Kicking things off…again

Hi All,

So, I have restarted the Benevita challenge. The plan is, to monitor how I feel, and most importantly if it does actually help with any weight loss.

I have decided to take up T25 (for those of you that don’t know, this is a fitness programme by Sean T – the man behind..well in front and training, Insanity) its a 10 week programme consisting of 25 min workouts a day.

Ive been feeling a little negative recently, mainly because I’ve not been well, which has stopped me from working out and lead to comfort eating, which has also meant I’ve put on a bit of weight.

It may not be VERY visible, but I know its there.

So the plan is to draw up a schedule/ planner, and plan my meals throughout the day – this should stop me reaching for the bad stuff whenever I feel hungry.

What I do find strange….I keep fruit on the kitchen table, so its visible, and so ill eat more fruit instead of biscuits. My brain tends to blur out the fruit it doesn’t even see it on the table when I get the sweet craving.

I know the journey to being fitter will not be easy, and its not just a case of trying to do things differently, I have to actually reprogram my brain, so that it sees the fruit and not the biscuits. Bad habits die hard, and good ones are harder still to form. But heres to trying!

This quote from Mark Caine seems quite fitting for todays post: “The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.”
