I can't believe it is like six days into February and I haven't posted yet... to be honest I could come up with a million reasons why but the biggest truth is that I have just been lazy. Any of you who follow me on Twitter or Instagram will know that on Monday, I started a new job. So I have gone from doing part-time hours (very sparse part time hours) to doing a full 9-5.30 job. So in the run up from last week I have been trying to do as much possible before I started work... by as much possible I mean anything to defer me from going to the gym. Though to be honest I know I have only been working since Monday but it is baffling me how anybody who works full time fits in the gym... very "fat girl" of me to think that. I need to stop with this "lazy girl" attitude.
Food: The beginning of the week started off really good and the weight began to melt (or at least I felt a lot less bloated) but then I became busy and connivence took over. I mean don't get me wrong I have started to become very self conscious of the amount of calories that I am having and I need to make time to sit down and plan my food for the week, especially my lunches and snacks. That is one good thing about working full time is that you can plan you weeks meals, when I was part time I didn't know what I was doing from one day to the next let alone what I was going to eat. Though I am proud that I am under my weekly target... I just need to get the balance between calorie counting and exercising right!
Calorie Target - 1500 per day/ 10,500 for the week.
Calorie Intake - 10, 494 for the week - which means I was only 6 calories under my weekly... However I have tried really hard to maintain my 1500 a day which I think is why I have only lost a pound.
Fitness: I wish I wasn't so lazy but I am... though I keep blaming in on the fact that I have no routine to my life and now I have a routine... I'm still not doing much about it. Though I guess this week is the testers of my routine and most normal activities ie blogging have been out the window.
Exercising Target - 3x 1 hour exercise per week
Actual Exercising - None. Though I have been walking A LOT more... I have about a 10minute walk into and out of work. Then I take the stairs (4 flights... impressing) haha but that kills me if I am honest.
Mood: If I am totally honest, my "diet" has been the last thing on my mind this week... I have been worrying about my job and then whilst at work been worrying about the actual work I am doing. However, I have become more aware that I am now sitting down all day (typical office job) apart from printer/toilet/drinks trips. I have also noticed that I like to pick in the afternoons and realised how hard it is to dodge the chocolate and biscuit givers of the office. I know I am only 3 days in but I really want to find myself a routine which includes exercise and vitamin taking.... lots of it.

So if any one works full time or has a super busy life can you give me a few tips... though they have to be do-able!
