I do a reasonable amount of exercise – 3 times a week on average – but still have quite a flabby belly, I think because I just eat a lot. So, for the next 2 weeks I’m going to do Women’s Fitness bikini body blitz.
On today’s menu…
2 Scrambled eggs on 1 slice of brown toast for breakfast – although I didn’t have time to sort that out this morning so I had a bowl of maple and pecan crisp cereal with skimmed milk.
mid morning snack
An apple and 6 almonds
Salmon fillet with mixed leaves salad (I just had rocket) with a little olive oil and a whole meal roll (no butter)
The menu said low fat plain yoghurt with a handful of blueberries. I substituted my blueberries for raspberries and didn’t really fancy the yoghurt so basically just had some raspberries.
Chicken tikka – marinated since this morning in (low fat) yoghurt, grated garlic (3 cloves), grated fresh ginger (about 2cm), a chopped fresh chilli and a little chilli powder, ground cumin and coriander (1 tbsp), fresh chopped coriander, paprika (1 tsp), a little ground cinnamon (1/4 tsp) and a pinch of saffron.
Women’s Fitness said I should have had this with brown rice but instead I had a handful of lettuce and some cucumber raita.
The magazine also has a few pages of exercises and I was meant to do some today, although I ran a half marathon yesterday so had a rest day today.
So, off to a mediocre start, let’s see how it goes tomorrow.
