What I Ate – 19.08.16

Hi guys,

A late what I ate in a day due to my crazy schedule – apologies!

 photo 2016-08-19 09.50.30.jpg
Breakfast was some dry curiously cinnamon cereal (trying to clear out the cupboards a bit!) with a ham sandwich.

Lunch was half of this stewed aubergine dish and white rice (shared it with my sister) and a clementine.

Sorry for the dodgy lighting! Snack was this ham salad from Asda and a flat peach (not pictured) as I was having dinner made by my ex and he wasn’t home until quite late.

Dinner was nachos with jalapeños, salsa and cheese. I ate about a quarter of this and was absolutely stuffed!

So overall, not really a fantastic day. Will definitely strive to do better in my next What I Ate post! I’m really struggling to find a balance of healthy eating and working 70-80 work weeks at the moment. If you have any tips, please leave them below!

Until next time.. x

Until next time.. x

Yeah, so I think I went a little overboard in the last few days – particularly on Saturday. I did extra exercise and I think that contributed to me eating like a horse. Looking back it seems a bit ridiculous! Plus I ate four lots of pizza (1 healthified, the others not) which seems a bit much. I’ll see how I do during weigh in as looking at what I ate, makes me think I will have probably have gained!

EDIT: Lost 2lb this week. Although I think maybe I was lucky – I’m going to lay off the pizza this week!

Until next time.. x

I’ve had a bit of an odd week and I’m just amazed the steak and kidney pudding wasn’t higher in syns! Total nostalgia for me as you can’t find a steak and kidney pudding in a chippy in Yorkshire. Such a massive treat. Hoping that I won’t go too crazy until weigh in – I may need to tweak my syns for Mon-Wed so I make sure I don’t go over but really hoping for a loss this week 🙂

Until next time.. x

Fri – Mon Round Up (2nd – 5th Jan)

Hi guys,

Just a quick round up of my food for you guys. I’ve found it a little bit hard to jump back on the wagon, despite wanting to desperately! Anyone else find that after indulging over Christmas, it’s hard to be really disciplined with yourself again? It’s crazy. Especially as I wanted to try the new EE SP plan so hardly any carbs on top of that was a bit like torture the first couple of days. However, I am back on the wagon now. Sunday seemed to be a little turning point and I’ve made sure I’m really organised with my food for this week so my head is most definitely in the game!

My mason jar filled & ready to go!


Trying to make sure I’m drinking enough water. Got this cute mason jar and metal straw over Christmas and I’ve filled it with cucumber and strawberries to give it a bit of flavour. It worked well yesterday so I’m hoping to manage another 2L today and to get over the headache!

Hope you have a great day guys! 🙂

Hi guys,

Just a quick round up session. I’ve been pretty busy with fitting Christmas meals out with my exam revision and work (yes, I’m to blame for poor planning and not wanting to punk out!).

So that’s how the last few days have gone. I seem to have developed a sweet tooth which is unlike me and I’m going to try and get rid of it! Weigh in on Wednesday is going to be a bit of a nightmare I think as my Mum needs me to drive her to Malton in the evening so she’s decided on a girly dinner. As it wasn’t planned, I’m going to make sure that my choices are going to be more SW-friendly. I don’t think I can take any more hits this week. All this Christmas malarkey has worn what was left of my self control extremely thin. Definitely need to get this back!!

Until next time.. x
