Day 09: Damian’s New You Diet Diary*
Day 9- Bank Holiday Treat!- Cauliflower and Mushrooms 🙂
Hope everyone is getting on well! I can’t beleive I am on Day 9 already! feels like I have just started..
The other day I remembered reading on the New You Plan website that I could add some mushroom, scallion, green pepper, and cauliflower to the hot meals. I have avoided adding anything, just beacuse I thought it was cheating. But today I added some cauliflower (two floretes) and 3 button mushrooms, to the cottage pie- it was fantastic and topped off with some black pepper gave it a real kick. So satisfying! Afterwards I did feel a bit guilty though, I am not sure exactly why, but maybe because I am not suffering very much. Aren’t you meant to suffer terribly on diets?
I woke up dying for my porridge this morning! I feel a bit out of sorts today as a result of only having 3 meals instead of the usual 4 yesterday. And because it is a bank holiday, my daily routine is a bit upset. I had no plan for today or a routine to fit around. I definitely need some sort of a plan to stick to for the day, it makes it a lot easier when you know what you are doing!
Would of usualy headed to the pub tonight with some friends. Didn’t plan anything, but really didn’t fancy going in anyway. I do miss having a pint or glass of wine more for the going out. But the idea going out looking 10 times better in a 1 or 2 months it will make the wait all the more worthwhile!
I am delighted I don’t like sweets or crisps as the house is full of them for Halloween! When I have been saying in previous day’s blogs that I was having a shake, I just wanted to clarify that I was actually making them quite thick and having them more as a mousse than a shake! I think psychologically eating something with a spoon, makes it seem more substantial.
I am going to start some excercise tomorrow, swimming and maybe I will have a go of a bike in the gym, or a threadmill.. If I survive I will let you know about it all tomorrow!
Will make a video later on when the all the sugar has left the kid’s systems and they finally decided to climb down from the ceilings!
Ciao for now!
