Zero Noodles

So 24 packs of these arrived at my door today.  


A single 200g portion of Zero Noodles contains just eight calories.

I am late coming to the noodle trend but I wanted to leave it a while and see what other people were saying about them. They work apparently just taste of nothing annd you have to get used to the rubbery texture. I am going to cook them tonight with some marinated chicken and vegetables. 

Zero Noodles have a similar calorie count to celery so could lead to a reduction in my daily calorie intake without making me feel hungry all the time. The noodles contain 96 per cent water and less than 4 per cent glucomannan fibre. So it’s surprising they fill you up...

Hello Again Skinnies

Hey skinny ladies,

I needed to take time out to fix my mind, its fixed (kind of). Long story short I got a little too obsessed, a little too ill and I needed to climb out of the rabbit hole so my husband would stop worrying about me. After gaining my sanity back oh and a few bastard pounds I am going to lose weight again, the right way this time though. 

I will not be posting anything new on supersize v superskinny, I am not allowed to watch that show any longer =/ I am 20 bloody 7! (but yeah I know its for the best). 

I will no longer be posting anymore reverse thinspo, not because of the backlash I received for it but because its a massive trigger for me, as I sometimes believed I was that big. But if people want to be and are happy with being big then let them *shrugs*

Anyway I am a brides maid in 5 months (yuck cadburys purple coloured dress... yay great...) so the plan is to lose half a stone for then. Reasonable, not too noticeable and definitely do able!

Plan of attack!

Keep working out. I have a personal trainer, young fit thing called Leo. He's killing me! I hate him! I ache for days afterwards.

Eat right! I still count calories (number freak) it was one of the many things they just couldn't stop me from doing although I have managed to up the amount of calories I eat.

Fruit is my friend. I need to eat more of it (not a fan) instead of low calorie cardboard. 

My fruity snack at the moment - Blend four big ice cubes, a tin of peaches, a tin of pineapple (only the stuff in natural juices) and 200 mls of orange juice. You got yourself four servings of a lovely thick drink at 90 cals a pop. Takes me forever to drink too and fills me up!

Your Food Diary

I am guessing we all have an online food diary but I love a diary I can hold and scribble down in. I find it's more personal than my online one, it goes everywhere with me and is a constant reminder of my goals for that day. 

This is my 2014 food diary -

Does anyone else have a food diary like this? Would love to see what yours looks like (nosey) blog a picture or email me :) x

Milly Moon, the front of this book reminds me of you and your art x

LIKENESS

LIKENESS is a personal meditation on eating disorders created by Rodrigo Prieto and his daughter. The short film stars Elle Fanning as a girl struggling with self-perception, and challenges us to consider the role of society in presenting an idealized image of the female body.

Avoiding Too Many Cals On A Friday

I am going to use a meal plan from the 5:2 diet today. 

Reminder of the 5:2 diet - The 5:2 diet is all about sticking to a healthy 2000 calories for five days and fasting on no more than 500 calories for two days.

Eating 2000 calories!? Yeah that's not happening... but I do love the 500 calorie day plans which get me through the weekend when the family want a take away or expect me to join them in a snack with our afternoon cup of tea. 


Breakfast: Omelette. Use 3 egg whites, 80g mushrooms and 80g spinach. Calories so far: 60.

Lunch:  Sainsbury’s tabbouleh salad 147 cals 


Snack: 50g of blueberries in the afternoon 28 cals. Calories so far: 235.

Dinner: This sizzling chicken and cashew stir-fry 257 cals beats a crazy high cal takeaway. 

Total intake for whole day: 492 calories.
And with my afternoon workout my low calorie day is complete!

Lets Begin... Again!

A very late but very happy new year to you all! 


"Were the hell have you been!?" I know, I know sorry about the absence but I was having therapy.


I no longer purge*High 5* 

The urge is still there but I am controlling it. I had to write countless essays on my history with food, obsessions, aspirations etc etc. I might chuck a few up here sometime. 

I am not yet therapy free, I see F fortnightly now instead of weekly, so that must be a good thing? 

Therapy made me I gain pounds =/ going from my OK 126lbs to 138lbs NOT THE 30's! *grumbles* But since last Friday I have managed to get down to 134lbs by calorie controlling and working out. 

You can see my meal plans for the week on Myfitnesspal I must warn you its a very low calorie week. But I lost 4 lbs so I cant complain. 

Going to have a clean up of this messy blog now ooo and to catch up with all my blogging ladies! Missed you! Please don't email me asking for advise on how to purge I just can't deal with that anymore.
