I’m pretty pleased with my first week back on track.
When I trained with Darryl (for the sake of any new readers he is my personal trainer and Jiminy Crickett – http://www.clubonehundred.com) on Friday he suggested I try My Fitness Pal, not for calorie counting (I’ve moved away from that) but to help with nutrition and portion size.
I am hooked! It’s already changed how I eat!
I get fed up with people telling me I need carbs (I never eat bread, pasta, rice and try not to have biscuits/cake!) but I’m easily meeting my carbohydrate target from fruit and vegetables
I’m loving seeing the ‘sugar’ record, it’s made me really look at the amount of fruit I eat and I’m going to change my snacks once I’ve finished my ‘stock’. I now eat the little box of raisins a few at a time, don’t just swallow them in one go!
I’m realising how good fish is for you (thank you Sally Osborne, big shout out to Osborne’s fishmongers for getting me to try new things!)
I’m on getting my fitness back and I finally seem to have recovered from all that kidney stone nonsense!
From now on I’m screenshotting My Fitness Pal!
Got the munchies tonight, typical the night before weigh in!!!
And here’s the nutrition information for the week, aiming for less sugar next week!
That’s 1.6 pounds off!!!!
