Week 2nd – 9th March 2014
As the title suggests my scales revealed a new low weight this week – but first the food:
We had a large piece of beef – (roasted with Yorkshire puddings and mashed potato of course) on Sunday and had plenty left over. So my wife decided to cook up a stir-fry using a mix of veg and the beef – with garlic ginger and a finish of rice wine. My wife added rice to hers of course, but nevertheless I had a decent plate full.
I followed it up with a large navel orange, yet again!
Calories – hmm well, it’s a bit finger in the air really so I’d better give the day around 500 cals just to be safe.
Well to be boring, but saving any hard decisions about what to eat, as we still had beef left and wanted to finish it off we had another stir fry with veg this time finished with sukiyaki sauce. Once again a navel orange finished off the meal
Calories – so I’d better award 500 cals to the meal again.
The payoff for the week was the weights I registered on Sunday and Thursday, which were 10st 7lbs and 10st 4lbs respectively. 10st 4 must be the lightest I’ve weighed for many a year. It’s been reflected in my running as well, Thursdays morning 6m run was a fast time compared to recent runs which is good. I just need to keep the weight down as my first half-marathon is in a month.
