Right, so as those of you who follow me already know, I’ve returned to restricting mode but with an increased limit of 700 calories (ew it seems so much when I type it but I know it’s the right thing to do) and since I’m having a new start, I thought it’d make sense to sit down for minutes and make a daily food plan. This is what I usually prefer having because it helps to keep the structure and I’m more likely to stick to it if it’s all mapped out and ready. Plus it means I am less likely to give up and binge because I’m eating more now and at regular intervals. On the bus journey home from sixth form, I made two different meal plans – one for the weekdays when I have school, and another for weekends. I thought some of you may be interested in reading what I will be eating and maybe you might want to copy it as it is extremely filling and pretty healthy, not to mention yummy!

I feel so motivated and ready to finally start losing weight and feeling good about myself because right now I am just big sack of lard; it’s pathetic. As for today’s intake:

B – toast w/ jam (118) and tea (15)

L – weight watchers beef lasagna (247) eurgh this tasted horrible, I won’t be buying this one again!

S – special k biscuits (98) and medium orange (55)

D – baked beans (60) w/ boiled egg white (17)

= 610 calories

Today has been such a great day! I don’t feel guilty about eating that much because I’m just full and satisfied so there is no chance I’ll be scoffing my face later on. Hopefully I can keep this up for the rest of the week, and the week after that haha. I usually slip up and binge by Wednesday but I don’t see that happening this time, because I’m just feeling so positive about everything.

I hope you’re all have a good day, too!


Today’s intake

Today's intake

I went food shopping today and found these yummy little beauties – full ready meals for less than 300 calories a bowl. Not only that, but it was on offer, 3 for only £3 so I bought a variety of different meals. One of them was a beef lasagne (as pictured), and the other two was a chicken curry and chilli con carne with rice. Yum.

My intake today was:

B – two belvita breakfast biscuits (116) a small banana (60) and tea (15)
L – chilli con carne with rice (284)
S – medium orange (55)
D – yet to be decided

I’m keeping my calorie intake below 700 calories from now on, which is an increase from the usual 500 but I’ve noticed it’s a lot more difficult to get through the school day on only 500 calories.

Finally back again!

November 9, 2012

A lot has happened in my personal life which has prevented me from updating as regularly as I used to, and it’s also made me eat so much more and gain back far too much weight. I’m not going to go into detail about it, but I got pregnant even though I was on contraception and ended up terminating it. On top of that, I’ve been under a lot of stress with school exams, university applications, and my relationship, but I’m sick of putting junk into my body and feeling like shit so I am ready to start losing weight again.

As I type this, I am lying in bed with my tummy rumbling because I have been awake for over 4 hours but still haven’t eaten breakfast yet. I will in a second, but first I am going to plan out my intake for today so I don’t go out of control. My calorie limit is 600 calories and here is what I plan to eat:

B – two belvita breakfast biscuits (116) and tea w/brown sugar (15)

L – spaghetti and sausages in a tomato sauce (162)

S – medium orange (62)

D – tomato soup (76) w/ melba toast (24)

= 455 calories
