A Month of Honesty: Day 11

Today has been a mixture of all things wonderful! 

Mental Health:


After a lazy lie in, my mum picked up my 2 youngest for the afternoon. She took them to look for some fireworks, then a McDonald's lunch THEN she took them back to hers for a few hours.

Me and the hubby ate a lovely roast dinner, followed by a cwtchy afternoon watching a movie (and snoozing on my part). It was wonderful and relaxing. I feel at peace. 

After a week of thinking positive, I went back to Zumba. It was wonderful, I feel energised and happy. I also had a good chat to my Zumba instructor, who told me not to be so hard on myself. She's right, and now I feel like I have someone I can talk to, if I feel that way again.

General Well Being:


I am still feeling well and healthy. I did fall asleep this afternoon, but I believe it was more about being cosy in my hubby's arms, than the lack of any vitamins.

Exercise:


Today is all about quality, not quantity. There are 49 active minutes on there folks! Proud of that.

Diet:


Meal 1: 2 bread, mayo and grated lactofree cheese
Meal 2: Roast beef, roast potatoes, broad beans, cauliflower, sprouts and homemade gravy. (I love Sundays)
Meal 3: 2 Oranges, packet of crisps
Snacks: Naan bread and BabyCorn.
(Laid out slightly differently as, after a busy morning, I didn't really have breakfast)

I really feel positive, doing this every day. My Zumba instructor worried about me putting too much pressure on myself, and she's right, I do. However this month, so far, this is actually making me more positive about who I am, and what I do/eat. 

I'm not unhealthy, I'm not unfit, I just happen to be overweight. As she also pointed out..............it could be worse!
