Day 4 & 5 - Progress!
Weight 168.6 to 166.8 (down 1.8lbs! 🥳 DOWN 3.1lbs in 5 Days) Body Fat 29.5 to 29.1% (dropped 0.4% Body Fat)
Progress! I like it! Overall the eating has been much better especially during the day. In the evening I'm indulging in a few handfuls of crisps and a glass of wine (Hell I need something to contend with lockdown!) but I've been staying off the sugary crap really well. Sugar is showing up as the No.1 way to add we
My Story (written in Jan 2019)
I'm a do-er. Always on the go and so busy that I don't think. I'm either 100% on or STOP. I'm either physically exhausted and my mind is occupied so doesn't overthink or I'm a lazy sloth and my mind goes like an express train and I can't sleep. I've steadily gained weight over a few years (mainly thanks to party sized bags of crisps!) I run marathons or I take the kids 1km to school in the car. I'm not taking care of my body and it's starting to show.
Day 3 - That was better!
Weight 170.1 to 168.6 (down 1.5lbs! 🥳) Body Fat 29.5 to 29.5% (level)
So my weight went down a bit (YAY!) but the Body Fat % stayed the same (BOO!) That must have been water weight. Glucose is stored with water in the muscles - use up some of the glucose and the water goes too. What I really want is my body to use the fat as fuel. It'll get there soon.
Morning - black coffee
Day 2 - Mmmmmm interesting!
Weight 170.1 to 170.1 (level) Body Fat 29.5 to 29.5% (level)
So that was interesting - I had very minimal carbs all day but lost it in the evening and ate a party size bag of crisps BUT my weight stayed the same! Is this because my carb intake over the day was still below 100g and my sugar intake was virtually nil????? I had expected my weight to go up again.
Black coffee in the morning
So I've had enough!!
Enough of feeling a bit podgy and overweight, of being tired and can't be bothered, of feeling older... I'm tired of buying new clothes to suit a new me only to have them look frumpy or "mutton dressed as lamb" on a saggy body.
I want to have energy!! To feel energised!! I want to look in the mirror and smile. I want to be back to my bouncy, dynamic self of my younger days (I'm only 48 by the way! I sound like I'm a dinosaur!) I'm tired of life just craw
Day 1 - disaster!!!
Weight 169.9 to 170.1 (UP 0.2lb) Body Fat 29.1 to 29.5% (UP 0.4%)
Ok so I'm not quite sure I can count that as Day 1 of Primal - it was a disaster!!
Black coffee in the morning 2 instant coffees with full fat milk
Got hungry (and hangry!) and wasn't prepared so ended up eating 8. Cream crackers and cream cheese as I couldn't be bothered making anything but wanted to eat. Apathy was ruling in the kitchen
So Day 1 saw the old sofa being re-upholstered and Day 2 I made new. curtains for the bedroom. I feel I may have peeked too soon and should have eeked these jobs out a bit more. By the time it's safe to emerge back into society I'll have a STUNNING new looking house! lol.
The kids have been good, quite subdued actually with Ch quiet and a bit worried about the whole situation. The boys are still coughing but are fine L has a sore side but my gut it telling me he's pulled wee muscle coug
In our house the kids are not allowed phones in their bedroom or for 30 mins before bedtime. We've found this "calming down" period helps them get off to sleep right away. Phones are also barred from the bathroom on hygiene (and other!) reasons. So I'm in favour of a room phone ban.
What about you?
This just made my day!
I was given this sweet, little Good Luck charm from a fabulous Lady and I thought "that just sums up what zero49 is all about".
Giving time to each other is one of the most supportive, kind things to do and yet how often do we do it? We'll send a 'quick' text, or an 'instant' message but. giving someone your time is the most precious thing we can do because our time IS so precious. It tells the pother person "you're special enough to me that I want to give you s
The recent, sad news surrounding Caroline Flack has brought many issues to the forefront. The issues of press harassment has again reared it's ugly head, personal lives of public figures being seen as "fair game", trial by press etc but I keep coming back to the baseline thought that a human being felt so low, so completely isolated and helpless that she saw no other option than to stop her life - permanently. How low does one have to feel for this to be the only, or preferred option? How bleak
