My food management journey

Daily? record of my food management journey to see if I can learn more strategies for effective management of my food consumption

Days 6 and 7

Hmm, I am getting confused with my days, but I didn't blog yesterday, so I must have 2 days to cover?? Should have put a day of the week against the number.

Re my last post, I felt fine the next day (yesterday?) after the mid evening snack.

Furthermore, I am pleased with myself after yesterday re my food management. I might ask Pernelle to give me a halo I think, for the challenge.

I had something very upsetting happen in the afternoon (won't go into details) and my usual reaction would be to have some chocolate.. But somehow I managed to keep focusing on my actual hunger and whether I really fancied the chocolate, which I didn't. So I didn't have any. Mini miracle. I did have some cottage cheese mid evening, but was happy with that decision. I did have some red wine too, but that was before dinner and I was happy with that decision too.

This morning I felt good about the choices I had made yesterday. (Salmon salad - lots of veg - with avocado, quinoa, sultanas and walnuts plus a slice of whole grain bread and butter for lunch, frozen strawberries for a snack, chicken and lots of veg followed by an orange for dinner - plus the wine and cottage cheese.) It's a fast day today, and I am not really in the mood, but am sticking with it, I have made it to mid afternoon. Kept busy this morning and now have the cleaning to do. Yuck. Am just having a coffee first while I write this.

Goal reached December 2013, weight loss strategy 5:2, weight management strategy is eating a wide range of (mainly) whole foods but am back to following 5:2 for a while. Main eating challenge is the evening munchies! :razz:
