    Running a bit behind this morning so just posting some quick goals!

    - Track all food and drink :)
    - Be in the green :)
    - 5 fruit & veg :)
    - No alcohol :)

    - Switch emails off when finished reading :)I did do for an hour in the morning. It's difficult though because I'm working on a project that is behind schedule where I'm always waiting on people to do things, so I need to respond to emails quickly... hopefully when this project is over I'll be able to get into this habit more
    - Stay positive :|

    - Go for walk at least once :|I did, to the opticians, but that wasn't the proper walk I had planned...
    - Go to opticians to get glasses adjusted :)
    - Talk to boyfriend in French :)
    - Get stuff ordered (dubbin, car phone holder, high viz jacket for boyfriend) :)
    - Laundry :)
    - Watch bake off! :)
    - Catch up on French book :)
    - Lights off by 11 :/Think it was a little later

    Today's goals will be nice and simple:

    - Track all food and drink
    - Stay within maintenance
    - 5 fruit & veg

    - Switch emails off when finished reading
    - Stay positive

    - Date night (following the rules about no phones etc.!)

    Just for today, Tuesday October 6th, I will

    • Run necessary errands✅
    •Walk❌
    •Meet with employee✅
    •Market practice and TCT✅


    I did not make it out for a walk yesterday, it was just too hectic with the girls and everything I needed to get done. But that’s two days in a row that I skipped my walk, so I need to make sure and get that in today. The baby didn’t sleep well last night, so I have been up since about 3:30 this morning. I am hoping I get a nap in today because the exhaustion is real.

    •Errands

    A nice day yesterday. Went out to a restaurant to eat for a first time for a little while, but was good and just had one course rather than opting for pudding (which I had considered). As a result, stayed within maintenance by some margin (I think anyway - the menu didn't have calories but I logged something I hope was similar in a similar restaurant).

    Yesterday's goals:
    - Track all food and drink :)
    - Stay within maintenance :)
    - 5 fruit & veg :/Just four, pizza for dinner was somewhat unnutritious!

    - Switch emails off when finished reading :|I did in the morning but not the afternoon
    - Stay positive :|

    - Date night (following the rules about no phones etc.!) :)
    - Speak to boyfriend in french :|Did this for like one minute, not sure that counts

    Today's goals:

    - Track all food and drink
    - Be in the green
    - 5 fruit & veg
    - No alcohol

    - Switch emails off when finished reading
    - Stay positive!

    - Ring mum
    - Sort out paperless statements
    - Read relationship articles
    - Talk to boyfriend in French
    - Read a bit of French book
    - Clean the bin
    - Write shopping list
    - Talk about mentoring with boyfriend
    - Lights off by 11




    Shopping list

    Not to encourage bad habits but I was at a gravel race sponsored by Oscar Blues beer few weeks ago and tried a session IPA named One-Y
    It’s delicious and only 100 calories.
