End of Day Twenty

Daily Updates



Hello lovelies, bit late after saying I wasn’t going to be late any more but here is my daily update for 18/09/14:

Breakfast: Nectarine 70kcal.

Total: 70kcal.

Lunch: 10 frozen raspberries 9kcal, 2 gala apples 104kcal, frozen mango chunks 132kcal *smoothie*.

Total: 245kcal.

Tea: Mashed potatoes 107kcal, boiled gammon 280kcal, white sauce 56kcal, boiled carrots 27kcal, boiled brocolli 7kcal, boiled cabbage 40kcal.

Total: 518kcal.

Dessert: *I have just realised that my profiteroles were never added to myfitnesspal* I ate 5 :-(, 242kcal.

Total: 242kcal.

Snacks: Chocolate square 54kcal.

Total: 54kcal.

I walked over 7 miles today to university and back, plus when I went shopping so the online website I use said I burnt more than this but I’ve put 485. I doubt it’s even possible to burn this much from moderately paced walking but regardless, I will never eat the calories I burn exercising!

So my overall input of food was 1,129kcal-485 exercise=644kcal.

Not bad! Pretty happy with that, sorry for the late update. I am going out tonight so will be drinking a lot and eating :-(. Life of a student! A lot of my friends are questioning me about why I don’t go out but I can hardly say because of the calories in the alcohol! Anyone had this experience?

Hello everyone :-).

I am writing this actually on the day I completed it, as promised and therefore am completely up to date (phew!). I am impressed to have stayed on until day nineteen! It will keep going to because I am really enjoying blogging my experiences with dieting and my weightloss, all of the likes and support you guys give me makes it even better, so thank you!

Today I was hungover and I didn’t have much of an appetite until I came home from doing 64 lengths of swimming and my stomach growled probably the loudest I’ve ever heard it. I was glad it was rumbling because I like my stomach to tell me when it is really hungry, not my head which is often the case.

 Anyway, here is the update for 17/09/14:

Breakfast: Nectarine 70kcal.

Total: 70kcal.

Lunch: Chilli con carne (I wasn’t even hungry I was just making it in bulk- 6 dinners worth! I pinched a bit to make sure it tasted ok, so this is a guesstimate of what I ate maximum) 150kcal.

Total: 150kcal.

Tea: Tesco vegetarian bean burger 225kcal, cherry bakewell tart (my second favourite after almond croissants! Can you see the running trend of almond here?) 215kcal- so unfair that it is so many calories for a tiny cake, low fat strawberry yogurt 100kcal (SO SORRY I ATE THIS LATER AND DIDN’T ADD IT TO MYFITNESSPAL).

Total: 540kcal.

Snacks: Baked beans 135kcal.

Total: 135kcal.

Exercise- 64 lengths of swimming burnt 333kcal.

2 cups of green tea, 1litre of water.

Total input: 895-333= 562kcal!

Wow. If only I could be hanging everyday without the amount of alcohol the day before! I know that I wasn’t hungry simply due to the chips I had at 4am, maybe they should count towards my calories for today? If so, my intake is 962kcal, which is still ok.

Hey lovelies,

I am finally getting up to date with my blogging woo! I’m writing this the day after I did it so I’m almost there, I’ll be getting wifi on Wednesday so then I’ll be more religious with it, honest! I am seventeen days into my journey and I can honest say there is a change! I weighed myself this morning and I am 10st 10lbs which is so so good for me, I haven’t been this in years and I’m not stopping now. I can’t quite believe I’m actually losing weight!

I’m living with two of my university friends this year and they’ve come with a very healthy, fit attitude to life and one girl has previously lost a lot of weight so she is an ‘expert’ or so she claims. I’m not going to let her govern me though as I know what works for me. She uses weight watchers and I don’t want to use the products as they often have more calories than the substitute foods! Also I watched her eat three biscuits this evening because she hadn’t eaten all of her points worth during the day- surely if you’re no hungry you shouldn’t eat? Just my opinion. She also wants to document our weight losses but I don’t want to. I am the heaviest and I’m just not doing it.

I thought it would be great to live with people keen on a healthy lifestyle but I’m now feeling pressure which I really don’t want and I don’t think will help my weight loss but we’ll see.

Anyway here is my update for yesterday (15/09/14):

Breakfast: 4x krackawheats 136kcal (these were actually eaten throughout the day to stop hunger, I ate two for breakfast).
Total: 136kcal.

Lunch: fruit cake 280kcal, gala apple 52kcal.
Total: 332kcal.

Tea: veggie tesco bean burger 225kcal, brown rice 216kcal, cherry tomato 16kcal, cucumber 8kcal, barbecue sauce 19kcal, green tea 0kcal.
Total: 484kcal.

Snacks: nectarine 70kcal, diet lemonade 2kcal.
Total: 72kcal.

Exercise- 64 lengths (25m pool) took me 45 minutes! Apparently that means I burnt 335 calories. I did 32 front crawl and 32 breast stroke.
– Half an hour walk burnt 122kcal!
Total: 457kcal.

Total input: 1,024- 457= 547 input.

Yay so happy with that, bring on tomorrow!
