Gosh it’s cold outside today! It feels really freezing cold here in my little corner of England. Not ultra cold by global standards perhaps but I am really struggling to stay warm tonight. I will be heading to my cosy bed when I have posted this as it may be the only way I can warm up.
Breakfast was a bowl of citrus goodness. 2 pink grapefruit and 2 oranges, which packs in a lot of vitamins which are needed at this time of year to help boost immunity. At lunch time I spent some of my Christmas money on some new clothes (a sweater and a long sleeved top for work) and then popped in to Pure for a takeout. I have not had this before and it was very tasty. I was feeling hungry so I had a bread stick with it as it is very light. Pretty good and it felt really healthy and nutritious. For supper I made a smoothie with some kale from the garden, 4 bananas and some frozen raspberries, with a glug of almond milk. Topped with some coconut. It was good but not enough as I was still hungry. So I had some dates with almonds, cashews and walnuts. Not many and served in a small bowl, rather than bringing out the whole bag, so I don’t overeat as they are high in fat and I really want to be losing weight.
I am really pleased how I did today with my eating but I haven’t managed to walk my steps – 8,200 so far. I will try and do a walk tomorrow lunch time to get the exercise increased.
