Steps To Success

I have made myself a few 'rules' to follow while trying to lose weight. These aren't hard and fast rules because every time I impose a strict rule on myself I just want to do the opposite. They are more of a guide for me and I believe if I do nothing else but follow these few simple rules then I can't get myself in too much trouble:

  • Walk to and from work every day- 25 minutes each way, pretty easy because there is no other way for me to get there
  • Have my Optifast shake for breakfast every day- this is just so I have breakfast, not because I particularly feel I have to have an Optifast shake, I am just too lazy to make anything else at 7am
  • Avoid the biscuit jar at work- which is always full of tim tams, mint slices, caramel crowns and chocolate royals
  • Bring my lunch from home- this is as much about being healthy as it is about me being a tight arse
  • No drive thru- I used to be a bit addicted to late night drive thru, but since a friend of mine has been sick with cancer I feel repulsed by putting that kind of crap in my body
  • Alcohol no more then once a week- this has also been quite easy because I know a few guys with alcohol problems or who are alcoholic and it has really made me start to detest alcohol and how it can screw people up

  1. Great rules, Tully! And I know what you mean about the shake for breakfast - when I was on Herbalife, having my shake in the morning became a habit of having something in the morning, when normally the 15 minutes that I would spend preparing and eating breakfast would often be spent sleeping for 15 minutes longer!

    If you want any help with keeping on track with these rules, feel free to join me and Sarah-I on Push And Be Pushed.

    Good luck! The hardest goal for me would be resisting those biscuits. O_O


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
