ON FIRE AGAIN

Hi all,

I've had a fantastic day today and am now 100% back on track and ready to take on the world :-)

I did 2 fill-in classes at my old gym this morning and really enjoyed teaching again. It was nice to be made so welcome by many of my old clients and I had some newbies that gave me good feedback too. The fact that I burned 700+ cals was just the icing on the cake ... speaking of which I have a theory/idea that I've put to Liz and am hoping for a positive response before I post about it.

Food has been great today. I was out grocery shopping and stopped in at my local cafe for a skim cappuccino (I believe in supporting my local businesses LOL). On the counter was the usual jar of almond finger biscuits that I absolutely love. I looked at them but was not the least bit tempted to have one. I had my coffee and that in itself is progress for me again.

I'm now also better organised for food. Part of Friday's binge was a result of being bored with eating the same thing too many times in a row and also being a bit hungry from too small a serve. So now I have some variety in my food and my portion sizes are correct. It helps that the fridge is bursting at the seams with veges and we have a variety of protein sources to choose from. Oh and I'm vowing right here and now that I WILL NOT eat food that I dont enjoy just because its healthy/good for me/on hand. There is a brand and flavour of tuna that will not pass my lips again thanks to a yucky experience with it on Friday. Enough said.

I'm feeling a bit bloated through the middle as I've been chucking down gallons of water but there hasnt been the reciprical exiting at the other end. Oh well, it'll come when its ready and then hopefully the Metal Monster wont be too cruel LOL.

So mentally I'm in the right head space to have another awesome week. Next weekend will be tough with 3 major social events but I'll deal with those when they arrive. Right now its back to the task at hand and thats to make Monday magnificent.

Cheers all

Magda

Hi Magda,
I am hearing you on the eating a good variety of food. I find I'm also tempted to go bananas when I'm bored with what I'm eating as well. Eating enough is also key as you say - I find sometimes I drop it a bit low, and the bingebeast rears up again too.

Today I tried something different with my chicken and salad, and made it into rice paper rolls. I'd had the rice paper rounds in the pantry for (what seems like) years (probably) but finally made some today. They were awesome. And I really didn't feel like plain chicken and salad, but I didn't want to eat crap either. It was a good compromise. I even make some for hubby.

It's great to read your blog, as I really relate to just about everything that happens in it!!
Cheers Carolyn :)

Thanks Fern.

Hi Carolyn, today I had my chicken done tandoori style (marinated in tandoori paste + low fat yogurt and BBQed) with salad. It was delicious. I've also made some chilli from roo mince, various veges and Masterfoods Mexican chilli sprinkle. Thats yummy too. Life is too short to eat boring / bland food.

Thanks Cat. Trying hard.
