One Week In

Yeah!!!! One week in and my headaches from sugar withdrawal have gone, cravings have mostly gone except when I am reading a book and it describes the deliciousness of Krispie Kreme donuts. Damn you authors, tempting me to break my diet.

Anyway, I have run a bit, cycled a bit this week. This is me in all my fatness. I am putting it out there because this is a…get me back to fitness blog now, until I am fit enough to cycle further.

I look like a giant threw up on me. I also have the new giant shirt, but it is too small. So when you see me wearing that I will be ecstatic. 

Breakfasts: this week have consisted of egg white omelettes and salmon. To be honest I am always surprised when the salmon changes colour on cooking, mornings. 

Lunch: homemade soups, usually some meat and veggie cooked and whizzed with a hand blender. Whatever I see in the shop.

Dinner: whatever needs finishing in the fridge, but non carb, so no bread or rice, cookies or sweets, or fruit. Actually this week I took myself out for steak and wine.

I didn’t eat the corn. I couldn’t remember if it was on my “yes” list.

Snacks: cheese, little dried fish, squid pieces, nuts.

This is one time living in Japan helps, there are lots of weird snacks if you are brave enough.

And totals for the week. I have lost 2kg, I am stoked, amazed and happy with that.


Good Start.

I did it, I started a diet and exercise program. And on a Wednesday, not a Monday. That is an accomplishment in itself. Not going to go into too many details about that as there are so many out there and many debunkers of all regimes. Basically I am reducing carbs, increasing fresh veggies with 30 minutes of some for of exercise a day…even if it is just quick walking on the treadmill.

Today I cycled to buy fresh food. I as going to go in the car then laughed at myself…missed opportunity avoided. It was nice to be on the bike, even if I have only missed it a week. Plus I took the advice of and got a soft cover for my cameras too. That means I can cycle somewhere with a camera without it digging in my back or worrying  to much about damage.

It’s super and sticks to itself, fits all shapes and sizes.

Only problem is work starts tomorrow so will have to wait to try it out properly.
