Good second day today. Food as follows:
B: black coffee with coconut oil
L: x3 garlic chicken thighs and a diet coke
D: x2 beef burgers with a yellow bell pepper and a red chilli
S: x1 peppermint tea
Carbs - 16g
A whole chilli may have been overkill for dinner. My mouth was on FIRE!
Did well with my water and have avoided any headaches so far. A few energy dips throughout the day but nothing to be too worried about.
Update on my New Year Goals:
- Get a new job in the field I REALLY want to be in - Nope :(

Weight has bounced up to 178. I was eating a lot of processed stuff, and a lot of salt, so hopefully that will come down with eating clean in the next few days.

Had a really odd food day today. I had breakfast as normal with coconut oil and then I had a half roast chicken for lunch! So much chicken.... So am writing this now and am not hungry at all. So dinner will probably be a non event. I might have a few bits of cheese later and will just chalk it up to as a very low carb day.
Weight today was 177lbs.
P.S Lush's Oatifix mask is absolutely incredible and has saved my skin from looking dull and flaky this winter. When it is on, however, it does make me look like the Thing from the Fantastic Four.

Wednesday's Weight - 179lbs
Today's Weight - 177lbs
I was STARVING yesterday. My menu consisted of:
B: Coffee with coconut oil and 2 boiled eggs
L: 3 chicken thighs with garlic
D: Fillet of cod and green beans
S: Low calorie hot chocolate.
B: Coffee with coconut oil
L: Chicken thigh
D: Chicken stir fry with peppers and spinach and soy sauce.
I found Wednesday a bit tricky. I didn't sleep well the night before, so I think some of my cravings/feeling hungry was linked to my tiredness. My housemate waved a yum yum doughnut thing in my face and I NEARLY caved but didn't. Thankfully. Pleased to see 177 on the scale this morning. Everything still moving in the right direction.
My other NY's resolutions are going well too. Only 7 more episodes of The Sopranos left (not sure I'll be able to cope when it is over). My snoozing has been better (still not great) and I've been eating breakfast every day and taking my vitamins. Still forgot my friend's birthday though, so I haven't changed that much :-S

B: Two coffees with coconut oil
L: 2 boiled eggs
D: Chicken breast stir fried with bell peppers, fajita spices, chilli flakes and cheese.
S: Low calorie mint hot chocolate (5g carbs)
I weighed in today at 178lbs. Absolutely ecstatic to be below both 13 stone and 180 lbs. I don't want to see either of those numbers EVER again.
My dinner was a bit boring, I meant to grab some salsa on the way home from work, but it still hit the spot.
I feel in the swing of things now. Haven't felt like eating off plan yet. I've got a night out planned on Saturday and my dress a couple of weeks ago fit, but was horrifically tight and looked awful. I tried it on today and it looks great. People dismiss early losses as water weight, but if it means I fit in my clothes better, who cares? It all counts!
