    Hi everyone :)

    Well, this is my second diary here... And hopefully a lasting on! Tried numerous approaches to weight loss and now I'm just focusing on the simple mantra of calories in vs calories out! Anything goes kinda thing! I love the gym, it's the food I fail epically on! So I'm going to make myself accountable WHATEVER I eat, as I have a nasty habit of not recording naughty days (if I did maybe I could work to reset the balance!)

    Got some big stuff coming up soon... Bridesmaid dress fitting in 4 weeks, bridesmaid in 7 weeks! I am currently around the 15stone Mark and wanting to try and get a good few lbs off before the new year and continue on a healthy lifestyle into 2013. will record all food and workouts here :)

    Hope everyone's having a great weekend xx

    Today is an exercise rest day for me ahead of tomorrows official measure in. I will weigh myself but I try to now ignore that number as I'm gonna be putting in a lot at the gym and that's when it all gets a bit messed up! So inches over lbs! Going for a family Sunday dinner now... Yum.

    Also have my fit test on Insanity tomorrow... Bit the bullet and I'm sure I will be in pain come Tuesday!!

    Today my calories have been a little too low - due to being extremely busy- I have 675 so far but am going to have a graze box (love those things!!) to make up a few! Today I got in 30 minutes of circuit training, tomorrow is a lifting day (chest n back) followed by 30 minutes cardio (more if I can manage it as I've been fighting off a nasty cough)

    Hope everyone's having a good healthy week so far xx

Still NEED to get Insanity workouts sorted! Keep putting it off as I know it will probably damn near kill me!!! 6 weeks n 2 days exactly until I gotta feel ok in my own skin, its gotta get started tomorrow morning before work at the latest. Will post results as I go - been looking forward to trying it for aggesss xx

    Totally knackered today, but movie was actually work it! its a 9 til 730 day today, followed by a 8 til 9 gym then a saturday shift at work also. I will be damned if i give in though. Breakfast was just a latte (well not just- 185 cals of it!) and lunch will be on the go but aslong its kept under 1200 with exercise im happy. I would usually eat more when exercising BUT got a fast approaching deadline haha.

    Happy friday everyone :)

    1142 calories for today, happy with that. Did 40 mins strength training at gym (chest n back) and still no insanity! Think im putting it off on purpose now lol! Did a full health inventory today, minus inches which is tomorrows job. Took readings of bodyfat, muscle mass, weight and viseral fat. Half of the results i was happy with as a startinh point- my visceral fat is normal n healthy, my muscle mass good. Bodyfat and weight not so great at all! BMI i totally ignore anyway as its aload of rubbish, in my opinion anyway.

    Hope everyone has had a happy healthy day xx

    After a busy day I've totted up my calories to 393 so far... So a few more needed! Just got home and sooo cold, gym is only open for another 90 minutes so do I be lazy now and have to do insanity later when I leave it that bit too long to go workout or do I get my ass back out in the cold? To be honest, I would much rather be deciding between Indian or pizza take out menus lol! But that's not an option... Tomorrow is a treat meal (within daily cal allowed) so will save it up! Xx

    insanity fit test done!!! Some things i was disappointed on, but some very hapoy with (low obliques and power knees) and others baffled i could 3 reps as i thought it impossible at this stage (push up jacks).Feel better now its done but i am dripping with sweat (tmi i know sorry!). So i guess now im commited to 60 days juh? :D

    will post my fit test results after my evening meal xx

    Woke up feeling very very hungry today! But as i sunday lunch with family in just over 2 will be factoring in a very light breakfast. No planned exercise until this evening xx

    todays calories are just over 1200 already with no exercise (except a game of basketball in park with my family, if that counts)

    feel OK about having a bit of a treat today aslong as i power through both my workouts tomorrow (insanity and weights) i will not let it put me on a downer (which leads to a binge)

    hope everyone has had a great weekend xx

    Heya DiamondDoll, sounds like you're doing really well so far. You're sticking to it pretty much every day so you'll definitely be seeing some good losses soon!

    Thanks Hun :)

    It's been a hectic few days- some bits naughty but mainly nothing too bad!! Went out for breakfast this morning and was very good and stuck to plain toast with a few beans ( hash browns looked lush!!). 2 and half weeks until fitting ahh please get half a stone off! It's TOTM at the moment so no weighing or measuring until it's over as I do get extremely bloated. Insanity hasn't took off way I hoped,..

    Hope everyone's having a great week so far xx

    A sneaky peek on scale says 4 lbs, but i actually feel better which is more important to me. Slacked off gym big time this week - no excuse for that lol. Back to the iron tomorrow...

    Hope everyones having a fabulous weekend!

    Another day done.... just one more day of healthy carbs then stripping them out for 5 days to give me a boost! Gonna miss my monday mcdonalds latte!

    Looked on scales this morning and it now says 5 lbs down (getting to the obsessive stage again!) Wont weigh in again now until tues morn (carb cut day) and then saturday morn before i have my weekend away... challenge to myself to not put weight on whilst away!

    So im now at 14.12 and would love to be at 13.7 (big big expectations i know!) But anywhere in 13 brackett before end of year would be awesome. Im very willing to put the work in. Have got to thinking about new year goals for myself and would love to get back to 10 stone by may time and then really up my weights programme to become leaner and healthier. Baby steps though...

    5lb is a great loss so far :)

    When are you hoping to get to 13.7 for? And I understand about the McDonalds latte! If I didn't have my mochas I'm not sure I'd make it through the week :p x

    Lol they nice coffees make mornings so much more pleasant! Im hoping to get there for 29th december (5 weeks) and it is a stone and 5lbs (or there abouts) but i am prepared to cut carbs lol!

    Espresso all the way now i guess!

    Don't think I've ever actually tried an espresso, that's got to go on my to-do list!

    1st 5lbs is definitely do-able in five weeks, that's about 4lb a week isn't it? x
