Ditching the diets….The perils of being complacent!

I’m pretty sure that if any of you have been on a ‘diet’ or healthy lifestyle plan, you get to a point where you’re happy and then complacency starts setting in…

This has been partly true for me for the last couple of weeks particularly where exercise is concerned. I’ve lost the inches and overall I’m happy with how I look, so even though I’d promised myself to exercise this week, I made excuses not to.

What annoys me about this more than not being as toned as I could be, is the effect its had on my mind and body. I’ve had far less energy as ive not been using starch to aid recovery and my back is starting to ache again, something that was almost non existent when I was doing the body weight exercises so my core must’ve weakened again. What’s worse than that though, is wearing a fab dress and a beloved pair of killer heels to a wedding reception, then having to sit down because my back can’t cope with the heels, nothing comes between me and my heels, no amount of blisters, tottering, or walking like ive had an ‘accident’ can put me off wearing them but a painful back is another matter!

On top of this we had ‘cheat meal’ last night, we had our usual tandoori chicken with rice, but I also polished off some sort of spicy potato dish, now I don’t know for sure but I think there must’ve been wheat in there somewhere because Iiterally felt like id been punched in the gut this morning, not good 😦 there was me being a piglet thinking it would be ok..

So, the moral of the story is – don’t rest on your laurels or for me ‘Dont rest on your lazy arse and don’t eat something if you don’t know what’s in it!’

Happy Saturday everyone!
