I'm stunned I managed a whole week recording how much food I actually ate. MyFitnessPal is a great help but I had a setback eating a whole (!) bag of nuts on the very first day and had a lot of catching up to do to meet the 1200 calorie daily target. I didn't meet it - by Sunday I needed my weekly chocolate fix and was disappointed to see just how many calories are in such a small piece. We've still masses left over from Christmas.
A bit of salvation came when I collected my new council sponsored bike and I was chuffed to see how I could try and redeem my over indulgence by pedaling about, unfortunately I don't think the mince pie I scoffed as a reward for supper will have helped.
Average daily calories 1406 but I don't think my portion control is too good. I do a lot of home made meals and working out the details isn't always my thing so there's a fair bit of guesswork.
Bottom line - 3lb lost this week so I'm back down to my 'normal' overweight self. Not sure how I'll fare this week. I did Couch to 5k last year, but it wasn't really for me, my back or knees although the dog looked great. Wondering if to try out the Strength and Flex again - the dog is giving me a resigned look - she needs the exercise too.
