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

Constipation.

Posted on

This is a rather odd topic I know but some people actually don’t know why and how they are clogged up. xD Naturally, fresh fruit and vegetables are natures way of flushing out the  system.  Even if you think you can lose weight without fruit and vegetables or they are too complex to think up ways to cook them, remember, it’s okay to eat many of them raw! (Except maybe potatoes). No-one will think you’re weird if you’re out on a bus nomming an apple, well….they might if you’re deep-throating a cucumber while attempting to hide from view in the back seat….

GROSS OUT WARNING :  – GUYS LOOK AWAY IF PERIODS GROSS YOU (THOUGH KEEP IN MIND, THIS MIGHT HELP YOU WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND/WIFE/MISTRESS/FANCY-BIT/ LIFE-PARTNER/RIGHT-HAND IF SHE’S GRUMPY) AND SCROLL DOWN TO THE SAFE ZONE xD

Periods. Awful, messy, moody, depressing things. You’re emotionally charged and losing blood. Damn right you’re pissed of, but that’s not all! You can also get constipated due to the hormones going “I don’t fucking know :D”. One of the ways I learned to help is eating more fruit and vegetables and heaps more water. You’re flushing blood out so the body clings on to every last bit of water it can so drink more. Lean meats like grilled chicken are  always good but especially good now for replenishing lost iron in the blood, and milk replaces the calcium to reduce cramps so that’s something to try to. Banana’s are good for extra potassium too! Simply put, even though you feel like crap and want to eat chocolate and crisps, you’ll feel better with healthier food. I heard that it can get worse as you get older though so if it gets completely out of control, maybe check with your doctor, perhaps it might be the onset of IBS? p.s. Online doctors are NOT a good idea.

Purple Cow

I wouldn’t recommend Milk from this source….unless it’s CHOCOLATE Milk.

SAFE ZONE (For the cowards out there :P)

It’s always a good idea to eat a little salad with every meal. A lot of people think that if you have salad with your dinner then you don’t need to have salad with your other meals. My boyfriend’s parents helped me learn a neat little trick 20% meat, 40% carbs and 40% vegetables. For EVERY meal. It helps you stay regular. Remember, not going enough can cause bowel cancer among other things due to the bacteria… (Ew!) and makes for a very grumpy person! So keep nomming green 🙂

That doesn’t mean cut out fats completely!!! That’s impossible, just keep paying attention to what you are nomming!

Oh, I’m also gonna post what I ate today for reflection purposes…. and in case anyone is interrested 😛

FOOD DIARY – 22/06/2012

Breakfast (at 12.30pm)

boiled and chopped up egg (in a cup) with four crispbreads – 200kcal

I was disappointed in this because I boiled the egg for too long and it tasted all dry and blergh!  I settled on eating it anyway due to hunger. It was okay, but it could have been much better .___.

Snack (at 3pm)

Two Packet of Crisps – 200kcal

Yeah so I had an accident. They were there and I was bored and there was nothing on the telly. I need to get out more and stop lurking near food!

Dinner (6.35pm)

Pasta with peppers and mushrooms in a tomato and basil sauce – 300kcals

REALLY REALLY YUMMY! It made up for the iffy overcooked breakfast. I’m proud of this because I managed to stop when I was full and binned the extras that I could not finish so that I wouldn’t be tempted later. my stomach must be shrinking.

Supper (22.14)

Crispbreads (x 2) Cottage Cheese, Ham and Salad – 160kcal

 

Drinks with countable Kcalories

Two x Glass of Milk – 200kcal

Worth it 😉

After having that pasta, I’m stuffed. It’s 8pm and I don’t think I’ll need anything else for the night. yay!

Welcome to my Blog :)

Welp, I should introduce myself, right? Wrong. 😉 You’ll find that HERE. HAHAHA I’m hilarious…. and that should describe my awful sense of humour.

Okay! So, this blog. Well, in a nutshell it’s my way of losing weight and maybe inspiring others to do so too so let’s get started….

Hmm….. food. The struggle, the fight, the fear, the fun.

So far I’ve managed to lose 14lbs in my attempts to get down to a good weight. This is a rough estimate of my weight somewhere between a month and two months ago….

The gothic whale

I couldn’t begin to remember all the things I’ve done to lose this weight so I’m not going to bother. instead I’m going to record, from here on in, all the things I’m GOING to do to lose the remaining 17lbs I need to lose. Hopefully, I’ll get some more pictures pretty soon so I can compare then to now. 🙂

Till next time, Adeiu x
