I’m not fretting too much about details this week, just getting myself back into the habit of counting calories and watching fatty foods. I’ve set a goal of keeping meals under 500 calories each and not snacking in between meals (or especially while cooking them). I also
wantneed to get back into the habit of exercising.
So I had four cups of coffee with milk (120 calories!) instead of switching to tea and in the evening we sat down with wine and talked about Apple’s policies towards development on the iPhone until the early hours.
Having said that, I was was pleased to see that it was easy for me to make low-calorie meals without having to think about it. This does beg the question why I’ve not been doing this throughout, of course!
I did some yoga out on the balcony to stretch out.
lunch: Spicy Lamb and Cabbage Stir-Fry for 2
|150g lean lamb||292|
|1 tablespoon sesame oil||120|
|fresh ginger and garlic and chile||20|
|40g chile sauce||71|
Per portion: 450 calories
Dinner: Chicken filet with white beans and salad
|100g chicken breast filet||110|
|125g white beans||142|
|75g green tomato||20|
At the end of dinner, I felt like I was starving to death. Despite the fact that I wasn’t counting towards a total (and drinking wine) I decided not to go in search of more food but just to accept it. I drank two large glasses of water which helped a bit.
As time went on, I felt nibbly but not ravenous so waiting it out was the right thing to do.
