Next time I barbecue I’m going to base the amount of meat I eat on how I’ve been eating in the run up. I had stomach ache last night, and though I was way over on my calories, most of the reason was eating very energy dense foods, so it wasn’t down to stuffing myself stupid a la binge monster! It may have been the creamy sugariness of the ice-cream I suppose… I don’t know how long it takes your body to stop being used to eating meat when you cut it out / right down. The combination of everything I ate yesterday clearly didn’t agree with me!
I had a beautiful walk into town this morning. it was glorious sunshine again, I had sunscreen on and was wearing shorts instead of jeans – so I felt like I was on holiday, rather than baking to death in the hottest ring of hell! Oh yes, and I remembered to take some water too! I also met 2 lovely dogs (didn’t get photos because I felt awkward asking their owners if they minded) but they were 2 year old huskies, a male who accepted attention as his due, and a female who leaned on my leg then rolled on her back for a tummy rub! Made my day as I didn’t get to see my usual canine friend!
I didn’t get many interesting photos but I took these because I like the patterns and contrast of the branches silhouetted against the lovely blue sky.
Breakfast: All bran with strawberries and toast with LC and jam
Lunch: Cowboy beans with quinoa and roasted vegetables
Dinner: Chunky vegetable soup with toast & LC (this bowl * 2)
Snacks: Peanut butter flavour Clif bar; some peanut butter; a glass of fresh juice (orange, grapefruit, apple, carrot & cucumber) and a protein smoothie (to which I added the pulp from the juicing process – but it wasn’t very good so I threw maybe 30% of it away)
Weight today: 10 st 3.4lbs (143.4lbs) Ouch! But despite what I said yesterday, I actually do prefer to weigh after pigging out – it makes me more comfortable with the pigging if I don’t act like I’m ashamed of it! I know I didn’t eat that many calories (though definitely way over) so I doesn’t bother me (ok, doesn’t bother me much – I’m not THAT healthy yet!!!)
