Rest day again today although I spent most of the day sanding, painting, cleaning and removing excess grout from tiles.

Today I ate:

Breakfast: wholemeal bread roll with a tablespoon of peanut butter
Lunch: 7 medjool dates
Dinner: Sausage Casserole with a cup of Pearl barley (casserole included vegan sausages, butter beans, potatoes, cannellini beans, sweetcorn, chopped tomatoes, onion and garlic
Supper: Warm lemon water

Myfitnesspal cals:1807 - I'm hoping this is accurate as I'm finding it hard to calculate for the main meals- I made a big pot of casserole for all family so can't work out exactly what I ate.

Water intake today: 1 litre - I never seem to drink enough when I'm not at the gym

Happened to be in the area where my gym is so had an impromtu visit and did:


-60 minutes on cross trainer, doing 3.63km and burning 615 calories (30 minutes on level 1. 30 on level 2)
-Abdominal crunches 3 lots of 15 @25
-Leg extension 3 lots of 8 @30
-Pectoral machine 0 - gym was so busy again there was a queue for this whenever i was free so instead i did......
-Rowing machine 25 minutes, 4220 metres, 214 calories

Going today saved me doing a 40 mile round trip tomorrow and the fuel to go with it.

Food today:

Breakfast: Snack pack of rice cakes
Snack: Tropical smoothie
Lunch: Soya burger with bun, with cup of mixed side salad-- Chocolate fudge cake with ice cream for pudding (we were eating out)
Snack:Growing naturals vanilla protein powder made with water
Dinner: Pasta with spicy tomato sauce and grilled whole mushrooms

Myfitnesspals calories: 1875

I'm a bit confused with the calories, myfitnesspal deducts my workout calories from what i've eaten, so should I be eating more calories to reach target amount like it says? (I'm trying to lose weight)

Water consumption today just shy of 2 litres. Weight today 202lbs.

Third Workout done this week already today! Works been very quiet so making the most of the time off. Will have to go to gym again this week though as won't be able to wait until next week!

Workout today:

- 60 minutes on cross trainer doing 3.53kms and burning 489 calories (although I missed where it asked for my weight so i'm guessing it should have been more like yesterdays total of 600 for a similar workout. Level 1 20 minutes, level 2 20 minutes and level 3 20 minutes
- Abdominal crunches 1 lot of 4 @30, 1 lot of 5 @30, l lot of 2 @30, and 1 lot of 10 @25
- Leg extension 3 lots of 8 @30, 1 lot of 2 @25
- Pectoral 3 lots of 11 @25 and 1 lot of 3 @30
- 15 minutes on stationary bike, 8.01 kms burning 98 calories

Food today:

Breakfast: 4 large grilled mushrooms with worcester sauce and 'cheese' powder
Lunch: small portion of pasta with 'cheese' powder
Dinner: 2 soya burgers in a bun, couscous, grilled mushrooms and a slice of garlic bread.

Myfitnesspal : 1283 calories

I wasn't very hungry today really. Looking at it now I should have tried to use more calories before dinner. Water consumption: 1 litre and a half. Weight 202lbs

With work being slow I managed to read a bit more or Roberts book. I hope to have it finished by the end of the week.

i know what its like to have a bad day at work, try not to let it affect your workout and nutrition pan as your doing a great job.
Enjoy reading your journal, keep up the good work

Thanks for the encouragement Matt!! Once upon a time I would have eaten for comfort but I've managed to curb that in recent months.

I didn't get up until 11am today after a late night surfing the internet, luckily I wasn't meant to be at work. As soon as I got up I was busy cleaning, cooking and organizing. I took 2 loads of stuff to the tip and loaded the car up with 7 boxes (!!) of paperwork to take to the office tomorrow. It's been a busy day but I enjoyed it (am I weird?!)

Not been too hungry today probably because of the late start, I had:

12pm: Peanut butter Sandwich
6pm: Vegetable Stew with Dumplings

Myfitnesspal calories: 1285 Water consumption: 1 litre

Hoping to go to the gym tomorrow, fingers crossed.

Didn't get to the gym today like I had hoped, I spent all day running errands. Not happy :( but at least I've already done my 3 sessions this week :)

Today I've eaten:

Breakfast: Beans on toast
Lunch: Jacket Potato with beans and side salad
Dinner: Soya burger in bun, couscous, tomatoes,spinach and grilled mushrooms

I've come to realise I'm not very adventurous when it comes to eating different things. MyFitnessPal calories 1642.

Water consumption: 1 and a half litres

At work again tomorrow but may get chance to squeeze in a dog walk on the beach.

Lunch: Boiled brocolli, carrots and potatoes with sausages and gravy
Snack: Snack pack of rice cakes
Dinner: 2 Sandwiches with mock chicken slice, tomatoes and spinach,watercress and rocket. 4 grilled mushrooms

- Abdominal crunches - not done today (ran out of time)
- Leg Extensions 3 lots of 8 @35
- Pectoral 1 lot of 2 @30 and 3 lots of 5 @25 (I really failed at this today!)
- Chest press 3 lots of 8 @25
- Stationary Rowing 20 minutes, 3333m, 168 Calories

Food today:

Breakfast: Snack pack of rice cakes
Lunch: Sausage casserole with pearl barley
Dinner: Nothing yet.....not feeling hungry again :(

Calories so far today according to myfitnesspal: 1282 , Water so far: 1 litre and a half. Weight today 200lbs :) Since October 2nd 2011 I have lost 17.5 lbs.

First of all. Update to Mondays calories. Total was 1690 after supper. (i had crumpets with worcester sauce)

Yesterday I didn't get chance to post.....I didn't get back from work until 1am! (we had been working on a car 100 odd miles away!) and by then I was ready for my bed! Total Calories yesterday was 1484. I ate:

Breakfast: Bean Salad
Lunch: Nutty rice salad, rice cakes and an iced finger bun
Dinner: Beans on Toast

No chance for a workout, Water consumption : 1 litre and a half

Today I got up late after getting to bed so late. I spent the whole day cleaning the house while my partner went to work. Couldn't get to the gym tonight because I need my partner here to watch our daughter so I'm hoping to go first thing tomorrow before work.

Today I ate:

Breakfast: 'Beef' slices
Lunch: 3 Grilled mushrooms
Dinner: Pasta with tomato sauce

Myfitnesspal calories:921 so far. Water consumption: 1 litre so far. Not really hungry but I guess thats because I've not been up all day.

Going to go and get an early night now :)
