Not a great deal to say about Sunday. I began the day with a 3.5 mile jog, took part in a cookery class and tackled my ironing mountain.
Good morning and welcome to another week of #April #Accountability#check #in
Here is your #daily #checkin for #Monday 3 April 2017.
Yesterday I was enrolled on a cookery course. I use the word 'cookery' loosely as it was actually a sushi making class and there was not as much cooking as on others I have taken.
I love food and I am a fairly competent cook. I once talked myself into whipping up a batch of cakes during my hour lunch break, which includes a ten to 15 minute drive each way, just to prove that it could easily be done.
I rarely buy ready made meals and, in the main, I think that my meals are healthy. That's what made this WOE something I could see as a long term solution to my weight management. I could choose to eat what I'd always done, only less of it. When I began, FD's always started with porridge no lunch. Dinner was lean meat and salad or vegetables.. A colleague has chosen to have porridge twice a day and others might choose ready meals or even shakes. It's all about finding what works for you.
Over time I have stopped having breakfast on my FD's and I save my daily calories for an evening meal. I have looked at my portion sizes (still haven't quite recovered from learning that 2 sausages was a portion) and I have attempted to limit the #snackfest moments.
I think I still have a way to go in terms of learning to understand and manage my cravings and bad habits but I am happy to continue to experiment.
Monday is my usual weigh in day and I am a pound down from last Monday (3 pounds heavier than my last time at my lightest weight (3 February)
I believe that this is most likely as a result of the carbs I ate yesterday. The food I ate during my morning cookery course was inevitably going to mess with my no snack plan and I couldn't resist the bread as I made my OH a bacon sandwich when I returned home.
A couple of people have already commented on my lists. I am interested in any observations/suggestions.
Have a great week everyone.
