So here it is, beautiful people, day two is at an end. I have had a pretty good day and have eaten only when my stomach is rumbling, which meant having a chocolate digestive. I ate it so quickly, I choked. I need to not do
this again because my body doesn’t like it. What has surprised me the most is how little food my body actually needs to survive and not feel unwell. Yesterday and today I have not felt sick or headachey which is what I usually feel when I diet. I am delighted to say I haven’t felt this once.
However, I have read enough articles and blogs to see that the third day of any diet you try is the worst so I am anxious to see what tomorrow brings. Luckily I am commuting to university tomorrow and will have lectures so I will be busy and minimal food will be eaten (hopefully)! I will be getting up earlier though so I’ll be interested to see if this changes my hunger pattern- I bet it does.
The one thing that I am concerned about is that my stomach will rumble loudly during my lectures. Please can it not? I’ve read online that if you push your stomach in then it will stop it so I will be trying this- baring in mind you know where your stomach situates in your body. I don’t know why but I get so embarrassed when my stomach rumbles but it’s not like I can help it? You’re not supposed to eat in lectures so what can I do?
Anyway, here is my daily update for 31/08/14:
Breakfast: 2x green teas 2kcal
Lunch: Vegetable soup 150kcal, sweetcorn 48kcal
Tea: (told you they were always bad and today is no exception. However, I was reminiscing on every Sunday dinner I’ve had because it is a tradition in my house that Dad cooks his fry up- made of chips, bacon, beans and buckets of ketchup/BBQ sauce. I had this once every single week and I was imagining the weight piling into me. Especially as I would usually not do anything in the day so no exercise and so all of that fat and grease would go straight to my stomach. Oh well luckily I didn’t have to have it, just had to bare the smell of it). Tesco cod fillet with cheddar cheese and chives 240kcal, sweet potato mash with horseradish sauce 194kcal, tomatoes 60kcal, frozen peas 55kcal.
Dessert: onken strawberry fat free yogurt 79kcal, mini millionaire shortbread bite 72kcal
Snacks: Large orange at around 2pm 90kcal, tesco milk chocolate digestive biscuit 85kcal, raw tomato 20kcal
Exercise: JustDance4 230kcal and treadmill 192kcal burnt.
1.5 litres water
Overall total input: 672kcal.
This is amazing! Sooo happy with this and I’m going to keep going!
I made a crucial error this evening as I mentioned to my mum that my overall intake was 672kcal and she exclaimed “now that is just bloody stupid”. I proceeded to tell her that that was including the exercise I had done and she relaxed a bit. I am prepared for this reaction from my mum because she finds it so hard to lose weight, like me so she will throw negative thoughts at me. I just need to remain positive!
The best part of this journey so far is I’m not even feeling that hungry and I hope this continues, I think the exercise is helping and the amount of water I am drinking. I have kept myself busy too, sorting things out so this has helped me and I’m well on track to being my desired weight. Especially because I went on the scales again this evening and was 11st 0.8lb. SO HAPPY. Have not been this weight in years and it’s just motivating me to keep at it. I can do this and if I can, so can you!
