    As the title states I'm off to Tenerife in 6 weeks with my boyfriend and want to do that bikini justice! I haven't got tonnes to lose (currently 8st 6lb) but want to be around 7st 12lb by then (fingers crossed!).

    So today:-

    Breakfast: 50g porridge oats, 200ml skimmed milk, 150g strawberries (300 cals)

    Lunch: 130g pack of M&S Mexican Chicken, mixed leaves, plum tomatoes, cucumber, 100g chickpeas, drizzle balsamic vinegar (373cals)

    Dinner: 125g grilled chicken breast, 100g broccoli,125g brown rice (392 cals)

    Total Cals: 1065 - Oops, under-ate today as I was in a rush to get to my boyfriend's who lives 25 mile away. Could lead to a binge if I do this once too often as I've learnt from past experience!

    I also did a 45 min Cardio Kick-Boxing DVD after work - it was hard as I haven't done it for ages, totally lathered afterwards!

    Aw thanks TamaraAbi :) We can do this!

    I've edited yesterday's post to show how the day panned out - ate under calories (aiming for 1300 on exercise days) but that was because I was in such a rush. Should be more organised today....

    Here's how today went:

    Breakfast: 50g porridge oats, 200ml skimmed milk, 150g strawberries (300 cals)

    Snacks: 2x Dark Rye Ryvitas and 100g fat free cottage cheese (131 cals)
    Apple (80 cals)

    Lunch: Tin of tuna in springwater, mixed leaves, plum tomatoes, cucumber, 100g chickpeas, drizzle balsamic vinegar (358 cals)

    Dinner: 100g chicken breast, 100g broccoli, 125g brown rice (352 cals)

    Total Cals: 1221

    I also dragged myself kicking and screaming to the gym. So glad I went cos it ended up being a good session - 5k run on treadmill, push-ups, squats, weight machines, etc.

    Had a cheeky weigh in first thing this morning - 8st 4lb but that'll increase by at least a pound through the course of the day due to water loss overnight, etc. Still quite please tho!
