Cooking Challenge

Since I started the fitness challenge over two weeks ago, I’ve walked over 70 miles and will most likely walk over 100 miles by the time the challenge concludes. So quite pleased with myself for pushing through even on days where my heart and oh yeah my knees simply wasn’t in it!

But whereas the exercise is going well, the diet is complete rubbish. This past week I had chips (french fries) for dinner three nights in a row. Now I didn’t particularly enjoy the chips but yet, I didn’t have enough willpower to resist the temptation to go back on the second and third night.

Why? Well I worked late those evenings and I just didn’t feel like cooking. Also, I wanted some comfort food. A poor excuse, but that was my reality and so frustrated as I haven’t lost any weight. Thankfully, I haven’t really gained any either. But I know I need to do better. I need to learn to eat things in moderation because while there isn’t anything wrong with having chips for dinner, having it three nights in a row is simply not a winning strategy.

So starting tomorrow, I’m going to try for a week to only eat things I’ve cooked. This challenge within a challenge should make things very interesting and begin to bring a bit of discipline to my diet.
