I am proud that I have come to bed tonight, away from the kitchen when all I want to do is eat. I have stayed on plan except that I am short of a couple of snacks earlier in the day and it is too late now. This is the 2nd time this week ....Sunday being the other when I could have turned to comfort eating. Everytime I avoid the munchies I grow stronger. That's my belief anyway.

Yesterday I did really well. Ate to plan and exercised at the gym. The beach has continued to be rough and unpleasant so again I didn't go for a walk outside today. I also feel very tired .... I usually take at least one day each week to simply Blob-Out, but that is becoming more difficult as I fit in gym sessions & work. Today we went to Matarangi where I did my laundry in the nice clear water there. We have good safe water here but it is tea coloured ... doesn't do much for my whites and pretty colours.

I have just realised I have said I would post food & exercise each day as part of the 2 week challenge, and I haven't been doing it.

Today I have done no significant exercise.
I had a strawberry/protein smoothie for breakfast, at about 11.30am. I make my own with 1/2 cup milk, 15gm whey powder, 1/4 cup thick, plain yoghurt, (greek style), and about 1/4 cup frozen berries.
About 2 pm I made a salad of lettuce, celery, carrot & spring onion, (scallion), with an 85gm can of lite tuna and 15ml Paul Newman Light Honey Mustard Dressing. About 6 pm I had slices of beef roast, that I forgot to weigh, with lettuce leaves and carrot sticks. I ate a whole fresh persimmon and 1/2 cup WW jelly.
To top up I had 1/4 of a protein bar and 20 gm LF cheese for supper. I've drunk less than 2 lt. today.

Summary:- 3 meals & 1 snack with an estimated total of 50 gm Carbohydrate.
6 large mugs of herbal tea unsweetened.
No exercise.
Negative ketosis
A lttle more weight gone.

Too tired to write anything interesting ..... Goodnight & God Bless.

Good for you for avoiding the unnecessary snacking!

We need to find ways to get the comfort in without the food part. :)

Congratulations. You sound as though you are doing really well.

The weather is beginning to improve here. We have had a really strange start to spring. I went for a bike ride this morning, then came home and stretched out on the couch with the dogs and watched my NASCAR race. :-) Now I'm catching up on some neglected reading of my blog roll.
