I am starting the No Diet Diet program tomorrow and the first task is to not watch television all day. Now, that is going to be hard because although I don't generally watch a lot of TV during the day, I do like to sit down and watch the news and have a few other progs that I normally watch. Getting out of the habit of automatically sitting down on the sofa and switching the TV on is going to be difficult but I guess that's the whole point. This program is all about breaking those bad habits and using the time more creatively and importantly in a more healthy and fulfilling way.
I've also decided on my two other tasks that I am going to do in my first week, in addition to the daily tasks specified. Firstly, I am going to spend one day sitting in a different chair or at the other end of the sofa. The idea of this again is to break the habit of always doing the same thing. I know, it sounds like it should be easy and relatively simple but I think I am going to find this a challenge as I am very much a creature of habit. The second thing I am going to do, which to be honest I feel rather apprehensive about, is yoga. Carla has kindly lent me a DVD which includes some yoga exercises on it, which I am going to have a go at and see if I can master. I am not sure what to expect and I feel apprehensive about trying it for the first time.
Progress and updates on how it is all going will appear over the coming week. I am also keeping track of my weight each week and I will let you know how I get on.
