Didn’t do too well food wise today. I went to a beer festival with a friend, and got a take away pizza! Knowing this was happening I did do a lot of exercise through the day, including lots of walking.

I was back on track today.

Day 80

OK – So it’s been a bad day. I honestly have no idea how many calories I had, but it’s a lot! And I mean a lot! We went to a friend’s house for a BBQ, and plenty was consumed! I did still intend to do exercise, but when we got back, late in the day, I was about to go for a run, when the security company at church rang to say the alarm was going off. So I had to go round and check the building etc. By the time I came back, it was so late I abandoned the day as a right off! I will get back on track tomorrow.

Day 81

Calories ate: 1881
Calories lost through exercise: 441
Net Calories: 1441
Exercise: Gym – 5K on the treadmill

Pleased to be back on track today. Fitting the time in was hard, but did my run and then got on with the rest of the day. I definitely suffered for my poor eating choices yesterday, but am pleased to be back on track.

Day 82

Calories ate: 2122
Calories lost through exercise: 528

Again, a good day. Time was, as normal a struggle, but feeling good again.

Day 83

It was almost impossible to fit in exercise today, but I did and I feel positive.

Another positive day.
