    My Plan For The Month

    In the last 3 years, I have put on about 7kg…and that’s baaaad, really bad!

    I find myself more prone to comfort eating now. I don’t recall when I made food my therapist, but that’s what it has become. I find myself eating when I’m happy, sad, stressed, angry, upset…all sorts!

    Another struggle I’ve had is with exercise. Now that I have returned to a 9-5 job, I no longer have time to exercise. I wake up at 4.30am, just to be able to get me my household ready for the day…and I don’t get back home till about 7.30pm…so I find myself struggling…

    But this is what I commit to doing this month:

    NO MORE COMFOR EATING! Like, no more! I need to find a way to satisfy myself with fruits whenever I feel peckish. I also am going to continue trying to keep my carbs and sugar to the absolute minimum…so, no more sabotaging my healthy smoothies with packed fruit juice :dohh:

    As for exercise, I’ve just realised that if I do about 20 minutes of jumping jacks / skipping rope every day, I might still be good. I might not have time to go to the gym, but at least I can try to do the burn at home.

    So fingers crossed. What are you ladies determined to do this month?

    Just thought to share a picture of my breakfast smoothie: pineapples, berries and banana. I know I should ditch the banana, but I need something filling abeg :wacko:

    Oh, and that’s not crushed ice. It’s just the design of the cup.

    Well, the struggle has been real. After a great day yesterday, I spoilt it by having a bar of Twix at night. It is well. We’ll keep up the struggle.

    Oh, and I realised that dancing for 30 minutes is a good workout! So guess who boogie downed yesterday!

    @nicole those nails of life. I promised to stop having these doughnuts and beef roll for breakfast (hides face). Developed this bad habit some months ago. I also plan to monitor my portions and exercise 3ce a week, God help me. Im going to use black girls do work out – it’s not too intense.

    God help us all  :good:

    Well that looks yummy and the design of the cup. My breakfast is mostly tea, milo o, not lipton with loads of milk, I guess, I need to go easy on the milk sha. B-). My only exercise is praise and worship on Sundays, it’s one of the reasons, I go to church early. May God forgive me.  :haha:   :haha:
