Would you prefer a moment of satisfaction or a lifetime of happiness? Sometimes that's what it comes down to.
Another Bank Holiday Monday, last one till August, they seem to have some kind of mystical power when it comes to taking over my members minds and sending them off track! I suppose it's because it's out of routine, we see them as a 'holiday' even if we're not going anywhere and we can forget our goals in that moment. Then we know we've gone off track so we think sod it till weigh day and by weigh day you may think I know it's going to be bad so I'll wait a week and pull it back!
That mentality doesn't work and if losing weight is important I'm guessing any damage that could potentially be done today wouldn't be worth it at all.
So today, I'm getting my journal out and I'm going to plan dinner and track it all, ooo I just got a little excited because I remembered that I've put overnight oats in the fridge, so breakfast is sorted. For lunch, I'm thinking either a spaghetti dish, oh hold on I've cooked lunch already too, I made a leek and mustard bake yesterday, the recipe and lots of others are on my website http://happyowls.co.uk/Recipes/RecipesDinner/LeekMustardBake.html, it's still being re-constructed but there are lots of cooking ideas there now. I might still add some spaghetti to that to bulk it out a little, we'll see.
I'm having a lazy weekend, although I did make the effort to do some cooking yesterday, I also tried a new food, Fit was good, I'd eat it again anyway and I served it with fish curry, used cod and although it was delicous, I don't think I'd make it with fish again, for one the cod was damned expensive and the curry obviously took away the taste of it.
Taryn Brumfitt’s message is: love your own body, because it’s the only one that you have. I 100% agree with her, you're all BeYOUtiful if only you could see it, now go treat that body with respect and feed it with love and healthy, nutritious food!
Enjoy your Bank Holiday Monday BeYOUtiful, I will.
