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 Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. 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 do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. 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. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
