Day Nineteen – Maintaining

I’ve been really stressed this week; thinking about putting an offer in on this flat and I haven’t been sleeping well. I’m finding myself really hangry amd snapping at things I normally wouldn’t! I need to eat better and work out to relieve this, but this week of early mornings does not seem to have helped.

It also doesn’t help that I seem to be maintaining my weight, despite working out hard! I have been a lot less rigid with my calorie counting (trying to use things up) and I think that has contributed. However, I’m not beating myself up about that too much because I’ve been flexible and am managing to eat things I notmally wouldn’t without feeling guilty; a massive breakthrough for me! I’d have cried if I ate a bowl of pasta for lunch 4 weeks ago!

At the gym today, I returned to the epileptical purely because my legs were too sore to run. I performed 30 minutes at effort level 4 and burned 255kcals. I then went on to do some work on my arms! I was shattered afterwards and could not face the day at work.

It’s been a really long week at work and exceptionally quiet, meaning I’m constantly thinking about food and fighting any urges to constantly munch at my desk. I just don’t bring loads of snacks to work and that way I dont have a choice. The other girls in my office are all trying to eat well too, so that really helps. However, I have noticed that they’ve gone from unhealthy diets, to eating less than I do! It does make me feel a little guilty but then I’m working out and they’re not so I need the extra calories.

Speaking of extra calories, there was a few today:

  • Apple and Grape Bag
  • Nutrigrain Blueberry Bar
  • 2 x Sweet Chilli Lentil Curls
  • Chicken and Couscous
  • Thai Red Chicken Curry w/ Prawn Crackers (I had to make a big effort not to freak out about this!)

After a big day of eating, I was happy to just chill out on the sofa watching TV for the evening.. It’s 9pm and I’m off to bed with an ear infection!
