Yesterday was another that started out well and ended badly! I'm getting too good at doing that!
I drank my 2L of water and I ate 6.9 portions of fruit & veg, I went waaaaaaay over calories for the day, probably going to be over for the week as well. I was 987 cals over my maintenance calorie level!! What a waste! I've got three days to gain back 924 calories to bring me to me 0.5lb per week loss. I don't think it's going to happen!
Food Diary Thursday 22nd October:
B: Protein shake at home then Green Monster when I got into work. I made too much Green Monster to fit in my little insulated cup so I mixed the extra with my chocolate protein shake - surprisingly it tasted really good!
200ml ALmond & Hazelnut Rice Dream
and it looked like this:

S: 2 satsumas
L: Same salad as the day before, same dressing, tuna with chili - and far too much garlic!
S: 3 mini flapjacks, 3 mini chocolate crispies, 2 mini jam doughnut balls and because I went out before dinner I was hungry (how??) so I ate a Nakd chocolate orange bar
D: Slow cooker lamb with chickpeas and chunky veg
S: Wispa Gold and some Haribo *hangs head in shame*
Drinks: Milky coffee, double espresso with Pumpkin Spice Syrup, few green teas/fruit teas and 2L water
Not a good day food-wise but I did go and buy a new lens for my camera after work so had loads of fun playing with that! I also bought some sewing supplies so I can hopefully finish making my skirt this weekend - I'm so exciting about all the bits and pieces I can but if I get into making my own clothes!
Pumpkin Spice Syrup:
200g light muscovado sugar
4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Boil and simmer water and sugar until sugar dissovles, add everything else and simmer for a few minutes then strain into a container - beautiful!
