It's only 5:30pm but I feel like going to bed. In spite of my good resolution (should I say 'as usual'?!...) I only fell asleep at about midnight, waiting for Hubby to come home. I woke up at 7 this morning and I've not been feeling my best all day long as was to be expected. Dumb me...
I'm still on track although I'm wondering if I shouldn't up the calories. I'm not very active these days and I'm 1m65 (roughly speaking: 5'5) so I set my tracker at 1600 calories. But I keep reading that on this diet, we should increase our calories and forget about our past diets. I know, I know, but I feel full already and I'm so used to being careful of my overloading my calorie budget...What's more, I've noticed that my (green, by the way! ;-)) digestion is slowing down so I'm quite sure that, as a nurse told me when my son got sick years ago, 'when nothing's getting in, nothing's getting out'. Funny thing though, my weight is stable so I guess that, as Organic said, it must be water.
So, 2 things to work on!
FOOD (even though I haven't had dinner yet, here's the plan and I know I'll follow it to the letter):
- 2 C spinach
- 4 oranges
- 1 banana
- 1 grapefruit
- 4 C grated carrots
- 3 tomatoes
- 4 figs
- 400g strawberries (bliss I shared with my daughter)
- 8 plums
- 1 C shredded cabbage
- 1 cucumber
- 3 C snap beans
- 1 melon
- 1654 calories
- 8.3% protein
- 5.2% lipids
- 86.5% carbs
I've walked for about 40 minutes wearing Baby Anya. It was sunny and nice even if it was only a trip to the supermarket.
- I ate a melon on the balcony under the warm sun. Lovely!
- After much procrastination (clutter or essential tool?), I've finally ordered a Padermo's Spirooli from Amazon.fr. I think it's coming from Italy. I can't wait!
As soon as I've finished writing this blog, I'll switch the computer off so as not to be tempted. And off to bed at the earliest possible time, to read Victoria Boutenko's "12 steps to raw food". Quite interesting!
I'm currently drinking my 4th litre of water so I'm all good.
My 'fast food' is ready for tomorrow's lunch away from home - bananas and apples are so convenient to carry on a working 'picnic'.
Got to go! Thanks for reading and commenting - I always appreciate it, even if I'm time-crushed right now...
