The four week mark in a diet seems quite important to me – it’s getting towards the month point, and it’s somewhat of a milestone. This week seems to have gone quite slowly – it really seems like longer since I last weighed myself! I have to admit that I get quite excited to see if I’ve lost weight each week. Let’s go through my diet and exercise log this week!
I rediscovered an old favourite of mine food-wise this week – Crackerbread! It’s a healthier alternative to bread with far fewer calories and carbs.
Now I know this will get mixed reactions, but my topping of choice has been…banana! I mush up a banana in a bowl then spread it onto the crackers. I think it’s delicious but I know others don’t agree so much!
I’ve kept up with my usual high-fibre cereal for breakfast, although I have had fruit for a change a couple of days this week. My main meals have been a bit sporadic, as I’ve been out and about a bit – I had fish and chips one day (but only ended up eating about 5 chips!) and a meal at a Chinese restaurant another night (although my meal was relatively healthy, just vegetables and a little rice).
Snacks have been my main issue this week. I am a snacker by nature, and begun to get a bit bored of my favourite Snack-A-Jacks Curls. I stopped snacking for a couple of days, then realised I was really missing it! I was looking through the cupboards and found a packet of Monster Munch – as crisps go, they’re not too bad for you! Baked not fried, just over 100 calories…I’ve ended up having a small packet a day, and it hasn’t done me any harm.
I’ve only managed to get to the gym twice this week, which is a bit of a shame. I went swimming once and did cardio and weights on another occasion.
I’m still really enjoying exercise and am starting to find everything a little easier. I’m considering increasing my exercise intensity on each individual session, but I might just mix things up a bit more for now. I still haven’t managed to get to any classes at the gym, which is a real goal for the future!
So, for the fourth time – it’s time for my weight-loss totals…
Weekly weight loss: 2 lbs ** Total weight loss: 10 lbs
Another 2 lbs lost! It’s quite nice to be losing weight as such a constant rate as I know I’m doing it in the healthiest way possible.
