The day got off to a bad start when I woke up at 3:30 with the kind of headache that makes you check if someone actually stuck an ice pick in your forehead. I tried to sleep it off, failed, and had to get some painkillers then go back to bed to finish it off. An hour later, and I felt good enough to get up and have breakfast:
And later, to have my usual bowl of all bran (with a nectarine) for a snack.
I had been planning to run today, but due to being tired and still not feeling 100% I decided to settle for walking into town instead I was disappointed, but then it was an OK day, and I like walking, so I cheered up and enjoyed the walk:
After the walk it was time for lunch - and I was hungry! I grilled some veggies - I'm still hooked, plus they needed using up - and made a quick salad. I also tossed some cooked & peeled prawns with a little Levi Roots Fiery Guava Dipping Sauce - I love this spicy, fruity sauce!
For my afternoon snack I tried to make something a lot of bloggers have been making - banana softserve, they call it, essentially 'ice-cream' made by blending up frozen banana with a little sweetener if required. My blender wasn't up the job though, so I ended up adding berries, fromage frais, soya milk, whey protein & spinach to make one of my nice thick smoothies-in-a-bowl. I suppose they are kind of like soft ice-cream in a way, since the berries I use - and the banana, this time - are frozen. It was delicious anyway.
Now I'm struggling to decide what to have for dinner. I was going to make a tomato risotto with pearl barley instead of risotto rice, but I'm not really in the mood. I guess I'll update later with my final choice.
Not feeling bingey today, so that's good. Maybe I just can't handle an exercise-free day!
Weight today: 10 st 5.1 lbs (145.1 lbs) - a bit disappointing, but I'm pretty sure its just a minor fluctuation. I want to reach 10 st even (or better, a pound or two lower) by the holiday at the end of November, so I have plenty of time even if it does seem to be coming off about 1 oz a week...
