That 45th Food Diary…

With my family now gone and the start of actual real full-time work – I have really had to be on my toes with my nutrition. Prepping was absolute key this week to ensure that I had all of my meals ready to take with me to the office and ensure that I don’t fall of the wagon in the typical office environment (you’ll be glad to hear I turned down AMAZING chocolate brownies on Thursday).

Being at work for the latter half of the week has had it’s perks when it comes to my food intake. I haven’t been sat at home bored so mindlessly snacking, and having everything planned out means it all kind of just slots into place.

Follow me on My Fitness Pal – I’m still posting every single day so have a look at the details of my meals online.

Another week down…and I feel really positive about this one. I’ve followed the food plan as close as I could, and my only ‘treat’ was a Quest Bar on Friday (and I didn’t even enjoy that). Some of the portions seem big to be, but I don’t think I split them down enough according to the Bikini Body Guide plan. I always seems to have 2 portions of grains together rather than splitting them up – so that might be something to give a go so that I have 4 or 5 small meals rather than 3 meals and a couple of snacks. I’ve prepped my lunchtime salads into two halves now, so this means I am still eating the right amount of foods, but I am splitting it down (meaning 4 small meals a day – yay!!)

Next week is all about carrying on with the plan! I haven’t had an ‘off-day’ this week, so I am planning to go a little off plan on Friday and possibly not track my food (but I’ll probably end up changing my mind on that when the time comes). We’ll see. It’s all about the balance at the end of the day so we’ll see how it goes.
