Food Journal DAY 22
Another healthy (but very busy and on the run) day today! =D I managed to eat very cleanly, aside from 2 choc chip biscuits I had at work because I ran out of food and was hungry! I’ve had a few people telling me on tumblr that I should eat more food…And seriously? Are you kidding me? Everyone’s body likes a different amount of food =) If I eat more food than I’m eating now, I gain weight very quickly. Some people don’t react to carbs and high calories at all. I have plenty of friends who are able to eat like that. However, after many times of trying this, I have settled on a way of eating which is suited to ME. Everyone’s bodies are different! =) As long as I’m eating a variety of foods and a good amount of fruits and vegetables, I think I’m eating very healthily thank you very much =D =D =D
Breakfast: Overnight chocolaty oats with water, spoon of ovaltine and unsweetened cocoa, Stevia + coffee with Ovaltine Lite.
Lunch: 1 meal replacement shake, handful of almonds, soba noodle salad with lettuce!
Dinner: Chunk of cabbage with 1 cooked chicken breast and roast pumpkin.
Snacks: Coffee, 2 cookies, 1 apple.
Exercise: 35 min walk on treadmill at speed 6.5 (about 3.6kms).

Well this is the 21st day of my Daily Eats, so I guess I’m now used to taking lovely pictures of my healthy food and showing you guys hehe! Today was another great day.

It just goes to show that you dont have to eat a whole load of crap to satisfy hunger and feel good! =) I definitely had a good day today!

FOOD JOURNAL - DAY 15
Food Journal DAY 15
No pictures today! Today was such a hectic day when all my healthiness went out the window. It was the first day of my teaching at a Russian school, so I had to get up very early. Then after hours and hours with the kids, I had to go straight to my other job. I was on the run all day, hence I filled my body with crap that I now regret =( If I’d had more healthy food in my house, I would’ve been fine, but I hadn’t done the grocery shopping yet! Good news though, we’re making roast veggies tonight, so I’ll be gorging on those tomorrow! Tomorrow IS going to be healthy, lean and yummy!
Breakfast: 2 large pieces rye bread with 1 avocado, plus another piece of rye with 3 eggwhites, plus coffee. It was a big breakfast.
