...I've had two really bad days diet and sunbathing wise. We went shopping yesterday and bought 5 packets of icecream if I remember right plus 1 packet of chocolate bars. Yesterday I had 2 chocolate bars, 2 brownie mini icecream sticks and one stracciatella one and 3 sandwich icecreams.. Well at least I cooked; a whole chicken, rice and vegetables baked in the oven. And it was cloudy all day after 11. But at least I did 40 minutes on the exercise bike in the morning...before we went shopping.

Today I was going to start well, but before I even had time to defrost my breakfast ryebread, I had taken out a sandwich icecream.. I suppose I wouldn't even have to say that I had way too much icecrea..and I had the last chocolate bar too (Dave had one) and I also had some jelly with squirty cream. And as proper food, I had yesterday's chicken... And it was cloudy again..

Bad day...

..I even forgot to start listing things down.. I'll try to remember what I've had. In the morning while still at work I had a banana and half a litre of water. Then when I got home I had two Wagon Wheels and a litre of some African tea. Then about one o'clock I had half a pizza. Then we went out and I bought some chocolate in Mercadona and also a tin of nestea. I drank that straight away. When we got home I had 3 bars of chocolate (like mars, just a cheaper version) and 2 ice creams. And half a litre of water. In the evening I had a litre of red tea, trying to get rid of the fat I've had today. And I had an apple too... Oh and when we came home, I also had some strawberries. Do I even have to mention that I've not had any exercise today... I'm going to bed now and I'm hoping to have a better day tomorrow...

Virus on the computer!

Today I was going to do lots of things; clean, go to the fruit shop, make some decos etc, but about mid day the computer screen just suddenly went black and then the computer restarted. I tried to open the virus program but it wouldn't open, the virus had made it unuseful. About six o'clock I finally got the virus out more than less and I installed a newer version of the virus program. It still warns about the virus, but at least it should be removed before it enters the computer. Here's the list:

Working today...

Can't believe it! Twice this has got rid of my text now! Last try. So today I've been at work so I've not really done any sports apart from walking up and down stairs a bit and obviously no sun bathing either.

I didn't reealise yesterday how high my cholesterol actually is. In Spain cholesterol is measured in mg/dl and in Spain in mmol/l. The limit in Finland is 5mmol/l which is 90mg/dl. The limit in Spain is 200mg/dl which would be over 11 mmol/l. Mine was 227 which comes to 12,6mmol/l. So if I was in Finland I'd already been given a medication for my cholesterol for sure...if my calculations are correct of course. And my doctor just said, yes, it's slightly high, just eat less chocolate...ok!

Today's list


07:50 weight 59,8kg
08:10 cereals with milk and chocolate
09:00 0,5 ltr water
12:00 0,5 ltr waer
14:30 Bird's Eye's healthy options cottage pie
14:30 2 glasses of squash
15:00 0,5 ltr water
15:00 pistachio nuts, many
18:30 0,5 ltr water
19:00 4 slices of sesame seed cracker bread with spreaded cheese and cucumber
19:00 sugar free peach juice
21:00 0,5 ltr water
22:45 0% vitalinea strawberry yoghurt

And I decided to add a picture that I just too as well :)

Friday, 18 April 2008

lazy day...

No sports today, no cooking either, I've just been making greeting cards and I also went to see my doctor to get my blood test results. Everything was normal but cholesterol as always. I really have to stop eating chocolate as it was LDL (the bad one) that was high. I wouldn't like to show today's list to my doctor...


10:00 weight 59,7kg
10:30 cereals with milk and chocolate
10:45 1ltr of green tea
13:30 0,5ltr of water
14:00 vegetable puré
14:00 0,5ltr water
17:30 0,5ltr water
17:30 brownie and cream

And that's it, would you believe that!! That brownie really fills you up...maybe it would be healthy's got yoghurt and wall nuts and everything... :D Today was actually quite a sunny day, and warm too, but as I said, I had a lazy day, so I didn't go outside too much. I cleaned the cat litter about mid day so stayed out for about 10 minutes while doing that and then 5ish I walked to the doctor's and back, it's max 5 minutes walk though. Now I'm going to iron my work clothes for tomorrow and then I'm off to bed!

PS. I don't always wear the same shirt...


...I forgot to post yesterday so here's yesterday's list:


07:00 0,3ltr water
07:15 an apple
07:30 fat free natural yoghurt with a diced kiwi
07:40 a big mug of some Japanese tea
08:00 0,3ltr water
11:00 1ltr slimming tea
13:00 sweet and sour chicken and rice
13:30 0,5ltr water
15:00 1ltr some herbal tea
16:00 fat free strawberry vitalinea yoghurt
18:25 a glass of honey rum with sprite
20:30 brownie with cream...
21:30 0,5l water
21:30 cycling in the air and stomach muscle movements

There was no sign of the sun yesterday so obviously I didn't do any sunbathing and the sports part was only the cycling in the air and some stomach muscle movements (can't think of the name in English right now) on the bed while wathing telly as Dave was watching a DVD in the living room where my exercise bike is. Maybe better that way as it's good to do some different type of exercise every now and again, or at least that's what they said on telly yesterday. And then in the afternoon I had put the brownie ingredients in our chef o matic and I couldn't be bothered to cook anything else so...

Along with the text there's some photos I took at work when I was at work last.

Second day

Sorry, there's no photos today, I'm at work and as yesterday's photos were published with the day before's text... Yesterday I actually did a bit of sunbathing :) The builders were there again but I couldn't waste another perfect sunbathing day so I decided to go out to finish a bracelet I was making. I didn't put any suntan lotion on because I knew I wouldn't stay out that long. I was there about 15 minutes and in the evening when I had a shower, I noticed that I should have put some protection because my shoulders were slightly red. Not too red though, they aren't sore or anything. But next time I'll know to put on some protection, even f it's 8 or 10. I normally use SPF 25-30, sometimes even 40 when I sunbathe properly.

Here's yesterday's list:


9:40 weight 60,2kg
10:00 cereals with milk
10:10 1 ltr of diet tea
13:30 the rest of yesterday's spaghetti and a slice of cheese between two slices of white bread
15:30 half an hour in the sun
16:40 strawberry 0% vitalinea yoghurt
16:45 half a ltr of water
19:30 cheese and ham quiche and some salad
19:30 1 ltr of diet tea

21:15 45 minutes on exercise bike
21:15 half a ltr of water
22:35 half a ltr of sleep tea

I will update today's list tonight and then more updates and maybe photos tomorrow :)

Tuesday, 15 April 2008

First day

Well yesterday I didn't add the picture as I promised nor even my first update. The reason is that on Saturday we got a new computer desk and I painted it then. It's a lot bigger than the shelf that we had the computer on before so we had to change all the furnitures around to make it fit in. In the end we ended up changing our front room totally, now it's like we had a living room and then also a dining/computer room. And the well started diet day got a bad end when we found the chocolate monopoly and scrabble that we had bought a couple of years ago for Christmas... And now yesterday's food/drink list:


7:00 1 litre of water with vitamin c and calcium effervescent tablets
10:00 natural yoghurt with kiwi
10:15 1 l infulinea tea

10:40 45min on exercise bike
13:35 chicken ball, egg and macaroni salad + a glass of pineapple juice
15:50 1l of diet tea
17:00 jughurt (Vitalinea 0% strawberry)
while cleaning monopoly chocolate and a glass of wine mixed with sprite
21:00 spagetti bolognese out of a can and half a litre of water

And then about sunbathing; the day was really sunny, no clouds about at all, but there's a building being built just next to us and the builders were just painting on the level of our terrace so I didn't feel like going out in my bikini... Maybe I'll go in a bit. I'll tell you tonight. The photos that you can see were taken this morning.

Katja's tan &diet diary created :)

I'm going to start another goal diary, last year I had my diet diary at (only in Finnish) and now I'm going to start again, this time both in English and Finnish (Finnish version). Last year I had 10 kilos to loose, this time it's only 2-3 kilos and then my goal is just to maintain that weight. The problem is that we'll go to Finland and England in June so I know I will eat just way too many sweets then so once we come back I suppose I should start this diet again. And then another goal for this spring would be to tan myself a bit. I don't want to be as white as all the other Finns, then no one would believe that I'm actually living in Tenerife (except maybe from my funny accent). So in the future I will write here about my eating habits, more than likely I will just list everything I eat, the exercise I get and also about the weather and other excuses why I haven't been able to sunbathe ;) And of course I will also add pictures about the result so I will start tomorrow (as I'm working today) by adding a fresh new picture of myself. 8.6. I should be as brown as a bean and as thin as a stick :D
