That 25th Food Diary…

For full foodie details, remember you can follow me on My Fitness Pal

This week I got back on track completely…really looking at having a balanced diet and exercising well. The weekend is always a struggle for me, as I don’t work on the weekends and my routine is thrown off – but I really tried to not snack and to stay on track..! I took some advice from a friend to give myself a ‘re-feed’ meal on a day that suits me, and so I chose Saturday to up my calories from 1700 to 2000 and within that, give myself a little treat. Not the whole day treat, but just a little something to keep my sanity!!

So, at the end of this week…my breakdown was:

Screenshot_2015-04-26-15-07-23-1

44% Protein / 32% Carbs / 24% Fats

 Considering my goals are 45/35/20, then I am pretty happy with that! I had a couple of lower calorie days; Monday because I just wasn’t very hungry at all, and another on Sunday because I wasn’t exercising and so I didn’t want to eat unnecessarily.

I want to stick to the same next week, eating my goal of 1700 on workout days, and 1500 on non-workout days. Me and Matt are going away next weekend, but we are determined to make sure we stick to the plan. The Wedding (my main goal, remember?) is just under two weeks away now, and I tried on my outfit today and it looked lovely. I need to stick to my plan to ensure that it looks just as lovely in two weeks time!

Root for me people….!
