    Default New Year, New Me, New Food?

    Is anyone else going to be a walking cliche and embark on a new diet when the new year rolls in? I am!

    I really need to get rid of my unhealthy habits. I eat junk food and take out far too often, and in general I'm a terrible eater - I will eat nothing all day and then bloat myself at night with a massive meal. I need to get on track.

    I think having a regular 9-5 is going to help, I always thrive when I have a routine, back when I was in the UK I was doing amazing with my diet because I planned all of my meals around work. I definitely want to do packed lunch for work - to save money and to also rule out any temptations for cakes and processed foods.

    I'd like to eat more plant based meals in the new year. I won't give up a lot of meat and dairy, but if I could do plant based breakfast and lunch 3-4 times a week I would notice a difference in my eating habits I think. Plus it's sooooo cheap! Beans and lentils are super cheap and so easy to jazz up with spices and herbs!

    Pheesh and I also got a really nifty slow cooker/pressure cooker which will come in super handy for making lovely veggie soups when winter rolls in. There's also a porridge and yoghurt setting

    New year, new me. All that bollocks. My diet is awful and I've drank too much over the last few months. Regular exercise, better eating habits, keep a detailed food diary.

    I have a friend's stag do on 10th Feb so I want to be in reasonable shape by then. I still won't look amazing but I'll be better. We're all going as WWF wrestlers and I want to look decent as Rowdy Roddy Piper

    We'll be walking cliches together! I will support your eating of beans and lettuce and you can support my eating of beans and lettuce!

    I'm trying to eat less junk food and cut down my portion size- that's my main issue. Batch cooking and breaking down into smaller amounts if helping a lot.


    listen to the silence, let it ring on

    Today for lunch I legit had home-made bean bites and carrot sticks.


    Then when I got home I ate 5 chocolate chip cookies.... Small steps right?
