Where Was I?

So, four weeks off the gym. Two weeks of good eating. Two weeks of way-too-much eating.

I’ve started back into my exercise again and it’s helping me to be more focused with my eating. I’m walking in the mornings (following a walking program from the June Australian Women’s Weekly) and doing weights in the late afternoon. I like eating starchy carbs in the evenings in winter time, so I figured I’d train in the late afternoon so my body can make some use of the food I’m eating in the evenings.

I’ve also figured out that I like eating carbs to help me concentrate and stop me getting grumpy, but I like a little bit of fat along with it, otherwise I don’t feel satisfied and just keep stuffing my face full of food.

Tuesday’s food and exercise consisted of:

coffee with milk*

foam rolling (felt so good!)

sprouted grain toast spread with liquid fish oil and topped with scrambled egg and egg whites; gold kiwifruit

yoghurt mixed with grated apple and pumpkin seeds

lean corned beef and coleslaw (cabbage, carrot, pineapple pieces) dressed with avocado oil and balsamic vinegar

upper body ‘pull’ workout (short and sweet!)

large hot chocolate with milk*

kangaroo sausage, baked potato, broccoli, macadamia oil


*I’m back on lactose-free milk again

I'm exactly the same with exercise and eating well too. Sounds like you have worked out a plan that works for you... Your food always sounds soooo good!!

Thanks Shannon - it's been lots of trial and error but I'm slowly getting there!
