    So, I'm starting up a new thread so that I can track everything. My weakness is a sweet tooth and a love of wine.

    From today I will not be having cheese and will be limiting Atkins bars. I am also wanting to limit salamis, sausages, and fried veg.

    I want to aim for fish, seafood, chicken. I aim to drink my 2ltrs plus of clear fluids, mainly water!

    Wish me luck!!! :wave_cry:

I ramble complete n utter rubbish on mine but i do find it helps sometimes just getting the crazy thoughts out your head and down in writing if that makes sense. Spk soon n take care hun x

    Aldershot it is.

    I trained in Aldershot, Browndown Barracks, but later when I joined the RAOC, they were based in Frimley Green.

    18.5 carried forward.

    Added some bacon, nuts and then had a bit of cheese and chorizo.

    Didn't eat my chicken tonight as felt bloated, I look about 6 months pregnant tonight!

    No exercise this morning as I couldn't be bothered and I'm supposed to be going to college this morning for half a day and didn't want to get there looking like a sweaty beetroot. I'll see how I feel later.

    B - 1 Atkins bar 2.1, bacon 0.0, mayo 0.4, mushrooms 4.0
    L - Sardines 0.0, mixed pepper 4.0
    D - Lamb chops 0.0, cabbage 4.0, spinach 4.0

    18.5 <u>of which 16.0g are veggies</u>

    I never counted carbs for mushrooms Penny, I had it in my mind they were carb free? I'll have to go and check that. About the bloating, no idea then love.

    Mushrooms are 1.2 per half cup according to the atkins site Acceptable Foods List

    I don't tend to count mayo Penny, it's under the fats n oils bit on the acceptable foods list. So long as it doesn't contain sugar or something like that.. I use the hellmans full fat stuff n don't count it.

    I'm just back from the gym n look like a hot sweaty red beetroot, enough for us both hun! Now gotta sort myself out ready for work! Such an attractive look. Not.

    Hope college went ok, catch ya later missy.. x
