Dinner= ww meal-under 400 cal and 5% fat and mixed salad. fat free low calorie jelly.

drinks= coffee, diet coke, sugar free lemon squash.

exercise= 50 lengths swimming :)

feeling really full after dinner tonight-think i did too big a salad! think im gonna buy a smaller plate for me to have dinner on to help control my portion sizes.

the only thing thats letting me down is that i ate a few cherry toms and olives whilst preparing my salad-didnt realise they had calories too! will be more careful of that now!

really hope this is gonna work. my other half wanted to take me out for dinner tom night but i have told him no i cnt as need to control what i eat :( worried about getting through the weekend now! :wave_cry:
yeh i jus saw that they had calories too!hehe!

Ok day 3 was:

Breakfast= 1 weetabix, milk and sliced banana

100g pinapple

Exercise= 1 hr workout at gym including 20 mins on bike, 15 mins on x trainer, 15 mins on treadmill and some situps.

was very pleased with myself today as we went into starbucks and all i had was a black coffee and my celery and carrot pot with humus! And then went to the cinema and i saved my 12 grapes powersnack in the morn and had them while i was watching the film! And then to top it off afterwards my bf decided he wanted a burger from Macdonalds! So i went in with him, ordered nothing and watched him eat his big Mac meal! Very chuffed with myself! Bring on the weekend! :)
