Hello Daily Diarists!
I hope you’ve had a good week so far. Well it's the glorious 12th - anyone having grouse tonight??
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 Saturday 12th August?
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! I am building up a new repertoire of fab recipes from this forum!
For those of you who might be interested, I have been logging on to this forum for 245 days now (I know trhat because I started MyFitnessPal the same day). I went down very, very slowly down from 10 st. 4lb to 9 st. 7lb, that’s where I am now, although I have been a bit lower. I am happy with that, but I would like to get to 9st 2lb eventually. I am 65 now 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.
Today didn't go to plan at all, because OH and I have been suffering from some kind of virus, I think - headache, nausea, exhaustion - and we haven't eaten at all today until this evening. Feeling a lot better now, thank goodness!
So tomorrow for breakfast I shall have an egg sandwich - boiled egg in a slice of bread, lots of pepper.
Lunch will be a Hairy Dieters’ ham salad wrap and a yogurt and dinner will be sirloin steak and salad.
I'm afraid I'm not doing much exercise since I lost my best canine walking pal, but I am getting out in the garden whenever I can.
I haven't totted it up yet, but after those 245 days on MyFitnessPal, I'm fairly confident ot will leave me enough for a glass of wine and some fruit for snacks.
My tip for the day? You can either make excuses, or you can make something happen. The time for action is now! It's never too late in the day to start something.
