Preparation for tomorrow

12 Feb

okay after yesterdays post I have decided that I have to get a hold on things. I started this blog at the end of December  in that time I have accomplished a few good things; I eat very little sugar, I eat more nutritious food and I rarely binge. Fantastic! but I am not there yet.  Tomorrow, lent begins. In this country lent is almost like new years in that people make resolutions, give something up or take something up. People tend to  give up sweets, crisps, alcohol or cigarettes or take up an activity/sport. I chose lent as my second start because I will be easy to explain; “No thanks, its lent”.

 

So my goals are as follows:

  1. No sugar
  2. No saying nasty things about myself
  3. Only eat when I am hungry, no boredom eating, no binges!
  4. Exercise three times per week
  5. Document what I am eating

One exception is that is someone has cooked a meal for me I am not going start asking whats in it. I wont eat desserts or sweets people have prepared but I’m not going to worry about “savory/healthy” food prepared by someone else.

 

No go food list : All Fruit, Added sugar of any kind,  Artificial Sweeteners, Candy, Cereal, Fruit Juice, Fruits,

Honey, Seitan, Soy,  White Bread, White Flour, White Rice, dried fruit.

 

Go to foods:  All Herbs,  All Vegetables, Avocado,  Beans, Beets, Brown Rice,  Coconut Oil,  Eggs, Fish,  Lemon and Lime, Nuts

Olive Oil, meat, quinoa, vegetables, salad, dairy products.

Mainly I want to feel good and to be happy.  🙂

Same old same old

5 Jan

Another busy day in work today. So enjoyable and really productive. I know it’s only been a week but I Had hoped to see some weight loss by now, which I haven’t Really besides 1 pounds which is water weight. today’s been okay.

I ate two boiled eggs and an apple for breakfast. lunch was shepards pie and s no added sugar yoghurt. popcorn as a snack. For dinner I’ll have two slices of whole-grain bread with a mashed banana. And a little something else.

I must keep on trying even though I’m finding it difficult to eat smaller portions, I find that I eat quite a lot of food. Usually I’m picking on bits here and there and all of those calories add up!!

I’m off tomorrow and I can’t wait to make some kind of delicious healthy recipe for dinner. I think I will also make a big batch of soup that I can bring with me to work next week. I love making soups, so wholesome, filling and yummy.

Cannot wait to get home tonight, to put my feet up with a good movie and relax after a hard days work.

Stirfry chicken onion and garlic together, add fresh ginger followed by desired spice blend I used garam mesala, turmeric, cumin, ground coriander, curry powder and chilli. Fry for 2 mins then add chicken stock about a pint. Simmer for 5-10 mins add veggies that you have to hand cook until tender. Add straight to wok noodles simmer until soft, and serve!

still on the wagon

1 Jan

I still have not full on binged-almost got there a few times but somehow manage to stand back breathe and say to my self, “how will you feel if you eat this?”, “Is this really what you want?”, “why am i going to eat this?”. It seems to really work and the more i resist the better at it i get at not giving in. 

 

Yesterday was very very hard. It being new years eve, I was out with my boyfriend and there was food everywhere. For breakfast I had a small bowl of shredded wheat with low fat milk, lunch was the main meal teryiaki salmon with steamed greens and a small amount of noodles. dinner was finger food about 500 cals worth id say and an ice cream- the only sugary food I ate that day but it was difficult and I ate more far than I should.

 

Today i am on my own so resisting a big blow out is proving difficult. breakfast was shredded wheat, lunch was beef stew, dinner will be a curry, i will also have a sugar free skim milk hot choc and an apple. sounds not too bad but i have already eaten toast and nibbled on bits such as cheese salmon crisps, even though I was not hungry, I didn’t even want to eat anything, stupid habit that i have to break though it will not be easy. 

I will post the recipe for tonight’s curry this evening if it turns out well.
