It seems to be going well, I'm on a roll for exercise over the last few days and will... Tue, 26 Feb 2013 14:07:41 EST gaining... I seem to be gaining weight instead of losing it. Yes, I know yesterday I consumed the upper limit of my daily calories and fat content...however I also exercised a lot more and over the week I've eaten well I think. <BR> Now I can only really put my weight increase onto the fact that I am doing more strength exercise and hopefully it's muscle mass. I hope to see my weight decrease and/or my clothes feeling looser. I must also admit to struggling to completely follow any diet...I think I n... Thu, 7 Feb 2013 04:35:05 EST Falling of the wagon Well, I have been very lucky and had an amazing day yesterday. Lots of fun and once my exam was over I was overjoyed. I decided to treat myself. Unfortunately I completely lost track of how much I had eaten, and went way overboard :( I'm now suffering morning after guilt. I ate way too much and have to get back on track. <BR> It really has just emphasised the fact that I need to change my attitude towards food. I need to learn to control what I eat, and when I am treating myself not t... Tue, 22 Jan 2013 05:50:32 EST cold weather, cold me What do I eat when I'm ill and have no energy to cook? That will be my dilemma this weekend. I found this week an odd struggle, I was craving chocolate and fast food all week...managed to control myself on the whole. I don't expect miracles but would be nice to see that I've lost weight. What I haven't managed was my new exercise regime...I will have to work hard to make that a fixed part of my lifestyle. <BR> On a different note...isn't the snow lovely. I was smiling at university yeste... Sat, 19 Jan 2013 06:38:50 EST Long long day... Well, today has been a very long and stressful day. So I'm running on 2 hours sleep since I couldn't get a very temperamental program to work for a piece for work for uni. Then spent the day working on it every second I wasn't in lectures. On top of it I had an entire day just learning about concrete, which I really enjoy, but 9-5 with an hour lunch break all on concrete and running on 2 hours sleep was more than enough to try me today. <BR> Food wise, I've had an appalling day...I have j... Tue, 15 Jan 2013 14:01:51 EST It's a start What I am looking for is to lose around 13kg (bring me to 58kg). I know that I can reach this weight. Weight is the easiest thing to measure, though ideally I want to go down to a size 8/10 jean size. I also really just want to tone up; I don’t want that muffin top or the stomach or the large thighs. I’m only 21, I should be at peak fitness and in great shape, instead I’ve let things go, been too lax with what and how much I eat and have slowly put on the pounds till last winter 2012 I we...
