Had a very nice day today :D

Monday, June 10, 2013

I have been on my new eating programme for almost a month now and although I have slipped up now and again, I must admit that it's getting easier by the day.

I have really started to recognise false hunger from genuine and even in cases which would have triggered a binge eat/drink before, I have started day by day to show more restraint.

This afternoon I finished work early as my exam classes have finished and I took my mum and the kids to the playground. It was such joy to watch my kids running around and playing happily. They got through 3.5 lt of water during the 3 hours we were there. My son had to change his T-shirt twice as it was soaked through.

After that we met my husband at a local square and I decided to treat them to a souvlaki dinner. I only had some meat without pita bread or sauce and was very happy and satisfied with that. My kids had brought along a small ball and we spent quite some time running around playing football together. My mum and husband sat and watched us as my mum has been having knee problems the last couple of years and hubby had just returned from a 2.5hr rehearsal with his band. He's a drummer so he burnt plenty of calories fro today.

Even though I am still recovering from a stomach bug that troubled me over the weekend, I was so happy to be running around and playing with my kids :) I know I have reached this point in progress before and have still fallen back onto my old habits, but I feel that this time, especially since I am doing this with the help of my husband who is a very determined man, I have a much better chance of succeeding.,

So, I am not saying that there will be no bumps in the road, but I believe I have a good shot at reaching the finish line. One thing I know for sure is that the happy memories of today are sure to put a big smile on my face when I got to bed tonight :D

Take care, everyone xxx

    OK, let me get this out of the way: Mmmmmmm, souvlaki. I haven't even thought about it in years, but now I need to find out if there's anything in it I can't eat because I want some! It's one of my husband's favorites too.

    I'm impressed with your positivity here! I just this morning vowed to stop berating myself, so this was a good time for me to catch up on this blog and read you enacting what I need to do for myself.

    I'm proud of you for sticking with it! Lately I've had my first taste in a looooong time of being so frustrated with myself that I want to just give up. But we can do this, my dearest friend! emoticon

    Oh! And I had no idea your husband is a drummer. What is it about them that is so darn charming anyway?! emoticon I really think his support is going to be a HUGE help to you. I know mine's has been for me. I am constantly remarking how grateful I am that he loves vegetables and fish on his own nearly as much as he does a burger or pizza. It's made this so much easier!

    Bravo Eleni. Attitude and belief is half the battle.
    Sounds like a great day - hot too by the sounds
    of it. You take one day at a time and if you stumble,
    just get up again. Eventually we will get there,
    won't we? Of course we will. Love and hugs.

    Glad you had a great day! Take that feeling and whenever you hit a bump, remember how good you felt running after you kids and making good food choices. I know you can do this. It's time for you to believe it, too!
