Sorry for the absence, it's been a busy week! Again! And I just don't feel like doing anything when it's so cold! So I'm going to try and do some boring this is what I ate posts just to get me posting - I'll try and add something interesting too but I'm not making any promises!
Food last week was still no good and I only went to the gym once, but I'm feeling a lot more motivated this week. Not stressing about they gym, one thing at a time and all... want to get the healthy eating sorted as a priority.
I have decided that I want to try the cheat meal thing out once a week, either a Friday or Saturday, or one other night if it's a special occassion - but only one a week! And I can have pudding too if I manage to avoid crisps and chocolate bars the rest of the week.
Food for today:
Breakfast: Oats cooked with skimmed milk and a medium banana, topped with 1.5 tsps hazelnut butter - first time I've had nut butter on porridge as it's never appealed to me, I'm definitely converted, it was lovely! I also had a berocca for a vitamin boost.
Lunch: Omelette with 2 eggs, skimmed milk, pastrami and goats cheese - so good!! Even though it was made in the microwave! I can't believe it's taken so long for me to think to have eggs at work, OK so the microwave isn't ideal but still makes tasty scrambled eggs and omelette and helps add a bit of variety to my breakfasts and lunches. I'm in an egg phase, I've been eating loads of omelette at home (my boyfriend makes the best omelette - he doesn't use the microwave!) I also learned how to fry an egg and I must say I'm very good at it! I think I've only tried to make fried egg once or twice before but I get 'the fear' about ruining it so never bother.
Doesn't it look so gross!?? I promise it was fantastic!
Snack: Full Fat! Greek yogurt with loads of blueberries
Dinner: Bit of a random one - roast parsnips and 3 slices of bacon - it's just what I fancied!
Drinks: Several espresso's, 2 teas, one green tea which made feel like I was going to throw up so think I'll be avoiding these for a while! Two peppermint teas - to help settle my stomach after the horrible green tea incident! And a milky coffee with some gingerbread syrup when I got home from work. I've got into a habit of coming home and eating, regardless of being hungry, so I've started making myself a milky coffee instead as it keeps me busy for a few mins and gives my stomach something to do.
Hopefully I'll manage to avoid snacking this evening but I may just give in to a low calorie hot chocolate.
