Sunday Weigh In 10

It's now been 10 weeks since starting my new healthy lifestyle I decided that each Sunday I will post up my progress, whether successful or not in the hope that it encourages me to stay positive and keep going.  Knowing that I will be sharing it all here will hopefully keep my willpower up!  In order for me to keep track and look back for ideas, I will be listing my food diary here as well (and who knows, it might inspire others to have a go too!)  It also gives me somewhere to put all the photos of the yummy food I love to take as it always looks so good!

This week starts off well but sadly I'm ill again so have been a bit down and fed up!  Sorry for the depressing post today!


Breakfast - bacon bap, ketchup, latte, orange juice
Lunch - cheeseburger, chips, orange juice with soda water, edamame beans
Dinner - 1/2 sushi platter (nigiri, seaweed, salmon sashimi, crab & green bean and salmon & avocado ISO rolls with sesame seeds, soy sauce, wasabi, ginger), san pellegrino water, frozen yoghurt with chocolate crunch balls & strawberries
Snacks - small bag crisps on plane, sparkling water

Exercise - lots of airport walking


Brunch - tuna sandwich, no butter, on wholemeal seeded bread, orange juice
Dinner - Mushroom, green pepper & red onion omelette (more of an eggy mess really!), Tabasco, ketchup, 1 slice wholemeal seeded bread, skimmed milk
Snacks - sweet chilli snack a jacks, reduced salt & sugar baked beans snap pot, cheerios clusters with semi-skimed milk, 1 rolo, cherry yoghurt

Exercise - 30 mins walking

Wednesday: (Woke up with a sore throat again!  Have appt with Doc Thurs for investigations, was managing fine with painkillers but after walking back to work with no appetite after lunch I suddenly felt very nauseous, shivery and went all goose-pimply and pale.  Was driven home again by Kerry and went to sleep for 3 hours!  Seriously fed up!)

Breakfast - Tuna sandwich (as above)
Lunch - orange juice
Dinner - small portion of pasta with peas & spring onion, Sacla tomato & mascarpone sauce, skimmed milk
Snacks - quavers and milk at midnight (when hubby came home from work and woke me as I was soaked with a temp of 38.9!)

Exercise - 45 mins walking

Thursday:  (throat swab & Penicillin from Dr)

Breakfast - none
Lunch - baked potato, butter, tuna, milk
Dinner - small portion of pasta, milk
Snacks - chocolate cake at midnight (again when hubby came home from work)

Exercise - none

Friday:  (blood tests with nurse to check for reason for recurrent throat infections as I've had one illness a month since January and very fed up!!!)

Breakfast - 2 boiled eggs, 1 slice toast & butter, orange juice
Lunch - none
Dinner - rice & pork (defrosted left overs), milk
Snacks - 1/2 melon, 1 apple, Wotsits, milk, orange juice (feeling a bit better this evening and appetite returned),
midnight (getting to be a habit with hubby on late shifts) - cheese & ham on toast, orange juice

Exercise - none

Saturday:  (Finally feeling better and building up my appetite again!  Risked the trip down to Durham as Nik's grandparents, who we rarely get to see, were staying after the wedding before flying back to Kenya.)

Breakfast - Greggs bacon roll, orange juice (en route to Durham)
Lunch - small selection of lunch items: cous-cous salad, Serrano ham, hot smoked salmon, seeded bread, hummous, butter-bean dip, soda water
Dinner - Zen - mixed starters (skewers & dim sum), phuket prawn with rice, soda & lime
Snacks - soda water, small decaf 1 shot skinny latte, skinny peach & raspberry muffin (in car), 1/2 glass champagne

Lunch - none
Dinner - roast dinner (pork, crackling, carrots, parsnips, peppers, asparagus, potatoes, gravy, apple sauce, mustard), skimmed milk
Snacks - tangerine, dates, pear
Supper - 2 slices of cheese on toast (1 with ham), orange juice

Exercise - none (pretty much still napping 3 hours each day!)

And the results this week:

Weight 2 weeks ago - 12 st 7 1/2 lbs
Weight this week - 12st 7 lbs
Loss/Gain in last 2 weeks - -1/2 lb

Total Loss - 11 lbs

Going to Durham may have been a mistake as, although I was feeling much better on Saturday, I am now feeling worse again.  Very annoying especially in spite the fact that I still spent a lot of time in bed down there and other than going out for dinner for a couple of hours we were just in the house due to bad weather anyway, so I didn't feel I was over-exerting myself.  I'm still glad we got to see Nik's grandparents again before they left though and spend a bit more time with them.

I am going back to work today as I can't afford to be off any longer and hate letting people down!  I will not be going swimming again until I am 100% better and plan to take the car to work as my energy levels are still pretty low despite my appetite slowly returning to normal.  Fingers crossed I get back to normal ASAP and they find something treatable in those tests!  Not really caring about weight loss at the moment but trying to still make healthy choices with food (other than all the cheese of course!  Sometimes comfort food is needed!)
