If the mirror and my clothes told a contradictory tale to the scales I would happily ignore the number but I can see & feel that I have gained weight - as in got bigger - and that is what I am trying to address, not the actual number ifykwim.

 

9am - 2 eggs scrambled in ghee with scallions & smoked salmon, cherry tomatoes on the side, black coffee

 

1pm - leftovers from yesterdays dinner - taco salad

 

5.30pm - Toms butter chicken + half portion of basmati rice. Chocolate coffee + sm. banana

 

7pm -  boxfit - omg what a workout, I will feel that tomorrow!

 

Water - 2 contigo's (24oz each) + 2 mugs (10oz each) of Tazo orange tea. Oh and another Contgo at gym but I'm not counting that. So daily water goal met :)

 

Will have half an apple & some walnuts shortly & another 10oz mug of herbal tea

Hi D, I'll join the +severalpounds club. I was just about to type the same in reply to Beth about the number. It's just the feeling that is SOOO annoying and impossible to escape. Logic can't deal with it. The only thing that helps is wearing clothes that feels alright. 

 

What's a boxfit? Class at your gym? 

 

Whoa I think you beat me with the amount of water chugged. I drink like an elephant usually.

Yeah, but when even your larger clothes are too tight....... Then I guess... It's time to roll the sleeves up and get on it! So in that light I will go for a run at work today.... It's just been too cold in the mornings here to go outside in the dark!

And I will drink more water too!

I know what you mean Derval!  If my jeans had got a bit looser, I wouldn't have given a rat's @$$ about the extra weight, but they got tighter, so I wasn't buying it.

 

Getting on with things in my own way now - mostly Whole 30, but not 100%.

Yeah nadia, boxfit is a class at my new gym. Last night we did skipping to warm up, then punching with gloves & pads in pairs, then punching the bags, with squat jumps, burpee jumps & sprint intervals. More punching in pairs.

Also did supersets of elevated press ups, chest presses off the bands, tricep dip & bicep curls off the bands.

Really tough

That sounds like a stellar workout Derval. I'm sweating just reading it.

While my pants aren't tighter and I'm keeping off the 5 I shed in may on my first 30 days, I'm not due fluffing anymore and I want to. My meals are modest, 1000-1200 calories a day with an hour of walking or an hour of Pilates reformer 4x a week. Not surevwhynthings aren't moving at least a little.

Wow Calee, that seems like very low cals to me, esp when what we eat is quite high in calories - ie protein & fat - maybe you aren't eating enough?

But hey what do I know? :lol: I'm in the same boat!

Period arrived this morning 3-4 days early, strange.....but meant I could try out my new Lunette cup! More secure feeling than the mooncup so far

 

9am - omg delish breakfast! Had some leftover curry from last night, mostly sauce, so I fried up some spring onion & red pepper in ghee, added that to the sauce, then poached 2 eggs in the sauce. YUMMY!

 

1pm - rocket salad with avo, king prawns (fried in ghee) & melon (very little, wasn't ripe  :( ). Choc coffee + small banana

 

5.15pm - home made pesto from my home grown basil (yay!). Used parmesan in it. Fried bacon lardons (non-comp brand) and cherry tomatoes and added that & the pesto to zoodles. Had some toasted pine-nuts and a bit more parm on top.

 

Water - So far, 2 Contigo's, 1 300ml? herbal tea, 500ml sparking water. So that's goal met. 

 

Will have half an apple & walnuts and another herbal tea later with Breaking Bad

Wow, it sounds very intense. Challenging workouts are awesome, especially when you progress with time. So glad you have cool new gym around. 

 

Hang in there, periods are evil times (as far as i remember  :mellow: ) when everything is tight and uncomfortable. Hopefully everything will fall into place soon.

How come your food sounds more interesting then mine. I was holding a bag of Marconi almonds in my hand on Sunday, then put them back. I knew I'd have to sit and eat 1/2 the bag. I love them too much. Got Mac nuts instead cuz I can measure an ounce and walk away.
