So today:

Breakfast - Low fat greek yog with blueberries and honey
Lunch - 2 x carrots with cream cheese
Snack - half a melon
Dinner - Grilled tuna steak in nicoise salad (green beans, toms, cuc, olives, anchovies and 2 new pots + vinaigrette)

Hi everyone and welcome to ullena smile

Haven't been online last few days. Eating has been a bit erratic, mostly healthy but some junky type snacks oops.

Weigh in day for me, I'm 10st 9lbs so another 2 lbs off and 4 in total for the fortnight. Very pleased but will have to keep it up as still need those next 10lbs off!!

Still having problems with a pulled calf muscle so no running at the moment.

Breakfast : eggs and slice toast

Lunch : soup

Dinner : Chicken, veg, roasted sweet potato

Will try to do a little bit of exercise, maybe some sit ups or weight reps

Have a good day everyone x

Ullena Thu 23-May-13 18:41:20

Gah! Posted too soon!

Exercise - 90 minute cross country hike with the dogs.

Hi, just tagging along at the back! Currently I am size 14/16. I weigh in at 12st 4lbs, and ideally want to lose about 35lbs of that, as well as increase my general fitness and tone up, etc.

Started my good food/plenty of exercise approach to this eight days ago, and have cut out ice cream, crisps, biscuits, cake, chocolate and takeaways. I don't drink anyway, but I am really missing chocolate! So far I have lost nothing, bah.

Today's food:

Breakfast - Pineapple slices, glass of water

Lunch - Mixed leaf salad and luncheon meat sandwich (white bread, ran out of wholegrain blush ), cup of tea, peach

Dinner - Roast chicken and boiled potatoes with mixed vegetables and corn on the cob, 2 glasses of water, fruit salad

Supper - Toast with banana, tea

Hi everyone....I went missing in action for a few days there. Wasn't feeling too good and eating well was the last thing on my mind.

But on a plus note I was 10st 5lbs when I weighed myself yesterday. I've started reading Marisa Peer's You Can Be Thin again....I read it and followed her ideas after the birth of DS1 and was the slimmest I've been in years. Then started eating crap again and allowing lots of treats (except they're not really treats if you're eating them every bloody day are they grin).

I liked the book because it addressed at lot of the psychological reasons of my over eating. Hopefully it will work this time round too and with more effort on my part will keep working....

Didn't feel like eating much today..

Breakfast : 2 boiled eggs, cup of tea

Lunch: Banana, tea

Dinner: Breaded fish, couple of baby boils, some salad.

Won't be eating anything else tonight...

Hope everyone is well x

Faux sorry to hear you are ill, it's hard to resist stuff like biscuits etc when feeling like that. Maybe try to just have a few then a piece of fruit or something instead (I love custard creams with a cup of tea so I know the craving!!). You've been doing so well with your food intake and exercise that it would be a shame not to keep it up over the next few days till you're hopefully feeling better x

FauxFox Wed 22-May-13 14:26:22

I'm not well. Custard Creams are helping. Oh dear confused

tigerchair Wed 22-May-13 08:35:16

Really took the night off the diet big style last night!! Fed up because I injured my leg out running yesterday by twisting my ankle as I pushed off a kerb sade

So.....I had some dark choccy, pizza for dinner, wine, share of kids' sweets, oh dear!!!!

Have tried to rein it back in today foodwise, still hobbling about though so can't exercise today.


Handful blueberries, tbsp greek yoghurt
2 'healthy' sausages and an egg

2 boiled eggs, asparagus spears and tsp mayo

Veg soup and some roast chicken

Hi, your dinner last night sounded lovely Tiger.
This morning I went out with the dog for an hour.
When I came back at about 11.30 I had a big bowl of porridge made with mainly water (no sugar) some raisins and a banana in it.
I now have to go to ASDA to get the ingredients for a cottage pie (lots of veg in it) for tea.
If I get hungry in between I will have some cold meat and olives.
I will also have 1/2 a bottle of white wine.( in the evening not mid afternoongrin
I also have a very untidy house to clean so hopefully that will burn off a few

tigerchair Sat 18-May-13 10:25:55

Hi everyone

Didn't get a chance to post yesterday so will do yesterday's and today's food diaries.

Breakfast : Protein shake before gym session and one afterwards (as recommended by personal trainer as I am trying to increase my running distance and have to teach my body to burn fat for fuel therefore no carby breakfast today! it definitely made the gym session feel more difficult but apparently I'll get used to it!)

Lunch : 4 slices roast turkey, radishes
banana, blueberries

Dinner : (out at restaurant)
Starter : Chicken on skewers with spicy dip
Main : Sizzling King Prawns with stirfried green beans
Liqueur coffee for dessert, 4 glasses of red wine (no alcohol now till next weekend hopefully!!)
2 seeded crackers when I got home with a glass of water to soak up the booze


Today : Porridge and protein shake (heading out soon to do a six mile run, banana afterwards)

Lunch : something salady, blueberries

dinner : Going to have a night off the diet and have pizza with the dcs (veggie toppings and will pass on the garlic bread)

Lots of water

Hope you are all having a great weekend smile

Foosyerdoos Fri 17-May-13 21:22:42

I love eton mess Girlie I would not be able to resist that.
Hope everyone is having a nice evening.
Well despite falling off the crisps and chocolate abstinence wagon, I have still lost a couple of pounds and am now 12 stone 2 (yay).
So that gave me a boost.
So today -
Skipped brekkie (I don't really feel hungry 1st thing anyway )
Lunch - chicken, olives and roast peppers and some grapes.
Dinner- pulled BBQ brisket on a roll and some (just a few chips)
I am also having some wine but should be around my calorie limit and I don't feel any urge to snack.

Not much activity, I'm v.busy at work, but when things calm down I hope to fit in a lunch time walk.

JustinBiebermakesmevom Fri 17-May-13 08:14:59

Enjoy your weekend Faux and well done at maintain 11st in spite of your up-down week. Enjoy your weekend...

Just had my porridge and berries

Not sure what to have for lunch, we're off to the transport museum today and I'll be making sandwiches for the kids but I don't want the bread...Getting a bit fed up with my oatcakes.

Dinner will probably be another stir fry as DH came home last night from Tesco with three bags full of reduced stuff....Stir Fry for 10p and 3 boxes of strawberries at 50p each !

Have a good day everyone...

FauxFox Fri 17-May-13 06:46:33

Morning all - I am still 11st which makes me happy! Not a very 'good' week, too much wine, but 4lb in 2 weeks is OK with me. I tried on a load of clothes and the running is def paying off in my shape too so yay!

I have a rather exciting weekend of socialising starting today so i'll be back on Monday but I promise myself that i'll only drink/eat the things that I really want, no mindless grazing. There will also be running involved one or two times before Monday.

Have a great weekend y'all - hope the sun shines on you smile

tigerchair Thu 16-May-13 22:16:43

Have eaten really well all day but just poured a large glass of red wine

Foos, at least you are mindful about what you ate today...there were days when I must have been grabbing handfuls of biscuits and not even registering that I'd eaten them because I wasn't thinking. Tomorrow's another day, don't be disheartened smile

Seeya all tomorrow x

girliefriend Thu 16-May-13 22:16:11

I have not had the best of days either.

breakfast toast and marmite

lunch was pitta, humous and avacardo, a bag of noughts and crosses crisps, a yogurt.

dinner pesto pasta with tuna and mushrooms.

Was doing fairly well up until pudding which involved a rather large helping of eton mess (in my defence it was so delicious and def 1 of my 5 a day in strawberries wink )

exercise wise not much although did walk the school run again and will do a bit of jumping before bed grin
