this diet thing is actually working, I feel healthier and more energised AND I’ve lost 3 1/2lbs in 3 weeks
yesterday I went out and wore these high-waisted black denim shorts that have been a bit too tight on me for a long time. not only were they not too tight, but I didn’t have a little belly that I couldn’t suck in. I didn’t even feel like I needed to suck in. for the first time probably ever, I liked how my body looked in my clothes without me intentionally covering anything up.
I’m just finally so damn happy with my body and I honestly thought this day would never come. thank fuck it has.
if my average is 69.57, would they round it up or down? anyone know??
today wasn’t exactly a good day, but i’m still proud because i am eating a lot better and a lot less than i was a week and a half ago. also i haven’t had crippling stomach ache after eating like i have forever, and believe me that is definitely a good thing.
so, today’s food diary - and again i didn’t get up early enough to have lunch so:
Breakfast: porridge with added protein powder, one glass of orange juice
Snack 1: one serving each of red grapes and cherries
Cinema food: diet coke and small salted popcorn
Frankie ‘n’ Benny’s food: their lighter option of small portion of spaghetti bolognese and side salad, with a diet coke
so yeah, it wasn’t great, but it wasn’t awful. overall i’m eating healthier, exercising more and generally feeling more energised and happier in my body.
i am ready for my first body positive summer!
Breakfast: one piece wholemeal toast with margarine, a 0% fat Greek yoghurt, 30g mango pieces
Snack 2: vanilla protein shake, two low fat chocolate flavour rice cakes with sliced banana on top (seriously delicious)
Dinner: 125g of wholemeal pasta with low fat and low salt tomato and bacon sauce, topped with half handful of grated mature cheddar, one green apple
(I got up too late to fit in lunch too…)
Breakfast: one slice of wholemeal toast with margarine, 0% fat strawberry flavour greek yoghurt, black coffee with one sugar
Snack 1: vanilla protein shake, homemade berry juice ice lolly
Lunch: half of one wholemeal pitta with lettuce, cucumber and sliced turkey breast. one green apple, and orange squash (with no added sugar)
Snack 2: pre-packaged strawberry fruit flakes, 30g mixed seeds (pumpkin, sesame and flax)
Dinner: steamed salmon fillet, small baked potato and garden salad with 1tsp herb dressing
um okay so this new diet thing i’ve been doing is actually going pretty well so as motivation for myself this blog may become slightly healthy-eating centred with regards to my personal posts. just fyi
