Meal Planning Monday VII

What is a Monday without some meal planning and general food chat from me?

It's week 2 of the 90 Day SSS plan and I'm loving it so far! Last week had a bit of trial and error with the recipes, finding out which are good and which really aren't. The Reduced Carb Oatmeal officially tastes like licking cardboard, but the Mousse Me Up (cottage cheese with sugar free jelly) is incredible. I've learnt that Protein Shakes with water aren't that great, but ones with milk are really yummy, and that I am terribly unfit. The food side has been stuck to almost 100% apart from one meal out with Anna before the theatre, but I only had salmon with green beans, so it's not like I fell off the wagon completely. I even watched her eat a sticky toffee pudding for dessert and didn't even wobble. Yup, I'm proud of myself.

The exercise is hard, but I always knew it was going to be as I'm just so unfit. I cried during the second HIIT session, as all the exercises were ones I just can't do (pushups, burpees, lunge jumps) but now I just choose videos with exercises I can do, and modify those that I can't/swap them for something I can do. You can go to spin class as a HIIT session if you want so Cat and I headed to the RAF gym for one on Wednesday which I totally love/hated my way through. I was totally dripping with sweat at the end, but I know it will all be worth it.

I've been struggling a bit with the sugar withdrawal, as the plan is almost completely sugar free I think, with very little sweet in it aside from the Mousse Me Up, protein powder and pancakes. There is the option of a fruit snack, but I'm really fussy with my fruit, so I'm not having those at all. I've been very lethargic and a little headachey at times, but I know this will pass once all the sugar is out of my system and I'm used to not having it. It will definitely be worth it, and I'm already not craving sweet things anywhere near as much.

Anyway, enough of me rabbiting on, time to tell you what I'm eating this week. Snacks are nuts, turkey wrapped egg muffins and mousse me up this week, maybe with a protein shake in if I can't face yet more nuts.

I've not planned the weekend yet as Nat is coming to stay, and my fridges couldn't fit anymore food in them (thank goodness I have two fridges!). As always, I'm Instagram Story-ing everything I eat, as well as my gloriously bright red post work out faces, so give me a follow on @inelegantwench if you like.

What are you eating this week?
