She’s Done It Again

Another day of fasting, another success.  yes, amazingly I managed 500 calories today.  I did find it really difficult, mainly I think because I felt so tired after my lovely weekend.

I went for the same strategy as before i.e. eat nothing all day and save the calories for supper.  I was in the office near Borough Market so I popped out at lunch time for some wheatgrass and to choose some lovely veggies for dinner.  Forgetting that most of the market is shut on a Monday :-(.

Market closed

When I discovered a few hardy stall holders braving the elements, I realised I had left my purse in the office so went back empty handed.  Disappointed about no Monmouth – black of course!Borough Market and Cathedral

For dinner tonight I had 250g of this chick pea and lentil dahl with 100g broccoli.broccoli and dahl

Served over 180g brown basmati rice.  It seemed like a huge plateful and I will go to bed tonight feeling very full.rice, dahl and broccoli

I calculated my calories perfectly tonight.

Waitrose Love Life – Brown Basmati Rice, 180 g (cooked) 219 41 2 7 1
Waitrose – Prepared Tenderstem Broccoli, 100 g 38 2 1 4 2
Geo Organics – Organic Chick Pea & Lentil Dahl, 250 g 243 35 6 12 5
TOTALS 500 78 9 23 8

What a result.  Another result is that I lost another 2 pounds so I am very happy, particularly after my weekend’s excessive eating 🙂

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)

    Bravo again on the new release to The Universe of 2 more pounds and counting. Zig Zagging the calories works. The increase on the weekend and now fasting today just gets the body out of its comfort zone and into burning extra calories at a more regular rate.
