Motivation and Menus

I’ve found myself just not having the mental energy to really watch my diet carefully. I was stuck in the house with a sick child most of the week, missing college and bored stiff, generally filling the gaps with food. On the upside it’s nothing like the binges of old, when I was fat and lazy but the downside? It seems every time I let my eating slip the urge to get off my bum and onto my pedals gets smaller and the inertia sets in.

I woke up this morning so glad that Friday was here. Why? because I had a plan. I had this weeks menu and oddly enough, knowing that I had to do it ( I made a promise) I discovered that I was itching to get on my bike and out riding tomorrow no matter how it turns out.The conclusion I have come to is that it isn’t just a case of doing one thing right but a combination of meal with mind.

Let’s see what tomorrow brings, either way I have homemade flapjacks so it couldn’t possibly be all bad could it?

    Join the club, I find that if I am off the bike I start eating more rubbish foods.

      Glad to hear it Cheryl. Words cannot express how much I enjoyed trying the menus, or how much I’ve learned from it, or even how many new friends I’ve made. Thanks.
