My Food Diaries

June 2013

I have decided to start a different eating plan for the next two weeks to hopefully cut down on the Lycra I will need to wear under my fabulous at Fifty dress!

With advice from GymGuyMark I have cut out certain foods and added more of others. I have also, voluntarily, decided to stop alcohol and sweets till the 11th June. Madness has well and truly set in, my friends. I have started this page to try to keep myself on track and hopefully to prove that changing the way you eat does not have to be boring. I am well aware that this is not the way of eating advocated by some fitness professionals but because of my job and my lifestyle, GymGuyMark and I worked out the best way for me to organise things.

Come 12th June, will I slip back into my old ways, possibly, but as I keep saying, life is all about balance and if I can prove to myself that this works, then so what if I have the odd bacon roll or cake, I will hopefully have established the will power to step back to the plan!

So here you are, what Geraldine ate today was …
