Today wasn't the best of days. Boyfriend decided to surprise me by taking me out for breakfast. No biggie, I could make good choices. Ended up taking me to McDonalds. Yikes. Lunch was good, but too much snacking and then the boyfriend made frosting and I ate some. Yeah, temptation and me don't go well together.
Tomorrow will be better!
I have uni, 10-5. Here is the plan
Get up at 8am.
Eat half a banana.
Go for a run (30min ish)
Breakfast - Other half of banana and 1 piece of toast with PB
Morning snack - Muesli bar
Lunch - Salad with chicken and feta (my chickpeas are all gone :( )
Afternoon snack: Popcorn
In car, before gym: Trail mix
Go to boxing class. ACTUALLY GO!
Home, sensible dinner and bed.
I'm going to take my gym stuff with me so I won't even go home, so there are no excuses. I'll be a bit early for my class, but I can go on a bike or something until it starts. Extra exercise won't hurt, I'm sure.
I will have an A+ day tomorrow, I will have an A+ day tomorrow...

Today I would give myself an A.
Breakfast: 1 piece of toast with PB
Breakfast 2: Soy vanilla latte. This is where the minus comes from. I have an 8am class, can ya blame me!?
Lunch: Same salad as yesterday (smoked chicken, feta, roasted chickpeas with assorted veg) and popcorn
Snack: 2 lite cruskits with hummus
Dinner (TBC - To be consumed): Baked lamb chop, oven fries and veggies or a salad
Dessert: Mini chocolate bar (Love these. Perfect size for something sweet. But for every one I eat Russell eats 4!)
AND I WENT FOR A RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My first run in 8 months!!!!
And I rocked it!!!!!!!
I kinda followed the rookie 5K your way plan. Kinda.
Plan: 4 intervals of 1 minute running, 4 min walking
Me: 5 intervals of 1.5 - 2 minutes running, 2-3 min walking. 5 minutes walking to warm up and 5 to cool down. I just lost track of time with the running, and by the time I thought it was time to walk I had done more than a minute. I just carried on until the next tidy number (.30 or .00). I also caught my breath quicker than I thought, so didn't use the whole 4 minutes of walking. Its all about going at your own pace!!
I finished 3.3km in 30ish minutes.
I was going to go to boxing tonight, but I CBF. The run was enough and after 4 weeks off I don't wanna push it too much!

If I had to give myself a grade for today it would be a B-. I got up later than I wanted to, but I did have breakfast before I left. At work my workmate decided we would have a bit of a celebration and brought in chocolate pastries for morning tea. I could have said no (well I did say no, but this woman is my work mum and when she told me Sunday was a silly day to start a diet anyways all I could say was 'yes mum'), but I decided to just have one. I still had my salad for lunch and my cruskits for my afternoon tea, so while it wasn't perfect it was still better than usual.
Dinner is steak, egg and chips. I'll have a small piece of steak, and the chips are oven fries, so they aren't too bad. I only eat the whites of the egg (hate yolks unless they are scrambled). I will probably throw a salad on my plate too.
So instead of allowing myself the excuse of 'I'm too busy to make lunches!' I have prepared about 3-4 days worth of salad in advance. Just washed and chopped everything and put it in a big container in the fridge. All I have to do the night before is grab a portion, cut my chicken and feta and I'm good to go!

OK, an accountability thingy of sorts. Here is the plan for tomorrow:
- Get up at 8am so I have time to eat breakfast before work!
- Breakfast - 1 slice of grain toast with 2T of PB (I like my PB, so I track accordingly). This should keep me full until lunch because of the protien, fat and carbs
- Lunch - Salad with baby spinach, cucumber, carrot, roasted chickpeas and smoked chicken with sweet chilli and lime dressing, 1 mini pita with 1T of hummus
- Snack - 2 lite cruskits with hummus.
- Dinner - Whatever my mama cooks, but if it is bad I will just have a small portion and another salad
- Dessert - Mini chocolate bar. Just the one!!!
No working out tomorrow, one step at a time and the first step will be my eating. I will work out on Monday though!
Wish me luck! Or drop by my page and kick my butt.

I just signed up for the Rookie 5K Your Way here on Spark. Time to get back into running! I have a 5K in November and a 6K in December, so I want to get back into running shape!
Back to the Gym on Monday, trying to get back into a good workout routine. 6 months until bikini season!!!!
Going to go shopping this afternoon and get some healthy food. I have vowed to stop buying my lunch out, so I am going to take this opportunity to start making myself nice, healthy lunches for uni and work.
Lets get remotivated. My 1 week off turned into 4 because of illness, mine and Russell's, my holiday and my work roster requiring me to work every hour that the gym was open! Its time to get back on that wagon.
