I can’t believe it, after I posted last night the bloody snacking came back! I had an apple, then some more brown rice puffs, a couple of spoonfuls of dessicated coconut (?!), a glass of milk and some raisins. I’m pretty sure that this is boredom related, when I’m parked on the sofa in front of the TV I seem to need something to shovel in my gob the whole time. I think I’m going to have to challenge myself to no evening snacking for at least a week and see how I get on.
This morning I had my weekly weigh in and I’ve gained 3lbs! Now I’m not going to go into a melt down like I did the last time this happened, as this time I have a theory. The last time I spontaneously gained weight (4lbs) was exactly 4 weeks ago. I’m wondering if this weigh gain is related to my monthly cycle. I’m on the pill so my cycle is kept to exactly 4 weeks. I can’t check back further than this as I wasn’t keeping a good record over January although I did record a weigh in on the blog in what would be the week after this and I lost 3lbs. The week after my weight gain in Feb I also lost weight (5lbs) so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that when I weigh in next week I’ll drop what I seem to have put on this week (heres hoping!) I know that I have been extra snacky this week but I certainly don’t feel like I’ve ate enough to gain 3lbs!
Anyway, after all of that I went and made breakfast. I had porridge topped with natural yoghurt and some plums which I had nuked in the microwave for a few seconds with honey and cinnamon.
Mid morning snack was an apple and two babybel lights.
Lunch was two oranges followed by a bowl of leek, potato and sweet potato soup.
Work had my head battered in, and even though I should have really stayed back a while I decided to head home at 4. When I got in I had a few savory brown rice cakes and a cup of decaf tea.
I watched a bit of the Eddie Izzard Marathon documentary I had Sky + the other day, he is crazy but totally amazing. He’s ran all of those marathons for such a good cause, very inspirational. I really want to do the Great North Run at some point, fingers crossed for 2011!
Dinner was some tofu marinated in hoi sin sauce stir fried with brocolli, carrot and red pepper.
Followed by some Green and Blacks dark chocolate, yum!
Drinks – water, green tea, decaf tea
Exercise – rest day
Well I haven’t had many comments on my last post to help me decide what desert to make on Saturday! Thanks to the comment from Laura, I think I am going to go for the chocolate tofu mousse with dark cherry compote, I just hope it turns out ok!
Well I’ve got a fab weekend planned! What has everyone else got going on? I’ve got grocery shopping, a run, yoga, cooking, night out at my friends, calling in at my mam and dads and a strength workout. Looking forward to it! Hope you all have a great weekend what ever your up to xxx
