2nd March – a good day exercise day, but BOY the hunger!

Hey all, hope your days have been good.

I got up early people! I had a good 5 minute argument with myself… literally.

And in the end I got up and did a quick cardio and a strength programme!

I’m hoping to get up tomorrow morning as well, time will tell.

Had a call from the doctor’s surgery, apparently I have inconclusive pee! So I have to pick up new test pots tomorrow and see the nurse again Wednesday morning. I’ll ask the nurse for a replacement prescription as well.

We also went for a walk this evening, passing by my mums to drop in my sister’s birthday pressie and card.

I’m feeling tired today, can’t stop yawning, so I’ll get on with the daily report.

Sleep – not brilliant but bearable.

Fluid – 200ml of milk, 2 glasses of water, 3 cups of tea.

Food – 40g natural nuts, 60g dried fruit, 1 cheese portion, 1 prawn salad.

Now, as per my title, I felt sooo damn hungry today! I’ve put it down to one of two things, tiredness or beans in salad.

This led to two bad choices.

One bad choice was a celebration chocolate.

The other was a mini bag of maryland cookies! Now believe it or not, I’m counting this as a success, I really wanted carbs! We have lovely bread left over from the weekend, and proper full fat butter. This was what I really had a hankering for. A slice of bread has 127 calories and the butter, well, my guestimate is around 60 calories. So a packet of cookies seemed the best option at 99 calories.

This evening was shopping day, and Paul almost had to frog march me past all the sweet, sugary, salty, carby stuff!

When we got home Paul put the shopping away and I cooked our tuna steak (fancied a bit of a change) with rice and peas and sweetcorn.

And I have just had a square of dark chocolate.

Exercise – I started the day with strength training and a small cardio. I was going to do some walking up and down the office but there was no time. We finished with a walk. 47 minutes of moderate activity and 17 minutes of vigorous activity.

So that’s my day. Got our eldest niece coming over tomorrow for dinner, so will probably be a late post again.

  1. I love that you felt the hunger but didn’t give in to it. When you’re hungry, your body is having to dig into it’s reserves. I know it can be an uncomfortable feeling, both physically and emotionally for some people – but harness the power of the hunger pangs!!
