When I took photos of everything I ate on Wednesday, I thought I’d do it for one day only. Then several people commented on how little I ate and I knew that I had to continue with the photos to see if I actually ate more on work days (Wednesdays I’m at home) and during the weekend when I run more.
Thursday has less photos but we ate out at Thai Square after a long day at work (and a missed Crossfit class due to a freaking meeting) and I had to multiply the prawn crackers and the duck pancakes because I just didn’t stop at 1. (lunch is salad with 2 boiled eggs and main course at dinner is chilli lamb and broccoli)
Friday was another long day at work and yet another missed Crossfit (this week has not been good work/exercise balance wise). Fridays our cafeteria/restaurant does a cooked breakfast so that’s what I went for; lunch was at Strada with some friends/colleagues and I had pumpkin risotto again as it tastes good and it’s something I know won’t mess with my digestion. Dinner was simply sweet potatoes and leftover pork sausages cooked up in coconut oil – I got home late and didn’t have time to think any further (the boys and my mother had already had their mashed potatoes, sausages and broccoli).
Today was a busy day so from 1pm to 4pm I ate on the go and after dinner was quite full but hubs was eating chocolate so I grabbed some as well (my favorite stevia-sweetened dark chocolate) with some almonds – to be honest I really didn’t need it, I feel really uncomfortably stuffed right now.
It’s all getting a bit tedious, isn’t it? Crazy woman taking photos of every meal 🙂 I can say though that it’s been a very interesting psychological experiment – it’s definitely made me think about what I shove in my mouth. I often snack as I cook or as I pass through the kitchen, now I can’t do that because it’s just too much of a hassle to take photos of 5 nuts here and 2 dates there, etc.
I will do this one more time tomorrow – it’s long run day.
Who’s taking food photos next week to show me??
