Day 20 (Monday)

Today I came to the realisation that I've really not been doing very well at this whole dieting thing, so I went back and counted to see exactly how bad I've been, these are the results:

Days where I was under my calorie limit:  5
Days where I was over my calorie limit: 14!!!
And this is when I am TRYING to be good. I suck at this :/

The weekends don't help, but they wouldn't be such a big deal if I was actually sticking to it during the week, but I did really badly last week and the week before that. I only have 3 weeks left so I need to get serious otherwise I'm going to end up the same weight as I am now, looking like a sack of potatoes wrapped in latex.. sexy.. not!

I am going to try really hard to stick to my calorie limit all this week and hopefully I can shift a kg by next week. The weekend is going to be a big one, so I need to make sure I behave until then so that it doesn't mess me up too much.

Breakfast 10am: Ice-break loaded iced coffee - 335cal, 47.5g carb.

Snack 11:30am: Sultanas and white choc bits - 146cal, 23.8g carb.

Lunch 1:30pm: Dashi beef and mixed vegetables - approx 577cal, 15g carb (estimated based on similar things in CK).

Snack 4pm: Kiwi fruit - 39cal, 6.8g carb.

Dinner 8:30pm: Jambalaya with cauliflower "rice" - 278cal, 10.8g carb.

Calorie total: 1374
Carb total: 103.9g
Exercise: 15mins walking - -63cal

Final calories: 1311
Calorie balance: 49 (Woo in the black!)
Carb balance: -3.9 (almost in the black)


  1. I have not been particularly good either and have lost exactly zero kilos. The culprit - alcohol! Not only does it contain empty kilojoules, my restraint goes out of the window after the first drop. If I could stop drinking I'd likely drop a bit. Still trying to find the right balance!

  2. Yeah that's one of my main problems too, it's a hard one though because realistically I'm not going to be giving up drinking any time soon so I have to work out a way around it.. or just try to drink less :/
