Challenge 1 Day 2

Day 2 has gone well! I am only 25 calories over, went to an hour long spin class, drank 3L water and ate 7.4 portions of fruit & veg! I still haven't weighed in though, I keep forgetting so I will just leave it until the weekend.

Lunch wasn't ideal this week but hasn't interfered with challenge 1 so I'm not going to get too upset over it! It was someones birthday so he treated us to lunch in the canteen. I didn't like the sound of the soups so I went for fajita's and a pile of veg, it was lovely but I make better fajita's!

Have a look at JAG and Jildo's blogs for their challenge posts - both girls are doing well and staying motivated - they are great for my motivation!

Quick re-cap of yesterdays food:

B: I juiced an orange, a grapefruit and some frozen raspberries, juiced the night before so they had melted in by morning - yummy but too bitter!

L: Huge pack of sushi

S: Greek yogurt with blueberries and half a scoop of cookies & cream whey and a Cashew Cookie Nakd bar

D: We were kind of scraping the bottom of the barrel with this one, please forgive me! Macaroni with bacon, Philidelphia Light, basil, garlic salt & black pepper - it was late, we were just back from the gym, starving and the shop we popped into on the way home didn't have linguine or any kind of hard cheese for the carbonara we had planned!

Drinks: 2 grean teas, 1 fruit tea, 1 coffee and water

Exercise: 10 mins intervals on the cross trainer, 3 sets of 8-12 reps on the leg press, thigh extension, leg curl, pull down, chest press, seated row and shoulder press, I finished off with 10 mins intervals on the tredmill.

Todays food:

B: A nuts, seeds and raisins Dorset cereal with skimmed milk - I bought a mini selection pack of these after falling in love with a sample of the mango and coconut one (I think!) but I've been really disappointed with 2 of the 3 I've tried so far, unless I can find a big box of the coconut sample I wont be bothering with these again.

S: 1 scoop of chocolate whey with almond & hazelnut rice milk and 2 satsumas

L: Work canteen fajita's and veg - cauliflower or brussel sprouts were all they had on offer, I found fajita with cauliflower a rather bizarre combo!

S: Chili chocolate Larabar - I frigging love these!! Why are they so hard to get hold of in the UK?? Not fair :( so I made myself feel better by eating greek yogurt with blueberries and whey - I really need a new afternoon snack! Oh, I  wasn't going to admit this because of how awful it turned out! I was really in the mood for a Green Monster but I didn't have any of the indregients. I'm not sure what was going on in my head when I decided to belnd up some rocket with half a lemon and a small banana.... it was bloody awful. Don't ever try it.


D: Higgidy mushroom and spinach pie

S: Frozen banana and some frozen blueberries put through the juicer to make "ice cream" - Oh. My. God. This is amazing! Whoever discovered this is a genius!! I can't believe I waited so long to try it! You don't need to use a juicer for it though - see Edna's post on Before & Forever to see how she made hers.

Drinks: 1 cofffe, 1 double espresso, 3 green teas, 2 fruit teas, water

Exercise: 1 hour spin class - after class I came home, stuck the Higgidy pie in the oven a prepared my breakfast, lunch and snacks for tomorrow while it cooked - I cannot wait to eat it all, I'm pathetically excited!!

And just because I can, here is a picture of my Jeff attempting to sleep in an awkward space that is far too small for him

    I know! I'm so embarrassed that I did it, there is no excuse!

    Thank you! I really needed to get my butt in gear! You are doing really well too - most people just wouldn't bother at all with something as big as a shiny new job! You'll settle into your routine soon enough!

  3. Your food is lush apart from the blended rocket you mad cah!

    My food has been dire today, I really need to snap out of this gloom!
