I really struggled with this the past couple of days mostly because I had already planned and shopped for the weeks meals. I fasted today which anyone who fasts will tell you means come the break fast time you are ready to eat all the sweet/fatty food in the house! It must be a survival instinct we all have built in!
I’ve just sat to plan a few meals for next week and really get my head round the diet, so I’ve figured out the free foods and am building my food plan around them, Quorn is free on both red and green days as are eggs and salads and vegetables except potatoes. I dont usually eat much meat but having had a look through some of the recipes on the web site I think I might do a few red days and enjoy some lean beef,
the beef stews and lamb curries have got my mouth watering and i’ve had my dinner !!
My son was doing a few weeks work at Krispe Kreme and came home with a dozen last night, I’ve been very good and ate just one (13 syns incase you wondered) I counted the points up.
I’ve begun exercising, starting slow, weeks of bed rest and recovering from the miscarriage have left my muscles weak and I am out of puff pretty quickly but I managed a few hours of walking, indoor cycling and an hour of gardening. The gardening was much needed as it was lost under a sea of dead leaves. I’ve already figured that I can use my healthy extras to cover the seven dates i eat every morning and my other healthy extra to cover my skinny cappuccino, two very essential parts of my day!!
I have a great recipe for a vegetarian soup with no syns so I’ll be making that for lunches too.
I didnt think that 6 weeks on I’d still be recovering from the miscarriage but I am, my cycle is all out of sync and I feel emotionally wrung out. Eating properly and exercising again will only help I hope.
Wishing you peace, thanks for reading.
