Somehow I managed to post my blog on Facebook last night which was slightly embarrassing. Now I've unleashed my plan onto the world I feel I cannot cave in as my friends are watching me. In fact I am overwhelmed with the support I have received.
Ok today is another day. I haven't lost anything but I have had a decent amount of sleep and I am thinking positively. It is, after all, only just over 2 weeks into the diet and I am trying to change 56 years of bad eating habits so I shouldn't be too hard on myself. Let's start with what I have achieved so far:
All that after 2 weeks!! Just 2 weeks. What's not to love.
On those cheery thoughts I start the day with some sun salutations and stretches as I feel quite stiff after the running. I am working from home today but make sure I go out at lunchtime to get some steps in and walk to Tesco to pick up a few bits. I've also been reading inspiring stories and tips from people who have done the diet. I buy some peanuts and high cocoa chocolate. If I am going to slip up at least I will try and have something lower in carbs. I check the nutritional information on the chocolate labels and I am surprised at the difference in carbs of the various bars. Green and Black's organic dark chocolate with 36g per 100m being the highest. I settle on Lindt's 90% cocoa bar with only half that at 14g carbs per 100m. The annoying thing is that yesterday when I took my first bite of the double decker it wasn't the nectar I imagined it would be and just tasted too sweet. I had started it so I thought I would finish it - WRONG - Next time I feel something is too sweet it will be going in the bin.
