Yesterday I finished up with 1628 on myfitnesspal, I had pasta with a tomato sauce for dinner. I also drank a further 500mls.
Thanks jmichael614 I will definitely try out the smoothie you mentioned. I went shopping today and bought a heap of fruits
I got to the gym today- I'm very happy! My workout looked like this:
- Cross trainer: 60 minutes on level 5, 638 Calories and 3.65kms
- Abdominal crunches: 3 sets of 15 @25 ( can seem to manage to do even 1 at 30)
- Leg Extensions: 3 sets of 8@35 and again after a nice bloke came up and showed me how i should adjust the machine to suit my short legs another lot of 3 of 8@35. It felt so much better the second time!!
- Pectoral 3 sets of 7 @30
Thats all I had time for today - Theres a limit on the car park I use of 2 hours, not sure why I didn't manage to fit in my usual workout.
Breakfast: Bean spread on a rye crispbread, 4 portobello mushrooms grilled
Lunch: 2 Soya burgers in 2 buns with cucumber salad, raw spinach and tomatoes
Dinner: Pack of rice snacks--- I'm so hungry though so there will be more to add to that.
Calories so far: 1317 calories Water so far: One and a half litres
I'm so glad this challenge was set! It gave me the extra bit of motivation I needed after Christmas to get my butt back to the gym and back to eating better. I've managed to go to the gym 3 times a week like I aimed for and I have also kept another one of my new years resolutions.....to not bite my nails.
This month I had tried to drink as much water as I could each day although I do find it difficult...I've not always hit the 2 litres per day like I had hoped....so that is Februarys challenge for myself- Along with purchasing (and using) some protein powder because I've not been hitting my protein targets with food alone the past month.
