Yesterday I met with the nutritionist, for our 3rd meeting, and Well, she taught me how to manage my immense chocolate cravings that I get - Said to buy a bag of mini snickers and store them in the freezer.. Well I'm having an emotionally started craving, and I can't even find them in the freezer it's that jammed packed hahaha.
But regardless, I got all inspired and wrote out a beautiful meal plan for 1500 calories, with a low gi counterpart of morning tea and afternoon tea (to keep that blood sugar level stable) and then.. when I got home I looked for a pretty format to write it on, I'm delighted to share this (I found it on the net): (it has morning tea, afternoon tea slots)
It also has morning and afternoon exercise which I find exciting.. Pre-planning is the way to go I tell you :) Just trying to find some more activities I can do in a group at the moment.
I kept to my food list today pretty much except for 2 biscuits.. :/
but what I'm really joyful about is I figured out a way to preplan water intake that works for me! I won a drink bottle as you know... and it's BPA free.. ooh lovely. However, It's 550ml which is just plain confusing.
Last night I bought 3 more of these 750ml bottles:
Note they have different colours for the flavour, I just re-use them as water bottles, cos they are so hardy AND you can easily screw the cap off and drink lots at a time...
They are 750ml (3 glasses each) x 4 bottles = 3 Litres,
which is what you should drink if exercising, 2 Litres if not.
(Note I use NZ spelling, I haven't make a spelling mistake yet)
So that way I can line them up in the morning... Pop one in my bag... .see if I can get to the purple one by evening.. etc =)
I'm on my third bottle now, which is easy to figure out .. as my 8th Glass :)
We like simple :)
