I feel my head is the right place right now especially about the dieting. I also feel so free now that I don't do calorie counting anymore. Now I realise it was restricting me or I felt restricted. And I am happy to say that sofar it is working. I can see the numbers on the scale going down. And I feel like I am eating healthier because I have to eat more veggies. I love fruit so that is never going to be a problem. I have to be more creative with my food which is a good thing. So let's hope my positive feeling and thinking is going to continue. Right now I don't miss pasta but then again this is only the 3rd day. It is funny that when you set your mind to it you can change your eating habits.

My big holiday is at the end of September. I want to lose 8 kg by then and have 12 weeks to do it. It might be a lot but I want to put my goal high. So I will make extra effort to exercise and eat healthy. Right now I exercise 5 times a week. And I want to keep that up as it is very achievable for me right now.

Breakfast: Porridge oats, skimmed milk, sunflower seeds and golden syrup
Snack: Carrots
Lunch: Mixed salad + dressing. Dessert: Raspberry and Nectarine
Snack: Nakd bar and maybe a banana if I need it before my workout

Dinner: Bolognaise sauce
without the pasta. Dessert: Pineapple
Snack: 25gr almonds

Drinks: 3L water (some of it with no added orange squash), Sport drink (it is one that my PT has given me. So it is not the one you buy in the shop full of sugar)

Exercise: PT session and also a walk with a friend (not sure this is really going to be a exercise workout. But it is definitely more exercise than sitting on the sofa watching tennis on tele. :)

I find I miss carbs most after a lengthy workout.
Keep at it :)
