Week 7: holiday week

10th February 2020img_1271

As always if you are interested feel free to read but a reminder that this is a diary that I am enjoying writing to keep me on track. 

So we went away at the weekend and I’ve been getting back into the swing of things for the rest of the week, I may have a few pictures missing but I did enjoy my time off so I am not too worried. The thing I still need to work on is drinking water and getting that exercise schedule down. My legs were killing after a few weeks off of the gym. I guess that will show me.

 

 

Daily Calorie Goal: 1650|Daily Water Goal: 2L|Weekly Exercise Goal: 1-2 hrs

Monday- day 41 (Spent 5 hours in a car)

We had a take away ok…I had a chicken tikka masala with naan bread and some chicken pakoras it was very good and we got caught in the snow driving back so we just couldn’t face cooking.

Total Calories: unknown

Tuesday- day 42

I felt a little ill after our journey yesterday and didn’t eat too much. I was very thirsty and I think the takeaway last night might have had something to do with it.

Breakfast: Alpro protein shake (190 cal), 2 pieces of buttered (36 cal) toast (178 cal) and a coffee (0 cal) = 405 cal

Lunch: …

Dinner:  Stuffed butternut squash (Pinch of Nom: Everyday Light, p. 209) = 396 cal

Water: 2L

 

Total Calories: 1003 cal

Wednesday- day 43

Feeling much better today and I was very productive mostly house work and getting myself sorted before I head back to work. Food is also starting to fall back into place although I am still not drinking enough.

Breakfast: Alpro protein shake (190 cal), 2 pieces of buttered (36 cal) toast (178 cal) and a coffee (0 cal) = 405 cal

Total Calories: 1643 cal

Thursday- day 44

Early morning gym session and getting some lunches made. I also planned out our low calorie valentines meal and made sure to get everything in. I had a good talk with my trainer this week and we figured out a way next week to try and get more exercise in. Finger crossed.

Breakfast: Protein shake (180 cal) and buttered (36 cal) crumpet thins (159 cal) = 378 cal

Friday- day 45 (Valentine’s Day)

I deliberately did not have any lunch as we were having a 3 course meal in the evening. This was a great valentines day, I highly recommend taking some time out to plan something like this, it didn’t take us all day and we don’t feel like we have been naughty! My partner even planned in a beer.

Breakfast: Alpro protein shake (197 cal) and crumpet thins (159 cal) with butter (36 cal) = 392 cal
