Had a much better day and didn't get so hungry because I had a bigger breakfast. Food was going really well until dinner when hubby cooked two breast pieces of chicken on the bone. I ate all of my piece before I realised I hadn't weighed it. I weighed the second one (which was larger than mine) and I discovered that it was 200g of chicken which meant I had eaten probably 175g. Oh no - too much protein again. I should have only eaten half of it and had more rice.

Oh well ... can't fix it now!

Note to gentlemen using my gym:

1. Please don't leave 120kg on the leg press machine. It takes me 6 trips to remove the 20kg plates - it might be great for your H U G E thighs but that's almost twice my body weight.

2. Please don't make those weird grunting noises from the first rep. I can forgive you when you get to the last few reps of the set, god knows I feel like doing it myself by then, but on every rep it just seems superfluous and gross.

3. If you are checking the change room to make sure everyone has left at the end of the day, please knock before you come in. Luckily I am shameless and wasn't in any real state of undress, but it is just good manners to at least alert me to the fact I need to suck my stomach in before you come bounding through the door!


  1. Hi Katie,

    Great idea with the daily diary. Look forward to following it.
