Up 10 mins early this morn to do my usual squats press ups & planks which I've not been very reliable with, as well as some back exercises.
B - 1 boiled egg, some strawberries dipped in Greek yog - I don't know if you get Total in the US, but it feels so indulgent having that as a treat, it's so super creamy you think it can't be good for you. But I reckon if you can tolerate some dairy the 9g of protein and 5g of fat per 100g is brilliant for keeping you full a bit longer.
S - banana, and I had a little networking meeting so I let them buy me a coffee - first one in a week! Buzzing a bit... ha. But I don't feel like I NEED coffee any more which is good.
L - prawn & avocado salad yum
S - a nice couple of vodka tonics after work (potentially a date...!)
D - aubergine, mozzarella, cherry toms & chorizo

I find supermarker own brand greek yoghurts to be the fattiest, whilst also being cheaper.
Although not having tried Total before (or any brand in a while) i can't speak to the taste difference, i only really use yog in smoothies, so the neat taste isn't as important to me
Oh really? If I look in Sainsbury's or Tesco they only ever seem to sell low/no fat options. Looking online now Sains own-brand greek yog has about 9g of fat per 100g, but only 4g of protein (lower than the carbs), and 6g of the fat is saturated.... and Tesco own-brand is less than 3g of fat!

although it does show how quickly carb counts can reach higher levels without realising it, i would typically consume 250ml in one sitting , so that's 13.25g carbs straight away, and that would be in a smoothie with a banana and a mango.
What I like about greek yog (of any kind) is how little I need to feel full up and satisfied. Of course I appreciate you use it for smoothies, but dam 250ml, I think that would fill me up for a day!
Yep I did! Sorry I haven't replied yet, I'm crap at keeping up with proper messages :-s

Stuck to rum and ginger beer last night, which prob isn't the best drink but I say if I'm not mixing/getting acid-y from wine & fizz then all good. And I had a pitta and hummus when I got back to my friend's, which again I feel fine about, helped me sleep and I'd done enough dancing and walking there and back to make up for it
B/L - cup of tea upon waking, then a coffee, scrambled eggs with 1 sausage, 2 slices bacon, tomato, some baked beans (hmm...), and some potato things.
4 miles! Easy peasy
S - banana
D - treat night - I got an Indian takeaway, so chicken biryani & saag paneer, a bit of naan and dairy milk chocolate... and now treat's over and back to primal living!
