So I went to the pet store and weighed myself on Thursday. Then spent thurs and fri in bed with a migraine. Saturday was a bit full on so on Sunday I went grocery shopping. I spent $130 on fresh food. I pledged to do No Junk January for the remainder of the month.
So Sunday I made fruit salad, prepped veggies for steaming through the week, made a bunch of ready-to-go salads for work and marinated a few bags of lean chicken breast for cooking pretty much straight from the oven.
I also made breakfast muffins. Which are damn yummy but a bit fiddly to make. So i doubled the batch to last longer. Recipe to follow.
After spending the day on the kitchen, i had nothing for dinner and no cooking mojo. So i had lasagne. It was cheesy and greasy and altogether... a bit too much. But its gone now.
Today i did well. Breakfast muffin for brekky. Fruit salad for morning tea, salad for lunch, fruit salad for arvo tea, almonds to nibble on. I had steak out for dinner, but i was ravenous when i got home and it world take too long to cook, so i had an extra snack of white corn tortilla chips and dip.
I know, I know. Tortilla chips? I had them already, they were open and they were there. I thought the basil dip would be ok. Then i checked the label. 34% fat. Fail.
Again. Something I already had.
So dinner was a delicious steak, some oversteamed veggies and mashed sweet potato with abouta tablespoon of butter to bring it together.
And fuck me, but eating healthy today was hard work.
