Work.

Work.

Hah! I’d have imagined that working in a fast food restaurant would have put the weight back on me, however, my first two 8 hour shifts have not only got me less weight, but have put a little bit of money in my pocket for the DragonForce concert (yay!) and given me a little bit of muscle, I can feel myself getting stronger.

Aside from having to memorise what’s in each of the set meals for KFC, I haven’t got time to be sitting and trying to snack, besides, we’re not allowed. We’re allowed a meal per shift, but I don’t really like the idea and have been working through my breaks.  We’re allowed to help ourselves to drinks (within reason of course!) but we’re not allowed to drink on the front counter so I have to take it and store it in the staff room and go to the staff room when I need a drink. I’m also only drinking diet, so apart from the teeth damage, I’m not overdosing on sugar.So that’s 8 hours of standing, put chicken in a bucket, cleaning tables, sweeping floors, restocking the front counters with cups, lids, buckets, etc.  So I’m pretty much constantly busy. It’s great!

KFC- lots of chicken!

So much chicken! I will never be able to eat KFC again @_@

So the weigh in this morning?  Well, the past few days I haven’t had much sleep, mostly from insomnia, but last night? Fantastic sleep, I’ve been so busy I’ve completely tired myself out so there’s been chance for muscle and cell repair (which is done through sleep) until last night.  And….?

I’m now 147lbs! Was 175lbs, now 147, that’s nearly 30lbs O_O Bloody hell, I’m just realising this now O.O wow. 2 stone. 2 whole stone O_O WOW.

Time to put it back on xD I need lunch. Nah, but. My original goal was 10stone (140lbs) but I think it might be safe to go down to 9stone.  If I can keep this up I will be there by Christmas 🙂 No more little fat Shanny 🙂

I feel fitter, in control of my eating, more confident and less self hatey, and not to mention, I can do so much more. The whole work thing is making it easier, lifting heavy boxes, and crates of fizzy juice bottles, I’m building muscle too.

I think the biggest difference is my thighs. They were massive, around 75cm, now? 63cm. My stomach? Was 99cm, now 83cm. Hips? 113cm now 97cm. I feel so much better :’)

7lbs till my next big milestone. But I’ll check in before then 🙂 Go me ^_^ Later Taters. xx

About shanhime

Well hello there! Whether you’re a newbie to this blog or a regular in need of a quick reminder on what this blog is about (in summary of course) then I couldn’t recommend a better page. Then again I did write this so I’m somewhat biased…. Well, my name is Shan. It’s not my real or full name but it’s a start and given that we’re on the interwebs it’s hardly a place to start giving out personal information. If you want to get fresh with me you can find my facebook and irratate my there. If you’re really lucky, I might even add you as a friend! But no flirting boys! I have a boyfriend :3 I live in the East of Scotland where is it permenantly freezing. On average we have roughly 4 minutes of sun a year and the chances of me spending a day indoors without exercise is high so don’t expect miracles people. At this moment in time I’m 20 years old. For me, this is a sore point, so mentioning this will result in a severe ignoring or a delete of your comment followed by a smack across the back of the head with a wet mop. Those of you insulted by this should probably leave now as I’m not willing to deal with trolls, gremlins or vampire bats. This is site for mature people looking for information, a litte fun and self help, not people who are fighting with their inner child and losing. That is what xbox live is for. :P Of course, I can have a joke. Sometimes people are just not funny. Unlike me. I am permenantly hilarious. On this blog you’ll find a few tips, the occasional recipe and a few personal thoughts I had on products, foods, snacks and techniques as well as some of my own personal moments. Hopefully some of these will be useful to you and you’ll enjoy sharing these experiences. There’s also the comments sections at the bottom for you to share information and ideas with others and me. Isn’t that great? Oh, my facebook is: http://www.facebook.com/theonlyshanchan
