2 Good Days!

Things are looking good - I haven't had any weak moments so still feeling very positive!

I re-joined Weight Loss Resources today to keep me on track - it's great to be back and so quick and easy to use!

Quick re-cap of the last two days then...


Breakfast: Bowl of Orange & Cinnamon Oatmeal from Spoff Cereals/Oatmeal of Alford - as you may have guessed I LOVE my oats! I always look at the Oatmeal of Alford oats but for some reason have only just bought my first bag, and I'm glad I did! This was one gorgeous bowl of oats! I mixed them up with some dark chocolate spread - perfect combination!

The dark chocolate spread is the one I picked up from the health food shop in Edinburgh last month, it's beautiful! And dangerous, I've had several spoonfuls straight out the jar :D

Snack: Chocolate Maxitone Sculptress shake (that's a bit of a mouthful!)

Lunch: 2 slices crispy bacon fried in coconut oil in a sandwich with wholemeal bread and real butter - bliss! Followed by a Creme Egg - oops! Was worth every bite!

Snack: One more Sculptress shake

Dinner: Tinned mackerel in tomato sauce for some good and healthy fish oils (shame about the sugary sauce!) and half a kabocha squash roasted with cinnamon - yummy!

Drinks: Water, water, water and water! It was a thirsty day

Exercise: 3k run which I posted about yesterday

Breakfast: Plain old boring oats... not really, I still love them! Made with vanilla rice milk (I think the only nearby shop that sold the almond and hazelnut flavour has topped stocking it!! Disaster!) and then I stirred in some Dark Chocolate Dreams - very dreamy indeed!

Snack: Chocolate Sculptress shake, had this rather late so was starving by the time I got round to it and it didn't sit too well while running during my lunch break!

Lunch: Tinned salmon with some multi-grain Ryvita

Snack: Large pot of blueberries - love these so much, think I may have to buy a blueberry bush type thing for the garden! I also avoided a naughty snack of Baileys fudge this afternoon, it's delicious stuff but it actually wasn't so hard to say no.

Dinner: Fresh ravioli stuffed with spinach and ricotta (shop bought) with sauce made from a tin of chopped tomatoes, a large squeeze of tomato puree, garlic salt, cayenne pepper, basil and oregano, with a couple of slices of chopped bacon and a wee pile of red leicester cheese stirred in - forgot how much I loved this!

Drinks: 1 espresso with a little milk, 3 Twinings fruit teas and water!

Exercise: 22 minute run round the industrial estate my office is in - same distance as yesterdy but 5 minutes quicker - I really need to sort out my pace and slow down, I pushed too hard and felt terrible!

I don't have many photo's as my camera is a rather large DSLR and I'd look a bit weird bringing that out at work to photograph some tinned salmon on my desk.... but here is one I took last night of my little packed lunch bag!

It feels so good to be eating well again, I know it will feel so much better once I've made the full week (of course I wont be stopping there though!)

Only difficulty I can see this week is a work dinner on Friday, but it's a steak house so should be easy to make a sensible choice and I don't want to drink too much early as I'll have a busy weekend - my dad is visiting with my little sister! I'm so excited! Shame the whole family can't make it but will be great to see the two of them!

Right, I'm off to pay a bill, do some ironing and sort out my food for tomorrow - rock 'n' roll.


  1. Yay, a good 2 days crappy, well done mate. I love your brown bag - it's an actual bag, how cool!

    Your food looks fab and your orange & cinnamon porridge sounds lush.

    I've been so tempted to use my almond & dark chocolate spread in my porridge but I fear I may like it too much and start eating oats for breakfast, lunch & tea :D

  2. you're shaming into being good Stella!
