5 days walking

YAY! I made it through 5 days of getting up early and walking. And now I have 2 rest days and I am SO excited by that! My legs are incredibly tired and fatigued, but it is a real accomplishment for me to have achieved this.

I had another good food day yesterday - 2020 cals. The weekend is going to be harder. No exercise so only 1800 cals, plus I will not have the structure of a work day. But I will do my best and see how I go.

Last night I was absolutely STARVING! But instead of reaching for the food I reached for the phone and sent a text to my OHB Buddy. She talked me through the hunger and I went to bed dead on calories. I love having a buddy to help me through this.

As promised, here are my monthly goals so that I will be on track to meet my 2 major goals for the year. Yes, I am starting small, but I am incredibly un-fit, and you gotta start somewhere.

I thought I would show you an example of what I am having for lunches. I mentioned the other day I did a big cook up. Todays feast includes a pasta bake cooked with TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein for the non-vego's out there), a garden salad, a hard boiled egg and a meat-free patty. If I am still hungry after all that (which can happen) I also have fruit with me. :)



  1. Well done on the five days walking. Getting into good habits like that is bloody hard...I know I've been struggling to do it for ages now. And the lunches look great. Far more creative than my usual of a tin of baked beans:)

  2. Looks yummy. Although I've never been keen on TVP. I usually mush up some lentils for my bolognese instead.
