Challenge 1 Day 3

Wow, this is much harder than I thought it would be! But compared to the last few weeks I'm doing a great job of sticking with healthy eating and exercising!

Yesterday I did manage to stay within my calories, 4 to spare! I managed 2.1L of water but only 4.3 portions of F&V. No exercise, but I'm still on track to meet the 3 times a week challenge. Food was good during the day but I lost it in the evening, I got home and felt really sick and miserable, all I could stomach was Marmite sandwiches!

I think the weather is getting me down, it rained all day yesterday, was very dark when I left home in the morning, dull and grey all day and dark when I left work, I felt like I hadn't seen any actual daylight for ages! Then I started getting all grumpy and miserable about our lack of summer, and having not been on holiday this year. I'm definitely going to save up for a cheapo last minute sunny break at Easter, I don't care if it's some all inclusive place, I just want to feel some sun on my skin!!

Food Diary Wednesday 21st October:

B: Protein shake with water then 3 juiced apples and some frozen blueberries put through the juicer

L: Salad with grated courgette, spring onion, orange pepper, rocket, Food Doctor Salad Boost nuts, seeds and herb mix, jalapeƱos, tuna in lemon and pepper and my first ever home made salad dressing!

1tsp balsamic vinegar
4tsps extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp coarse grain mustard
Teeny tiny pinch of sugar and salt
Fresh ground black pepper

All shook up in a wee container, should last me the week. I love it! Can't believe how simple it and tasty it is, why have I not made this before??

S: Greek yogurt, blueberries, cookies & cream whey and flaxseed

D: I don't want to talk about dinner!! Many marmite sandwiches were consumed and a small pack of rice cakes!

S: Peanut butter cup

Drinks: milky coffee, green teas and fruit teas, water

Mustget some pictures in my next post, this looks really dull!


  1. The rain is so blah :(

    That salad dressing sounds yummy, it's nice to make your own because you can adjust it your own taste. I like to make mine very acidic. My poor teeth :(

  2. Rain seems to have stopped today, but it's still dark :( and cold and windy. I need to move to another country asap!

    I am totally converted to making my own dressings - I like that you can make any adjustments you like and make as much or as little as you want, you dont need to get through a whole big bottle of the same stuff!
