Bizarre I don’t need sweets

19 Feb

Im starting to feel as though I don’t actually need sweets/biscuits/chocolate. I still want them but its not totally overwhelming like it was before!

I think a help in the attitude change was a radio news bulletin I heard yesterday. It stated that the calories listed on packets are underestimated by 30%. Virtually all packaged foods underestimate the calories content. That combined with the horse meat scandal has just turned me off processed food. Who knows what you’re eating!

Now that being said I’m still eating too much I feel like I’m a blow fish that has just puffed up… Ugh!!!



Day two (again)

14 Feb

Today went fine, yummy dinner made by the bf. chicken stuffed with sage and onion stuffing and dauphinoise potatoes! Nom non non…

Oh I weighted myself also!

13 Feb

I weighted in at 8st 10 this am. I think I’ve just levelled off weight wise. 🙂


13 Feb

Day one again, Alls well today. Absolutely wrecked after work! I was supposed to go to the gym tonight but decided against it. I arrived home after 8 and just wasn’t feeling it 😛

Anywho, breakfast 7.30am was three almonds and two hard boiled eggs.



Snack at about 12pm was small bag popcorn


Lunch at about 2pm was a salad similar to the picture, lots of greens chicken ham and basil pesto.


Dinner was about 8.30pm whole wheat pasta with veg and a vegetable tomato sauce.


I also had a snack of a cracker with cheese.


I’m looking forward to tomorrow, the bf is cooking! 🙂


Feeling a bit down

11 Feb

Lent begins on Wednesday, and so does my no sugar round two. If you couldn’t tell my quest had become somewhat lacklustre in the last week or two. I however broken some life long bad habits. I have stopped eating biscuits after dinner and I am not half as dependant on sugar as I was before this journey began. As of Wednesday I will begin logging and tracking my intake because I haven’t been taking responsibility for what I have been eating, leading to me feeling lethargic and down. 😦

I have actually been a bit depressed in the last few days, (sparked by silly things) then I begin feeling insecure and emotionally hungry. I eat too much, then I feel fat. It’s a bloody cycle.

I met some friends on Sunday, who I absolutely LOVE but by the end of the day I felt like heifer. They are great but super slim and very into their health and weight, which is great but just makes me so self-conscious.

Today, I honestly felt as though I had gained a stone over the last couple of days. One day I feel slim and attractive the next I feel huge and hideous. It’s ludicrous really! I don’t know, I don’t feel as though I have anyone that I could truly confide in and trust, that I want to talk to- once I’ve talked about it that person will always know that I have got serious issues. I’m not a fan of highlighting my weakness’. I have started toying with the idea of going to talk to someone about my low self esteem .


WIAW- but it’s Thursday…

7 Feb

So I got my days all confused all day yesterday I thought it was Tuesday, so today is wiaw. I’m on holiday staying a hotel and you know what that means, buffet breakfast! So I was bold.



They had this pancake machine so I couldn’t resist! They are the two smallest pancakes ever, and yes that is syrup on them. Woops oh well. I also had a tomato, half a sausage, two poached eggs and a black pudding.



That’s two mini soft tacos and a mixed salad. So yum.



A starter sized portion of prawn and crab linguini. Wow it was absolutely delish!

My legs are wrecked after a day of walking and exploring. 🙂

Work out motivation

2 Feb

I arrived at the gym today at 5.30, and guess what?! The gym closes at 5.30. Sucks for me. Ugh. I was REALLY looking forward to a sweaty session. Ah well, I’ll head first thing in the am.

I really have to get in shape for the 10km I’m going to do in April. I must also buy my entrance to the race, along with paying my rent, car tax and two month electricity bill, all of which are due this month. Why is it that expenses seem to come at once?

So plan for tomorrow is 7km walk run on treadmill, with up and down incline. Then strength, apparently a 4 minute routine, of 20 seconds intense, 10 seconds rest. So the plan at this stage is to do the four minutes like this: squat, lunge, high knees, squat, lunge, high knees, squat, lunge. Then ab work and free weights.




TGIF: thank god it’s February!

1 Feb

Oh my oh my January was the longest most boring month on record, I’m pretty sure that because I was only working about an average 30 hours per week as opposed to the usual 40-45. On the plus side is February now which means, it’s gym joining time. Woohoo.
Here’s a pick of me in my running in the cold clothes…


The gym is pretty nice, I’m off work at 5pm tomorrow so I’ll nip over after work to sign up and work out. My plan is to work out Sunday and Tuesday too, because I’m away Wednesday to Friday. Then get into a regular pattern, of three to four times per week.

Sugar free is going okay I’m not really hardcore about it tbh, but I think I’ll plod along as I am until Lent then kick it up a notch.

Looking forward to pay day, come on the 6th. 🙂

Road trip.

27 Jan

I’ve signed my self up for a 10km in April… Yes, for real. By April I will be able to run 10km! I can’t believe it, I can’t wait to be able to run and not feel like absolute death.

Going away for a night with two of my girlfriends. It’s a seriously fancy pants hotel and I can’t wait! It’s in a city about 2.5hours drive. I’m just so excited.

Still not taking sugar, the meal out last night was a challenge, we went back to a friends house after and there were tea biscuits and cakes. I wanted a biscuit with my tea but didn’t bother and then the craving passed. Woop!


Another good workout

26 Jan

Had another good run/walk/run, today so enjoyable. Strength training after too, had me feeling like a million dollars and cutting out the fruit has seriously helped me eliminate sugar and feel good/ not deprived about it.

Just heading out for dinner with some girl friends. I’m in the mood for fish, yumm, can’t wait!
