THE diet. Week 2.

This is week two of my diet (Monday 3rd October)! Hopefully this week is even better than last! :D

Okay, so no changes yet but that's expected after only 7 days.

Today was really good, I am learning how to eat well but with little points and calories. And with the 4lb loss last week, I AM NOT putting that back on. I want to lose at least 2lbs this week :D So motivation is high! I even went for dinner with boyfriend and didn't go over my points/calories :D Yaaaay!

Pretty much an average day. Im really learning how to control my point intake and I seem to be ending the day with some points left over! Bonus! But I have needed them, it's that time of the month and all I want to do is binge on a house-sized chocolate bar!!! So yes, I have had some sneaky chocolate :)

Today was very good. I am finding this 'diet life' very easy now :) and I'm actually enjoying it! I am feeling a lot better in myself. I have more energy already and I haven't even being exercising yet! Amazing! I also think I look less bloated than I used to look, not sure if this is true or me 'wanting to see it' haha! :D

So today went a little bad!! I was doing well until I got home and found that my mum had made my favourite cake; coffee and walnut! So I had a very thin slice (tut tut!). Then I just had a massive manic night. I had to dye my sisters hair, my friend came round for a few hours, I had to insure and tax my car online and then get my dad to drive it to my mum's house and then drive him back to his and then drive back home. (YES I HAVE MY CAR BACK!!!!) After all that I forgot I hadn't had dinner, so instead of cooking at 10pm at night, I had another slice of cake. Soooo bad!!

Today wasn't much better than yesterday. I did well throughout the day, although I did have a bounty chocolate bar (but its that time of the month so I HAD to have it), but then along came the evening... Now that I have my car and have been paid from work I decided to take my boyfriend out for dinner. We are both on a diet (he only diets because he's a MMA fighter) so I decided to go to a Thai restaurant as Thai food is the healthiest out of Chinese and Indian and much MUCH nicer! (If you haven't tried it, please do! And don't think its all spicy like a lot of people do, only a few dishes are spicy) And I never like going to an English restaurant because I don't like paying for food I can make at home (penny saver haha).

After last night's feast I have tried to be extra careful with my intake today. I even went to McDonald's with my dad and only had a Chicken salad WITHOUT the dressing (daaayyyymmmm!!).

I went shopping to Bristol today so the healthiest thing I could find for lunch was a jacket potato with beans and cheese (okay, I could have gone without the cheese, but I deserved it after a hard day shopping!). I then had a pork roast for dinner :). And then the dreaded weigh-in.......

    No exercise on Sunday!! You dragged me round Primark for 2 and a half hours carrying a massive shopping back. If that isn't exercise I don't know what it is!! So you can update your exercise to atleast 3 hours of walking missus!!

  2. Hahaaaaa!!! Okay, I guess that is exercise. But it's not like the gym!! Just walking to your car is exercise! How far do we go with the 'exercise' thing? xx

    I would say that constant walking and weightlifting 2 shopping bags round is quite good exercise :). You should be proud! x
