Hey hun

Motivation is the hardest thing isn't it. I've had a rubbish weekend foodwise. I really want to make it work this time so need to try harder.

Keep posting your food diary, I always find it good to look back at and even give me a bit of motivation.

You'll get there, stick with it :)

Thanks, yes I want to get there this time too and stay there
I am definitely going to stick with my diary this time even on the bad food days ( hopefully they will become much less frequent!)
I think its a case of getting into a routine of sorts and building better habits

Monday again!
By the way I forgot to mention I think that I weighed myself Sunday morning and was down almost 2lb?!仄儭 think it was more a fluctuation as I cant say Id overly tried!

Easy day at work today , few local deliveries and collections and then down to Lymington & Poole , finished work at 17.45

Food wise .
Well it started off good! I took some snacks and got a meal deal from co-op AND I didnt come out of there with lots of chocolate/cakes or pastries! Id say that was a win.. for that anyway

Have logged everything in MyFitnessPal ( as best I could except dinner

When I got home from work hubby had made a spagbol ( one of the few other things he may cook to eat) had some leftover and said did I want some?
Well I was feeling hungry - and there was enough for me & my daughter- so we just needed to cook some spaghetti- well linguine my daughter wanted..
Also my daughter had bought me on her way back from work a white creme egg ( omg they are lush )
She also had bought garlic bread baguettes, so we had half of one of those with the spagbol too along with grated cheese

And then she said oh I bought a couple of chocolate eclairs from the polish shop you can have one if you like!?

I mean its nice theyve thought of me as such but it really doesnt help my cause!

Anyhow, after dinner I took Lucian the neighbours husky for a 2 odd mile walk

Well over calories fro the day at a guess probably had double my calories almost

Tomorrow is another day and Ive made a collage pic of what Ive eaten as of now today

Also I started another MapMyFitness challenge
You vs the Year 2023
Basically walk or run 2023 km over the year
Did last year one but didnt quite make it by about 80km ( I sort of lost motivation end of November so plan on completing this years

Added pics of the challenge and also a pic of Lucian ( hes such an adorable boy 弘)

Yay well done on losing 2lbs. It doesn't matter how you lost it, take it as a win :)

Don't you just hate kids who bring home goodies all the time. My son used to do thast when he lived at home. He'd often pick me up a bottle of wine on a Friday after work, yes it was lovely but come on kiddo I'm on a diet!!

I like the idea of the 2023 walk. I try to walk most days, even if just a mile but depending on weather and work I don't always manage it.

Hope you're having a good day.

Thanks will see my my weight is next Sunday !My daughter quite often brings goodies back for me - think Im going to have to have words if Im going to lose this weight again
Sometimes I get home from work and within 15 mins Im off out on a walk - last year the weather didnt overly bother me but now if its windy and or raining I just think nah!
I do have a treadmill/ walking pad - should dust it off again for those days or do my kettlebells or another workout instead

Tuesday!

Its not gone well again
Definitely going to sort things out at the weekend!
Cant keep going on like this!

Work. Finished at 6pm
Been to Poole - delivered a pallet of flour to a bakery there was some tasty looking cakes they had made in there !
Spotted a tray of Florentines they looked SO good downside to delivering to a bakery- makes you think of food!
Went to Ferndown then a couple of places in Wimborne ( including another bakery but they were just doing bread by the looks of things..)
Then onto Bournemouth airport Totton, and then local stuff

Anyway just took snacks in my lunch bag to work, never a good thing me thinking Ill buy a meal deal on my travels!

On the way to Poole id eaten 2 mini bags of chocolate rice cakes, bag of plain French fries and a bag of cheese & onion crisps!

After my delivery to the bakery, theres a Greggs on the industrial estate so I stopped off and came out with a large latte, sausage roll, Belgian bun, cupcake and a tuna & red onion baguette!

After the airport I stopped and had my break in Christchurch near a local Nisa
Went in there and came out with a wispa gold duo, creme egg, another latte plus and iced coffee, and an onion bhaji! ( they sell those along with samosas behind the counter - Indians run the shop)

Back at the yard on finishing went in the drivers canteen as such and got a cappuccino from the vending machine and a kitkat chunky /biscoff one

Got home never went for a walk as its been windy and raining most of the day

Daughter gave me a salted caramel cookie!
And Ive just had tassimo coffees all evening and a jammy dodger out the biscuit barrel

And just sat and watched tv with hubby and browsed the net

So that was all my food for the day突!
Dont know how many calories????

One of the downsides to my job . Over the years and all the places Ive been I know most of the shops cafes etc where I can stop/park near in the truck

Not a good thing in a sense when your worst habit is binge eating!
Or mindless eating through moods, boredom etc.

Another reason why I should make sure Ive got all I need foodwise to take to work!

I have had hypnotherapy twice over the years which was weird and worked while I kept it up just didnt keep it up until the end of all the sessions

Wednesday tomorrow, hope its a better day

Oh dear, not such a great day for you then! Never mind, draw a big fat line under it and start again :)

Could you take lots of extra healthy snacks with you to work which will help you not buy the naughty goodies? I know it's really hard. Luckily I don't have too many temptations at work.

Hopefully today will be a much better day for you

My intention is going to be to take healthy and low cal snacks to work
My work is just me and my truck so my only temptation is me and my mojo

Well the past 3 days at work have been dreadful really! Only took a few snacks and just bought food/lunch out and about made a note of one of the days and the calories - shocking when you write it all down and work it out !喫


2 snack packs mini rice cakes (264)
Grenade bar (232)
Coffee mongers 4 shot latte (100?)
Mini green & blacks chocolate (80)
2 Tesco cream slices (pack of 2)(474)
All butter croissant (282)
Chicken Caesar wrap(444)
Lindt chocolate bar(240)
Large Emmi latte (126)
Jumbo battered sausage (356)
Mayonnaise sachet(70)
2 packets roast chicken crisps (256)
Mini flake (44)
Skimmed milk in coffees (120)

Total cals 3088 approx 喇

The other 2 days werent much better

Anyhow!
Had my Oddbox delivered this evening- lots of fruit and veg to use
Just need a couple of other bits of shopping this weekend and then i plan on doing some meal preps.

I have ordered myself another food warmer to take in the truck - my other one wasnt a 24v one and the wire used to get a bit hot夷t should be here tomorrow

So I plan on taking a cooked hot meal to work
It seems that most of the time I get home from work of an evening and cant be bothered to make anything to eat and usually snack on rubbish then as well or have something light..
At least I would have a choice if I prep something wether to have it lunchtime or evening.

Now I just need to think what Im going to make

Also I am off out drinking with hubby and his work colleagues Saturday night, so wont be on any plan then!

Some pics of what was in my oddbox
Which was
Potatoes
Beetroot
Kale
Spring greens
Chestnut Mushrooms
Swede
Courgettes
Tomatoes
Sweet potatoes
Kiwis
Permison/Sharon fruit
mangoes
Apples
Passion Fruit
I think thats it 佞

Well lets see if it all goes to plan

All the best plans and all that. Not long got up - 2pm!
Think I needed the sleep though!
My mind definitely did but my back feels all stiff and achy
Never mind!
Need to get showered and dressed as due to go out this evening and hubby wants to go out for something to eat other than Wetherspoons before we meet up with the others

Will update later

Went out at 5pm ish into Southampton , were meeting up with friends around 6.
Went and had a freshly made pizza a cheesy one , lovely it was ( said on the board it was approx 985 cals)
Then over to a Wetherspoons for our meet up , had Malibu(double) & Pepsi max - rather a lot of them! And we also had sambuca shots! Had a good chats and laughs this evening
And also one of my drinks we had turn up randomly Exploded!
We wondered what happened! But apparently it was a hot glass out the glass wash with cold drink/ice which very occasionally happens 仄儭
Thought someone had shot my glass!

Good night out though

Other food Ive had is a few biscuits, 2 mini flakes ( at home)
A few cheesy chips, a few pork scratching, and a small bag of salted peanuts ( to soak up the alcohol!)

My heated lunchbox has turned up as well while I was out

A few pics

Im awake! 10.25 am - no hangover 仄儭 surprisingly!
Going to go into town in a bit and get a few bits and start sorting out my plan for next week

One other thing one of hubbys work mates has invited round his and his wifes next Saturday for pizza/curry and to watch the Chris Eubanks fight we were thinking of trying to get out of it lol , but hes offered to pick us up and well just get a taxi back so Ill guess were going then!
Will try and plan that in somehow

There seems to always be something to scupper my plans!

Good afternoon.

Wow you're so good doing batch cooking. I can usually do enough in one meal to last the next lunch but that's about as good as I get, lol! I wish I could do more batch cooking though.

I love malibu and pepsi max, it's one of my go to drinks especially when I'm on a diet but its really low calorie.

Good luck this week :)

Hey hun,

Just thought I'd check in and see how you're doing? Hopefully you've been sticking with it this week and just not had time to post :)
Hey!
Unfortunately even though Id done all that meal prepping, I still needed up after 2 days falling back into bad habits 互
I really am my own worst enemy!
Anyway , if at first you dont succeed and all that!
I will persevere!
And try again from today!
Last night I went with hubby round to his work colleague and wifes house to have dinner and watch the Chris Eubanks jr fight , it was a nice evening and she made a homemade pizza which was lovely served with garlic ciabatta bread homemade coleslaw and cubed air fried potatoes with cheese and bacon
They also have a black cockapoo dog which wouldnt leave us alone but he was fun and so cuddly 弘
I did do a couple of walks yesterday with next door husky and we also looked after him for a few hours( hes SO adorable 弘 and it saved him being left on his own all day next door )
Did a 3 mile walk with him Friday evening too, which felt hard as I hadnt been walking or with him for nearly 2 weeks

Need to get back into a routine of sorts again, but it didnt help getting home from work at gone 8pm Monday to Thursday!

Ready to try again!

Just done tidying up and washing /ironing this afternoon, and also had a truck satnav I ordered turn up, so have also been setting that up and looking through the different settings etc ( got a garmin dezl lgv700 - hopefully it will be better than the TomTom one I had which kept freezing PITA that one was!)
Hubby went and got some bits to make us a brunch - bloody nice it was too! Bacon, eggs, sausages, fried bread, mushrooms etc
Apart from that just snacked on a few sweet foods and had lots of coffee 儭

Hope to be good food wise this week!
