Day 2 was a bit tougher than Day 1 – I did feel hungry & snacky all the time (hardly surprising going from 12 meals a day to 5!!!) and several times I didn’t manage to stop myself because it was raining torrentially and I couldn’t bring myself to go out for a distracting walk. I did manage to resist eating really calorific snacks though, and the scales are down again this morning so I guess that was enough!
I trained before breakfast yesterday – the good old faithful elliptical walker – then took down my Christmas tree and hoovered up all the stray tinsel, so there was some good active stuff going on there. In the afternoon there was a break in the rain, but it didn’t look like it would last long so I settled for a quick dash into town for some big bottles of flavoured water (I drank 3.5 litres of water yesterday – much more than I have been forcing down!)
Food on the 3rd:
Breakfast: A big ‘green’ smoothie of berries, spinach, whey and banana (ok, it’s more sludge coloured than green, but that’s what happens when you add berries…)
Lunch: Was very green – spinach soup, to which I had added a tiny bit of stilton left over from Christmas
Dinner: A big-ass salad with basil tofu again (yesterday’s photo as today’s was so similar – minus the coleslaw on top)
Snacks: a jar of cockles; some raisins; a pot of Greek yoghurt with a tiny bit of honey; some roast turkey
