I'm guilty of this as well, trying to make a conscious effort to sit and eat slowly but it's hard sometimes just not enough hours in the day
Sometimes I feed the kids, clean up after them the sit down and eat, sometimes it just doesn't work....but sometimes it's a great 15mins I can actually taste the food!
me. No exercise for the French either - just incidental which is so different to what we're drummed into here. Although even Michelle Bridges says its 80% diet and 20% exercise and that's her bread and butter so to speak!
I do hear all of you ladies- it is sooo hard to savour meals when you have little people running around. I had to
wait until the baby was down for her nap and the bigger kids entertained with craft to boil my poor egg and eat it in peace! Haha
Incidental exercise is right. We in Oz tend to hop in the car a lot more readily whereas Europeans walk a lot more as a mode of transport.
Since having bub I walk so much less than I used to. I used to walk to and/or from work (25 minutes each way), now I feel like I'm perpetually running late so I drive heaps more. I need to work on that. 😐
Mental note: I must stop blaming the baby. If I really wanted to do these things I absolutely could/would/should. I have it in me. I just lack the motivation and discipline at the moment.

Beforev I forget!
Breakfast - one egg on toast, two cups of white tea.
Lunch - beef and veggie soup.
Afternoon tea - one white coffee and three rice cakes with tuna and WW cottage cheese.
Dinner - steak, crunchy potatoes and ratatouille.
Water, green tea and one coke zero throughout the day.
Inspiration for the new week tomorrow. New day, fresh start 😃
Weigh in day! I've been sick this week so haven't managed to do any yoga and have had some very poor food moments but then was very good when my husband bought, ice cream, chocolate and potato chips on the weekend and managed to resist all but one small scoop of ice cream - and it wasn't good enough to be worth the calories.
Starting weight: 66kg
Last week's weight: 65kg
Today's weight: 63.8kg
I had planned on doing 3 fast days last week, but only did the 2, so haven't had a fast day since last Wednesday; so have had 4 days of normal eating in a row. I usually don't like to leave it that many days between fasts, even though it's recommended you do 2 nonconsecutive days, I feel like I'm slacking off! My aim this week is for 3 fast days, being today, Wednesday and Friday.
I went a bit off track over the weekend. A few too many wines on Saturday night meant I was hung over on Sunday and ate lots of chocolate.
So I am back on board today, starting with the gym this morning. It's raining so I will have to drive.
Hope everyone else is off to a great start this week.
