So one bad night’s sleep and the diet goes to pot 😦 . I just had to start with a coffee. I resisted the croissant
but did have an organic egg and cress sandwich for breakfast from Konditor & Cook. For lunch I went out with a colleague, Kevin. We walked round to Canvey Street which is at Bankside, behind Tate Modern. We decided to eat in Tsuru which specialises in Sushi. I wanted something substantial though so I went for the Teryaki Bento box. It was good.
Having eaten a decent amount we wanted a little something extra so we went for a coffee and a brownie. I did at least share the brownie! I had sweets on the train which I justified (obviously I should never have sweets!) as I was going to play tennis but when I got home it was raining so that was the end of the tennis ambition for the evening.
Dear darling daughter had made us a healthy supper which was amazing. A baked butternut squash, stuffed with mushrooms, onion and garlic. It was fabulous. I confess I did add some butter and black pepper. I was still craving something sweet so I popped this incredibly juicy mango in to the blender. I actually popped about half of it in to my mouth but the rest made it to the blender. With a frozen banana, ripe apricot, fresh coconut pieces and some cashew nuts. Le voila! Mango and apricot soft serve. Deelicious!
I still feel tired and I ate too much food today and moved too little. But at least I ended the day with some nutritious food so not all bad. Tomorrow’s another day which will hopefully be less munchy mungous than today was.
Sigh, I’m reading this as something akin to Water Torture, on day 4 of my sponsored Hunger Week! The sweet craving is horrible, isn’t it? The thought of your mango or that brownie is almost making me salivate…Are you still doing 5:2 fasting?
The sweet craving is sometimes intolerable. It is very hormonal with me. I don’t do the 5:2 fasting no because being told I could have what I wanted 5 days a week meant I wasn’t losing weight!
