I have been rather busy this week hence no blog since Monday but I will have a quick catch up today.
I broke my fast in one of my favourite places in London. Despite the queue and my busy schedule I decided work could wait an extra few minutes for me so I could enjoy my first Monmouth coffee in a long time.
For the rest of the day I ate the wrong type of food. A sandwich and a piece of cake from Eat for lunch and then in the evening a steak followed by chocolate fondant at The Great House with Fee and Judy. A lovely evening but not a diet day of eating.
I walked round to the market at lunch time and returned once again to the Turkish stall. This lady sits there all day at her little table. In a large tub next to her are pieces of bread dough. She rolls them out using the long thin rolling pin you can see on her lap. Then she places the stuffing over half of it and folds the other half over the top. In this picture she has filled the dough with chicken and onion which is what I had. She then cooks it on the domed hot plate next to her.
I did not plan for today to be the second fast day of the week but it is. When I arrived at the office this morning I felt slightly unwell. I had a headache and felt really bloated and not fancying anything to eat at all. So I just had a cup of tea with milk.
I was meeting Olivia for lunch at Itsu so I headed off early and once there decided to make today a low calorie day and have a light lunch. Itsu considerately list the number of calories beside each dish in their display cabinets.
I had the “Slim Salmon” which had 3 salmon sushi, crab California maki, herb salad, roasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds and edamame beans with sweet chilli dressing and soy sauce. The crab maki are my favourite.
I still feel bloated and uncomfortable which is very strange. So I am having a cup of rooibos tea and an early night.
This was a very easy way to do a low calorie fast day as I am not at all hungry so it has been effortless. But I hope I feel better tomorrow.
