So it's the first day of posting what I eat. After a busy weekend, today is rest day (exercise wise) so no gym for me and just some walking.
I was in work early but started the day as I had intended, largely due to the fact I had everything I could ready the night before.
Food and Drinks:
Breakfast: first thing I had lemon, ginger and hot water followed a little later by scrambled eggs with mushrooms and spinach (2 eggs, 2 eggs whites, large handful of spinach and plenty of mushrooms).
Morning snack: a green smoothie with a teaspoon of spirulina powder added
Lunch: tomato and lentil soup and an apple
Afternoon snack: lightly roasted nuts and kale crisps
Dinner: bolognese made with a mixture lean beef and turkey mince and bulked with mushrooms and onion with some steamed cauliflower, broccoli and spinach. The Bolognese was similar to the one I used for my savoury pancake stack
Evening snack: frozen grapes - these are a fab as taste a bit like sorbet. I sometimes even blend them so they form a sorbet.
Water: 2 litres
Other drinks: 2 mugs of decaf tea with skimmed milk and 2 mugs of herbal tea
Organised for tomorrow: gym kit, soup for lunch and snacks
Exercise and Walking
Walking: 30 mins
Exercise: None, rest day
Relaxation and Sleep
Relaxation: 30 mins soaking in the bath
Bed time: 10.15pm
Estimated hours of sleep: 7 hours
Before bed I always eat a few walnuts and take a magnesium supplement. I also sleep with a black out blind and sleep mask and use a pulse aromatherapy oil made of relaxing oils.
Overall I was quite pleased with the day. I would have preferred to have got to bed earlier and also made time for some meditation
