Hello Beautiful People ❤
Happy Sunday to you all!
So as you will know from my post last week on Losing the Holiday Weight, this has been my first week trying to get back on track. I can’t use the holiday blues as an excuse any longer! I have been easing myself back into it as opposed to going full throttle and falling off the wagon. I see loads of people doing a post holiday detox; cutting out carbs and only drinking juices. While I admire their dedication, I just need real food.
I have been sticking to the Healthy Eating Guidelines I set out for myself last Sunday. The only thing I didn’t do everyday was drink the green tea, but I did drink a few cups throughout the week. It’s amazing how I remembered to ensure I had my treat everyday but not the green tea, but that’s a whole other story!
Still my favourite Green Tea –
I’ve also been trying to curb my never ending sugar cravings with healthier chocolate alternatives. I love the Shapers bars from Boots. The nutritional values also aren’t too bad considering it is a bar of chocolate.
I have also been adding some of these Good Food Indian style sides to my meals, they are great when you are too tired after work to make a big dinner. Having them with chicken or steak means it’s a healthy and tasty dinner.
They are Gluten Free, Dairy Free & Vegan!
Anyone who follows me on Snapchat will see that I have been eating quite a lot of broccoli this week. My mother has spent 24 years trying to make me eat vegetables with little success. Lately however I have just been craving broccoli, which I can hands down say is a first for me! I’ve been eating it with salmon and whole wheat pasta which is great for keeping me full.
Friday and Saturday weren’t my best days, I did have a bit too much of a ‘treat’ on each of these days. What I am happiest about however is that I didn’t do my usual ‘that’s it, I’ve ruined it, time to go all out and eat everything in sight’ carry on, so if nothing else that is a small victory.
I am going out today / tonight for food and drinks and I know my calorie / fat consumption is going to be through the roof but it is one day so I’m not going to feel too guilty over it. I will be back on track Monday provided the head isn’t too sore!
I will keep updating my Instagram and Snapchat with what I’m eating. I’m using them as a food diary type thing! If you’re also eating healthily (or trying to like me) then send me some pictures on Snapchat too. I have a weird obsession with people’s eating habits 😉
Have a Great Sunday Guys ❤
All My Love
