Ok, so last week wasn't too bad but I thoroughly failed the challenge! However, as I said in my report, it helped me focus my mind again which is probably the most important thing.
This week, I laid off the size of the challenge and cut it back to staying within my calories on a daily basis and making one healthy recipe this week which I haven't made before.
Now, there are certain things that are going to be a given, which I aim for every day regardless, and these are:
At least 5 F & V per day
At least 2 litres of water per day
So any challenges are on top of that.
And so far? I've failed!!! *rolleyes*
I'm a bit behind on my blogging so I'm not going to bore you with 4 days of food, but I had a little bit of a wobble yesterday involving chocolate cornflake buns - was only 30 cals over and am still well inside for the week, but it was a fail nonetheless! Ah well, I shall carry on regardless.
I already know what my recipe is going to be and I have decided I am going to try out one of these Green Monsters I am hearing so much about. I think they sound vile and cannot get my head around them, but so many people love them so they can't all be wrong. I shall let you know how it goes!
Anyway, hopefully get back to posting my food tomorrow. Oh, and another thing new I am trying as of tomorrow morning is flaxseed - I bought finely milled stuff and have put it in my pancake mix which I just made a batch of, looking forward to trying it though kind of horrified at the calorie count given how much they are telling you to eat each day! Shall report back on that too!
