Redeveloping Good Habits...

After the heartwarming discussion I had with my Dad concerning my weight loss efforts things have sort of fallen into place. My exercising has been consistent and I'm really paying attention to my food intake. I measure my food and make entries on Myfitnesspal. It really helps because I at least, have a fair idea of how many calories I'm taking in. 

I also started doing squats. Trust me when I say it's no joke. Doing overhead squats with the exercise ball helps me work my arms, back and thighs at the same time. I love that cos even with exercise I love to multitask ;-). 

My water intake has also increased significantly. It's not even noon and I've almost finished the 1.5L bottle of water sitting on my desk.
My desk is always a crazy mess; no matter how much I tidy it up.

And my veggies intake has increased significantly. In addition to the cabbage, lettuce and peppers, I've discovered these.

They consist of peas, carrots, green beans and sweetcorn. I use these because it is more affordable to buy  as compared to getting the individual components separately. I do plan on trying the oriental mix version too. 

I also decided to take it easy on the scale. I know I said I would post my weekly weigh ins before but, I don't want to discourage myself with a number. Imagine how crazy I would go if after all the hard work the scale doesn't budge. The muscle theory does not really stop me from feeling bad and I would hate to do that to myself. I may weigh in monthly but for now I would like to focus on the good habits I'm redeveloping.
