My body seems to be wanting more food (carbs) at night time lately. My preferred workout time at the moment is after breakfast, so usually I’d have most of my carbs around this time. However, I’m ahead of schedule in terms of weight loss so am going to try including more carbs at night time (and a bit less fat elsewhere in my diet) and see how my body responds.

So this morning for breakfast I had low-fat cheese and tomato on sprouted grain toast:

Then I headed off to the gym to do weights plus cross-trainer intervals. Had a great workout today, probably courtesy of all the fruit buns I ate last night!

After training I had a protein shake with lactose-free milk, rice protein and banana:

Lunch was a toasted sandwich with mushrooms, artichoke hearts, low-fat feta cheese and pizza paste:

plus some salad with pineapple:

For afternoon tea I had a rice protein shake and an apple:

Then we went to look at an open home. We liked it and think we will put in an offer on it.

For dinner I made a lentil shepherd’s pie with sweet potato topping and a side of broccoli:

I also had a piece of bread to mop up the sauce:

and a bit of fruit salad:

That didn’t keep me full for long so I had some oats, raisins and yoghurt (x 2):
