So I seem to of missed the cut of for posting in the Monday Daily Diary so I want to write a post to share how I got on with my first day on my journey to a healthier and happier me!
I started off my day with a 268 Cal breakfast which was made up of Scrambled eggs and grilled tomatoes on sesame seed Ryvita cracker! All washed down with a pint of water. It was a light breakfast but yet I felt satisfied and energised to start the day!
I then went for a swim at our local pool with my boyfriend who used to be in the army so he is really good at motivating me through exercise, making him the perfect partner to do activities with!
My lunch came to 436 Cals which is 16cals over what lunch should of been but I blame the Bagel I had as I couldn't get wholemeal ones. I had 1.5 boiled eggs mashed with 50g of low fat cream cheese, some chopped chives and 25g of smoked salmon all mashed in to make a spread for 1 bagel toasted. It was delicious and was very filling! Once again I washed the whole thing down with a pint of water!
Then the tough part came... I was called into work far earlier than expected meaning I couldn't go ahead with my planned dinner, so I took one of my M&S pasta dishes out from the freezer to have during my break. This pasta dish alone was 678cal so I only ate 452 cals of it as I worked out using my works scales. I also had a slice of water melon meaning my dinner came to 483 in total who new water melon had 33 cals in my slice (not me) Once again another pint of water was also consumed.
When I came home after my 8 hr shift I had a custard pot as a snack which was reduced fat meaning my snacks for the day came to 135!
My total calorie consumption today therefore was 1322! Which is 78 under the daily allowance for women! I never once felt hungry which was what I was afraid of. Also due to sale time fast approaching at my work I was really busy meaning I was constantly moving around and being active for 7/8 hours!
I can honestly say I feel hugely positive about this whole planning my meals thing and I am determined to make sure every day is like today!
