Day 1

7.30am - 3 eggs fried in butter - 1.5g
9.55am - small salad which consisted of lettuce, cucumber and ham - approx 2.8g
12noon - salami (I bought 90g and ate it over the course of the day) - 3.2g
A/A - mortadella with peppercorns - 3.2g
1.30pm - BBQ chicken minus the stuffing - 0.1g
6pm 200g mixed nuts - 16g
8pm - 3 eggs fried in butter - 1.5g

That gives a total of 28.3g carbs for the whole day.

This is a typical day for me if I'm totally unprepared.

I did not get to Body Pump today like I'd hoped as I forgot all about my 5pm to have my eyebrows and lashes tended to. It's also too hot and I probably wouldn't have gone anyway. I hate this weather sometimes.

Having said that, I was tired mentally but had lots of physical energy so I spent a good portion of today walking everywhere at work and then through the shopping centre after work. In all, I feel good. Looking forward to tomorrow :)

Weighing in... I never weigh in. I didn't even know we had scales in the bathroom - but we do! I weighed in three times and got the readings 88.8kg, 87.1kg and 86.5kg. Then I got 86.5kg the following three times but I don't think that can be right considering my eating lately. So the middle is 87.4kg so I'll go with that.

Not too bad for a disorderly Day 1!

Looking forward to seeing how you've been going too. I think this is a great challenge and I can't wait to make it part of my routine and really get into the swing of things!


  1. You kept the carbs low,keep it up!

  2. Nicely done, Erika!

    I'm glad you're posting and I'll be back to see what you're up to!
