So apparently my protein calculations are very wrong... I don't even know where I got 33g from! 42g is the MINIMUM of what I should be getting on a daily basis.... Im struggling hitting 33g! As a pescetarian it's hard eating large quantities of protein. I am eating fish everyday but that gets old pretty fast. Oh well.

Apparently I should also be watching how much Potassium I am eating..? I don't even know what Potassium does exactly! I tried looking it up on the internet and found a wide range of uses... It's exhausting keeping up with this stuff and I'm not sure to what degree I'm meant to be watching it. I should probably just go back to taking a daily mutilvitamin.

I upped the exercise though so Im having a good day!

I got a sleep in till 5:30am this morning! Haha and strangely enough I struggled more than ever to get out of bed... I can't believe it's only Tuesday...

Ok... So I had spirulina for the first time today... It's high in Iron, Protein, Anti-Oxidants, various other good things, low calorie... BUT. It smells like bad fish food... It's dark green... Tastes... Like Pond Scum... BLEGGHHH.... Don't know if I could do this daily... Maybe if I mixed it into a fish flavoured dish.

Man Valentines Day sucks... No matter how much I try and tell myself it's just a day and I try and make it fun for people or help them out with their romantic Valentines Days plans... It doesn't make you feel any better when you're single. I made some personalised fortune cookies for my co-worker to give to his wife! It's so sweet! Makes me jealous Ive never had anything even close to that! At least I don't have to worry about receiving chocolates or personalised fortune cookies to wreak my diet... :cry: :cry:

Smoked salmon and tuna salads are the mainstay of my lunch time diet too. Just as well I like both a lot..

I LOVE smoked salmon! But I think I need a little more variety in the way Im eating tuna. But fish is such an excellent (and filling) meal on any diet! Thank you!

Ok... So... Yesterday was a little bad... Not terrible... But not good! I ended up snacking on Doritos with my mum and going out for Lebanese food with her and my aunties and uncles. It started out so well... :? I'm getting back on track today! I'm just about to head out for the gym and thought I should post up an update before I forget!

I discovered these packs of instant low cal, high protein Pad Thai a few days ago and bought one to test out. I thought they would make a good snack if I felt like having something unhealthy without ruining my diet! They taste amazing! I will have to buy some again! But next time I'll mix in some veggies to make my meal a bit bigger. While it was filling, there wasn't really much of it in the container!

Cheat Days: To be honest, I believe including cheat days or cheat meals in my diet tend to make getting back on track harder! Having a day I tell myself I didn't make any progress leaves me feeling so unmotivated and disheartened! If I NEED a cheat day (for example yesterday when we went out for dinner for a family thing) then I can use it. But I don't think scheduled "cheat days" or "cheat meals" really work for me.

I have heard different reasoning behind the cheat days/meals. Some sources say it is there to help you feel as though you aren't depriving yourself. Others say it is there to stop your metabolism adapting to your restricted caloric intake. If anyone out there has an opinion or has any information to shed some light on cheat days/meals I'd love to hear it!

Anyway, onto today!

Mmm... My boobs are definitely shrinking... Haha it's so depressing! D: Losing all that water weight has left all my bras (that only just fit) hardly fitting at all! I have two bras I feel comfortable in!

Since losing a few kgs previously, I have only bought one new bra... This time I plan on buying new ones when I hit my goal! Three of the bras I own were ones that used to fit me when I was 65-70kgs, so I think it's definitely time to chuck those out..
