Happy Friday!

16 Apr

Yesterday was simultaniously busy and lazy. I got up at 11. I had plannd on doing a workout on the wii, David has one and we spent time the night before entering all my details and making up an avatar type thing. I wasn’t impressed- she had a round face. Anyway I gave it a miss due to tiredness. I also missed a supermarket trip before heading home. No more grape nuts, fancy nut butters or yoghurts for me.

I stopped for lunch here:

rest and be thankful A82 Argyll

It’s a little carpark off of a stretch of road called ‘The rest and be thankful’. My car ‘Bug’ enjoyed the view.

grey new beetle

He looks almost clean from a distance.

I stole theseΒ from David’s cupboard, they were the first proper crisps I’ve had in a couple of months. They were good but didn’t make me want to go buy a multi-pack πŸ™‚

Once I got home I did a few things round the flat- washing on etc. then made some food. I had brough some chicken and bacon ravioli home in my cool bag so made that with some dolmio stir-in sauce.

I didn’t like it (I kept coming across little hard bits) so only ate a little bit then had a bowl of Special K with soya milk.

I weighed in this morning at 11st6.6, the lightest I’ve been since I was a teenager. It doesn’t make much sense how I could have lost so much (well only 2 and a half pounds) in 2 weeks. This won’t seem a lot to the seriously healthy weight-loss people but my losses have been a lot slower than this. Maybe it was because I was blogging most of my food. Also, while I was away I snacked less and definitely ate less nut butter and nuts in gereral. I ate less fruit too. I had no serious work-outs but I did do a lot of walking. I had 3 mocha frapps (I had totally planned on only having 1!) which are supposed to have about 260 calsΒ and 6g of protein.

Breakfast/Brunch this morning was porridge of course. Since I’m running low on grape nuts I topped it with cheerios.

Today shall involve some cleaning and some shopping and hopefully a wee bit of exercise!

    Cool car, my favourite brand and type πŸ˜‰ and what a VIEW! phew!

    I’ve tried to work with the WII but I found it offesive when the program told me that I have the activity level of a 35 year old (hey, I was 25 at that time!) πŸ˜€ ok, it WAS over a year ago and I’ve got healthier and have done more sports since but it still hurts πŸ˜€

      Haha! i think it does that to shock you into using it more often! Don’t believe a word of it πŸ™‚

    Well done on that loss! I think that 2 and a half pounds over two weeks is very good. A slower steady loss is better and more easier to sustain than a huge loss anyway. That view is stunning and I’m also very jealous, i love your car. I’m stuck with a little old ford ka thats costing me a fortune!

      Yeah I love my car too, there have been a couple of times in the last year or so when I have thought I might have to sell it but so far so good. It was surprisingly reasonable to buy, it’s a 2002 but doesn’t look it!

    Well done on your loss πŸ™‚ And am so jealous of the view you have during your lunch! I am here facing all the cars racing by on a busy road!!

    Love your car too!! Very shiny πŸ™‚

      I’ve no idea why it’s shiny- it hasn’t been washed since last summer. Must be all the Scottish rain!

    What a pretty lunch spot! I haven’t had sushi for so long, I want to go make some now! I love veggie sushi πŸ™‚

    • thirtyandhealthy April 16, 2010 at 8:09 pm #

      Ooh you make it? Well if you do please feel free to share a wee demo as I wouldn’t have the first clue!

    I wouldn’t mind stopping there for lunch – it looks so peaceful and pretty!

    Congratulations on your weight loss! I wish there was a science to it, because like you I often find that I lose more weight when I’m not expecting it and then plateau when I feel like I’ve made lots of effort… I’m really pleased for you though – it sounds like you are doing so well πŸ™‚

      Aw thanks hon! it is wierd how effort doesn’t seem to equal results but at least we know we are doing something right!

    Congrats on your weightloss. It’s weird how our bodies work. We often lose weight when we least try! I hope you had a good trip to glasgow, loving that view – beautiful!
