Wed 31st July 2013
Break – 6.15am: 20g oat bran, 13g tableS chia, 1 x pink lady apple, grated. Pinch of cinnamon
Lunch- 12.50pm: 1 x small ham & swiss cheese wrap, 1 x small slice BBQ chicken pizza. 3 strawberries. 1 x Chobani 0% fat apple & cinnamon yogurt
Pre yoga: slice gluten/wheat free pumpkin bread toats with peanut butter
Post yoga: coconut water. 5 x dried dates, 1 dried apricot.
Dinner- 10.30pm: small portion leftover polenta lamb stew, 1.5 homemade beef burgers (all meat n onion/chilli, no breadcrumb fillers)
Plans changed slightly at lunchtime when I saw the wraps. There was only one filling choice, and they were more like ¼ slices than ½ slices, so I had one of those, and one of the smaller slices of pizza I could find. Now, be proud of me, I didn’t eat any of the other pizza (there were like, 5 different one!), nor the chicken wings, nor the home made prawn crackers, nor the cookies (which I LOVE). So although I said I wasn’t going to have pizza, I think I actually did quite well today. And I ate it slowly and it felt filling- despite my eyes wanted to eat more my stomach was satisfied. The yog was for something sweet after, to stop me caving in to a cookie. Oh, and guess what, one of my bosses noticed I wasn’t eating v much and when I said I was trying to behave she said “but you look like you’ve lost loads of weight recently!” Well, I haven’t lost v much, but it’s nice to know I look a bit slimmer to peeps, that perked me right up! 😀
10.15pm just prepared some salad for tomorrow, and it’s massive looking, can’t wait to eat it, will be all fresh and delicious! Wow, I must have changed a bit, cos usually salads do nothing for me. Love veg, but generally find salads a bit rubbish, but I’ve started to really enjoy them! Haha, might be that I know cos I can eat a lot volume wise without consuming many calories, that is pretty cool.
Dinner is heating up in the oven (microwave is sparking…. decided it’s prob not a good idea to use it….) and burgers shallow frying with a dash of avocado oil- looking forward to dinner a lot!
