So today's workout according to the plug and play list I'm using is Yoga/Pilates inspired. So I picked a 20 minute Cardio Yoga video from the list and gave it a go. I gave it my best shot. It made me warm and sweaty. But I'm not... Read more
5 days of exercise
Friday, February 24, 2017      8 comments

Well today makes five days of consistently exercising at least 10 mins a day. Yesterday I did my exercise video - but didn't go for a walk at lunch time - far too windy. So I convinced my ex (he didn't need much convincing) to go for a wal... Read more
Chicken Dilemmas and Organisation
Thursday, February 23, 2017      2 comments

I have a chicken dilemma. Well it's not really a dilemma - more of a problem. I bought a rotisserie chicken. I don't buy them very often. Because they are soo very tasty, I pick, and pick and pick. It's a weird thing to have no self control... Read more

Last night I went out for dinner at short notice with family. We had a lovely evening catching up and having a laugh. I ordered what I fancied off the menu. This morning I came to track yesterdays food - as we went to a chain pub ... Read more
Fat Girl Mentality
Monday, February 20, 2017      2 comments

Now I don't mean the title to be offensive. But I've noticed something about myself that I am describing as the 'fat girl mentality'. It's something I have been thinking on a lot over the last few days. I was never confident. Not in the way... Read more

I went to see my best friend yesterday. She is a wonderful person who is so full of life and enthusiasm. She has her insecurities same as I have mine and that's ok. She hasn't judged the situation I find myself in with my ex, she just liste... Read more
Tuck Shop Tribulations
Wednesday, February 15, 2017      1 comments

The last couple of days haven't been great foodwise. Finishing a big project at work coupled with a charity day meant yesterday I had entirely too much cake and not enough actual food during the day. I've gone to bed too late and not drank enoug... Read more
Sunday Dinner
Monday, February 13, 2017      2 comments

I go to my parents for dinner on Sunday. They tend to make big meals, and I always seem to end up over full, even when I try to restrict what I have. As much as they also have home cooked meals, there always seems to be something fried... Read more

I woke up this morning with the urge to exercise. I've had two quite sedentary days and this morning I could feel it. I've been thinking about restarting my exercises over the last week or so. I'm trying not to do too much at once - food tr... Read more
Food tracking
Friday, February 10, 2017      4 comments

Food tracking is making me much more conscious of what I am eating. I'm not snacking as much because I want to hit my targets. So far after 7 days, I was over 2000 calories on three days, and under 2000 on 4 days. On two days I was in the '... Read more
Swings and roundabouts

Yesterday I went to Nando's for a work meal. It meant I was well over the calorie counters at the end of the day - 500 calories over 2000, and 700 over my max limit for the day. Today I took a tin of soup to work, and had a ready meal tonig... Read more

I'm trying to cook more - I like easy recipes that don't have too many ingredients or fussiness. Hairy Bikers Spanish Chicken is very good in that regard. Yesterday I decided to use up some of the veggies in the house. I had an aubergi... Read more

Yesterday I didn't go to the tuck shop :) That's three days in a row. I bought a sandwich for lunch - not the usual 450 calorie Chicken Salad Baguette but a 350 calorie Chicken salad sandwich - apparently the lack on lemony mayo makes all t... Read more

Stress does funny things to us all. Some people thrive on it, some poeple don't. Some people buy shoes, some people buy chocolate. Today was a stressful day. Work was very busy and I was flapping mightily. I have too much to do and no time ... Read more
