To start i'd like to say that eating was going great til i ate some violet crumble hahaha but not heaps, and on the chocolate food chain i really think theyre on the lower end of the scale. My dad had a packet of the ones in pieces rather than a whole bar so i had a few while watching the end of the footie
although other than that i didnt eat anything bad, for dinner i had pasta sauce with brown rice at about 6:10pm which was nice and early and the violet crumble bits at about 9:30ish. So although its a bad snack food the timeing was right! haha.
Today: brekky: porridge and tea with skim milk. Soy flat white, lunch will be lentil soup. I have a green apple for a snack in about 30 mins, and for my arvo snack i have a mandarin and my pieces of carrot i left at home yesterday!!
Exercise was 0 yesterday (break day) and i don't think i'll have time tonight but tomorrow im going to try cycle and fat burn together. My friend at the gym will save me a pass
[i always get there too late from work and it fills up fast] im scared of cycle though because im always crap on bikes, but i'll speak to the instructer about form and stuff and hopefully she'll have some pointers i think most of the exercise goes to my quads rather than the whole leg.
If you want a way to prevent snacking brush your teeth or have mints on had - i find food always tastes bad after i brush my teeth or have a mint
that's how i quit smokeing!! Will make the soup over the weekend. I got tons of recipes to try from this site and a couple out of this site so i will let u all know and post the successes for all u soup lovers to try
I LOVE lentil soup and a lemony flavoured one sounds fab!
me too the lemon gives it a slight kick rather than an overpowering flavour, i think some people also use tobasco or both. Its a greek soup, i'll definately give u the recipe, i would post it now but i want to alter it when i make it, i've combined two recipes due to the fat content in one, and not enough spices in the other. Its a vegan recipe so you'll love it ali
Special K have pilates dvds in their packs at the moments
hi lisa, i think i'll be buying some special k
i never eat it though haha. Yoga/pilates combination sounds good though i really need something to regularly stretch my muscles so i get a good long lean muscle. My PT also said that make sure u do squats at full range otherwise u only build up one muscle and it creates a bunched up look (which us ladies dont want!)
It was quite easy to make, too - very important for a doofus in the kitchen like me
hahahaha, i love easy recipes so i'll definately have to try it. My family prefers meat so this might be a good one to try on them
thanks san and *waves* hi! Ali, perhaps u could make it with extra beans (like the 3 bean mix) and no yoghurt? i think the yoghurt is probably to dull the chilli a bit so maybe lessen chilli or put a soy substitute or no fat coconut milk?
Hay there CC! Just popping in to say hello as I haven't been around the traps lately. You and I are around the same weight now having lost around the same amount as well - so I am going to watch your progress with great interest!!!!!
thanks for stopping by! It's always good to have someone around the same weight to loose! we can motivate eachother. I'll have to haunt your thread a bit from now on
Thanks for all your replies guys
