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
