Fuck. Binged.

Posted on

Hmm :/

Disappointed in myself right now.  I always seem to overeat on days when I got to my Dads. I swear he is trying to overfeed me. I’m so angry and furious and upset with myself. The binge appears to be over and to be fair it has been worse. Overall, today’s fuck up has been sponsored by Morrisons and Iceland.

A pack of crisps and Cheese and Onion Dip.

A Kinder Bueno.

2 Happy Hippos.

A slice of toast on butter.

Super Noodles.

Half a Bowl of Special K

3 Strawberry Shortbreads

fuck. Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck. Also goddamnit. T___T

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!

How do I tone?

Posted on

Hmm I appear to have disapeared for the weekend…. OOPS.

I had somewhat of a bender so to speak.

Well I had planned to write about coping with weekend nomming today but I was pm-ed a question on toning up as opposed to losing weight so I think this takes precedence on the important list. So let’s see.

Well, a lot of people assuming that you can just tone up just like that. You can but it’s not easy to see!  A simple answer is that the muscle definition is not the most difficult part. The losing weight is the difficult part.

“But wait! I don’t want to lose weight, I just want a six pack.”

Well that’s fine but… how can anyone see your six pack if it’s hiding behind the other contents of your fridge? In order to see the results, you need little or less fat hiding the muscle tone. So it’s important to lose any large amounts of excessive fat to see it. That’s what this blog is about.

“Yeah yeah” you say, “I know this, gimme toning tips.”

That, to be honest is harder said than done. I don’t want to disapoint but there is no magical miracle exercise that will make you Arnold Swartzen-dude in a month. The only thing I can suggest is walking.

I’m serious. It’s an all over muscle builder that works the whole body. The legs get firmer from the walking, your hips move as you sway, and your shoulders and arms swing (SOFTLY guys! Don’t hurt yourself) back and forth. Your posture, if you’re walking correctly (believe me, you can hurt yourself if you don’t walk right, muscle sprains, etc.) will also correct and your stomach will firm too. Even as little as a ten minute walk to start with will become a 5mile run several weeks down the road.

Also, you could try yoga. Hard going but worth it. Especially for flexibility.

Oh, and the wii fit 😉

I guess that’s all I know really. Hope this helps, even a little.

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
