Its been over a week!
I thought I had more time!!! But once again I have failed to find the Amaranth and Spelt. this last fortnight has seen me search high and low in every supermarket ever!! The only thing I have found is amaranth protein crackers…not sure if this counts. Looking online, I have found spelt pasta, breads, and flour!! WOOHOOO I love pasta!! Why cant they provide these in normal stores. However I will be definitely looking at purchasing the flour and pasta to try. Yay for online shopping!! Also I found a recipe for spelt pancakes. OMGoodness, they look amazing!!! Another week on this challenge until I can move on I think. But I promise that by next Monday I will have made these babies and I will have some pics to prove it…I may have to give those amaranth crackers a try.
So this weeks weight loss was only 200g. But Im slowly getting back on track. I WILL NOT GIVE UP!!!…queue the inspirational meme…
One thing I have noticed is that I am more prone to binging when I’m bored. There is a very fine line between boredom and hunger. Especially on Sunday night. You don’t want a late night because you have work in the morning, so you spend the time traipsing between the fridge and the pantry. Unfortunately the fridge isn’t like Facebook where every time you log in, there is something new to look at. So I am finding that I am needing something to do during these times. Keeping busy or occupied with something tends to do the trick.
I’m sure most of you know about the adult colouring books which are hitting the market. Its probably just a phase but let me tell you, they work! It helps me to just chill for a while. For a moment I am brought back to my days in school when choosing which colour pencil to use was my biggest challenge. It definitely helps me to avoid food as way of coping with boredom and life problems. Yes I totally recommend it. You can find them at your local newsagent or in major supermarkets.
This was a seahorse I did. I love it!!!! So find your inner child and get on the colouring bandwagon.
This week will also see me return to the gym. It has been a few weeks due to some unforseen circumstances, and I would have to say this has greatly impacted on the success of my weight loss. One does not simply lose weight and not do exercise. By gradually integrating it into my routine, I hope it will become a permanent lifestyle change.
I’m actually a little excited about it.
Ciao for now
