Last week I decided to share a healthy recipe instead of my usual Bikini Body series, but now it’s back to the food & diet posts as my holiday looms!
You can find the recipe I shared last week Here – I’ll definitely be making these again!
I ate quite well Monday through to Thursday evening. From there however, I was a bit of a disaster. Birthdays and Beyonce meant I just threw caution to the wind over the weekend. I basically ate whatever I wanted, but I really do think you have to enjoy these events. Needless to say on Sunday I didn’t feel too abtastic!
My Snapchat Story over the weekend can pretty much be summed up as follows:
On Sunday, I pulled myself back on to the wagon however. I know it’s a weird day to do it, but Monday’s are hard enough as is. I ordered the Goats Cheese, Walnut & Beetroot Salad instead of the pizza that I wanted when we went for dinner. That’s an achievement in my book!
This week however I’m not having a Cheat Day. I find that I’m just binge eating and consuming a ridiculous amount because I want to make the most of it. It’s then too hard to get back to healthy eating the following day.
Instead, I’m taking the ‘Pat Divilly’ approach and having three cheat meals a week. This will (hopefully) stop me overeating junk food and going a little crazy on the sugar. It will be easier to keep my diet on track as I won’t be counting down the days until I can have a free pass.
Back to hot water & lemon each morning too!
I’m also going to try out this Buckwheat & Chickpea pasta during the week. I’m aiming to make my meals more substantial to avoid snacking on sugary and processed food. Carbs are not the enemy and I tend to feel fuller if I add them to my meals. Being hungry just results in chocolate so I am trying to avoid that!
How are you guys getting on?
Here’s to a Healthy & Happy week!
All My Love
