Second weigh-in

This morning I weigh 105kg! A loss of 3kg!

I'm quite pleased with how this week progressed. I did exercise nearly every day. I had raw muesli for breakfast every day, and while I'm sure it's good to vary what you eat, at least I managed to have a good breakfast every day. There was only one day when I wasn't prepared for lunch and so had to opt for something that doesn't really fit in with my eating plan. And I had a few more treats than I'd planned, but I didn't go crazy when I had them.

I've heard it's ideal to lose 0.5-1kg/week (and I've also heard that healthy weightloss is actually 1kg per month!) so it will be interesting to see how I much weight I lose next week if I continue to eat and exercise the same way. I do have a lot to lose, but I don't want to overdo it.

I tripped down my stairs last night and have a massive lump and bruise on my knee! :( But I think I'll still be able to manage exercising as I have been. I hope so!

Day 7

Exercise - 40 minute walk

Breakfast - raw muesli

Lunch - beef and barley soup

Treat - yogurt, lemon and raspberry anything cake. I baked this cake for some friends, and had 1.5 pieces with them.

Dinner - I ended up having dinner really late, and was going to go out to get junk food, but the thought of having to write that here meant that I changed my mind and just made some scrambled eggs with smoked salmon.

Treat - chocolate! I had a few small pieces of chocolate after dinner...

Day 6

Breakfast - raw muesli

Lunch - I wasn't prepared, so had lunch at a cafe. They had no salads, so I chose a fancy ham and cheese sandwich. :-/

Treat - half a melting moment type biscuit, flat white

Dinner - beef stir fry with onions, broccoli, cauliflower, celery and zucchini, and a Korean-style stir fry sauce (bottled)

No exercise today

Day 4

Exercise - 40 minute walk

Breakfast - raw muesli

Lunch - Zucchini frittata, salad

- grapes, nuts and chickpeas

Treat - coffee and chocolate

I was feeling quite unwell after my coffee and chocolate! Maybe I've been over-doing it, or maybe I'm just coming down with something. :( So when I got home I didn't feel like dinner at all. I ended up eating some mango before I went to bed - not sure if that was a good idea or not. I feel like I'm coming down with a cold this morning...
