Yes awesome advice there! You are flipping dedicated at the gym!! Well done x
Thanks all!! Well today has been better! Been a bit snacky today and had our roast lamb tonight as we were out last night. Got Zumba at 7pm but thought I'd check in first!
B- fruit and fibre toast and spread
L- glorious skinny butternut squash soup, WW crackers and low low cheese spread, then 2 ww caramel cake bars (I know 2!!! But they were small and delicious!!)
S- Special K crisps
D- roast lamb, 2 new potatoes, spring greens, carrots, parsnips and a stuffing ball with gravy
Hubby has asked for a nice pudding and sending me off to Asda after Zumba!! He wants a chocolate tart and double cream mmmm I will resist and hopefully Zumba will help me!!
Been thinking about eating exercise cals? Someone said it was really important to eat them back but I never do. If I really want something else I allow myslef 200 extra on gym days but I burn about 500-600... I don't think I could eat them all!!! Would be 2000-2100 cals!!
Anyway best be off get kids ready before I go booty shaking!!! Hope all are having a nice day and my mum will be flattered at all the lovely comments! She is amazing she's lost 3st on Cambridge diet. I respect anyone who does a vlcd!!!
Add a slice of choc tart and WW cream!
your doing fantastic with gym and keeping track off food. as everyone else said one night isnt going to hurt that much and as u said u dont usually eat back cals burnt so you were prob on target.
i wish i had your dedication. you prob freaked out as like me you have more to loose a gain is like omg end of world but when u have ur first gain it does actually give u a kick and u reasess yourself well. jus try not to overthink, im a self confessed control freak and am a fine one to say dont overthink as i cross examine everthing! lol
thank you so much sarah u almost made me cry cos your soooo right, ive still got 4 st to go and i want it off before my birthday!! which i have just checked is 31 weeks away... so even if i lost a lb a week id lose 2st 4lb. which would still be a massive total of 4st4lb by then. i really want the whole 6 off which means most weeks id have to lose 2lb, and with the food and exercise i should really be getting that, but sometimes i guess the body just doesnt wanna play ball!! im going back to basics today 3 meals 500 cals. my hubby gone away so not got him swaying my vision!! ive also stopped with the ketones for now as this week ive taken them and i havent seen much difference, im also a bit constipated still but got myself some tabs that will hopeully work, sorry if tmi but im used to going once a day and i aint had a good proper one in over a week!!! guess that settles it, ive done all i can, its my bodys turn now to show me a good number next week!! (not weighing today as getting a bit obsessed and just ploughing on through to next week) wish me luck and i hope your doing well!! x

Sarah is so right, its easy to focus on the scales every single week and lose sight of the bigger picture- how far you have come and how you have totally changed your mindset to the extent it would be nigh on impossible to go back to where you were.
Also I reckon you are right to ditch the ketones, I was taking acai at one point to help and I don't reckon they did anything! Are you drinking tons of water? Also try green tea to get things moving and dried fruit- apricots/prunes etc!
Hope you enjoyed zumba!
thanks berryberry! its quite an embarrasing prob! i bought senokot and had them last night but still nothing...!! spoke to mama dearest who always knows what to do and recommeded ducolax but do it when im going to be home near the toilet!! hahahaha

evening all!! well today was meant to be WI but i havent weighed cos i havent had any movement from the senokot and im following my mums advice and will weigh next week. it was difficult not to jump on because that weigh in every week keeps me going!! but doubt it would have the same effect if i had a gain. i feel like im running away from a possible gain and not facing up to it. but even without the weigh in today ive still got my new week motivation head on and ready for a good one!!!
B- bran flakes with 1%milk
S-prune layer activia yogurt
L- scrambled 2 eggs with 100ml 1%milk on two slices dry w.meal toast and some smoked ham
S- one go ahead biscuit and an orange
D- WW chicken and mushroom pie with some garden peas, follwed by a Shapes DElight chocolate dessert with a Graze Bounty Hunter punnet stirred in (was divine and a good source of fibre which should help with the C problem? or does it do the opposite?!!?)
exercise i went to the gym for a boxing session had some free time after so jumped on the bike and burned 281 in total, i was late for my boxing session since didnt do as much as i wanted to but the PT said i was really good and i was working hard...!! nice to have a compliment! also said i feel in a bit of a rut even tho its early days i dont want my weight loss to slow. he said its easy as changing your gym session around, i normally do the same things in the same order but he said mix them up and get the body working! i also think i need to put in more fruit and veg into my diet... it is difficult though!
hope everyone is having a good week so far!! x
Sounds like a great day exercise was brill I need to up mine again . Those graze boxes are lovely but so addictive I was having two a week delivered at one point lol I have cancelled them now as trying to save a few pennies for holiday
I've cancelled mine because I don't snack very often and they were just piling up!! I've got a few left in the cupboard I'm gonna add to things like in my cereals or salads etc.

L- scrambled eggs with 2x toast and ham then an orange and a cheeky twix celebration sweet
D- 2x quorn sausages, low fat chips, fried egg and beans
Exercise 323 quick 45 mins at the gym did lots of strength rather than lots of cardio.
Bit of a kiddie tea cos I've got my friends kids over for tea, but I'm sure it will be delicious!!!
Powering on through on my 3-4 hour trip tonight so no naughty service stations!!!
Hope everyone has a good weekend ill try to check in when I can!! X
Good morning all!!
Hope u are all having a super weekend! Well I'm away up north with family got here safe and sound. On the way the kids needed a wee stopped off and kids got some biscuits I didn't want anything but I saw these pouches of mini matchmakers and 12 of them are only 86 cals!! A very good find I think!! I had 12 on the rest of the way up so need to ad those cals to Thursday!
Well yesterday was very eventful diet wise. Woke up and we all went and did a bit of shopping and mum suggested having some lunch. Stopped at a wetherspoons and everything was pretty much over 500 cals so I opted for 2 starters instead the soup and the pâté which was on the specials. The soup came and it was tomato and basil with 2 large pieces of white bloomer and butter pots. Had the delicious soup and had only one piece of bread no butter as I knew my pâté would have bread also. Mum and sister finished their nice meals (salmon fillet and sausage and mash! And glasses of red wine!) my pâté still had not arrived. Another half hour and another reminder to them went by and in the end I just cancelled it! So lunch was a measly 300+\- cals!
Got home and my sis suggested I go to the gym with her and she also goes to a cage fighter trainer person so I was very excited. Omg it was sooooooo hard!! Got me doing 6 circuits of 25 squats (so your bum touches the floor squats! Ouchy!) 25 push ups 15 lunges and then 40 kettle bell swings with an 8kg kettle bell!! 6bloody times! I nearly died!!! Struggled to drive home and then even walk in the house felt like my legs were dead and my feet stuck to the floor!! Aching all evening and I was kindly assured by my sister that it would be worse this morning! How could it be worse?! And now I know I'm aching all over and in need of a very hot bath!!! Not sure how many cals burned but must have been quite a lot as I didn't have my HRM with me would have been interesting to see how much it was. I better lose weight this week!!!
So currently laying in bed trying to get the energy to get up!
Hope everyone is having a super weekend! X
that made me laugh that you bum aches so much. i remember when i first went to gym in uni and sat on leg weights machine for like and hour jus pushing away. the next day i was walking like john wayne!! lol not a great look.
i desperately want to go to kickboxing as i love it but my confidence isnt there yet so when i loose some more weight ill find a class somewhere.
hope you have a lovely weekend.
omg sarah im still aching today!! evry bit of me especially legs and my back!!! struggling to do anything!!! but making an effort to do some stretches so i dont totally seize up as i do notice if i sit for a while its harder for me to move again!!

hello all, hope you have all had a lovely weekend, im officially home safe and sound after a 3hr drive back.the weekend has been manic ill start with yesterday, my mum had to go work so me and my sis took the kiddies bowing it was very difficult as i am still aching sooooooo bad all over from the cage fighter!!! it shows no sign of easing im trying to do stretches now and then to hopefully help!!we also went on the dodgems which was such a laugh and i sneakily treated myself to a bottle of beer (148 cals). after that we decided to meet my mum and take the kids to a wacky warehouse so we could have tea and drinks in peace. it was so nice as i dont see them as often as i want, probably once in every 1-2 months but we are all so close. no cals on the menu and my phone was dead so me and sis decided to share a combo starter and have it with a side salad. sounds good till we totally broke and ordered a cookie dough pizza topped with chocolate and brownies, ice cream and marshmallows mmmm was split between 5 so im keeping my fingers crossed and managed to stay away from any more alcohol. just googled cals for the combo 859!!62 for the salad and 368 for my portion of the pud!! so 1,289 for tea last night! other than that i had porridge with apple and cinnamon for brekkie at 330cals and a tin of ravioli 302cals and 2 crackers 70cals and a laughing cow triangle 19cals total=2158 hoping the low day the day before will help!!!
today i wasnt hungry for breakfast so set off about 11.30with no brekkie but bought a sausage and egg sandwich from tesco had that around 11.30 and a tomato snack pack that had feta cheese blocks and crostini and loads of cherry tomatoes so had that about 1 ish so thats 359 for sandwich and 169 for the tomato pack so only 528 had so far, planned to have gammon, new potatoes and green beans for tea. which shouldnt push me too much over 1000 and then ill go back on 1500 tomorrow and back to the gym if i can walk!!!
hope youve all had a super weekend xxx
