Back to walking!

I only walked into Caldicot but it was good to be out again (even though I got slightly wet in a little drizzle). Yesterday I didn't do any real training as you know, and by evening I was feeling restless and dissatisfied with myself - so as we watched a recorded episode of Diet Tribe I walked round and round my kitchen for half an hour - just took the edge off! I think I probably looked a bit like a caged animal on the prowl, but I just couldn't sit still any more! Hard to believe, but I get that way on rest days, even on special days like Christmas Day itself (last year I took a 2 hour walk with my father in law after lunch - and another one on Boxing Day!) I was going to do the yogalates dvd again today, but decided to wait at least one more day as I had some backache again today - I did my back in playing volleyball (insufficiently warmed up) at school, and I don't like to risk going back to that.
Food today:
Breakfast:
Porridge made with quakers oats, toffee fudge true whey, a snack box of raisins, teaspoon of linseeds, tablespoon of wheatbran and soy milk. It was too runny again, but tasty!

Lunch:
Grilled vegetable wrap and vegetable soup with quorn 'chicken style pieces' added. As you can probably tell the wrap wasn't big enough to actually 'wrap' around the vegetables, but I mostly managed to hold it together long enough to eat it!


Dinner:
Sausage casserole with baked sweet potato, roasted broccoli and green beans. Only one portion of sausage casserole left now!

Snacks:
Protein bar, nakd pecan pie bar (small), popcorn (air popped with a little oil spray & salt) and some peanut butter... I have to stop keeping peanut butter in the house! Usually I have it for M, but now he's on a diet so I don't need it for him - and I can't resist it myself! I won't replace this jar when its finished (probably tomorrow...Free Emoticons)
Weight today: 10 st 2.5 lbs (142.5 lbs)
Stay Healthy

  1. Hi. We've had a few VERY heavy showers of rain here today. Almost scary it's so heavy. Sounds like you really need a treadmill!

    Your food all looks gorgeous as usual. Especially the sausage casserole. I could just eat that right now!

    All that walking is certainly having an effect on your weight.

    I don't know what Diet Tribe is? Maybe a programme on a channel I can't get - which is a lot. Freeview is such a con! And I have even less channels since the recent retune GRRRRR. I really miss Jeeves and Wooster!

    Best wishes,

  3. Hey Chrissie,
    I, too, love the food pics. Yummy stuff you fix.

    I had a pleasant walk in the rain today myself. It was raining pretty hard, but no rain - and I had my favorite big umbrella and my rubber boots. It was fun to actually splash in the puddles.

    Nice weigh in! Congrats.
