The buck stops here. Today. Right now.
Today is Tuesday 6 December 2022. Today I change my lifestyle for good.
Up until now I’ve been fairly successful, improving my habits to lose weight, get fit and become healthier.
But today is the day I solidify my choices, my habits and my decisions, and lock them in permanently.
I’m standardising my diet, and weighing and measuring my food. This will help me keep track of how much I eat, and where my macros are.
Breakfast: A blueberry smoothie. 1 cup frozen blueberries, 1 scoop whey protein (today I used Vanilla Ice Cream flavour), 1 scoop collagen powder, water. Total calories: 220.
Lunch: 1/2 cup any lean protein (today is prawns), 1 cup white rice, green veggies (as much as I want). Total calories: 435.
Dinner: 1/2 cup any lean protein, 1 cup white rice, green veggies or salad (as much as I want), 1 TSP fat / dressing. Today is more prawns for dinner, and broccoli and rice. Total calories: 500.
Snacks: I’ll be avoiding snacks, but if really hungry I’ll have eggs, bananas, carrots and apples, whenever I want.
Drinks: Water, soda water, black tea, whisky. No limit. I’m not a big drinker but I do enjoy a shot of single malt whisky most nights. Alcohol is not a problem for me, so I’ll keep on having my whisky!
I’ll see how I go with this menu locked in, and then reassess at the end of the month.
Out of bounds: chocolate, junk food, hot chips (fries), cakes, biscuits, muesli bars, bread.
Exercise: Walking half an hour a day, plus an hour of weights and cardio at the gym every day.
This is my plan. Full accountability, full honesty.
