Sunday Weigh In 4

It's now been 4 weeks since starting my new healthy lifestyle I decided that each Sunday I will post up my progress, whether successful or not in the hope that it encourages me to stay positive and keep going.  Knowing that I will be sharing it all here will hopefully keep my willpower up!  In order for me to keep track and look back for ideas, I will be listing my food diary here as well (and who knows, it might inspire others to have a go too!)  It also gives me somewhere to put all the photos of the yummy food I love to take as it always looks so good!

This week I am determined to make extra effort following my poor attempt last week due to illness and a weekend away!  I even managed to resist Krispy Kreme at the airport in London!!

Monday: 

Breakfast - I made an emergency breakfast today as we were so unorganised after arriving back late last night.  I put two eggs on to boil while I got ready and took them with me to work, stopping off at Greggs on the way to get a brown roll and mushed the eggs into it when I got to work, no butter, apple & raspberry juice.
Lunch - Again, unorganised so I stopped off at Lidl on my way back at lunch to grab some good stuff (willpower is easy when I have all you guys backing me!  :) ) and made a brown seeded sandwich with chicken tikka pieces, hummous, red pepper and lettuce and a mini sandwich with the same but tomato instead of pepper, glass of skimmed milk, quavers.
Dinner - Tomato & Basil Soup, seeded brown bread, skimmed milk
Snacks - 1 apple, raspberries, 1 sharon fruit, Pepperami mini (38 calories & 6% of my GDA of Sat Fat), skimmed milk, raspberry yoghurt, kiwi berries

Exercise - 1 hour walking, 30 mins swimming (46 lengths)




Tuesday:

Breakfast - 1 portobello mushroom, 1 slice brown seeded toast, 2 boiled eggs, 1 veggie sausage, orange juice

Snacks - snack a jacks sweet chilli crunchy curls (yummy!), fruit box (melon, kiwi, apple, blueberries), vanilla yoghurt, king prawns with a tiny amount of naughty dip (forgot my chilli sauce), tomato & basil soup, apple, pear & plum juice, 

Exercise - 1 hour walking, (totally shattered so no swimming)

Cinema Snacks - I decided to give this its own heading as I was a little bad and had pick 'n' mix but I did sneak in my own sparkling water and wotsits to resist the fizzy drinks, popcorn and crisps!

Exercise - 1 hour walking




Thursday:

Breakfast - smoked salmon & 2 scrambled eggs, 1 slice wholemeal seeded toast, orange juice
Lunch - cajun chicken baked potato, side salad (no dressing), coleslaw, water - in the gym and it was not nice.  I had planned on leaving the coleslaw but the cajun chicken was so spicy and not tasty so I left most of that and had the coleslaw with the potato.
