Diet Cheif Review Part 3...

A few weeks ago I started to trial the diet chef meals to see what I think of breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. You can read the first couple of posts here part 1 and part 2 .

This week has been hard work trying to stick to a diet, as I have been away. So the diet chef meals have had to be put on the back burner.

Carrying around soup and dinners that need to be warmed up to consume when your out is virtually impossible. Staying away in a hotel where there is no where to warm the food up either.

Although I have been trying to stick to a calorie control and healthy treats. I did have the occasional bit of  fast food and sugary treats whilst away, I did supplement it with lots of  walking though!! 8 miles around the peak district and 13 miles a day around London!

Good news is the first week I lost 3 lbs in weight and even with eating my normal food this week I did not put the weight back on,,,yeahh!!

Here is some of the diet chef food I have manage to try this week-

Diet Chef Review : Part 2...

Remember last weeks post that I am reviewing a diet at the minute? My first post here - Diet Chef Review

I am doing really well at the minute, I think. The hardest part at first was giving up treats!! Surprise Surprise.. Red Magazine described me as a sugar snacker.  Giving up just like that to one small treat a day made me poorly. For a day and half  I had a terrible migraine that would not go even through the night. I know it was a lack of sugar as I have tried many times before to cut down and get bad headaches.

Diet Chef Review...

Diets, diets, diets, do diets really work?Can you stick to a diet or would you give into temptation at the first hurdle? (Well me) Many times Ive tried for only a day and then broke it!What would a diet have to offer you to make you stick to them?

Blueberries,Banana And Granola Breakfast Smoothie : Janathon day 6...

Today is long run day, having to do 12 miles on my own was itself a challenge.

I nearly didn't do it.

None of my friends were running today.

 I was going to do 6 miles this morning and 6 later. Hmm like with a dinner to cook and find time before getting the 2 youngest children bathed and to bed early for the first day back to school tomorrow, no I knew that plan wouldn't work!!

New Years Resolutions For 2013 And Janathon day 1...

Only managed one short run today, had another lay in, no London Marathon plan yet, and a New Years dinner with wine and cake to plan...

Oh well I have plenty of time to exercise once the children go back to school ,,,right!!

Today I manage 3 miles,don't you just hate it when your Garmin runs out of charge at a mile?

I decided to do my 3 mile loop and run later,this never happen as I had been good all day eating Smoothie for breakfast, soup for lunch but then all I could think about was a nice big dinner and a cake !!

My New Years Resolutions For 2013...
