Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 46 #icandothis

wp-1492120543707.

I seriously think I need to get me a new incentive! It’s been another really BAD week! I can’t stop eating all the things I shouldn’t eat.

I’m tired, and reaching for snacks and sugary fixes to keep me going.

Four weeks until the holidays, but that is four weeks filled to the brim with home visits, report writing, and assessments, alongside getting things ready for next academic year.

Sure, to look at the pictures, you’d think I’ve been really good. But that is just the half decent stuff, not the ice cream, the chocolates, the packs of crisps, the strawberry laces etc…

And to top it off, I weighed in and the results were dire!

I wrote that sentence above last night in anticipation for this weigh in.

Actually, rather than put on weight, I stayed the same as last week. Surprising as during the week, if I have sneaked on the scales, it looked like a gain was going to be coming! (Lesson to self, stop weighing yourself willy nilly!)

So, Yay! to not putting on weight, but I really must sort my diet out! There are so many healthy snacks and sweet things I could eat, I just need to get some more energy and get prepared!

I have been upping my water intake as well too, partly because I had slipped, and also it has been ridiculously hot here, for us Brits anyway! Temperatures hitting over 30 degrees Celsius, and trying to function in a  mainly non-air-conditioned school is not easy!

Right, must get on with getting ready for the last day of the week!

Have a wonderful Friday Peeps! And I shall report back next week!!!

Woe is me!

I have been a truly naughty girl this past week!

Although I guess I am allowed to celebrate after my Little ABBA’s Best Overall Blog win! ;P

But I have been eating, for England, and not all of it has been healthy! The scales have been shouting at me every morning, but I am rather scared of what it will say this morning!

Here is a selection of the foods I ate this week…

I didn’t eat dinner last night, but at a whole pack of biscuits and ice cream instead! I was craving sugar… and not the healthy kind…

And the painful result of this week….?

I put on 2lb!!!

I WILL get myself under control again, you wait and see Peeps!

Until next Friday then,w here I hope to have something better to report!!!

 

Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 44 – #icandothis

Ok, so I had a pretty naughty week at the beginning of this weigh in week…

Out for dinner and drinks with friends…

A rather huge and naughty dessert with the kids…

Chinese takeaway for dinner…

I had to be extra good the rest of the week!

Then a colleague mentioned a 3 day British Heart Foundation diet. It is said to have been formulated to help overweight patients who need to lose weight for operations. You could apparently lose up to 10 lbs in three days! Now, Definitely didn’t want to lose that much! And I only had two days until my weigh in, so I had a go. I tweaked it a bit as I was not prepared to go hungry!

And… well, my weight stayed the same as last week!

So I am happy because I think, had I not had a go, I would have been heavier, most definitely!

Thing is, with the Bash tomorrow, I have been creating in the kitchen (I’ll post about that tonight!) and I have to sample…

Carrot cake! At least there is vegetable in there!

But if you are interested in the 3 day diet, click here for the information.

Until next week Peeps! Have a healthy one!

Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 43 #icandothis

Another week, another weigh in!

It’s always hard when we are on holidays. I feel like all I want to do is pick while I am at home, despite keeping busy!

Anyway… 0.5lb off so it can’t be all that bad!

A selection of the food, both naughty and nice!

And today I will give a little ‘Ritu’ advice…

Don’t be afraid to try new things. You will be amazed, and wonder why you hadn’t tried them sooner! And exploring new foods, can really help your healthy eating regime too!
Take me, I never ate prawns, or King Prawns anyway. But in September, I thought I would try them, and you know, they weren’t that bad! And I started experimenting with fish. I was only ever a fish finger girl previously, but now I will eat salmon at least!
And Quark.
What the heck is Quark?!
It is a soft cheese made from skimmed (fat free) milk. And I had never heard of it! But it is a great alternative to cream in cooking, and if you add a little sweetener, it can be used as cream. I have made quark pancakes too, which I think are pretty special!

And with that little tip, I’ll leave you!

Have a wonderfully healthy week Peeps!

 

Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 42 #icandothis

Another week, another load of lovely food, and a good few naughty treats too!

The weekly weigh-in showed… Oops! A gain of 1.5lb! But no worries, I am still under my self imposed target of 9 and a half stone!

And I am happy to say that, though my shoulder is hurting after it, I managed to get back to my bhangra class for the first time since my accident!!! I hope that a few weeks of dancing will help kick-start the next phase of my health kick, to include a little more exercise!

Until next week Peeps!
