Hello Good Morning!!
What a wonderful weekend!! I attended the wedding of a very good friend of mine. It was lovely! It was a chinese wedding, full of colour and culture, and it was truly a wonderful wedding to be a part of. As far as watching what I ate…I didnt have to! They had sushi!!!!!
I have more excellent news!
I have finally made Blueberry and Spelt Pancakes!! I had to add more milk to the recipe as I found the mix a bit thick. They turned out great.
I made another batch for breakfast in the morning. With the fruit and a little honey, it tasted so good.
I did actually find some amaranth too. But still deciding on a recipe. But I feel confident enough to move on to the next challenge.
Week 6: No low-fat, lite or non-fat food products – Do not eat any food products that are labeled as’low-fat,’ ‘lite’ ‘light,’ ‘reduced fat’ or ‘non-fat’.
This I think will be a lot easier than the last challenge. I don’t usually buy anything labelled non-fat just on principal. For instance, Skim milk?…NO THANK YOU…give me full cream any day.
I have lost another 1.2kg this week. In total I have now lost 7.8 kgs!! (17lbs) So I am back with my usual work out, and routine. I love that I was able to get back on the horse and not give up.
A few people have asked how I am eating differently. So today I will share some of my favourite things to have in my weekly meal plan:
6:40-7:00am, Breakfast – Oat Porridge with blueberries, honey, and flaked almonds. Sometimes I will choose a different fruit. Favourites include bananas, strawberries, and mixed berries. I will also usually have a glass of water or almond milk with it. Of course I will now be adding spelt pancakes to my weekly ritual.
10:00am, Snack – Fruit (usually an apple with cinnamon) or Dried cranberries and nuts (only small serving). Go Natural fruit bar, or a handful of Late July organic chips. Tuna tub. On very rare occasions I will have a Freddo…because I can.
12pm – 1pm, Lunch – Vietnamese Fresh Rolls, Chicken and salad Sandwich, Sushi, Or occasionally, I may have a cheese toasty. Usually tho, it will be left over dinners.
Snack – See above. Although I will never have the same thing twice.
6pm – 7pm, – Dinner – Protein, with 2 serves of veg. Usually. Other times, if others are cooking, I may get fried rice, pasta, apricot chicken etc. In these instances, I like to have a small serving and go for a walk about 30 mins. One of my absolute favourite things ever is grilled salmon. I can never get enough.
Every day I will drink about 1.5-2L of water. Because I have been doing it for so long, if I don’t get enough, I will actually crave it. I tried to have a Pepsi Max the other day, and I couldn’t stomach it. It didn’t feel right at all. Everyone…I am changing!!
Its been so exciting to see my weight drop week after week. Now that I am officially back on track, the weight should drop off a bit quicker.
By the way…24 DAYS UNTIL TAIWAN!!! Im so super excited. It still feels like it’s way in the distance. I can wait to see my little Asian family.
Happy Melbourne Cup Day Australians!
