I haven't been on this website for so long! Last time I came on I think I was doing the Cambridge. Well, I've done a complete 360 and am now trying not to eat anything processed! I've been doing the 'clean eating' think for a while now, and honestly.. its AMAZING! I have been eating so so much, all gorgeous lovely food, and consistently losing weight each week without even feeling like I'm trying. I have just been trying to focus my diet around fruit (a sugar, I know, but a naturally occurring one which I will still have), vegetables, meat, grains, a tiny bit of dairy, nuts and seeds. No refined sugars
I also had a self-diagnosed chocolate addiction - I got to the point where I would eat 2,3,4 chocolate bars a day. Now I can honestly say that I hardly ever even think about chocolate! I just feel great. It is 100% true that sugar is an addiction, then once you let go of it, it's easier to maintain.
However.. (there's always a however, eh) I fell off the wagon last week. I had lots of events on, which led me to eat out 3 times last week, and I wasn't able to go to the gym. So instead of trying to eat healthy for all my other meals, I had the week off. Thought I would get back into it this week but that just hasn't started. So I thought I would start another little thread on here to mark down what I have been eating and how I'm feeling - hopefully that will get me back on track! I have definitely found that failing to prepare is preparing to fail! So with that in mind, I'm going to try and prepare for the following day the night before. So tomorrow's plan:
Breakfast - Fruit (up really early for work so won't want anything else)
Lunch - big salad with quinoa and roasted sweet potato.
Dinner - Either a big bowl of soup and clean bread, or some chicken and vegetables
Snacks - a boiled egg. celery sticks, some fruit, some homemade nakd bar
Trying to think of more snacks that don't contain as much sugar! Any suggestions are more than welcome and motivational thoughts also welcome, that's what I'm here for!
