Day 2 - muscles aching..

But in a good way, though will be interesting to see how the body can cope with exercising every day for next 88 days..! So far so good, fingers crossed.
Getting into a routine of exercise is going to be an important part of the learning during KB. I've always done some form of exercise (personal training or jogging mainly) but not been able to maintain the regularity (work busyness is an easy excuse!). The only time I was consistently exercising was when I trained for my first 10k race quite a few years ago now, and I remember how strong I felt mentally as well as physically. I miss that feeling and want to get back into that through this program (and hopefully beyond).
The 75% diet was a bit of a struggle today as I had a business lunch and then another work dinner (buffet, much easier to control strangely, one helping only and left quite a bit on plate). I was conscious of the thoughts I had and realise that most of the over-eating is social eating (my colleague kept piling food on my plate at lunch - culturally a courteous/friendly gesture) because I was actually full pretty quickly, and anything I ate over and above was just surplus/sociable behaviour.
Wondering if we can condition our minds so that eating becomes more functional than social, and our food intake will naturally decrease...no doubt there will be lessons on this in the weeks to come!
