTUAL lunch, I've been having a tortilla wrap with light Philadelphia and a mixture of red peppers, mushroom and onion - so it tastes yummy AND I feel like it's relatively healthy.
For dinner yesterday I had a cheese and onion grill thing (approx 180 cals) and a bowl of soup with one slice of brown bread and butter, and I had a Curly Wurly as a treat. For dinner tonight I had a Weightwatchers lasagne, and then later on I had some Reece's cups. I know, I know, chocolate isn't good. But I find that I can't deny myself it. If I allow myself a treat of chocolate, I'm far happier and less likely to go off the rails. And as long as I allow space for it, I don't see why i shouldn't let myself have something nice . . .
So tomorrow is my last day in the warehouse so I'm hoping I can stick to a similar plan then. It may all go to ruin once I'm back in the nice hot office sitting on my ass but I'm definitely going to try and stick to the three apples a day and trying not to overdo it when I get home at night. I have a Christmas night out a week on Saturday so would like to feel a little less bulky for that.
I'm also looking for other adjustments i can make to my diet that might help, the little things make all the difference, right? If I find anything, I'll let you know . . .
