Colbie, I make my thai curries like you. Light coconut milk and loads of veg (and chicken). If I am making a huge batch I also add 1 or 2 cups of chicken or veg jelly stock in lieu of doubling the coconut milk. It doesn't affect the taste, just a little thinner broth.
My fave veges to add are zuchini, mini yellow squash, bamboo, coriander roots and kale. Yum. I am eating mine in a coffee cup for portion control at the moment, but may break out a bowl soon lol.
Is anyone else a daily weigher? I know it's bad but I still do it lol. I find it helps me be more accountable whenever I'm tempted to eat junk I think 'I don't wanna see a gain tomorrow!'
Hi Glamazon, yes, I am a daily weigher for sure. I have gotten used to my fluctuating weight during the week eg: my weight usually goes up on Tuesday and Wednesday (sometimes up to a kg), then (hopefully) it goes back down towards the weekend. I always check my weight in the morning just to see where I am and what foods have affected me. x
Glamazon I used to be a daily weight but I started to get really angry at myself as I though I had eaten well and exercised well that day but still put on a kilo! So now I am trying maybe twice a week.
AFM: still keeping up with the walking to work even though I should be building myself an arch due to all the rain we have been having here in Wollongong (NSW). I also had an amazing turkey salad wrap today.
Start weight: 105kgs
Goal for this challenge 99.9kgs lol
Overall goal weight: 75kgs (I was this weight about 3 years ago).
I've had an ok day:
Breakfast: skim hot chocolate(one of my goals is to work on having breakfast EVERY morning).
Lunch: chicken and mash potato (small serve leftover from last night).
Afternoon tea: handful of grainwaves and 3 pieces of chocolate.
Dinner: pork chow mien
I have had a prac student the last 2 days at work so I haven't been doing much! Feeling so lazy and unmotivated! I'm on holidays now for 3 weeks and I will get into this exercise business!

I've had a good day, stuck to my usual daily diet but had a tuna sushi roll for lunch. Tuesday is always such a hard day for me because I go to trivia and everyone gets these delicious bistro meals and huge pieces of cake after! I hate telling people I'm dieting so I just say I already ate, which is true.
At the moment my house is absolute full of chocolate and junk food as I get ready for DD's birthday party, I'm so proud that I haven't given in and ate any of it!
Wow lots of new faces for round 2! Thats so awesome . I look forward to doing this challenge with all of you.
Ok so my weight for the start of this challenge is 67.7 which is up 1kg from last week . I'm hoping its just water weight from my weekend of eating, drinking and socialising.
My aim is to get down to 64kgs by the end of this challenge.
Today and yesterday went well. No exercise yesterday but Mondays are going to be my day off from all exercise as its always a manic day for me so i never get the time. Today I went for an hour walk. Food wise ive been very good.
I seem to have finally found my motivation (after a dismal first round).
My plan food wise is to eat a small bowl of porridge with a small coffee no sugar. For lunch I will have some green soup and dinner will be some sort of lean protein and vegies. On days I am very active i will include small amount of rice for energy.
My exercise plan is to do a full workout 3 days a week and go for an hour walk 3 days a week and have 1 off day.
Hopefully this time around I can stick with it and see a decent lose.
Good luck ladies
Another daily weigher here, too... morning and night! Bad habit
Breakfast- Fatblaster shake
Mid morning- 1 wholemeal muffin. 2 poached eggs
Dinner- Lean Cuisine micro meal (spinach & pumpkin lasagna).
So far, so good
Started the 30 day squat challenge today with 50 squats. I did 5 lots of 10 squats. I'm sure it would be more effective to do 50 squats in a row, with weights, but I took the easy way out.
