Saturday - Breakfast: Porridge with berries, chia & flax. Lunch: Chicken & feta salad with baked beans (random I know!) Dinner: Wagamamas chicken katsu curry (asked for brown rice but they'd ran out) & shared a few starters. White chocolate & ginger cheesecake for dessert. Snacks: Greek yoghurt & peach. Tried the lotus spread on a rice cake (yum!) and ended up eating a Toffee Crisp biscuit & Gordon's cinnamon swirl. (Sorry Gordon...)

Sunday - Breakfast: Porridge with peaches, blueberries, chia & flax. Lunch: Greek yoghurt with peaches & flax. (The paintballing place only served burgers so I came prepared!) Dinner: Stopped at a carvery on the way home so opted for turkey & piled my plate with veg. Snacks: Banana, Nakd bar, Greek yoghurt with honey.


After an emotional breakdown at PT (slight over reaction to a 1% increase in body fat but my head was in a crappy place with it all!) I have finally managed to cut the crap. It's not perfect but definitely getting better - my belly isn't so bloated & sore and I'm not having a late night binge every day! Trying not to put so much pressure on myself as it ends up being all I think about & just makes me eat even more. This week I've been obsessed with peaches. They're in season so the shops are full of them - they're all juicy and amazing! Also think I should have shares in Fage Total 0% Greek yoghurt...

  4. Oh wow your breakfast looks delicious, and I don't even like avocado! I've just signed up for the gym and I'm not sure whether I want to just work out on my own for a bit to build up my strength before joining any classes. I do want to try the spin classes but I don't want to dive in a the deep end. They also have a climbing wall so I need to get myself all trained up for that because it's so much fun!
