Nearly half way through my food diary journey. Even though I normally make some sort of note of what I’m eating, I haven’t been this honest since my Weight Watchers days. It’s definitely giving me more focus, even when I’m not eating/drinking the best I can. I would recommend it to anyone wondering why the scales or inches aren’t moving quite as you expect. But for it to be effective, you have to write down everything that passes your mouth - no exceptions.
BREAKFAST 7.45am: Sun Warrier Protein Chocolate shake with water and rice milk.
COFFEE 9.30am: Starbucks tall iced white Americano
LUNCH 1pm: Mori small salmon sushi box (3 x salmon/avo, 3 x salmon nigiri). Seaweed salad. Diet coke.
EXERCISE 5.30pm: barrecardio
DINNER 7.30pm: At my mumbo’s house… had about 10 anchovy stuffed olives (loves these ones you get in a can from Waitrose… not in oil), then some rotisserie chicken with roasted vegetables mixed with rocket, feta and balsamic vinegar. Two large glasses of rose wine (aka 2/3 bottle). I then got home and Frank had made two ridiculously tempting baked goods: rhubarb crumble cake and some peanut thing - so I tried a bit of each but literally hardly anything…
BREAKFAST 7.40am: One scrambled egg mixed with some extra egg white and half a small avocado.
COFFEE 10.45am: Starbucks tall iced white Americano
LUNCH 1.30pm: Pret A Manger Italian Chicken Salad (I LOVE THIS SALAD), diet coke.
EXERCISE 6.30pm: barrecore
DINNER 8.15pm: It was such a nice day today that post barrecore I found Frank sitting outside the pub enjoying the sun - I joined him for a medium rose spritzer. When we got home, I had one more medium glass of Sancerre rose. Food wise, I had tuna and salmon sashimi and a seaweed salad post barrecore and a small tomato and blue cheese salad and a little bit of chicken noodle soup when I got home. Very odd combination but everything was quite small and just what I fancied… could have done without the soup though… #dulynoted
Weening myself off wine after last week is proving more difficult than expected…
