Busy Mum, the difference a few daily habits make to weight loss.

I talk a lot about Blood Sugar Stabilisation…
It’s sounds like a fancy term…
I could talk Science and hormones, it’s ok though I’m not going to!…
So in real terms, how does stabilising blood sugar effect wether you as a busy Mum are celebrating the fact that your shape is changing or are you left feeling unhappy that your favourite clothes don’t fit…
Well how about a Monday Morning where you struggle out of bed, try and wake the children, help get them ready for school, prepare the children’s breakfast thinking you will do yours after, after a struggle everyone is ready, “oh my god look at the time!” Pack every one and everything into the car, jump in, battle the traffic and get to school for the drop off, find a space, make sure everyone has everything they need, wave them off, drive away, you stop somewhere for fuel or a coffee and then the smell of sugary warm pastry hits you…
See picture above…
Suddenly you are very aware of the empty void feeling in your stomach, you press your face against the glass (the only thing between you and a sugary breakfast) the sugar glistens, you start salivating…
You are trying to be healthy, so you try to be strong…
But it could be ages before you get something to eat and then for it to be healthy it may take preparation and who has time for that? “Yep, I will take that one, in fact put it in a bag to go” it can be eaten on the go- saves precious time…
If the above scenario is a “just this once” then it’s not much of a problem…
It’s when that becomes the habit, it’s when things are repeated over and over, that’s when it adds up…
It will take a conscious effort, but how would the above scenario play out if you managed to have a quick, planned and ideally balanced breakfast?
Or some balanced snacks you take with you, that could have at least taken the edge off the hunger until you get chance to have something balanced…
Those pastries may still look appealing, but it would be easier to pass on a satisfied stomach…
What if that was your on going habit, what kind of effect could that have?
Like I say, you’re only a few habits from making progress…

Thanks and kind regards,
