I don't talk about my job very often partly because it's quite uncertain. I work as a supply teacher, sometimes I'll be in a school for a few months and other times I'll be there for a day or half a day. This can make life quite hard to plan for at times.
This effected how successful I was at my February challenge. While I was working full time or at least nearly full time, planning what I would eat was easy and fitting in all the fruit and veg I wanted to eat was relatively unchallenging. Then I had two weeks off. I was hoping for only one week as holiday but as I work over three different local education authority areas there were two weeks where there wasn't much work. The first week I still woke up and was ready to work and had none booked in. This can get a bit frustrating as I can't plan to do anything else. I find myself eating due to boredom and not planning what I'm going to eat. This week was also combined with my dad's birthday, pancake day, meeting up with several friends, and Chinese New Year. I couldn't plan as easily as I like to and, so, basically, I gave up.
I think I might try to have a ten a day day each week and I definitely feel that I'm thinking more about what I eat, which is what this was about really.
I gave myself a different challenge for March which I'll share more on later
Do you set yourself monthly goals or challenges? What about New Years resolutions anyone still keeping up with those?
