I recently signed up for the 1 Million Kilo Challenge.
The 1 Million Kilo Challenge will run for 10 weeks (starting Monday 30th January) and will promote healthy eating, exercise and happier lifestyles for everyone that joins.
The challenge will help keep you motivated with FREE health & nutrition advice, exercise and menu plans complete with recipes and videos, plus tools and trackers to keep you on track.
It is presented by the Australian TV channel – Channel 10, and I am using it as an opportunity to inspire me to be healthier and happier.
I have always wanted to go to a dietician – I eat fairly healthy most of the time and know the basics to healthy eating but sometimes you just need it all written out in front of you. The meal plans for this challenge will do that for me. I’m not going to follow them 100% – I will do the dinners and perhaps try the lunches but otherwise will eat pretty much as I normally do. I know that my seem like cheating but I have found that making small changes instead of a complete overhaul normally lead to better long-term results for me.
I have already started to make changes lately – I have stopped drinking soft drink, having water during the day and only soda water with a lemon, lime & bitters cordial at mealtime. I can’t give up that bit of flavour in my drink and I am slowly reducing the amount of cordial.
I have been working out on the Wii, roughly every 3 days for 30 minutes. I would like to do it more but life gets in the way. On the days that I don’t use the Wii I try to make sure to get some exercise in, whether it is just walking to the shops to do the groceries or some very vigorous vacuuming.
I am also being more mindful of what I am eating and trying to limit the amount of food that I eat after dinner, especially sweet foods. It might not seem like much but I am feeling better about how I am eating and will slowly make more changes.
So, to this week. Not much happening during the week, mostly only on Monday and Sunday. Monday morning we have Lily’s swimming lesson and then we’ll need to do the groceries for the week. I have to go in to the city to donate blood in the afternoon and then it’s back home for some relaxing.
Tuesday – Saturday will probably be spent around the house cleaning and getting ready for Sunday.
Sunday is Lily’s 2nd Birthday Party!! I can’t believe she is going to be 2. Time has gone so quickly. We are having a small party at the local swimming pool for Lily and the babies from our Mums Group. I’ll probably post photos next week.
So a quiet, yet rather big week this week!!
What do you have planned for this week? And how hard do you find it eat healthy?
