Day 1827 - Summer Health

Anyone else on the "oh my God it's almost summer" health push?

Today's lunch - I really should get a sponsorship deal with the avocado people - I love the stuff!
Yeah well, mine started this week.




Yesterday I went to the mobile blood bank to donate some claret and their scales told me I was not 1, nor 2, nor even 5 kg heavier than normal ..... but a great big 8 kgs over my desired weight! What?!  When did that happen?  Ok. so maybe their scales are different to mine and maybe if I got on my own set I'd only be at the 5kg I thought I was. But it doesn't matter. The end result is the same.  I need to get back to a healthier lifestyle of good food and more exercise.  That simple.  I must stop all this bread stuff and the sneaky chocolates and the lovely cakes and all the extra cheese.  The stuff that turns Leanne into a squashier version of herself.

So Monday I started back on my healthier living plan.  Summer here we come!

I am not doing it alone.  Miss Tahlia is also on a health push (not a weight loss push, but a healthier and more energetic eating program) and I have partnered with a friend so that we can keep each other accountable.  We send photos of our food to each other every day and we have designed an exercise plan, then we text each other when the exercise is complete.

It goes something like this:

Monday:
Breakfast: "Women's" cereal, berries and a green tea
Lunch: Salad with boiled egg and steamed potato plus a Ryvita
Dinner:  Pizza and champagne (I know, not exactly healthy eating - but it was a pre-arranged night out for my birthday)
Water:  4 glasses
Exercise:  60 sit ups, 30 leg raises, 30 dips, 30 squats

Tuesday:
Breakfast: Special K mixed with All Bran and a sprinkling of raw oats, plus prunes (yes, there may be an issue I am trying to address here)
Lunch: Salad with boiled egg and steamed potato
Dinner:  Chicken Kiev with veges and champagne (I know, this champagne stuff is an issue ... but we're on holidays and that's a totally reasonable reason excuse. Shut up.)
Water: 8 glasses
Exercise:  60 sit ups, 30 leg raises each leg both front to back and side to side (60 each leg total), 30 dips, 30 squats, 30 minute power walk


Today:
Breakfast: Special K mixed with All Bran and a sprinkling of raw oats, plus prunes (that "issue" is still there)
Lunch: Salad with grilled egg on avocado (pictured above)
Dinner:  Roast chicken and salad (NO champagne ... I will cut the cord)
Water: 8 glasses.
Exercise:  60 sit ups, 30 leg raises each leg both front to back and side to side (60 each leg total), 30 dips, 30 squats, 10 km bike ride.

Tomorrow:
More of the same.  Only I'll be adding more fruit and lots more water.

So there you have it.  Now you know what I'm up to so I'm also accountable to you too.

Good plan.

Bloody good plan. 

Anyone else want to join me?
