This morning my muscles weren't feeling so soar after my workout yesterday… until…

after 1,5 hours behind my desk at work i got up and oh my the stiffness :D

 

So yesterday it seemed like I ate too much fat so I did my best not to have the same results today.

I'm also having a bit trouble with protein intake and today I've been doing some research for protein rich food and I found some snacks I can eat instead of just veggies or fruit. 

Normally I have greek yoghurt for breakfast, but since I'm out I've already put it on my grocery list :) 

 

Today's food:

Breakfast: oatmeal berry smoothie. Instead of using water I used milk

Snack: 1 bellpepper

Lunch: steamed salmon, asparagus and snack tomatoes 

Snack: 125gr blueberries

Dinner: Some cooked mixed veggies and bunnyrabbit meat (I used no fat to bake the meat or cook the vedgies)

Snack: apple slices with pb

 

Fluids:

2 cups of tea

8 glasses of water

1 glass of soda (it was a treat and it was the last bit in the bottle :P )

 

Exercise: 

4,5km walk on an average pace 

 

Today I should've eaten a bit more, but it's sometimes difficult to eat more because the food fills me up pretty good and I simply can't eat more.

 

24062015_zps7bddh5mz.jpg

 

Tomorrow's goals: 

- Workout: Beginner body weight workout, 2 runs

- Eat more protein

- More food intake than today

Yesterday's set goals for today:

- Workout: Beginner body weight workout, 2 runs -> Check! 

- Eat more protein -> Check! 

- More food intake than today -> Check! 

 

My legs were very soar today, I could hardly do steps… I almost decided I'd better go for a walk, but things got a little better and I did the workout anyway. Lunges were the most difficult and I only did 10 per set. To compensate, i did a 30 second plank in my second set.

I'm actually very pleased with myself, because normally, the soarness is an excuse for me to give up :)

 

Food today:

Breakfast: A multigrain tortilla wrap with homemade guacamole, smoked salmon and eggs

Snack: Watermelon

Lunch: Bunnyrabbit meat and lots of veggies

Snack: appleslices with pb

Diner: Tortilla "pizza" with taco filling, mushrooms and an egg sunny side up. 

 

fluids, 8-9 glasses of water, 2 cups of tea

Tomorrow and this weekend there won't be any specific exercise, but i'm not going to sit on my lazy arse :tongue:

I'm also going out for lunch with the colleagues tomorrow and saturday with the bf, so I will have to be extra picky again with what i'm going to eat.

I'm probably not going to update this weekend, we'll see…

Weekends are always the worst when it comes to food, too many carbs, too much fat, not enough protein and over all too many calories.

 

So tomorrow's and this weekend's goal(s):

- Make good lunch choices for tomorrow and saturday

- Not too much carbs

- max 1 alcoholic drink per day (fri, sat, sun)

I did bad… very bad… Someone please give me a slap in the face!

 

last goals:

- Make good lunch choices for tomorrow and saturday check!

- Not too much carbs meh :(

- max 1 alcoholic drink per day (fri, sat, sun) meh :(

 

My first goal wasn't that hard. I think I did quite well on friday: grilled shrimp with a side salad and a small portion of mashed potatoes. Saturday was more of a brunch than lunch, so i didn't do so bad either. Toast with mushrooms, apples, bacon and brie with a salad on the side.

 

The entire weekend I just had too much carbs and too much fat…

temperature's rising here and i had ice cream, we also fried some cassavechips and I had a pudding-filled pastry for breakfast…

 

I had no portion control and my meals were very inconsistent 

As for the alcohol… I did my best but didn't reach the goal…

 

Next weekend I'm going to plan my meals like i do during the week and stay away from all the good stuff in and around my fridge

I'm back :)

I could've done better this weekend, but all in all i'm quite pleased. I had better portion control but I should've drank a bit less.

But I had a very lovely weekend and that's also important. 

 

I'm not losing any weight, but i'm also not gaining. Also I believe my legs are getting firmer.

 

Today's diet

Breakfast: A raspberry smoothie with half a cup of oats, half a cup of milk, half a cup of greek yoghurt 

Snack: half a cup of bell pepper

Lunch: some basmati rice with a homemade chicken skewer marinated in soy sauce, mirin and rice vinegar

Snack: an apple

Dinner: A salad with half an avocado, some roasted bell peppers and baked tuna

Today I didn't really eat enough. My fridge was a bit empty and i just grabbed what i could. I also didn't go for that walk, because I went for groceries instead :)

 

At least my fridge is full again :D

Bought lots of bacon, hell yeah!

 

il_570xN.512265436_dn2k.jpg

 

Today I ate:

Breakfast: a kiwi smoothie with mint which i didn't enjoy, because somehow I put too much mint in it and the whole thing got a bit bitter in the blender, eugh… I'll have to tweak that.

Lunch: a salad with some veggies and half an avocado, 1 whole boiled egg and one egg white.

Snack: an apple

Dinner: Veggies, potatoes and bunny rabbit.

Thank you! It's how i keep things fun I guess (the food pictures)

 

Not eating enough is this very bad habit i developed when i was too focused on losing weight and the thought that "if I eat too much I will gain weight!". 

And now it has the result that I'm sometimes just not hungry enough to eat more. But I'm working on it!

Today was a good day.

I ate enough and i went for a walk. So ding ding ding ding! I win! No virtual butkicks for me!!

 

My walk was a bit rough though. Weather was not so good and the only flat shoes i have that are comfortable enough for walking are my sandals and I didn't wear them because of the weather. So i wore my everyday shoes instead… my sneaker wedges… I do waitressing wearing them, so if I can wear those for that I can also wear them for a 4.6km walk.

 

One word… COBBLESTONES! A lot of 'em!

 

My walk was fine, but it was a bit rough, trying not to break my ankles :)

Luckily I did much better in the kitchen :D

 

Today I ate:

Breakfast: Greek yoghurt with raspberries, flax seeds, chia seed and quinoa puffs

Snack: A boiled egg

Lunch: Boiled potatoes, veggies, bunny rabbit

Snack: A yellow submar… euhm… i mean nectarine

Snack: 2 pieces of mozzarella with some prociutto wrapped around it

Dinner: Salad with gray shrimps, smoked trout, tomato, cucumber, carrots

 

I drank 2 cups of tea and lots of fluids.

Tomorrow is workout day again and if I can eat as good as today and keep that up… it's going to be great :D

Now look at me, not having any alcoholic drinks on a friday night :D

 

I'm having a friday night on my own so there is no boyfriend who wants to eat all the bad stuff. I know, I shouldn't blame him, because I'm the one putting the food in my mouth (… although… he does sometimes :P …)

But, what I wanted to say is that the bad stuff is sooooooo good! And I really can't let him have it all by himself. He's already upset enough that he lost his sixpack :P

 

So, enough of the small talk

What's cooking…

 

Breakfast: A new version of the kiwi smoothie, it tasted better with less mint and some lime juice.

Snack: Mozzarella with prosciutto

Lunch: Homemade chicken salad on 2 ricecrackers, a tomato and a piece of cucumber

Snack: A nectarine

Snack: 3 prosciutto slices

Dinner: Scallops with guacamole and a tortilla wrap cut in chips that I roasted in the oven.

 

I had a few cups of tea and lots of water

 

No exercise today.

 

10072015_zpshabfuv8f.jpg

 

Tomorrow night i'm meeting with a friend and she's cooking. I look forward to it.

I'm not going to count my calories tomorrow, just in case :P

I had no alcohol the entire weekend, apart from the 2 gin tonics I had at my friend's, so I call that a win.

 

Also no exercise, but I did accomplish this :D

Ha yes Aminarra, I stopped using extra oil to bake my meat in and just use the fat that is in the meat. And I also started steaming my fish. Makes a huge difference. 

 

 

 

As for today… I just got home… its 10pm and I haven't had any dinner so I'm very sorry to inform you guys that I have no food pictures today.

I barely reached 1100kcals today:

Breakfast: Greek yoghurt with raspberries, chiaseed and flaxseed

No snack, I had a meeting.

Lunch: leftover dinner and watermelon for dessert 

Snack: Mozzarella with prusciutto

 

I had 2 cups of tea, lots of water and 1 glass of wine.

 

Tomorrow is the last day before my vacation and we are going out for lunch with the colleagues. We're going to eat burgers at this gourmet burger thing. They also offer a "no bun" option, so I'll see what i'm in the mood for :) After that we are going for a bike ride, do some sight seeing I guess :P

The bike is the reason why I'm home so late. I had to get one at my parents house and the tires were flat. Since my parents are on their holiday, I had to go see an acquaintance to get the tires all good again :) It's a bit of a bummer, because I also didn't got to do my workout, but the bike ride will partially make up for it tomorrow :)

 

Also… my boyfriend is moving in with me this weekend, so there will be enough moving around and activity to make up for the lack of activity today :)

just a quick update. I'm on holiday now so there will be less posting and probably (and yes, I should be ashamed) less healthy posts.

 

Last friday I went cycling with the colleagues and I biked about 20km. Enough to "compensate" for the good food and the drinks we had along the way…

I know, I know, it doesn't work that way :) After that I drove to my bf and we had oh so delicious sushi.

 

Saturday was a very lazy day. I had some crackers with homemade crab salad and we had pork and quinoa salad for dinner. No idea if I ate anything else… cant really remember. Also had 2 gin tonics.

 

Sunday was carb day… I had 2 breakfast pastries for breakfast, bread for lunch and very delicious homemade chicken wings with again… bread.

 

Monday we had a bit of moving to do. My bf moved in with me and now my hallway looks like it belongs to a hoarder… I'm serious, how many junk can someone have! I had enough exercise from cleaning his place.

Foodwise was not so good. I started well with bacon and eggs wrapped in a tortilla, but since we were not home, we made a few unhealthy choices. I had raspberries and mellow cakes for lunch (mmmmmm, mellow cakes) and we had 2 bags of oven bake chips and a bottle of prosecco for dinner.

 

The good thing is I didn't gain any weight the past days, but I'm not going to keep up with all this unhealthy food. I can't handle it :)

 

So I'm going to leave those unhealthy days behind me and start well again today. Food pics coming up at the end of the day
