Thanks bargoo, and everyone else, seeing what you have acheived makes me feel like I am doing the right thing
So an update, for me and anyone who is interested. (I'm not sure if this is in the right place, but I'm also not sure how to move it :/)
I spent the weekend at the Lakes (Ullswater) with my sister. I wanted to give my metabolism a kick start so I only took fruit, bread, tuna salad, tinned fruit and sweetcorn. And lots of water. On the first day we walked for 6 hours. Firstly road walking to get to a gorgeous waterfall, walked to the top (many many stairs!) and then walked up and along a fell (Gowbarrow) to get back...a long walk and in my sleeping bag and asleep by 6pm (!)
Another day, another fell (Winder). Sunday was a shorter walk (about 3 hours in total) but a very steep one. I have never been more happy to see a random stone as I was to see the random white stone that marked the summit (tiny at 1550ft but quite large incline in my opinion). I had to stop and rest at times, my feet hurt, my legs ached from the previous day, but I did it! And my reward on the way home? A skinny hot choc from Cafe Nero.
I didnt eat much over the weekend, just to fuel. Drank pleanty, but the amount of calories I took with me in total was about 3000 and I had some food left.
So yesterday. Was in a bad place, didnt eat much:
2 x wheatabix with skimmed milk and a little honey
Salad sandwich from the Uni shop
Toast and a low fat yoghurt...
Not enough fruit and not enough calories but I didnt go to the gym because I needed a break from the weekend.
Two slices of toast with a tiny bit of marge
Couscous and peas
Small chicken sandwich
Will be bean,lentil and veggie soup with maybe a fruit salad.
I'll be going to the gym and aim to burn 700 cals and do some weights and toning things...
Monday will be my day of dread...I mean weighing (
) and I will try to post as often as I can, either for myself or anyone who wants to know. If anyone has similar aspirations as me in terms of weightloss and similar starting/ending weights, let me know and we could maybe make a little support group as well...
Over and out for now x x x x
