    Pro Points - I will not turn 40 overweight

    I have been overweight for all of my adult life and having turned 39 on Saturday just past I have decided I am not turning 40 overweight. I have played with various diets over the years, Slimming World does work for me, if I am organised but I was finding that either I was going "off plan" when I was not organised and had to buy lunch at work and I felt I was spending a fortune on fruit.

    I honestly do not think I can even think of getting to what the medical profession deem a "healthy" weight for me, so I will just say I need to loose at least 5 stone, being honest I can not see that happening this year but I will see..

    I have just downloaded the Value Diary app and it has given me 35 PP daily (I know this is quite high) and I have set my week to reset on Saturday.

    I am starting tomorrow and have just worked out my food

    Breakfast - 7 PP
    Magic Porridge (40g porridge oats mixed with a tub of WW yoghurt)
    Banana

    Lunch - 11PP
    Tuna Sandwich (2 slices best of both, marg, tuna and extra light mayo) ((marg was a mistake but did not realise BF had finished the ham till I had put it on the bread)
    Granny Smith Apple
    Sliced Carrots
    Sliced Celery

    Dinner - 12 PP
    Lemon Chicken (Chicken Breast, Leeks, Garlic, Lemon, Oxo cube, tomato puree, honey)
    Boiled Potatoes
    Veg

    Supper - 5PP
    Not sure yet

    Exercise

    Gym in the evening
    Walk at lunchtime (if not raining)

    Thanks, my one "downfall" is I go out with my Boyfriend on a Saturday night to the pub. I am a lager drinker and do not like or enjoy spirits so a fair amount of my weekly PP will be going on that. I tend to have a couple of pints (6PP each) and then go onto bottles of Radler, a foster lager that is about 105 Kcal a bottle (and only 2% ABV). I can not find that on the app nor googling is finding a reliable result so I am going for 3PP per bottle.

    We did used to come back and have cheese on toast, prob 3 or 4 slices of bread each with chunks of cheese but about a year ago we stopped that and now have ryvita, soft cheese and boiled eggs. Not quite the same but alot better for us.

    Just back from a lunchtime walk. According to Endomondo GPS tracker I did 2.83 miles in 48.36 minutes at an average speed of 3.50mph. I am recording it as medium walking (5pp).

    First day done... I am surprised about how many PP I got for the gym but I do feel I was working at high effort on the CV machines. (Perhaps TMI but sweating away quite the thing). According to the computer in the gym I burnt off over 400 kcal which I find hard to believe.

    I am working from home tomorrow so do not need to worry about taking my lunch with me to work (but do have to worry about resisting the call of the kitchen during the afternoon)

    Todays waffle and plan

    I have just had an example of why Slimming World was not working for me. I went to make my egg sandwich at lunchtime and had thought I was going to use 2 hard boiled eggs. Realised one was enough, whilst on SW I would have had 2 "because they are free"

    Went swimming at lunchtime, I have not been in a swimming pool for about 14 years. I used to swim regularly as a teenager and was shocked/upset how hard going it was. I lost count as I was stopping all the time for a breather (and to sort my swimsuit which is a bit revealing on the top half shall we say ) but I think I did about 30 lengths. Have recorded it as moderate but it was borderline to hard going.

    Breakfast - 4 PP
    Bran Flakes and semi skimmed milk
    Banana

    Lunch - 12PP
    Boiled egg Sandwich (2 slices best of both, marg, 1 hard boiled egg)
    Protein bar
    Granny Smith Apple
    Sliced Carrots

    Dinner - 8 plus PP
    Baked Potato
    VLF Philly Cheese

    Supper -
    TBD


    Exercise - 3PP

    Swimming at lunchtime

    Another working from home day, I seem to have forgotten about breakfast (a bad habit I have got into when I am WFH) so had a bigger lunch that I planned to try and make up for it.

    We are going to the gym tonight and I was planning on going out for a walk at lunchtime but it is pouring with rain so I have been trying to do things at home. Have set myself a "stairs challenge" where I have to go up and down ours a certain amount of times in a row. I have done 2 lots of 10 so far and am hoping to do another one in a wee while. I have found this harder than I would have expected to do, defiantly short of breath at the end

    Today's food

    Lunch 8PP
    Home made carrot and tomato soup
    2 slices best of both and marg
    Apple

    Dinner 13PP
    Salmon fillet
    Boiled tatties
    Mixed veg
    WW yoghurt

    Supper 11PP
    Ryvita, VLF Philly Cheese, boiled egg

    Exercise ?11PP
    Gym in the evening, and this is what I did last time so guess it will be the same.

    Yesterday did not start well , mentioned this on another thread so sorry for repeating myself. A friends horse knocked me over into a muddy icey puddle in the morning and I have cut my knee. I think it was on the frozen ground as I have about a 5" long set of scrapes down my leg(like playground scrapes when you fell over on tarmac).

    The good news is that I did not turn to chocolate to comfort me for this, came home for a shower and had my planned lunch, then watched football in the afternoon (resisted a sandwich or sausage roll at half time) then dinner and the pub in the evening. Used most of my weeklies yesterday but I planned this as I knew the dinner was going to be high and I wanted a few drinks in the pub.

    Saturday Breakfast
    Apple

    Lunch
    Baked egg (frozen spinach, 2 eggs, LF cheese)

    Dinner
    Haggis, Neeps and Tatties

    Supper
    Ryvita, Scan Bran, LF cheese, boiled egg, chedder

    Drinks
    3 x pints fosters
    3 x bottles radler
    2 x bottles bud (ran out of radler, which is a pity as I like it cause it is lower alcohol)

    Woke up today quite sore (well woke up everytime I moved in the night cause it was sore) and decided I was not driving and going to have a relaxing day and not try and get to horse. TBH I know I am not going to be safe to drive, and have got a lift arranged for work tomorrow. However I am ok when I "get going" so went out for a walk this afternoon and tried a couple of the Leslie Sansone videos someone recommended on YouTube this evening.

    Quite like the LS videos, I did 2 of them. The first was a 1 mile one that lasted about 22 mins and the second was one that said you would do 500 steps in 5 mins. Not sure re the "1 mile" claim but I did do just over 500 steps according to my pedometer for the second one. They were really easy to follow and I did not need much space in the sitting room to do them. You do walk forward and backwards for one of the exercises, and step side to side for another but you could just walk on the spot for them. I did find that I was slightly out of breath at the end of them and I think that next time I am going to try the 2 mile one.

    Brunch 15PP
    Poached egg rolls

    Dinner 9PP
    Gardeners Chicken with baked butternut squash and green beans

    Supper 6PP
    5 x Scanbran
    VLF Soft Cheese

    Exercise 7PP
    45min walk
    2 Leslie Sansone Walking Videos
