Weight Loss | Week 2

What have I been eating?

Using My Fitness Pal i've been working out what I can and can't have in the day, what I tend to do is plan what i'm going to eat for the day, then see what the calories are and what I have left or what I have to substitute. The app took into consideration my current weight and active levels to determine how many calories I should be consuming a day in order to lose my request of -2lbs loss per week, so my daily food intake has to be 1300!

I've not taken any photos this week of the meals unfortunately but will start again for this week :)

Week 2 Results

TOTAL loss: -8lbs

I'm so so happy with losing another 4lbs, I've worked my ass off and will admit I had a few days of struggling not to scoff my face, but I persevered and so pleased I did! I'm down 8lbs altogether and am only 5lbs off my target I was aiming for, for December. It'll be nice to enjoy myself over Christmas a little bit so i'm going to carry on eating as I am and exercising everyday too! I've just started going out with one of my friends for jogs 3 times a week too for extra motivation, today was hard, different terrains and inclines. We are building ourselves up by walking, jogging and eventually even some running. Its been a long time since i've jogged properly so I struggled today, but we did 45 minutes and burned just under 200 calories! Yay, every little helps :)
