Occasionally I like to do a day of MyFitnessPal, just to check that my portion sizes are still staying in the right amounts, and that I’m staying on track as I should. I think it’s a useful tool. I don’t use it every day, because I don’t find that it is convenient in my life to weigh and measure every mouthful that goes in, but it is useful to have a ballpark idea of the calories I’m consuming. Having done that with yesterday’s food, I was comfortably under 1600kcal, which should be sufficient to keep losing weight at the moment.
Breakfast – M loves eggs and toast, and asked for it for breakfast, so I thought I’d also have. Yum yum. 2 slices of wholemeal toast, 2 fried eggs, baked beans and fried onion.
While she was at her art class and R was at school, we went to Hendon Park for a short while. It. Was. Freezing. All my nice ideas of “oh I’ll go for a nice walk in a park sometime” were confronted with the reality of frozen toes. I think indoor exercising is in order for the next few months.
It was very pretty though.
Lunch – Viennas and ratatouille. I’ve never made ratatouille before but the only vegetables I could find were onions, a bag of frozen sliced courgettes (they hadn’t been left outside, but were intentionally frozen) and tinned tomatoes. I basically combined them all in a saucepan with some mixed herbs and some canderel and it was surprisingly nice!
Afternoon snacks – mixed seeds, and roasted salted corn nuts (which were kind of like imitation peanuts, not unpleasant but incredibly calorific for even the tiny amount I measured out).
Supper – H fell asleep about midday, which he doesn’t usually do. As a result, I didn’t know how late he’d stay up and so I decided to eat what I could before my Lovely Husband went out to his shiur. So I had some pasta and cheese. To be honest, I don’t like pasta and cheese all that much. Because I was counting calories yesterday, I could see that I shouldn’t eat anything else that evening and just leave it at that. So I did.
That’s all folks.
Sometimes it’s good to just Keep It Simple.
