Thanks so much for the help Blitz
My typical food day is:
B/Fast: Two multigrain toast, two eggs, slice of cheese and apple
Lunch: Wrap, chicken piece, tomato.
Snacks: Fruit Cup, air popped corn, l'n'e fruit cake
Dinner: L'n'e frozen dinner, usually around 350-400cals
Desert snack (if calories are low): Skinny cow ice-cream (100 cals)
Still managed to stick to only water, green tea/white tea, this last week i've begun drinking some almond milk with a table spoon of lite choc flavouring, because my calories have been low and calcium intake was pretty low.
I'm on lite 'n' easy, so my diet is tracked for me, in a way, but also I'm using the myfitnesspal app and counting it all up there. I had a naughty day last wkend, finger foods get me every time, but i logged it and the next day worked out harder and ate much less to compensate for some of it. Otherwise i've been having a skinny cow ice cream as a desert - 100cals - but that's still within my calorie intake.
Can I ask, what would be building muscle? Walking/jogging on the treadmill, i didn't think that would do much, or weights, again very small weights....The whole building of muscle confuses me, i can't quite understand at what point of effort muscle starts building.
Will definately take your advice and see if i can find a new type of exercise to add in - maybe some skipping or a bit more bike riding rather than treadmill?
