Breakfast - Toasted Egg and Tomato panini
Lunch - Garlic and Herb roast chicken, salad and tatziki
Dinner - Roast lamb ribs and salad, along with a random slice of bread that isn’t in the shot
Following a decisive measure to cut down on the bread/carb intake, I don’t think today went particularly well. Breakfast was delayed and pushed back until I was hungry enough to just say yes to the panini, which is no a new lesson for me to learn. It can’t be emphasised enough just how important planning really is, so as not to cave into random temptations that you’d otherwise feel guilty for later.
Lunch was much better, chicken, salad and greek yoghurt. Satisfying and fairly delicious. I’m often satisfied with meat and salad or meat and veg, it’s just the meat part that I find hard to factor in during the lunch hour; especially when at work. And I don’t feel like living my days on constant chicken.
Dinner was a little less satisfying, I don’t know how I ended up eating the slice of bread but that’s why this challenge has proved beneficial. I’m more aware or surprised as to what and when I eat. The bits that just sneak into my mouth without clear thought, something I’m more prone to when at home. Outside the comfort of my own house and I’m on red alert as to what there is around me to actually snack on, often determining whether I will snack or not. I crave crunchy things, and red peppers and carrots might be the answer to that problem.
As for my water in take, I did manage a litre of water, 1.2 litre to be exact. I didn’t quite make the 1.5 because I only drank half of a half litre bottle of water in the evening. OH WELL.
Verdict: Red peppers and carrots are the key.
