I woke up this morning and weighed myself! Day 2 ?????? Yeah, like I’ve lost 3lbs already. Or perhaps I have emptied my bladder etc – but I’ve decided I HAVE LOST 3 lbs and so am motivated to continue.
Breakfast was yesterday’s recipe Berry Breakfast.
Work was busy and after a meeting when I finished work (and not being paid – public service worker) I went home and had to feed myself quickly before I raided the fridge. Cottage cheese sandwich and beetroot. I love both cottage cheese and beetroot so, for me, it was like eating junk food. I craved beetroot when I was pregnant 25 and 21 years ago and I still love it. So I was happy and it was healthy.
Dinner was going to be totally clean food but time took over and needs must. So I had vegetarian sausages with onions, potato wedges and mushy peas. Filling and yummy and vegetarian. I’ve been doing this for 2 whole days and haven’t mentioned I’m vegetarian yet! I started eating this and realised I hadn’t taken a photo, so note one sausage nearly eaten. I’d fail badly on Instagram with food pictures.
As for exercise I haven’t got round to that yet. However I work in a Primary school and the kids suck out all my energy by the time I’ve finished work. But tomorrow is another day. I am way below my calorie intake which I should be pleased about but I do know “starvation” isn’t the answer. My macro’s are okay but I have heard that on a diet you can under eat and in the long run that isn’t healthy. Will try harder tomorrow for a more balanced diet.
I will say that using MyFitnessPal is amazing and without it I would panic, fail and promise myself I will try again soon and just give in!
