Sooo, as you can see from the above – I did have a couple of iffy days when it came to nutrition. I tried to make sure I rectified this over the weekend so that the week as a whole ended up being nice and balanced:

annnnnd Voila!! The week was pretty damn good! It’s something that I learned a couple of weeks ago – make sure that the bigger picture is balanced, rather than the tiny little bits that you can’t do much about. So, by looking at the week in a whole, it makes me realize that I have done a pretty good job! It might not be for everyone, but it is working for me. I’m able to ‘forgive myself’ for any little hiccups that happened throughout the week, with the chance to rectify them and keep a balanced diet before the week is out.

I know that next week I am going to start off spot on. I am coming up to my weigh-in/body composition day on Thursday, and it is my only focus right now. After that – luckily Matt has got Friday off so we are taking the chance we have to go and have a lovely brunch! I have kept it a secret where we are going – but I know he is going to LOVE it!!
