I am usually quite well organised for food on a Monday which makes losing weight so much easier. The fridge has plenty of leftovers and I have the time on a Sunday to make up lunch for the next day.
I made breakfast at home before I set off for London; egg fried rice with onions and kale.
331 Calories. At lunch time today I set off on a walk. I must do at least a mile a day so I walked along Southwark Street to one of my favourite coffee shops. The allure was too strong to resist so I popped in, ordered a black coffee and took a seat. I love their mission statement. Since I was having my coffee black they recommended a slightly lighter and sweeter bean from El Salvador than the beans they usually make lattes and cappuchinos with. I found a paper which explained more about my coffee which was interesting. It has been far too long since I visited Monmouth and it was great to be back. I chose to walk back along the river. The North shore was almost black with cloud but I was walking in sunshine.
It made for a very dramatic view towards the other side of the river. The River Thames is so wide at the point where it flows through this magnificent capital city of ours. Back at the office I tucked in to the roast chicken salad I had brought from home. I had about half a chicken breast, 1/4 of an avocado, 6 olives and plenty of green and red veggies. No dressing required.
442 calories.Total calories today was 1,305. I earned 140 calories by walking a mile on top of the 1,200 I am allowed each day. So I ended the day with 35 to spare. A good day of eating and a lovely walk at lunch time with a very enjoyable coffee as a bonus.
