What a difference it makes when you take the time to make sure you eat enough food in the day. Tonight I feel all happy and healthy with a nice full tummy because I remembered to eat. Hurrah for that!
I had a few food fails today actually in that I didn’t really enjoy everything I made. Oh well, it happens.
Here’s what it was:
Breakfast: Smoothie – meant to do choc berry but spaced it and forgot to put the cacao in for the choc. Whoops. It was frozen organic banana, frozen organic berries, chia seeds, 1 cup coco-quench milk. Whizzed to buggery in the Thermie.
Snack: Had a cup of Early Gray tea with a friend. We watched her little boy for half an hour this morning.
Lunch: Started lunch with a nice pear today.
Finally ate the last piece of that roast vege lasagne. I’ve made that dish in the past and done a much better job of it. It really wasn’t that amazing this time. I need to work on it.
I also had the rinds of 2 pieces of bacon in the fridge needing to be used. I cut it off the bacon when I used it for the fried rice on Sunday night. Sooooo I might have microwaved and eaten the rinds. Yes, it was pig fat. What can I say? It was amazing.
Dinner: I had two cravings today: one for pumpkin soup, the other for lamb loin chops. So I decided to have both for dinner. I figured the big serving of veges in the sooup could be my vege side to the chops. I made steamed veg for Monkey who was so tired he was beside himself at dinner time and hardly at a thing. *sigh*
Anyway, my soup SUCKED. I followed the Thermomix recipe and actually forgot to do the puree bit at the end so it came out not quite puree but not quite chunky and rather watery. I couldn’t be bothered putting it back in to mix once I realised so I added lots of pepper and a dab of pesto and that helped a little. I have 2 serves of the soup left so I will pour those back in and puree tomorrow. Hopefully that will improve things. Such a disappointment! I even went out and bought the organic pumpkin for it. It also had a few organic carrots, an onion and vege stock.
I can’t believe there are only 5 days of this challenge left! When I first started it seemed like it was soooooo long that I would be stuck eating all this healthy food and none of my treats but now I’m working out how I can make sure I stick with it. I feel good and I like feeling healthy so I think I can do it. The whole thing would be greatly improved if I could just add in some exercise. Really need to work on that soon…maybe that can be phase 2 of my little program.
Ok folks, that’s it for today. Only 5 more days of hearing me bang on about what food I eat. You can do it!
PS My next cycle should start ANY DAY NOW and I can barely wait to get on with this priming. I feel like there has been so much down time. Ugh. I know it is all going to be worth it as hopefully the healthy down time is helping me make amazing eggs but sheesh, I am SO READY. Let’s get this show ON. THE. ROAD. Woooo!
