Post Christmas Detox: Day 2

So it’s day two of the post Cristmas detox, or getting back on track as it’s also known. I always find it much easier when I’m at work not to concentrate as much on food and not to snack inbetween meals, simply because I’m just too busy! We joked in the office when we returned after the Christmas holiday that by 2pm we were missing our afternoon cheese and crackers, but there’s some truth in this. I don’t know about you but in my house over Christmas we tend to pick at food throughout the day leaving us too full to eat proper meals. This all made me consider how long it takes us to learn now habits and how quickly we un-learn them leaving our stomachs screaming out for food when we really shouldn’t need it! With all this in mind I decided today to try and get back into not snacking between meals. I read the other day that we are often terrified of feeling hunger, but actually feeling hungry is okay, I’m not talking about starving yourself or missing meals here, but recognising that you feel hungry and managing to wait until your tea is ready rather than scoffing biscuits “while you wait” can be beneficial to your health.

Here’s what I ate today.
