The Body Project *Diary* - 21/01/201502:34
Given the fact that I felt
so poorly on Tuesday night I wasn’t feeling that adventurous food-wise on
Wednesday morning and I was still tired in the morning (which is surprising
given the extreme early night the night before!)
I didn’t leave myself enough time to prepare my scrambled eggs for breakfast so I opted for toast with a thin layer of jam & a cuppa instead. (1 point)
I didn’t take anything with me for lunch for the same reason and come lunch time I was ready to try something simple. I went to Tesco with the intention of picking up a plain ham sarnie, but there were none left, there wasn’t much left to be honest! I grabbed a sausage & egg sandwich this weighed in at 380 calories – which fell under the calorie allowance of 400 calories for lunch (1 point)
For some of you reading this you may be thinking the things she is eating aren't on the BP recommended food list; that's true they aren't listed as a meal option, however if you know me and my recent food habits you would understand & agree that for me these food choices are leaps & bounds healthier than a Sausage & Egg McMuffin, a full fry up or a bowl piled high of sugar-heavy cereal. My thoughts on this is that instead of following the BP meal plan (although it's recommended) I will count my calories with Andy on My Fitness Pal and use the BP recipes as a guide to portion sizes & inspiration on food ideas mainly for dinners. I really do think that the introduction of more movement into my days is proving beneficial; clothes seem to fit a little looser and I feel good for it.
Leanne & I went on a great walk during her lunch, we walked for nearly 55 minutes at a leisurely pace all over the surrounding areas. We even tried a new route to spice it up a little.
It was my friends’s birthday, so there were two cake options; a gorgeous looking mousse cake from Paul and an M&S lemon sponge roll. As delectable as the moussey number seemed, I opted for the lighter option and treated myself to a sliver of the lemon sponge roll.
I walked back to London Bridge which enabled me to hit my steps goal (BP: 4,000 – target smashed! Personal target smashed: 14,070 steps taken) (1 point)
