Power-lifting and “weight loss”

The previous few blogs before my come back on Saturday were about my (failed) attempt at weight loss and power-lifting.

This week my goal is to eat 1500 calories at least 3 times this week. I kind of bugered that up today (I had butter chicken+naan for lunch…) but I reckon I’ll be fine these coming days! I’ve really noticed that water does make me very full, and I’ve started drinking as much as I can to curb feeling so hungry! read more
