UPDATE: Health, Fitness and Temptation (Week 1)

All and in all things have been going OK. I have no specific diet plan, I pretty much know what I should and shouldn’t be eating.

I will brief you on my journey so far:
*I totally forgot to take note of my progress until now, I can remember as far as Sunday.

Sunday 

Sunday…Funday! My family went to the shops and asked if I had any requests. I said no without giving it any thought. I had a lot on my mind and I would usually run to my beloved junk food, however this time I didn’t.

My family soon returned with two bottles of Cider (My summer favourite), Kinder Bueno (My love) and 2 Mars Ice Cream bars (Another one of my loves). I will be honest and say I gave in to 1/4 of the Kinder Bueno and then crawled into my bed shortly after. Phew! Temptation was apparent on Sunday.

*One day we’ll meet again

Monday 

I woke up the next day like nothing had happened…After work I headed straight to the supermarket. I picked up:

  • Beetrout
  • A pineapple
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Feta Cheese
  • Tomatoes
  • Courgettes
  • Cucumbers
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Oats
  • Bananas
  • Berries
  • Aubergine

This is all I can think of at the top of my head. I have no idea why I listed everything, but hey! There was only so much my little old hands could carry. When I arrived home there was more food waiting for me (Thank you!)

I decided to prep my smoothies. I am not one to follow smoothie recipes, I literally look around my kitchen, pick up anything that looks like a fruit or vegetable and throw it in the blender. I wasn’t too fussed about having a variety at this point. I bagged up all the goodies and headed to the freezer.

I noticed there was still a Mars bar left in the freezer trying to lure me in, so I slowly pushed the freezer drawer shut and resisted temptation (yet again).

Tuesday 

I dusted off my Jillian Micheal’s 30 day Shred DVD. My ancient DVD player failed to work, I thought it was a sign to eat breakfast instead and start my day (I kid). I did eat breakfast though and I waited another hour before I did my work out (I used my PC).

A lot of people say they hate breakfast… I love breakfast.. I’m thinking about breakfast now! I am having huge cravings for nothing in particular just something that isn’t healthy *grabs hold of water bottle*. I felt nauseous towards the end of the workout and spent 15 mins laying on the floor.

I left a note asking for no pasta with my bolognese for dinner and I came home to white rice. I boiled some sweet potato mash instead. My mum suggested I had a little rice and I said no. Sorry white rice, I still have love for you.

Later on my sweet tooth was crying out for a little something. I stopped off and bought; a nut and raisin mix, rice cakes and peanut butter to satisfy my needs.

Wednesday 

Today… My workout was great. I have been starving after every meal.

  • Breakfast: Half a smoothie (Beetroot, kale, spinach, watermelon & celery), Porridge oats (Pumpkin seeds, banana and blueberries)
  • Snack 1: Handful of nuts and raisins
  • Lunch: Turkey rashers, Salad, avocado and 2 boiled eggs
  • Snack 2: 2 rice cakes with peanut butter
  • Dinner: Turkey pieces, Baked courgettes, kale and salad
  • Drinks: Water only and a cup of kale juice in the evening

I was offered some ice cream and I refused! Ughh! Everywhere I look I see FOOOOOOOD! Everything besides the food on my plate looks so yummy.

*No this salad isn’t on the list of food that looks yummy, I couldn’t bear searching for something mouth-watering.
