D: Dined out for a works meal at a nice Greek restaurant ~ Dr: 1 x glass red wine. St: Mussels in a white wine sauce. Ma: Slow cooked beef in a tomato based sauce, on a bed of creamy mash topped with parmesan. De: Resisted temptation

(Unfortunately I did consume bread with this meal, mainly to mop up the delicious sauce from the mussels - digestion a little funny this morning, gluten related..)

20/12

Bad start to the day: woke up late (late night) with no time to prepare breakfast or lunch so far have eaten 2x small apples and 1x small orange (we get free fruit at work). Managed to bring an avocado to work, so will be picking up a large salad and some form of cooked meat (chicken or turkey) from the local supermarket.

Thoughts: Workouts are going really well, feeling strong and lifting heavy, I just need to get into a good routine with the diet (prep etc) and avoid unnecessary temptation!
