Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 48 – #icandothis

Another week of good eating, but also filled with cake and indulgences!

It was Lil Man’s Birthday so how could I not make and eat cake, and refuse him the foods of his choice?!







Cake and Mango Lassi


But the biggie… the weigh in…

I’m  a little disappointed in myself… but I knew it was coming, however, since I weigh in during the week too to see how I am going, I know it is not as bad as it could be…

A 1.5lb gain.

Aw man!

Still, I can only try my hardest to lose it an a little bit more again.I am so tired from work at the moment. The end of the academic year is a killer. It is so easy to reach for comfort snacks to fuel the last few weeks, and I know I have been doing that.

This year I have also been falling asleep much earlier each night, and I am not fighting that at all. If my body says sleep, I am listening, not even finishing the chapter I am reading.. and that’s saying something!

Sheesh! I must be growing up! Actually listening to my body instead of forcing myself to do things because I feel I need to do them!

Right, I am off to try and be a better eater this week… (she says, knowing pizza is on the cards tomorrow night… Eek!)

Hope you had a healthier week than me Peeps! And here’s to a loss next week!!!!

    Your food looks very healthy – and you seem quite organized about all this – so keep with it and – pizza notwithstanding – maybe next week will yield better results. Good luck!

    I think you are much better at organising meals than I am Ritu. I forgot to eat breakfast twice this week and then wondered why I was so hungry at lunch time. I also missed lunch on Wednesday. Eeek!

    Hello! All that food looks delicious and nourishing so don’t feel bad about the gain. Wish I could serve up some of that at my house – you’ve given me some ideas! Happy Friday!

    It’s not bad to treat yourself once in a while. 1.5 is nothing, you’ll lose it before you know. Do you work out?

    Stress is not the best pre-condition for such a project. The summer break is coming up and you can focus more on that…. although there is ice cream, smoothies, …. I know I am mean 😜
