    Well, I want to say goodbye to my old diary, it's had it's highs but lows to match, and now I want to start afresh :)

    Especially since I'm taking part in the brilliantly thought of 4-week challenge, which starts today, I thought it would be completely appropriate to start a new diary :p

    So... I'm heading off to the gym today :character00116: I will weigh myself and come back and write down on here what it is... fingers crossed :fingerscrossed: in 4 weeks I'll be a much happier, lighter, healthier me :D

    Goodbye old me! :happy036:

    Today I'm back on track and feeling a gazillion trillion million billion infinity times better for it! :D

    Here's my diary for today...

    Breakfast


    • Pawridge made with water and sweetener - 110 cals

    Snack


    • Pear - 70 cals

    Lunch


    • 5 slices of cooked chicken breast - 45 cals

    • 11 sugar-free marshmallows - 55 cals

    Snack


    • Apple - 50 cals

    Tea


    • Portion of fish in parsley and butter sauce, green beans and broccoli - 300 cals

    • Walls light ice cream with ice cream sprinkles - 80 cals

    Supper


    • Homemade popcorn - 100 cals


    • 4 sugar-free jellies throughout the day


    • Also, today is my 'treat' day, so today's treat is iced gems - 100 cals

    Total Calories = 950

    Exercise = burnt 700 calories doing cardio at the gym, then did 45 minutes of weight lifting :character00116:, then another half an hours walking back to get the bus!

    Very happy with how today's gone... fingers crossed this will be the trend for the following week! :)

    P.s. Sainsburys have just started stocking sugar-free marshmallows, 69p a bag, only 5 calories per marshmallow!!!!!!!! :eek: happy days! :character00100:

    Your food sounds lovely; you're doing so well! :happy096:

    (Methinks I need to get me some of those marshmallows as well! My sweet tooth is going crazy, and it's my birthday tomorrow so we have a massive thornton's cake in the cupboard. Must... Resist... :17729:
    Haha)

    Hi Lozzy,

    Good luck with your new weight diary! Sounds like your first day has gone really well.

    Just a note of caution though – be careful not to overdo it at the start, because it makes it more likely you’ll slip up later on. 950 calories is very low indeed, especially the amount of time you spent in the gym. Don’t be too hard on yourself, because it’s extremely difficult to maintain that long term.

    Still really impressed though!

    Thankyou for the good luck wishes cherrypie! :)

    I know monday was too low calorie and far excessive on the exercise front but if you'd have known what I had eaten over the weekend you'd understand why! lol The rest of the week will be more normal :)

    How's your week going?? Hope you're having a great one! :D

    Well done Lozzy! Sounds like you had a really good day, and pretty healthy too! I try to go to the gym 5 times a week, but even then it's only for 20 - 30 mins. I think I'd die if I exercised as much as you do. Well done! Your stamina must be through the roof!
