I'm back again. I've had an insanely busy month with my job. Thankfully I'm finally getting some time off and time to get back to taking care of me. Today I'm starting a new diet. I really hate to use the word diet but I don't see myself keeping this meal plan up forever. A friend of mine has been on this while she's been doing a bootcamp style training thing and she has lost an amazing amount of weight. So I've decided to give it a try! So here is the plan:
Breakfast: 2 Slices of McCambridge bread which is a very dense wholewheat bread with either 1 scrambled egg or 2 slices of smoked salmon.
Mid Morning Snack: 2 Oatcakes with peanut butter or one piece of fruit, or carrots and hummus.
Lunch: Brown Rice, Quinoa, Cous Cous or Brown Pasta plus Veg & Protein
Mid Afternoon Snack (If its a workout day): 20g of nuts, a few pieces of cold meat/fish, seeds, or 100g yogurt.
Dinner: No Carbs or Root Veg. 2-4 dinners a week are salads.
No eating after dinner! If hungry have a small spoon of peanut butter.
Other general rules for the diet include: Nothing white (processed), no junk, no cereals, no soft drinks.
So this morning I had two slices of the McCambridges bread with a scrambled egg. It was a little bit dry so tomorrow I'll try adding a bit of butter to it and see if it helps. For my snack today I'm going to try the oatcakes (never had them before) with peanut butter. For lunch its brown rice with sugar snaps and prawns. No mid day snack for me as I'm not working out today. And dinner is still up in the air. Though a salad does sound very nice.
I get the feeling I'm going to find myself hungry for the next few days while I adjust to the new diet. But I'm really excited to be doing it.
Hope everyone else is doing well!

My birthday was last Friday, my husband's birthday is today and our wedding anniversary is on Friday. We call it the Week of Awesome. In previous years its also been the week of gluttony. But this year we're trying to do it differently. We're going for a healthier week of awesome this year. Ok, sure we've had Teppanyaki and Chinese take out. But we're going with healthier options there. When we went to Teppanyaki I had prawns and salmon instead of steak or duck which were also options. We're not restricting ourselves from anything we want to have. Instead we're making small changes to them to make them healthier.
The wonderful news is that my seeds arrived! I'm finally going to start the garden I've been dreaming of. Onions, peppers, tomatoes, strawberries, aloe vera, and my favorite the Kale (Cabbage) Walking Stick. The most unfortunate news is that the dirt in our yard is dead. So I'm going to be on the lookout for people giving it away. I'll be starting them this weekend. The garden is not only going to provide me with tasty and healthy foods, save my wallet, but its also going to be part of my workout routine. We hope to expand it every year. Who knows, maybe we will eventually stop buying most of our fruits and veggies. We would need a greenhouse to grow some of the things we like to eat. But if we do well with our gardening then it is certainly an option.
