My Lil Fitness Pal

Having decided to be more sensible with my eating so I can follow a lifelong and sustainable plan, with no extremes of starving or bingeing, I revisited the ‘My Fitness Pal’ app to track what I am eating.  I put in my weight and how much I want to lose a week and it has told me to consume 1,200 calories a day.  Of those calories, I am trying to eat mainly plant food i.e. fruits and vegetables.  But in theory I can have whatever I like, as long as I don’t go over my total allowance for the day.  If I do, I will have to exercise it all off as it also enables you to track exercise and calories burned.

The girl done good!

I had 2 pink lady apples for breakfast and 2 cups of tea throughout the morning.

At lunch time I popped in to Pure for a salad and I chose the ‘Pure Protein’.Pure Protein ingredient list Lots of green leaves which I covered in the fat free kale dressing the salad came with.lunch 29-9-14 Under the leaves were lots of yummy little nuggets of food such as avocado and turkey.  I enjoyed this salad and it was 422 calories, including the dressing.linch 29-9-14 Another cup of tea and lots of water got me through the afternoon.

Dinner was a rather unusual combination of bits and pieces I found in the fridge or cupboard.  4 new potatoes, 1 corn cob, sugar snap peas, some prawns and salmon with 15g butter. dinner 29-9-14 1 All of this was only 395 calories!dinner 29-9-14

I feel completely sated and have no need of anything else to eat even though I have 364 calories remaining ( I had 224 calories left but when I put in the walking I have done today it gave me an additional 140).  I shall go to bed knowing I have lots of calories left over, feeling very pleased I have behaved today.

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in a small village in the beautiful Weald of Kent with my husband and 2 children. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. After all, I live in the 'Garden of England' so it seems silly to not take advantage of that. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
