And partly sunny Saturday…
As you may have picked up yesterday, my weigh in was not much fun. Still, I managed to persuade myself not to slump too far into my usual self pity, and resisted the urge to stuff my face full of comfort food all day even so. I had quite a pleasant walk into town in the morning, and a very peaceful afternoon featuring a long hot soak in the bath-tub after a 40 minute elliptical session as well.
This morning I walked into Chepstow. It was overcast here early on, but by the time I was heading out the clouds were starting to break up, and by the time I got half way there it was sunny and warm enough to have me taking off my jacket. Lovely! It stayed beautiful all afternoon and M spent some time out in the garden building a new BBQ we’ve just bought because we’re planning another family extravaganza in the summer.
Breakfast: Weight watchers beans on GF olive-tomato toast
Lunch: Hot & Sour soup cooked in the slow-cooker with rice cakes topped with Philadelphia light and vegetables
Dinner: Fake Nandos with a GF roll, Portobello mushroom & halloumi marinated in garlic peri peri sauce, salad and squash chips flavoured with garlic pepper.
Snacks: My first smoothie for ages;
A 9 seed bar (all gone now thankfully – I love them but they’re too high calorie for my taste); and some cottage cheese with reduced sugar jam stirred in
Breakfast: Gluten free waffles! These were actually probably the most successful waffles I’ve made so far – delish! I basically followed this recipe, but subbed Dove’s GF Plain flour for the brand listed, used buttermilk instead of regular milk, and added a handful of blueberries + half a teaspoon of vanilla essence on impulse at the last minute. With Greek yoghurt and a selection of fruit
Lunch: Chicken rice soup with a couple of GF chipolatas and some spinach added, plus some rice cakes topped with the same toppings as above
Dinner: Socca pizza with swede chips and salad
Snacks: I may have accidentally drunk a Frijj Cookies & cream flavoured milkshake on the way back from town and eaten some dried berries. I’d previously had a planned for cocoa mint Nak’d bar, and I also had a bottle of protein water
