That 35th Food Diary…

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

Well, this week started well. Just a shame it didn’t quite finish off the same way. We had an Iftar to go to on Friday, a birthday night out on Saturday and then we went to the water park & dinner today (Sunday) so it all went a little pete tong! It hasn’t quite been the 80/20 split that I generally try and stick to – but all I can do now is look on to next week and make those improvements.

Because I’m not able to properly log food (as most of the time I’m not cooking it myself) I’m not going to put the macro split down as I can’t really rely on My Fitness Pal to be logging the right things, as I am pretty much guesstimating calorie content. Once we’re into our apartment and I’m cooking from scratch again, I’ll be able to put it back up with confidence that it’s going to be right.

Oh bloody nora. 

How ridiculous is some of that?! It totally shows how once you fall off the wagon, you can just keep on falling!

Me and Matt are both in agreement that we need to get back into a routine of eating well. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in days out and friends coming over and whatever else, and then completely losing it with food control. Obviously the exercise that we are doing is helping to combat it, but no amount of exercise can undo a bad diet, so we need to sort ourselves out!
