Day 3

5 Aug

Day 3…

I’ve been keeping track of my food on fitday thanks to the recommendation of W.Mama.  It’s been great to keep track of my carb intake and vitamins more so than my calories, like I’ve done for so long in my life.  Yesterday Hubby and I got to go to Edinburgh for the Military Tattoo.  It was amazing and we had amazing food!

Gluten free pizza and brownies! woo!

Ok so my carb intake was a bit higher yesterday than it should be but you always need a bit of fun right? lol


Day 2

Day 2…

Ahhh the dreaded day 2. Day 1, you’re all upbeat and in the grove then comes day 2 and you wonder what the hell you got yourself into. You can go one of two ways usually. Either suck it all up and keep with the program or go the complete opposite. I might have done the latter.

I had a banana for breakfast leaving me really hungry when I had to go to the doctors. So I ended up having hospital food in the form of a hamburger (albeit no bun!) and some fries. Along with a whole bottle of coke and then later on a cup of coffee.

For lunch I met my baby girl and my mother in law. I could have had whatever I wanted really. But I crazily didn’t feel well and so only went for the salad with turkey and lemon dressing. Weird how your body craves the healthy after a wee bit of purging you know?

For dinner I still wasn’t in the mood to eat much so instead of eating the beef with mushrooms and brocoli that I had prepared for the family I had rice cakes with almond butter and strawberry jam, with a banana and some chocolate cookies. *smack forhead*

Wellness challenge day 1

2 Aug

Wellness challenge day 1:

Woke up around 10am this morning. It’s been lovely over this past week because I’ve had to Mother in Law to stay. Most people would not think that was a good thing, I am luckily the opposite. Seeing as she’s a morning person it means I get a good sleep in while she gets up with my 5 month old daughter Phoebe.

Skipped breakfast this morning and had a chicken and bacon salad. The chicken was left over from a whole chicken we had yesterday and then I fried up some bacon. Managed to have a few glasses of water with it as well. The down side is I had it with ranch dressing and also had some left over fries from a take-a-way earlier in the week.

Got hungry around 5pm so stopped in asda to have a baked potato with tuna mayo on top. The downside is I had a few glasses of coke with it, and a few bits of my mother in law’s cheese cake.

For dinner we had ham steaks with pineapple, green beans and potatoes. I thought it was a healthy meal, and by all means it is, but I really, really need to cut the starch.
