I have lost count of how many fast days I have done now but I am definitely in the swing of them. It was freezing cold again this morning but sunny and bright which is lovely for walking in.
I walked many miles today as I had some errands to run at lunch time in the City plus in the afternoon we had a meeting in another office which was another opportunity to walk. It was lovely being outside today.
I was wondering how to fill my blog today with the meagre rations I was allowed to eat so I just looked around. There is so much history in the City and significant events are remembered with these beautiful ceramic blue tiles which are placed on the outside of buildings.
At lunch time I called in at pod for a protein box. I was feeling really hungry and thought that would keep me feeling full for ages.
It was delicious and definitely satisfying. There was salmon mixed with dill, one and a half boiled eggs, prawns with fresh mint and red chilli which was a surprisingly good combination and sesame chicken. Really enjoyable.
The protein pot worked very well and I lasted the day with no cheating:-)
In the evening I had about 150 calories left so I rummaged round the fridge and pulled out some fruits and vegetables: half a pink grapefruit, 1 celery stick, 1 large broccoli floret, some button mushrooms and a Gala apple.
According to MFP, I had 458 calories today so I am under my total. I can’t be bothered to chop anything else up though! I am astonished at the sodium content of my protein box and thinking it is probably the prawns and salmon. The main thing is I ate healthy food and stuck to my 500 calories a day limit so I go to bed happy.
