Day 12 – 100 Healthy Days – Up-ing My Game

Goals, Health & Beauty, Journey Back to Health

12 Days in, how’s it been going?

The first few days my actual goal that is to ‘move more’ was met but my hope for that to include daily exercising was near impossible.  Mainly due to a horrible cough and cold and clashing schedules with my hubby (my friend is never going to arrange to go running with me again the amount I had to cancel on her) but as I said, I have been successful in moving more.  Walking into town with the children instead of driving as I normally would, small changes like that, that are hopefully going to make a big difference.

Eating wise though things did start well.  Swapping spaghetti for ribboned Courgettes when the family are having pasta, having Ryvitta ‘sandwiches’ instead of actual sandwiches and making a real point of going for the healthy option – like when we stopped for breakfast, everyone ordered the full English, I had a Granola, Fruit & Yogurt Knickerbocker Glory – somehow I swear it tastes better delivered as a dessert.  I did still have the odd ice-cream with the kids (as I said nothing has been dis-allowed) but worlds apart from where my diet has been recently.

The last few days I have done really well.  Swimming everyday, eating salads, rice dishes and fresh food.    I do feel that I should tell you though that this is currently what I am working with – think it would actually be tougher to not go swimming everyday in this pool.

What I am hoping is that this will continue and serve as seriously good motivation once I am back in the UK.  Time will tell…. But I think I need your help!  I need tips, suggestions, ideas, things to do, exercise classes, apps – anything that can help push me forward it my goal of 100 Healthy Days.  I am including Emotional Health in this so anything you can think of.  Please pop your comment in the box below and let me know.  Thanks!

In this picture I have added a little no-fat yogurt and some blueberries – yum yum yum!

Just one tip – the batter is thicker than a normal pancake mix so make sure you spread it thinly and move it around the pan more – unless you want to do the American style smaller and thicker pancake – this batter is perfect for that.

Happy eating! x
