On the 4/08/2012 I gave up smoking, So it's almost been a year, and I feel MUCH better for doing it. I gave up using an electronic cigarette and I didn't even have to use that for long. So as it is approaching a year, I figured it is time for another challenge... Shed the chub challenge!!
So today I have started the 5:2 diet. I won't go too much into detail about it as I'm sure most know what it is. It's a diet where for 5 days you eat your Total Daily Expenditure - which you can find here http://thefitgirls.com/tdee-calculator.aspx then for 2 non consecutive days you fast, and are only allowed 500 calories. You can read more about it here - http://thefastdiet.co.uk/
I'm going to use my blog to document what I eat daily and hopefully help someone else that wants to do this diet.
Porridge (made with semi skimmed milk) with a pinch of salt.
Coffee with a splash of semi-skimmed milk.
Unfortunately I didn't take a picture, because I forgot. Whoopsie!
