Hi to all my lovely forum friends. Welcome to Tuesday's Daily Diary. Hope you all managed to stay on plan on Monday and have planned your meals for today. Planning for me is vital for keeping me on track. If I don't then I find myself staring into the fridge when I'm hungry and then making completely the wrong choices and wolfing down whatever's to hand and throwing me completely of track.
If you're new to the DD and not sure how to go about it then look at how everyone else logs their food and follow their lead. Just remember to say how many calories are in each meal, tot up your total and tell us what your calorie budget is for the day. Also tell us what exercise, if any, ( a lot of us cannot exercise for a variety of reasons) you have planned and if you have any tips that others may benefit from then please share them too.
Please comment on at least one other post, preferably the one just in front of you but feel free to comment on as many as you wish. It's always encouraging when we see people commenting on our posts and helps to keep us all motivated.
My hubby and I have been babysitting for our grandson today and had a delicious mint and pea soup which my daughter left for us and with all the running around after Ted logged up almost 8,000 steps! Proof that you don't have to do a specific exercise!
My plan for today is;
Brunch - My favourite at the moment - Smoked salmon, wilted spinach, avocado, cherry tomatoes and scrambled eggs - 269 cals
Snack - An orange, and a handful of mixed nuts - 241 cals
D - Persian veggie Pilaf with saffron, blueberries and borlotti beans ( from my new JO super food book) followed by strawberries and Full fat Greek yoghurt - 641 cals
Drinks - water, black tea and one full fat milky coffee - 160 cals
Total of - 1,311 cals from a range of between 1,174 - 1,510
Exercise - walking in the park
Tip - If you're stuck for what to eat then check out the recipe thread. IndigoBlue61 has made it so much easier to navigate now, having put all the recipes into specific catagories.
By the way I love kale. especially crisped up by roasting in the oven.
Wishing you all a very happy Tuesday.
Onwards and Downwards!
