Yay, the end of Week 2!
This is going pretty well, isn’t it? I guess I was right about the temptation thing after all. I am so tired of being big (at least bigger than I should be) that I don’t even feel like cheating or skipping gym or whatever else that might hinder my progress. And I’m also highly motivated to look the best I can in 2 weeks for my upcoming trip to Rome and Venice. Can’t be going on holiday looking like a bag of potatoes. I’ve done it enough times and it’s not very pleasant.
I have to admit though. I’m a little worried about my weight scale reading tomorrow. See I don’t think it will be bad but I did have Subway quite a few times this week. I had a reason for it and fair enough I also fasted and whenever I had Subway, I was smart enough to keep things reasonable. But I didn’t exactly have salads all week. Then I’d be worry-free. Anyway, we’ll have to see tomorrow, won’t we?
Meals of the day
Meal 1: 1 scoop of whey protein, 1 multivitamin (at 15 00)
Snack: 2 plain yoghurts, 1 apple, 1 banana (at 17 30)
Meal 2: Fajita-spiced grilled chicken and roasted vegetables (at 20 30)
The vegetables in the making
1. Dice equal amounts of zucchini, bell pepper and red onion. Grab some corn, frozen or otherwise.
2. Add minced garlic and season with salt and pepper.
3. Add a little olive oil to coat.
Throw everything in a baking dish. Roast the vegetables. I guess gas mark 6 for 15 minutes should be just fine. Gas mark 6 translates to 400 degrees F or 200°C.
As you can tell, some days I wake up with the inspiration to cook and be creative in the kitchen. Some days, well, you won’t be able to get me to even make coffee. I would just go buy some. This partially explains why sometimes you’ll see me having Subway for days on. That’s when you know I can’t be bothered to cook. Which I have to admit, happens a lot more often than me being struck by a flash of inspiration to cook something nice.
