Following on from my previous post I'm going to be doing a weekly fitness diary throughout January (depending how it goes I might carry it on throughout February until I reach my goal, but let's not get too ahead of ourselves!)
As mentioned in my Fitness Plan post I am following the Slimming World programme and also the Insanity Workout to help me reach my fitness goals.
In the diaries I'll be showing you what I've eaten throughout the day and also what exercise if any I have done. I hope by doing this I can help inspire you to join in and kick start the motivation!
Monday 4th January 2016
Now Mondays can be a bit wobbly as it's food shopping day so it might be that we haven't got much 'healthy' food in the cupboards and also this was day one of the plan and the first shopping trip after Christmas which meant all we had was pretty much chocolate and rubbish!
But I didn't do too bad....considering.
Breakfast - a bowl of golden nuggets cereal with semi skimmed milk
Lunch - Cheese and tomato sandwich with a banana (not too bad)
Dinner - King Prawn stir fry with basmati rice
Water - 1 glass
Snacks - 2 Satsumas
Exercise - None :-(
Tuesday 5th January 2016
Breakfast - Strawberry Muller light yogurt with porridge oats and blueberries
Lunch - Mexican rice with tuna and crab sticks
Dinner - Ham and Mushroom Omelette
Water - 1 glass (need to improve on this)
Snacks - Banana and 2 Satsumas
Exercise - Cardio Circuit Insanity Workout

Water - 2 glasses (getting better!)

Saturday 9th January 2016
Breakfast - Porridge with Honey (from Costa!)

Also had a few diet cokes with vodka with the meal.
Sunday 10th January 2016
Breakfast - Weetabix with semi skimmed milk
Lunch - More Italian Chicken and tomato soup (I'm afraid I may turn into an Italian chicken soon! haha)
Dinner - Now it's a lazy Sunday as always and we were suppose to have steak but ended up just having Nacho's (Face covering monkey emoji)
Water - One Glass
Snacks - Didn't really have snacks today
Exercise - None
You may notice my food can be a bit repetitive but I'm one of those people who end up in a routine and find it a little easier just have the same type of meals - I'm not very creative when it comes to cooking!
Making these food diaries is also great for me to look at and see what I can improve, at the moment I definitely need to get my arse in to gear, do more exercise and drink more water.
If your diet is something you think needs looking at it's definitely worth keeping a food diary so you can see where to improve and maybe change a few things.
