I have 100 days to shift some flab. I'm going on an adventure holiday in the south of France with 40 teenagers, and don't want to be worrying about my bod in wet suits etc. (although obviously I will, but I'd like to feel better than I do!)
Its a good amount of time and my aim is to lose 2 stone by then (2lbs a week)...obviously more would be fantastic! I have a total weight loss goal of 3 st 2 lbs, and i reckon if i stick to this, i can get to within a stone of that goal.
Im aiming to calorie count my way through, with 2 daily targets
- stay below 1600 cals * (exercise cals already included)
- do half an hours exercise a day
(* there may be the odd day when I save up cals for a night out etc.)
Ive bought myself a little treat...a tassimo coffee maker as I LOVE coffee so now i can have a little treat at less (and cost) than the lattes I buy from costa. It has meant, of course, that I have spent lots of calories today trying the different coffees! If I do well in my first week, my treat is I get to buy and try the costa caramel lattes. Yum!
Im not planning on fasting (although if I need a boost later, that may come in to play), but I am aiming to eat when hungry, so if that means skipping a meal, or eating at odd times, I'm not going to stress.
So here's today:
B - skipped
l - tassimo cappuccino, wholemeal toast with avocado and smoked salmon
s - tassimo latte
t - Thai green curry (ready to cook meal from waitrose - everything fresh, chopped, just bung it in to a wok)
Total 0% yoghurt with strawberry, banana
Cals: 1110 (low today, but still full from my "going on a diet, must eat all junk food in the house" episode yesterday)
Exercise: 2 mile jog on treadmill, p90x3 DVD total synergystics, approx 370 cals
