Activity – 90 minute bike ride
Today was a mix up of a day – a lovely day, a WW challenge of a day.
Woke, ate a banana and the went for a long ride.
Had a lunch catch up with the girls, S, R, J, R, J & M, because M was back in town for the weekend @ Hellenic republic, lunch was delicious, but very high in WW points, the food there is quite healthy, but not what you would call low in calorie.
we shared the usual 3 dips, taramasalata, tatziki, eggplant with bread and also some saganaki with figs. for main we had chicken on the spit with slow cooked lamb and freekah salad and green beans and the for sweets we shared this delicious semolina filo pastry thing.
I was so so full, I didn’t eat dinner, however this itself lead to issues as when I got home at 11.30pm as I was a little peckish and ended up eating 2 slices of toast with honey and then some “weetbix” , late night snacks are not great 😦
Also the feast or famine style of eating that I did today – is NOT good, I need to eat regularly through the day……..
But at the end of the day – I cant beat myself up too much as todays eating pattern was not planned – it’s just the way it turned out, I went out for lunch which ended at 4pm, I went to a movie from 6.50 to 9.30. Until after the movie I was not hungry at all, I was trying to listen to my body and only feed it when its hungry, rather than eating because its time , so by 9.30 when I was getting peckish I thought, lets see if I can ride it out until morning unfortunately after a catch up at a friends and getting home at 11.30 I could no longer ignore my rumbling stomach and I fed it. My only issue with myself is that I should have stopped at the toast – the weetbix was over kill
Overall, I am ok with it all, as I have decided to relax my food stance for a week or so, going into maintenance mode – keeping my weight stable over this period and then on the 4th of July I will get back into it at 100% and go hard for another 8 weeks until the celebration of my day of birth – hoping that I can get down to the low 80’s by then!
until next time
