This food log thing is going quite well! I’m beginning to think about what I eat and my energy in vs energy out! My scales rewarded me this morning.. 56.6kg and 27.9% fat – a good kilo down from yesterday. It just goes to show how much of that was just water weight and a backed up digestive system.
I feel happy and alive now that I am living a healthy lifestyle and have my weight down below 50kg. I love running and I love the days I get to spend building my strength in the gym. Eating healthy food comes naturally to me, my first choice is always some fruit or vegies and I always make sure I get enough protein and good carbs to fuel my body. The best thing is, I feel like I have balance now that I also commit to the hours required for my PhD and ensure the time I spend with my children is quality time! Just by spending 20mins a day on the housework and establishing basic routines, my house is also clean and fresh, and my budget under control so I feel really good about shopping for new home that will suit our needs better. It feels so good to be in control of my life and steering myself toward my goals!

Sleep last night: I went to bed around 11pm last night, woke up at around 9am, so about 10 hours sleep. It was not good quality sleep though, I woke up a few times during the night and didn’t drift off easily. I get frustrated with my nose getting blocked up!
Business: On computer until 10am then off to uni to sit at a desk at a computer until 6pm!
