Back to work

Yesterday was my first day back at work after being ill last week. It was hard to concentrate all day but I was glad to be back in a ‘normal’ routine!

I’m going back to basics this week in an effort to kick start my weight loss and boost my health. When I’m not feeling well, the temptation is to eat what I think will make me feel better, not necessarily what is healthiest for me. Can anyone honestly say that with a head cold and sore throat, salad is what they fancy? For me it is toast and butter, biscuits and icecream which appeal. And you know what? I ate it! Jumping on the scales last night showed that I had stayed the same since last week, which I was ok with given the circumstances!

But now that I am feeling better I am back on track!

Breakfast this morning was a tub of Total 0% Greek Yogurt with a HEB of cereal, plus a cup of tea. I ate this over the course of about 45 minutes at my desk, between reading emails.

This kept me satisfied through til my (earlier than usual!) lunch at 12.15. As I haven’t yet made it to the supermarket for this week, lunch needed to be bought in the canteen. I went for a granary sandwich (no spread) with chicken, lettuce, cucumber and a little salad cream. I paired this with a bag of Sainsburys BGTY pretzels.

I snacked more this afternoon, on a yogurt, apple and cereal bar, along with another cup of tea!

I love how full I stay when I snack and could never be someone who doesn’t snack!

For dinner tonight I grabbed a jar of low fat curry sauce and added some cooked chicken and fresh spinach. Served with boiled rice this was a quick and tasty weeknight dinner


I popped out to the supermarket after dinner and look what I found!


Looking forward to trying some Pom juice in front of the telly later tonight.
