So I got on the scales this morning, as I do every morning, and got a SHOCK. I weighed 137.0 lbs. I haven't weighed that much in over a year. I have seen the scales creeping upward for the last few days, but was hoping it was just water or a fluke or something. I guess all this nibbling and munching has caught up with me at last.
This just cannot be allowed to happen. If I get back up into the 140s, I'll kill myself! Not to mention not be able to wear any of my clothes. I just took my measurements and I'm up at least a half inch on the waist and hips. (I was never very good at taking measurements. I can do it four or five times in a row and come out with a slightly different number each time!)
Well, it's all my own fault. I guess it's food diary time again.
Might as well start with today. I'm going to be good and not eat so many sneaky snacks--handfuls of cereal pulled right out of the box, dates from the packet while I'm cooking dinner, all that sort of thing. There's no excuse for gaining 3 pounds in a week! What is UP with that!
Breakfast: 2 slices wholemeal seeded batch loaf toast with a scrape of almond butter and about 2 Tbs total of peach and strawberry no-sugar jam, 1 cup plain Caro, 1 pint of water
Snack: 1/2 banana and 1/2 papaya topped with about a cup of soaked meusli (oats and raisins soaked in oatmilk--I've provided a link to Jamie Oliver's recipe, although I've never made it.I may pay a visit to the shops today to get the ingredients for it, though!)
Lunch:a plate of brown basmati rice with refried beans and some piri piri dressing
UH OH: I ate a few handfuls of Derek's granola cereal. I have no idea why.
Another UH OH: Mixing up the pukkola, I ate dried fruit and a brazil nut.
Snack: No official snack because of uh-ohs.
Dinner: Roasted carrots and potatoes and a Linda McCartney burger patty.
WORKOUT: Jari Love's Get Ripped 1000
I'll be back to fill in the rest of this as the day progresses.
:( Ugh. 137.
Maybe this is the kick in the pants I've been needing.
