Hollie's food diary!!!

Right I feel like I need to keep a diary as I'm going way off track at the moment! I lost 15lbs in 6 weeks then had 2 nights out (first in over a year as had a baby 9 weeks ago) and ever since then I have fallen off the wagon.

At the moment I don't have a kitchen and my house is a tip as we are moving our kitchen and doing some other work on house, hopefully it will be completed in the next 2 weeks. The only problem is I can't cook in the house so I'm keeping this diary to try and stop me from buying the whole of domino pizza like we did last night :-(

I know its hard when you have no kitchen but could you have salads, couscous, mugshots, rice, baked potatoes, etc...... The dont require that much cooking - just hot water or microwave.

Anyway just wanted to wish you luck, you are doing so well....
Thanks guys! Well I popped over to my mums today and made some food to put in my freezer so at least I can just pop it in the micro wave as can't use cooker!

So I will officially start my diary tomorrow and hopefully get back on track :)

Right my kitchen is complete and I have to get back on track now as there is no excuse!!

I go back to work in 8 weeks and I would love to lose another stone so that means I only have 1 1/2 stone to go after that which I'm hoping to do in time for the Xmas party!!

I really have to pick a green/red/EE day and actually stick to it for the whole day, cos at the moment I find I'm starting out with good intentions but then end up switching to EE later on in the day as things change but this means I don't have my 1/3 superfree with breakfast and lunch..

Also I have been going to spin class every Wednesday and doing kettlebells 3 times a week but I started couch 2 5k with my brother 2 weeks ago and only did day 1.. I really need to complete this as I have to be fit when I go back to work! Wish me luck as I really have to be disciplined from now on :)

A few other things I wish to do which are not all diet related but I thought it would be good to write it down to remind me:

1 - exercise in the morning so it's out of the way!

2 - weigh my portions of potatoes/rice/pasta as I am eating far too much and don't know when to stop!

3 - start using my exfoliator and all the expensive cleansers etc that I wanted sooo much but have not bothered to use, same goes with electric tooth brush..

4 - start taking my vitamins everyday

5 - stop allowing the ironing to build up, it would be so much quicker if I ironed when it came outta the dryer rather than leave it a week.

6 - spend half hour each day preferably in the morning to hover and clean etc

These are all I can thinkof right now but I feel if I can get into a routine before going back to work it will make managing 2 young children and working shifts much easier..

Welcome back!!
Looks like a good plan.
Sometimes writing it down makes us stick to it more.

Maybe plan your day the night before. I do that as I have to get lunch ready for work. That way I always know if I need to add 1/3 superfree to my meals.

You should be able to loose a stone before you go back to work, you certainly seem motivated to do it. And the exercise should certainly help.

How are you finding the kettlebells??
