New eating plan

So, yesterday afternoon I had my first meeting with the dietitian (not my first ever, but first with this one).  I was so nervous about it (especially about being weighed and measured) but it was not so bad and she was really sweet.  All in all it was good.  Goal weight = 68kgs.  Current weight = 85.something kgs (cringe…).  BF = 38.1% (even worse…).  Meal plan is all about eating low gi and correct portions (especially of carbs, my weakness).


So the plan for this week (suppers) is:

  • Mon – Hake fillet, baby potatoes, steamed veggies
  • Tues – Leftovers from mon made into fish cakes, green beans, salad with avo
  • Wed – chicken stew with rice (chicken, peppers, mushrooms, onions, etc)
  • Thurs – beef stir-fry with rice
  • Fri – chicken and tomato pasta



New exercise program

(very long after I promised it…sorry)

This is my ‘new’ training program (designed by C), that is specifically designed around my fibromyalgia. Hopefully I can gym or do boot camp again soon, but for now its mainly walking and stretching.

Anyhoo onto the program:
Monday – stretch and range of motion(AM), Pilates (PM)
Tuesday – stretch-15 min walk at 75%-stretch
Wednesday – Dr Oz 20min program (AM), yoga (beginners dvd PM)
Thursday – same as Tuesday
Friday – same as Wednesday
Saturday – same as Tuesday
Sunday – same as Wednesday
*increasing the walking every week until total time is anywhere between 30 and 60 mins.

Food has been SHITTY for the last month (?)… Its really gotten bad. I NEED to reign in the eating and the chips. And do some damn cooking………

The plan for the rest of the week is as follows:
Thursday –

BFL update

Hey guys…

Sorry for the lack of blogging… I know I have seemingly fallen off the face of the earth. (I didn’t buy the way :)) My BFL challenge was going so well, then last week I got sick, and now I’m still not better. And I am having a lot of muscle and joint pain. I am not exercising at the moment at all (except for the daily walking with the puppy) and my eating has been TERRIBLE. Also C and I has decided that I must pause my challenge for now. I WILL come back to it as soon as I am feeling better and can do the exercise without hurting my body.

For the moment I will be doing a yoga and walking based program that C will write for me. And I will be seriously overhauling my eating. I will just be calling this my healthy living plan, because that is what it is 🙂

Hopefully a lot more meals and recipes and updates to come!
