Food Diary and Stats

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

I thought I would post 9 days of my food diary to give you an idea of what I'm eating lately.
In 9 day's I've lost 1.8kgs without even trying, honestly, I just listen to my hunger signals. Since I've got a cold it's probably an advantage due to the fasting but this is pretty damn close to what I eat anyway. No fruit, it's winter and I don't feel like fruit at the moment.

I definately know this isn't water weight as my pants feel loser and I'm pretty stoked to finally be in the 70's :) Now when I was bigger I always said to myself once I see 70 something on the scale it's time to start adding resistance training, sometimes weighing yourself is such a mental thing and can really depress you when you don't see the 'right' number. I know that as soon as I start working out the scale is not a good way to measure success as body composition changes which is what I want, more muscle and less fat!

So since I know I've finally dropped into the 70's I'm going to refrain from weighing myself, not sure how long this will last but I'm determined. I've taken all my measurements also which astounded me how much I've lost since I've started, here's my measurements:

Tuesday 2nd June – weigh in 81.2kg
8am: 2 poached egg, 2 strips bacon, a few walnuts and 1 small piece 85% chocolate
