Morning campers.

Come and confess all on the Spreadsheet of Fabulousness

So only three weeks left. I know that things have been moving quite satisfactorily for some of you, so hopefully these last three weeks can see a few more of those pesky pounds disappear.

I had a bit of an altercation with some sticky toffee pudding this weekend (at the PILs) so I've got my work cut out over the next few days to undo the damage!

Off for a run shortly ...

Evening ladies.
My first proper day.
small piece of brie and celery stick
omelette with mushrooms, peppers, bacon and little bit of cheese
roast chicken, cauliflower cheese (flourless) corgettes, broccoli and leeks.
greek full fat yog with berries.

Feel rather pleased with myself I do!

Molly - sorry, I can't remember - are you doing Bootcamp or Bootcamp Light? If you're doing Bootcamp, no fruit! But your menu sounds good. Just keep an eye on the amount of dairy you're eating as it can impede weight loss for some people

That sounds perfect, kotinka.

Are you drinking plenty of water as well?

ruby - I'm sorry, I missed your questions, and I'm guessing it's too late now!

I would have made the chunks smaller, personally - but it doesn't really matter, as long as they're cooked - but larger chunks will take longer to cook.

And no need to cut the rind off the cheese.

Well done Molly I think you were going to do bootcamp lite and if so I reckon that is a brilliant start!

I have been at my parents house last night and ate dinner there again tonight with DD as DH is away. My dad makes the bestest low carb meals for me bless him (and usually a low carb dessert too!). I have however eaten far too much of it and did have some coconut that I won at the fair yesterday!!!!

Oooooo.....guess im doing bootcamp light then. I couldn't remember smile but im not sure that I could go hardcore at the moment. Who knows, I might go onto bootcamp next week. Ive spent today and yesterday doing a tutor marked assignment for my Uni course and havnt felt the need to snack on lots of sweeties which is good.

Had the best dinner tonight.

Waitrose reductions chicken special which was Ginger, chilli Chicken Breasts for £1 instead of £4.

Then I made a cheese sauce with bacon, mushrooms, gorgonzola, cheddar and cream cheese...all melted....added cooked cauli and broccoli and baked in the oven.

Twas fab-u-lous!!smilesmile

Tonight I haven't slept. My alarm goes off in less then an hour for me to start the day. I have discovered rather a lot of determination to do this right. Do this properly. I need to lose this weight. I need to stop this blood sugar swing craziness. It is not enough to have got to a point where i now eat 3 meals a day rather then avoiding food. It is not enough to know that I need to sleep properly and drink enough water. I need to do this right.

I am about to go find some breakfast. A couple of eggs scrambled with some buttered leeks and a cup of coffee.

I am going to take some baby bel to training with me.

As I shall probably sleep through lunch (let's be realistic), i shall have a very early lunch of a salad - which I shall make before i leave to go. Probably lettuce, celery, mayo, cheese and some ham

I am not sure what tea is going to be but I am thinking that it needs to be something mince based, possibly spag bol kind thing without the pasta. Easy to do for the carb eaters, easy to add to extra veg for me.

Am all stretched out and feeling ridiculously awake atm. I know this isn't going to last but I only have to get to 10am and then the majority of my compulsory part of the day has been done. The rest of it can be done to fit me thank goodness

This re-focus sees me starting from 73kg again. Damm it I am going to lose that last 10kg. I need to. Just one more way to keep the over all pain levels down!!! Perhaps this will even see me finally find some sort of order and structure to the things that most people take for granted; food and sleep. Something I can't even remember when I last managed properly. Probably before my first bout of chronic fatigue nearly 20years ago. God I have I really right royally fucked my body up for so long?

Today is a new day, a new start and a new way!!!
