Hello Daily Diarists! I hope you’ve had a good week so far.
Welcome to anyone posting for the first time, just look at what the others do and follow suit.
So, what have you planned to eat and drink on Friday 16th June?
Tell us what your calorie intake should be and the total calories that each meal contains, what exercise you have planned and if you have a tip to share please do share it.
For all the regulars, I’m looking forward to seeing what you all have in store for tomorrow – thank you for sharing your brilliant ideas!
For those of you who might be interested, I have been logging on to this forum for 185 days now. I have gone down very, very slowly down from 10 st. 4lb to 9 st. 7.5lb, that’s just 11lb in 26 weeks. I am happy with that, but I would like to get to 9st 2lb eventually. I am 64 and 5’ 3”, not a big frame, so that should give it some perspective. I was doing the 5:2 for the first three months, but I am now calorie counting and aiming to consume around 1400 cals per day.
So tomorrow for breakfast I shall have an egg sandwich - boiled egg in a slice of bread, lots of pepper, 171 cals.
Lunch will be the last of yesterday’s Hairy Dieters’ meatloaf with some salad, 476 cals. Dinner will be cottage cheese salad, 256 cals.
Total so far 764 cals, (and sorry, not very exciting!)
Then it’s the weekend! And we are invited out for celebratory drinks next door at 5pm tomorrow (one glass sauvignon blanc 96 cals) and later I am meeting girl friends for our book club – we do read a book, but we also eat and drink! So that’s the tricky bit. I shall make a cake and take it, as I always do, then I know how many calories I’ve consumed, but there are always other nibbles, so it’s a matter of reining myself in!
My tip for the day? You can either make excuses, or you can make something happen. It’s never too late in the day to make a start!
