801010rv Day 2

I have stuck to the eating plan of 80101rv today but I found it harder today.  I didn’t want to eat bad food but I really wanted something cooked.  Sticking to raw all day was the challenge of my day but I worked through it and now feel pleased with myself.

A simple fruit salad for breakfast made with a banana, 2 kiwis, 1 large orange and some black grapes.fruit salad 1 I enjoyed this but not as much as the citrus salad I had yesterday.  It was not quite enough to get me through to lunch so I had an apple late morning.fruit salad 2-4-15 For lunch I enjoyed chopping lots of vegetables in to cubes.  I was inspired by an Instagram account I follow, called ALKALINESISTER, to actually look up how to handle a knife like a chef.  Such fun!diced veg in salad I made my salad with half a tub of rocket topped with diced fennel, celery, carrots and red pepper, plus some purple sprouting broccoli and half an avocado.  I managed to not add any salt or pepper or seasonings.  Just pure, whole, unprocessed vegetables.diced veg salad I mashed it all together so the avocado acted as a dressing  This was most enjoyable and kept me going until supper time.rocket salad Dinner was meant to be a strawberry banana ice-cream.  I made it with 4 frozen bananas, strawberries and a kiwi plus 1 scoop (21g) of vegan warrior protein powder.  The protein powder is not part of the 801010 diet plan but I just felt I wanted to add it so I did.IMG_9220 But the proportion of fresh strawberries and a kiwi to frozen banana was wrong so it came out more like a smoothie.strawberry smoothie 2-4-15 It tasted good though and was a very easy supper.smoothie 2-4-15

I have drunk various herbal teas today including rooibos, green and peppermint and liquorice plus a black coffee and one black tea with soya milk.  I also had a glass of water infused with orange and strawberries which is so refreshing.

Scores on the doors today are:

Total calories consumed: 1,240
Calories burned with exercise: 0

% of calories consumed:
Carbohydrates: 78%
Fat: 10 %
Protein 12%

Almost perfect ratios but the big fail today was the absence of exercise so I will make that a priority tomorrow.

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 :-)
