…keeps me on the right track.
The humble apple has somehow become the symbolic reminder of my Healthy Eating challenge. Each morning I eagerly collect my organic Braeburn apple from the fridge and take it with me to work, placing it carefully on the white dish in front of me on my window ledge like it has centre stage. I only drink chilled and filtered water all morning and then at exactly 11 o’clock (wishful thinking here) – at near enough 11 o’clock I eat said apple and feel really
smug pleased with myself as my colleagues bite into their alternative snack (a calorie laden piece of cake!) This one small act sets me up for the rest of the day and even though I may, here and there, once or twice, from time to time succumb to the temptation of an M&S Chocolate Teacake or similar I know that before lunch at least I have been extraordinarily good.
Having said all that I have still to get myself focused on my lunches (which I have bought all week) and evening meals (some good some not so) and organise a regular exercise plan. I think that my 5 minutes allotted time is now up so further installment tomorrow when I promise I will get down to the nitty-gritty of the measurements and targets.
