Today I wore:
I also had a cheeky Costa. I told myself that I'm allowed one a month, as they are pretty expensive (£2.45 for a small latte) and I'm trying to cut back on my spending a bit this month. Despite this, I didn't regret it! I got a skinny gingerbread latte (1 shot please) as a little 'treat'.
Breakfast: Porridge with unsweetened almond milk in my little Ikea bowl.
I tried to make quinoa porridge, but I think I must have burnt it or something because it tasted awful! Maybe I'll try again in the future.
Lunch: Soup/soda bread/salad
I added some 'Good 4 U' lentil and bean shoots, which I purchased on a whim as it cost the neat and tidy sum of £1. Such as sucker.
We had lunch quite late, at about 3.30pm. By this time S was feeling pretty weak, but I was feeling fine...which leads me on to my next 'section'.
So having a late lunch sparked some alarm bells in my head. As I wasn't feeling hungry, part of me thought 'why bother with lunch, I feel fine', but I know that that is a dangerous slope, that I'd want to restrict more and more. Or even if I didn't restrict, it's that MINDSET that I don't want to enter back into. Luckily I managed to eat lunch (I had some melon for dessert too) and will eat dinner too, but it's that little niggle along with a fear of getting fat. I'm trying to maintain my positive mindset/actions and I'm sure that the niggle will pass (especially once I return to work and I have more pressing things to manage), but I need to be careful. Yesterday I felt I ate too much, so I guess that's why I'm experiencing this mental backlash today.
I also weighed myself for the first time since before Christmas. I think I put on 0.2kg, which is fine. I don't want to get into the habit of weighing myself again.
Sorry for the negativity there (if anyone is reading!) but I wanted to get that out, acknowledge it and try to get back to my positive thinking.
I'm going to have a bath and finish my book (Hermann Hesse's 'Siddhartha') and then have a nice cup of Earl Grey. I sound so old, but this nearly always helps when I'm feeling wobbly (in all ways!)
Tonight's dinner will probably be a sweet potato with a nut butter and kale or something similar. I also purchased some muller light yoghurts, which are FULL of additives, very bad, I know, but I like to freeze them and eat them after dinner. Another 'bad' habit, but one I will permit for this month. It could be worse as far as bad habits go...
Hope your Saturdays are going well :)
