Day 1

So this is day one. 
I am sharing my daily: diet, exercise and general feelings. I will write a post, late evening, every day for the month of October.

I am hoping it will help me see where I am going wrong. I don't want people to pick holes in it, but some advice/support would be very much appreciated! I shall break each day down to 4 sections, how much I write with it will probably vary, day to day.

So here goes:



Breakfast: 2 slices of Bacon, cooked on the George Foreman griller, in a sandwich.
Dinner: Cauliflower, Broccoli, spinach and pasta. Baked in a lactose free cheese and milk sauce. (I didn't eat it all, I was full)
Snack: Packet of Pombears (light crisps) and sugar snap peas.
Tea: Frozen Pastie, oven baked.


 A lot of walking, followed by a 1 hour Zumba class, this is a screenshot of my fitbit from today:

General Well Being:

I felt a lot better today, the iron tablet I've been prescribed are obviously helping to keep me awake.

Mental health:

I've been a bit nervous all day, because I wanted to measure and weigh at the start of all this. (I'm not going to share those details, I'm sorry, but I cannot put that out there!) 
My measuring did not go well, there is no real change in the last 5 weeks! I go to Zumba often, but I do acknowledge that I haven't been as often this past month, thanks to my exhaustion.
I will weigh in the morning, and take a 'before' picture, to add to tomorrows post.
Right now though, I'm feeling incredibly disheartened by the lack of change to my size.


So that is day one in a nutshell!
I know I shouldn't have eaten the pastie. I also know I shouldn't take the measurements too badly, I'm on a lot of medication and I missed a fair bit of exercise this month. That is something I shall take into tomorrow, to help me move forward.


  1. Nowt wrong with having a pasty for dinner. I didn't know exhaustion was kicking you hard to, that's why I'm failing in fit bit recently, I'm asleep so much recently. X

    1. Hope you are trying the iron tablets, they are really helping me x

  2. Whatever the numbers are saying, you're making positive changes and that can only be a good thing :)

  3. Wishing you the best of luck for this month.
    Don't be too hard on yourself. xx

    1. Its mostly about honesty, seeing where/if I'm going wrong x


I do love comments and read them all, please be nice and tboughful to others x
