Bit of a naughty weekend, but that's the way of festival food, and you can't say no to fish & chips at the seaside. Still, a lot of fun was had with the boy, I even went in the sea yesterday quite willingly (rare for me heh) and it was warm - who would've thought it in England!
I think I'm going to set myself a no-bread challenge, on a rolling week by week basis. So it starts today. Today is also the day I get my IUD fitted, which is quite scary, I think my tummy's already seizing up in preparation ha wonderful. Wish me luck for the afternoon.
3 mile run
B - two boiled eggs, black coffee, satsuma
L - bacon feta & avocado salad
S - a little bit cheeky but post-doctor's I've allowed myself a few kettle chips & hummus, and a piece of chocolate. The appointment was actually much better than I was anticipating, a bit uncomfortable but not painful and now I just feel a bit crampy; and they say that's the worst of it! Fingers crossed that's it now for 10 years - mad!
D - chicken shish, rice & salad
That sounds so lovely! I'm obsessed with the ocean. Never get near it these days but I could happily live right by it. Especially today I need to be swimming in the sea and/or sipping an iced coffee lol
Lovely to read about your blossoming romance. Have you told him about your eating habbits? I know when I was dating I never used to know the right time to bring it up was!
I haven't spent a weekend in London for a month now! He drives so there's no excuse not to jump in the car and go somewhere really. In fact he just sent me a text saying he's going to plan something for us for a few weekends' time. Weird giving up my organiser role!
Yeah it's going really well :) almost too good to be true...considering we met on an online dating site! I've told him i'm gluten free and I have mentioned 'caveman habits' a few times but not much more than that. He knows I'm really into reading up on nutritional stuff and he actually has Crohn's which flares up now and then so he's fairly careful himself, like he quite smoking 7 months ago and he's been talking about giving up booze quite a lot recently. It's pretty good, he's happy to go for a steak & veg and not bother with bread or anything so he's certainly not making it difficult!
Feeling a bit crampy this morning so heading into work late (need these painkillers to kick in!). I forgot how the first day of my period was always quite painful when I was younger. Though the bleeding seems to have stopped and wasn't even very much yesterday anyway. I think this is going to be okay...
B - two fried eggs & 3 rashers bacon, some blueberries
S - satsuma, banana, and a biscuit (can't lie to you can I. Needed some sugar was feeling so awful all day :( )
L - ham salad with sun dried tomatoes
D - baked aubergine with pancetta & mozzarella
Ah I am SO much more refreshed this morning! Thank god. Cramps have nearly all gone, and I think I might actually be experiencing TOTM.... stupidly excited by that ha.
B - two boiled eggs, black coffee
S - banana, peppermint tea
L - my director's leaving lunch at a highly dodgy restaurant, I wasn't too certain of the freshness or provenance of their food at all... :-s had some goats cheese, lettuce, couple of olives, couple of pan-fried squid, piece of salmon with far too much pesto on it, green beans and some mozzarella & tomato, couple of glasses of wine. My tummy hurts :(
S - so the cramps started again and I have into a bit of dairy milk chocolate. Never mind.
D - sushi chez the boy's :)
Ergh not enjoying work at all... so annoying to get promoted and then feel massively unproductive and un-needed for the last two weeks... bugger. still getting cramps too :(
B - fruit and yoghurt (melon & pineapple mainly), flat white coffee
S - satsuma
L - bacon avocado & feta salad
S - peppermint tea, two hard boiled eggs
D - really bad...and I know I'm only eating this because I feel miserable...takeaway chicken & rice in some naughty sauce
Happy Friday! Let's hope it is one...
bit of a mini workout today - leg raises, press ups, some ab crunches...
B - two boiled eggs, black coffee, a few strawberries & blueberries
S - banana, black coffee
L - tuna salad
Six mile run yeeeeah :)
D - chicken (in breadcrumbs I must admit), with mixed salad & feta
Oof two weeks off... I've been a bit demotivated, not so much diet-wise, just in general, work and stuff. But I realised this morning if I'm going to feel better in myself I need to keep track in writing and not in my head, so I've got to get back on here.
Things to sort out - my skin, my energy levels
This week's challenge - no caffeine (other than green tea), no gluten, no dairy
I just feel like something's a little off kilter and I need to nip it in the bud. Though it is probably stress-related (had a couple of horrible arguments with the boy that we really need to move on from), I think diet will help to settle things. Weird of me to say things like this but I feel I've lost some self confidence, like I'm questioning and over-analysing things rather than just keeping a positive frame of mind. Hope it's hormones...
Running is still going well though :)
