    Back to Calorie Counting

    After doing SW for a while and not doing too well have returned to CC and joined Rosemary Conley yesterday.
    Put a stone back on over the last few months and decided it must stop now before it gets any more and so found a local club and went along yesterday.
    I lost over 5 stone a few years ago Cal counting so decided to go back to my roots - I know I was eating too much on SW not matter what they say about eating as much free food as you like, it did just not work for me so here I am hoping to lose it the way I know better.

    Food for Tuesday 18th MARCH 2014 - by the way I am Veggie.

    Breakfast - 35gms porridge - fruit and seeds - blended in Vitamix to make a smoothie type breakfast - 266 cals

    Lunch - Quinoa and Chickpeas with dressing and salad - 366cals

    Snack - 2 Lidl Ryvita type biscuits with Philly cheese - 100 cals
    Apple - 100 cals

    Dinner - Lentil "mince" with veg 155
    150gms potatoes 131
    Asparagus 16 - Brussells 42 - Cauliflower 25 - 83 Total 369

    Cadburys Highlight 40

    Daily Total 1201

    R. Conley class - 45 mins exercise
    Aqua Class 45 mins
    10,084 Steps.

    Thank you - I have been on the SW boards on this site for quite a time now but took a break. Then came back recently but as I said SW was not working so here I am.
    In the past I found writing thing down really helped so decided to start the CC diary then I have to be good (ish).

    Welcome back and good luck! I didn't get on well with slimming world either, I understood the concept but you cannot eat 'as much as you like' lol. I find calorie counting is stricter and what I need

    FRIDAY 21ST MARCH - high carb day.

    FIRST BREAKFAST - 5am !!! - 35gms (dry weight) porridge oats made with water 114cals

    BREAKFAST - Bran Flakes with fruit and yogurt 230 cals

    During the day - 2 rounds of sandwiches 532 cals big box of veg sticks (carrots - celery - cucumber and cherry tomatoes) and box of strawberries and orange segments - guess at 300 cals. -- 832 cals

    Aldi Benefits Bar 70 cals - Cadbury's Highlighs drink 40 cals. - 110 cals

    Sampled some seeds and soup but only a little - 100 cals

    Total 1386 cals

    Steps 15.044

    Measured Breakfast cereals at home and had to do others at MIL's and she does not have any scales so guessed the fruit and veg cals.
    Kept away from samples at Ideal Home Exhibition except to try some soup and seeds.
    1200 for day and 156 left from last 2 days so not over by many - quite pleased I kept away from the samples. Was picked from the audience (with quite a few others) and turned down the chance to give opinion on 5 different wines and then drink them. Any other time would have been at the front of the queue

    Quite proud of myself this morning - went into Thornton's to get my MIL's chocolate and said no to the freebies they were handing out - that is a first.
