Quote: I have NEVER had green beer!!- its a foreign thing- I have never seen it over here on St Patrick's Day only in France (that's the only country other than Ireland I have ever been for the day itself)
I have also NEVER had cornbeef and cabbage! I have had cornbeef cold in sandwiches but dont know anyone who has it for dinner! We have boiled bacon (a joint of it) with cabbage and turnip and mashed potato and white sauce...yummmeee! LOL There was a movie where Brad Pitt played an Irish guy that came here and the family made him corned beef and cabbage and he didn't know what it was and it was kind of jokey.
I didn't do anything festive today, used it as a recovery day with P. We went for a lovely long walk by the beach as it was a gloriously mild and sunny day and we had good chats about the weddding etc..anyway...
My unfestive report:
Breakfast: Rice Krispies with soy chocolate milk hmm that always sounds better than it tastes. Lunch: Wrap with Tuna, RF mayo, sweetcorn, tomato
Dinner: Prawn Stirfy with corn, spinach, peppers, beansprouts, bamboo shoots and mushroom onion brown rice a very big helping I am always impressed by your dinners. they sound so fancy. Dessert: Some Babyfood fruit compote
Snacks Some freshly squeezed orange juice after our long walk Luna Bar Water: 95 oz so far (my goal is 70)
Activites: LOTS today- we walked about 3 miles by the beach, I ironed for an hour and hoovered for 15 minutes. Calories burned through activities: 318
TOTAL CALORIES CONSUMED: 1808
BMR 2320 plus 318 activities= 2638. I consumed 1808 calories so have a surplus of 830
Health update: I am going back to work tomorrow! I have 5 more antibs to take but I am soo much better!
Finally, I am so proud of myself today as my eating choices have given me my best results ever on the nutritional info report on fitday..the only one I haven't made my RDA on today is Calcium and I still got 92% RDA(I KNOW this is important so I am going to get a supplement) Yay!
Next week will be a LOT different as I go back to work properly though...be strong Sinéad....be strong...
