Maintenance

Daily Updates

Wow I haven’t written on this blog in so so long so I definitely owe you lot an update!

I’m currently 10 stone 9.5lbs and the wedding is 4 weeks away today. I don’t think I’m going to manage to lose enough weight to be 9 stone 13lbs as I’m going to be honest with you I’ve hit a binging wall! Every time I don’t eat very much, I binge so much the next day and eat the calories I otherwise would have lost weight on. So unfair. It got so hard and I just felt like shit so then I concentrated on trying to just eat 1400 but I can only maintain on that amount, it is very hard to lose weight. I think that might be my basal metabolic rate, or around the 1500 mark so what is the point in me trying to lose weight on that? It would take months! No one can weight that long.

I’ve decided that eating 1200 calories is hell on earth, the majority of the time unless I feel ill or extremely bloated?

I don’t really have a recent picture of my body but maybe I’ll take one soon, there’s not much change- maybe a bit of weight loss off my stomach and my legs are more muscular because I’ve been walking so much! I have been walking 10,000-15,000 steps everyday.

Anyway, I will try and post more but I can’t promise it, my degree takes over my life and living with other people makes it harder to find time to be by myself.

Day 6 of 2015- 35 Days of 1200 calories

Daily Updates

Hello everyone, can you believe it? Two blog posts in one day and now it is a daily update! Just like I used to do!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d37/73850620/files/2015/01/img_3356.jpgThis was my breakfast- green tea and one piece of brown bread with nutella. 167kcal. I wasn’t very hungry this morning which surprised me and so I didn’t eat my usual porridge./home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d37/73850620/files/2015/01/img_3362.jpgThis was my lunch and it was delicious and healthy as usual, I had an apple in between breakfast and lunch. I had sliced cucumber, cherry tomatoes, one cooked beetroot and tuna with 10g of tar tar sauce. I then had two rice cakes too at 29kcal each. 284kcal.

After lunch I had a caramel bar, as I have shown you in a previous blog:

caramel-bar 134kcal.

For dinner I had the same as yesterday but plain white rice instead of risotto. I didn’t really want the white rice as I don’t really like it and it makes me bloated but my mum made it so I couldn’t really say no. It came to 473kcal.

Following dinner I had this lovely jelly at 18kcal:

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d37/73850620/files/2015/01/img_3365.jpgAfter this at around 8pm I drank a low calorie hot chocolate at 38kcal. Delicious. Before bed I was feeling very dizzy and still am, but I know that is just my body burning off more calories than it is taking in and so I must just be dehydrated. I will drink more tomorrow.

My total intake was 1,200 exactly and I’m still on track with my new goal. Day 6 complete!

I JUST HAD TO UPLOAD THIS. I cannot remember the last time I was this weight, it just has never happened. I have never seen this number on scales! I know I keep saying this but I truly mean it, it is amazing and I’m keeping on going!

IMG_2559.JPG

 

This was some of my lunch, I had a huge bowl of this delicious frozen fruit from Tesco which is 90p for about 200 grams! I had 80g of it for only 72kcals and it takes me ages to eat and really fills me up- 10/10 I would recommend!

End of Day Twenty-Seven

Hello everyone,

Today was slightly better but still not great. I am off home tomorrow so hopefully my weekend will be healthier- I am determined to make it so, after having looked at some hardcore thinspo.

Today was really hard and there were multiple times where I hate to refuse food and refuse to go into shops. In the morning my friend wanted to go into the shop for breakfast and I originally agreed, thinking I would get something too but NO my inner thin person spoke to me and refused to let me- thank goodness. She came out with 5 cookies and I didn’t even enter the store.

Secondly at lunch, my friends were craving Mcdonalds so I went into the restaurant and watched as everyone around me devoured chips and burgers and I simply ordered a cup of tea. The man behind the counter couldn’t even understand that I didn’t want any food- what the hell. Anyway, I watched her eat a cheeseburger, six chicken nuggets, chips and a chocolate milkshake- thing is, she’s skinny so where is the fairness in that? I also realised that I walked 7 miles today and am now, obviously, shattered.

Here is my update for today (25/09/14):

Breakfast: 4 Cream crackers 140kcal, marmite 9kcal, butter 72kcal, nectarine 70kcal.

Total: 291kcal. (In fairness, I ate these crackers across a four hour period)

Lunch: 1 large raw carrot 54kcal.

Total: 54kcal.

Tea: 1 Fish shop sausage 235kcal, 1 portion of chips 655kcal, mango yogurt 203kcal.

Total: 1,093kcal.

Snacks: Tea with milk 10kcal, 2 jammie dodgers 150kcal, extra strong mints 30kcal.

Total: 190kcal.

Overall input was 1,626kcal- exercise of 439kcal burnt= 1,187kcal.

Actually not too bad! I just want to only be eating that amount without having to exercise to get it down. I don’t agree with eating calories you burnt from exercise- pointless? Anyway, quite proud of how little I did eat compared to my friends! Now for some more thinspo and bed.

Hello everyone,

Here is my update for 23/09/14. A pretty good day but then I drank alcohol. However, I was sick SO MUCH from the alcohol and so probably next to none of this is still in my body. I have realised that dieting and drinking alcohol just cannot go together and I’m as good as done with drinking. I don’t even like clubbing that much so I’m going to just find something else to do with my spare time- like a society or UNI WORK! I can’t believe I was sick and it was so much. It did kind of make me think ‘good’ though because it meant all the toxins and calories were no longer in my body.

This morning I noticed my flat mates looking at my stomach and I think I’ve definitely lost weight. They were looking at it with an almost concerned look on their face. I couldn’t be happier. I think the major factor that’s contributed to my weight loss is the swimming. I am currently 10st 10lb. I ALWAYS write 11 just in habit, how bad. I am no longer 11 and I never want to be again- wow that’s a pretty good feeling!

Anyway here is the update for 24/09/14:

Breakfast: Nectarine 70kcal.

Total: 70kcal.

Lunch: Cod fish fingers 150kcal, large carrot 54kcal, low fat houmous 90kcal, barbecue sauce 19kcal.

Total: 311kcal.

Dinner: Chilli con carne 150kcal, Brown rice 152kcal, barbecue sauce 21kcal.

Total: 323kcal.

Snacks: Bakewell tart 215kcal, Mango chunks 75kcal, club chocolate bar 118kcal. THEN 880kcal of white wine.

Total: 1288kcal.

I swam 64 lengths in the mornng burning 402 calories and walked about 3 miles 182kcal.

So my overall intake for the day was 1992-584=1408kcal.

But, as I said, I was sick and I’m pretty sure all of my dinner and the wine came up. I feel so rough now though and am going back to bed.

Daily Updates

Hello everyone,

Just another boring daily update I’m afraid, nothing too exciting. I am realised that my blog has actually gotten quite boring over the past few weeks that I haven’t had wifi but don’t worry as I’ll be posting a lot more interesting things. If anyone has any requests also, please let me know.

You’ll be pleased to hear that I am now swimming! I am going to try and swim 2/3 times a week depending on how busy my week is. I love swimming and I’m writing this having swum twice now and it’s just so good.

However, as you can see from myfitnesspal, today was quite a bad day because… I WENT OUT AND DRANK AROUND 800 CALORIES WORTH OF WHITE WINE. 800 calories… I’m not even kidding. I hate alcohol. I have had enough of it and all it does is make you stupid and bloated and feel sick. Had I not drunk the alcohol, my day still wouldn’t have worked because I had a 4am chips. Nightmare- not as many calories as when I went to Mcdonalds but still pretty bad.

Anyway, here is my update for 16/09/14:

Breakfast: 1 nectarine 70kcal.

Total: 70kcal.

Lunch: A chocolate fruit club bar 118kcal, gala apple 52kcal, Sainsbury carrots with chunky houmous 135kcal.

Total: 305kcal.

Dinner: Chicken and ham pie (homemade) 200kcal, roasted potatoes 202kcal, carrots 17kcal, green tea 0kcal.

Total: 419kcal.

Snacks: 4x krackawheat 136kcal, white wine 800kcal, chips 400kcal.

Total: 1,336kcal.

Exercise: I walked 5 miles at a moderate pace so approx. 242kcal burnt.

Total input: 2130-242= 1888kcal.

This is SO BAD (yes, I know I’m beginning to say this a lot) but actually not AS bad as some other days and not as bad as the last time I went out drinking. I burnt off those chips today in one swim session so its not all bad. Sometimes I wonder if splitting the days into calories is the best method, perhaps having a weekly amount of calories. Or would that just be a lot of big numbers and be very confusing? I think I’ll stick to daily.

Thanks for reading guys and todays one will be up shortly and I will then be up to date!
