Forgot the Salad - Day 3

Work today so I was occupied. It's easy to forget  resolutions but I did my best.

I read recently that to lose weight you should eat 5 or 6 smaller meals a day. That way you don't get hungry, blood sugar levels don't fluctuate wildly and you don't feel hungry. Consequently there's less likelihood of over eating. I tried it recently and I have a feeling it will work providing the system isn't abused i.e. being tempted to have bigger meals at the main 'eating times' of breakfast, lunch and dinner. Doing 5 or 6 is a new habit and, like most habits it's hard to break. Getting the portion size right is difficult too. Eating what seems like miniscule amounts for dinner when you are used to a plate full just doesn't seem natural at first. But like everything else, you have to get used to it I suppose.

It has to be combined as well, with exercise of the right sort. But I'm a little way away from sorting out an exercise regime. I need to grow accustomed to a whole new fat to fit regime first, paying attention to this week's resolutions through the daily grind with all it brings in the way of distractions and interruptions and just plain getting on with life generally. This getting fit thing has to become my 'life generally'. So I've got to learn to fit it in with everything else.

And I've just remembered, I forgot the salad!!!
