Here are where my wanderings have taken me in blogworld this week. I hope you enjoy them 🙂
Rich from over at A Rich Life sent me this article called ‘You Are Not Running Out of Time; or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Enjoy Infinity’. A really good essay that resonated with me and my current situation.
Matt over at No Meat Athlete has written a great post on The Only Healthy Eating Guide You’ll Ever Need. It really is simple and this is the approach I would like to take. I am working towards buying on whole foods and getting rid of all the processed foods. This is a post I will be keeping to hand to remind of the basics.
This article called You Can’t Fix a Body you Hate was linked to on Twitter and it’s an interesting and worthwhile read.
Laura from Becoming the Odd Duck gave me a shout out – My First One! Thanks Laura! She also reminded me about remembering the smaller, everyday things in life we take for granted and her post call Behind the Scenes takes this step.
Back normal here at Wandering Angie means back to work. I’ll tell you more about what I do one day.
Today I’ve consumed 1849 calories. 45% from Carbohydrates. 16% from Protein. 39% from Fat. A little too much fat but overall not a bad day – I forgot to track my pre workout snack before I wrote that last sentence so I’ve had a few more calories than I wanted, but I needed them today (well except the biscuits).
I started the day not hungry at all! I’m unsure whether I should force myself to eat when I’m like this but I did. I threw a raspberry organic yogurt together with sunflower, pumpkin and chia seeds as well as oats and a banana. Not forgetting my apple juice matcha shot.
Then off to work I went. I was okay all morning so that was a good breakfast. I then had a pre work out snack of almonds, dates and brazil nuts.
I headed off to Body Pump to meet my friend Linz. I was so glad she went as I think I would have skipped it. I’m not good at lunchtime workouts, but I actually really enjoyed it and it kept me more awake in the afternoon 🙂 Also my bag always encourages me!
Back to the office for lunch of a bagel with garlic cheese (haha had to use it up) and a Nak’d Bar. I’m totally lacking in the lunch department and I plan to work on this.
Mid afternoon came around and I knew that lunch was not good enough. An organic fruit and oat bar was called for.
The end of work came around and I got ready to head off to a course. I decided I couldn’t wait until I got home at 9pm to eat so I spotted off and picked something up. A tuna and mixed bean salad. It was really good. I am going to copy this for lunch.
At my course I gave in and had a couple of biscuits with my coffee. I shouldn’t have had 2. I only wanted one but 2 came out together (I know I know no excuse) and I should have just no eaten it, but I was getting tired.
As I had forgotten my pre workout snack I decided to have something extra for supper I suppose. A fried egg on toast. It hit the spot as it was hot I think.
Not a bad day really. It did highlight that I still forget what I eat, but I do stick to a reasonable amount of calories so I’m happy as I am listening to my body and it’s signals. One day at a time 🙂
