Food Diary Monday - Wednesday

Been neglecting my blog a bit ever since I got back from TITP - I'm so tired in the evenings that I just don't have anything interesting to say! I'm bored at work so thought I'd post a quick catch up!


Breakfast: 1 scoop whey with 100ml skimmed milk and water. 150g 0% Greek yogurt with 100g frozen raspberries and 60g frozen blueberries - I'm not a big fan of the frozen blueberries, the texture is really weird and kind of sticks in my teeth. I was trying to save money by buying fromzen but I think I'll stick to fresh for the blueberries. Raspberries are great though!
Snack: 1 babybel light and a satsuma
Lunch: Thai Chicken soup - my new favourite!
Snack: Carrot sticks with salsa and a Nakd bar
Dinner: All we seem to have in this week is bacon and eggs so I had 2 of each plus a slive of buttered bread for the bacon - this was heaven!
Snack: 2 scoops whey with water, 1tsp nut butter, chocolate protein shake ice lolly, 1 slice toast with butter and Marmite - once I eat bread I can't stop myself!

Drinks: Tea, coffee, diet red bull, water

Breakfast: 1 scoop whey with 100ml skimmed milk and water. 20g oats with 150ml skimmed milk and here's the embarrassing bit - I added half a jar of Mango Surprise Cow & Gate baby food - the pear puree I bought before was so lovely in the porridge but I realiesed it's just baby food in grown up packaging at a higher price so thought I'd give it a go - lovely stuff! Don't worry, I'm not about to go all Jennifer Anniston and start living off baby food!
Snack: 1 babybel light and a satsuma
Lunch: Thai Chicken soup
Snack: 0% Greek yogurt with mixed berries and a Nakd bar
Pre-Workout 1 scoop whey with 100ml skimmed milk and water
Post-Workout 1 scoop whey with water and half a Berry cheeky Nakd bar
Dinner: Higgidy Moroccan Veg and Feta pie and a teaspoon of peanut butter while I waited as I was starving!
Snack: Other half of the Nakd bar, protein cookie thing - tried baking with protein again but I just don't like the stuff cooked! They are ok cut in half with a little honey though. 1 slice toast with butter and Marmite - really can't stop myself!

Drinks: Coffee, water

Exercise: Full body weights then 20 mins intervals on the treadmill, plus half hour walk each way to/from the gym - because I walk in my gym stuff I make sure I'm walking fast enought to get hot and sweaty so decided not to bother with my usual 5 min warm up on the bike. Don't think I'll do that again as I struggled to get my HR up as high as normal and the whole thing just didn't feel 'right'

Spooky - my carbs/protein/fat ration is identical to yesterdays with different foods and completely unintentional!


Breakfast: 1 scoop whey with 100ml skimmed milk and water. 0% Greek yogurt with frozen raspberries and blueberries, 10g flaxseed (last of the pack thank god! Like the taste, hate the texture it's far too finely ground) and 1tsp honey
Snack: 1 babybel light and a satsuma
Lunch: Nakd bar and a small hot chocolate - I've been getting weird pains in my chest so had to leave work at 11.30am to go to the doctor - they don't let you book appointments in advance so it was now or never! Got back to work at 1.30pm an dstraight into a 1 hour meeting so no time for my chicken soup :(
Snack: Carrot sticks with salsa followed by some naughty-ness - I was really craving a Mars Bar and as I wondered past the reduced trolly in Sainsburys I clocked a cheap Slim fast version of a mars bar and a nutri-grain choc chip cookie so ate those on the way home.
Dinner: Carbonara
Snack: Apple cable sweetie thingy that I pinched from my boyfriend

Drinks: Coffee, water, energy drink - these are like bread, I get hooked on them.

Wow! What a crappy day that turned out to be!!

Today is going a bit better but I don't know what I'm having for dinner, I'm getting my hair cut right when I want to be eating, I have no extra snacks with me and I'm meeting a friend for coffee after the hairdresser - I also couldn't get an appointment at a time thet meant I could go to the gym first and I don't want to go after as it will be the first time my hair has actually looked good since last September!


  1. Yay, an update! I've missed reading your blog.

    The baby food puree in porridge is genius! I love it :D

    What is higgidy morrocan veg & feta pie? Can you post the recipe? It sounds very interesting!

    Don't forget to post pics of your beautiful hair

    Yay, a reader! I'm glad you missed me, really must get my finger out and post more often!

    Relieved you don't find the baby food odd - I can't wait to try more flavours!

    Higgidy is the brand - they sell them in Sainsburys and they are lovely! They don't have loads of pastry and are just the right size - packed with veg too!

  3. Please do, I love getting my blog fix last thing at night after updating my own :D

    I will keep an eye out for the Higgidy brand it sounds lovely.
