Back to Work

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 🙂

Stop Procrastinating

I need to stop procrastinating. I am the queen of putting things off and I want this to change.

I have just got back from my break and I have unpacked, put my clothes away, eaten and set up my computer again. I would not normally do this. I even put away my washing, which is something I am awful at doing. I would have normally dumped my suitcase and unpacked a bit as I needed it. The suitcase would have stayed on the floor until next week most likely.

But NOT TODAY!

Now I am ready to blog with a cup of calming tea.

I am back to the tracking today. I need to do this to be healthy as I eat mindlessly. I also forget what i’ve eaten on a day. How can I forget I ate a chocolate bar or sandwich? I have no idea, but it happens.  So tracking is the only way to start being the healthy me I want to be.

I have consumed 1489 calories today. 55% from Carbohydrates. 19% from protein and 26% from fat. This profile worked for me today. I am also going to keep an eye on this to see how my hunger levels react.

So what did I have?

Breakfast was a greek yogurt with honey and coffee.

I was surpassed this kept me going as long as it did. I would normally add oats and things. I think I need to have a rethink about breakfasts.

Onto lunch. I admit I was fairly hungry. I had to snack on an Eat Natural bar until I got back and could my lunch. I bought the prawn layered salad as I was feeling lazy. I also got a Starbuck Caramel light frappacino as it was hot! I sat down out on the balcony 🙂 I could get used to that!

It was then time to tidy the flat so my parents can just settle in when they next come down. I had my friends Patch and Sooty to keep me company.

I couldn’t decide what to have to dinner so headed home and stopped at the services on the way back. For once I didn’t want bread. That has to be a first for me. Bread is my got to lazy meal!

So I spied Marks and Spencer food and chose the Crayfish with noodles, asian style vegetables, edamame soya beans and a soy and ginger dressing. Wow they covered it all in the title. It was good!

I also grabbed some prepared fruit that was reduced 🙂 melon, grapes and pomegranate.

Overall a great day!
