Getting into a Groove

I'm really enjoying being able to eat more at the moment. It's a liberating feeling being able to choose anything to eat and knowing that you can eat it AND have some restriction there as well!!

I am having the most amazing salads for lunch at the moment - Pumpkin, Pecans, Fetta, Rocket, Cucumber, tomato and smoked salmon is my fave. I'm eating around 1-1.5cups, but it takes me a good 20-30 mins and I'm soooooooo full afterwards. I am getting the munchies alot earlier I'm finding after I eat, so I have a handful of nuts or a fruit cup handy to keep the hunger at bay.

I'm looking forward to going out for a Thai Meal on Saturday, knowing that I won't be limited to the soups or the juice of curries. That I can have one of their amazing king prawns.. YUM!

Tonight I'm having a rissole with salad, and tomorrow night will be Nachos (although I grate carrot, zucchini, tomato and capsicum to make it a little healthier!!).

Exercise is going really well this week. I've managed to get to the gym before work every single day so far. I plan on going tomorrow and Saturday as well. Which will make it 6 times this week.

OK, thats all from me for today... Happy Thursday!

Happy Thursday right back at ya! It's nice when you've been overly restricted to have it ease up a little. Sounds like you are still keeping your focus on healthy foods and way to go on the exercise.

I might have to try fruit cups as a snack. That's a good idea.
