That 34th Food Diary…

For full foodie details, remember you can follow me on My Fitness Pal

Week 2 in Abu Dhabi has been another great one for us. We’ve been sticking to our eating plan; a nice healthy breakfast after the gym in the morning, a small lunch (well, for me at least) and a good portion-controlled dinner (as we are eating in the hotel Sunday-Thursday so I don’t exactly know whats going into all of the foods).

I have been switching out the fruit that I was having at lunch for a protein shake, as the protein levels in my day have been pretty low. Hopefully it will help in the long run!

I also allowed myself my rest day, with food supplied in the form of another beautiful Iftar. This one was at Yas Viceroy, and it was absolutely incredible! Does Ramadan really have to end in a couple of weeks?? I’ve really enjoyed the breaking of the fast with Matt’s new colleagues and families, and everyone getting to know each other. A full write up of the evening will be coming tomorrow!

And that’s that for the week! Not too bad – but I know I can do so much better.

I think I am going to try and improve my breakfasts by cutting out the sausages each day (I’ll do it with a tear in my eye lol) and that’ll remove some of the bad fats from my diet that I don’t necessarily need. Considering everything though, I think we’re doing OK!

On to week three – let’s see what this holds for us!! It’s someone’s birthday so we are going to be heading out for that next weekend, and me and Matt are heading for Iftar at Le Meridien Abu Dhabi on Friday to give that one a go. We’re very excited!!
