Diet Day 011
My weight today is, extremely frustratingly, still, after a week, 85 kilos. I guess it is because I have a lot of work at the moment, and so I spend all day sitting at the computer.
I was sorely tempted to reduce my calorie budget today, but I resisted the urge. I know my current budget of 1,600 calories will bring weight loss. I just have to stay with it a little linger.
I had a pre-breakfast snack of a half a banana at 50 calories, then breakfast was one slice of toast (60 calories), cheese (50 calories) and milky coffee (60 calories), making 220 calories all together. That left 1,380 calories for the rest of the day.
Then, a couple of hours later, I had another slice of toast (60 calories) and some hummus spread on it (20 calories), with milky coffee (60 calories) making 140 calories for that tiny snack and leaving me 1,240 calories in my budget.
Then five or six hours later, I had a veggieburger and beer, with hummus and cheese. Let's call that 600 calories, which is probably too high, but I don't want to underestimate anything while I'm plateauing. So that left 640 calories.
Then I had some lovely strawberry yogurt for 200 calories. That left 440 calories. Coming under budget by such a huge amount feels good, and is bound to bring results tomorrow.
