Work, Work, Work and… More Work

Another late night tonight. I just spent the last four plus hours working on my french powerpoint and speech which I still haven’t finished so I’ll have to get up early tomorrow morning. And yet again, no time for the treadmill today. I’ve barely been doing any exercise this week and I have to weigh myself tomorrow so I’m not overly optimistic about that number on the scales. Still, so long as it doesn’t actually go up I can’t complain - I lost 4lbs last week so that would be great to maintain.

Today’s calorie intake:

Breakfast: 30g Special K with 125ml skimmed milk - 158 calories.
Lunch: Weight Watchers tomato soup - 76 calories.
Snack: 60g carrot sticks - 24 calories.
Dinner: half a Weight Watchers sweet mango chicken - 200 calories.

Total calories consumed: 458 calories.

Calories burned: 30ds level 2 - 117 calories.

Net: 341 calories.

Recently I’ve become a bit obsessed with checking the calorie content of everything, especially other people’s food (to make sure that I’m not missing out I guess!). Anyway, at lunch I stole a surreptitious glance at my friend’s store brought “healthy” pasta/salad concoction. It contained 685 calories - that’s more than I eat in an average day! Wow, no wonder I got fat if I was shoveling garbage like that into my body. I promised myself then and there that I will never go back to eating unhealthy again.

Day 4 of 30ds level 2: Jillian is continuing to kick my sorry ass but I won’t give up, I’ll beat her yet (even if my legs currently have other ideas)!
