Wednesday 11th May

Exercise: 30 Mins Cross Trainer (5.17km), 15 Mins Row (3.1km), Situps Food Intake: Day 3 Detox Breakfast: Porridge with banana & honey, glass warm water with lemon Morning Tea: Carrot Sticks Lunch: same as dinner yesterday, 2 slices Gluten & Wheat free bread, muesli bar Afternoon Tea: Banana Dinner: Chicken, Brown Rice, 6 Lemon & Lime Shortbreads (they were tiny!) Okay I'm getting a bit bored with the carrot sticks now. And I must find the recipe for the vegetable soup that's mentioned in the magazine that the detox is in. Yep, vegie soup with bread dunked in it sounds quite yummy! I cheated a little bit with the bread. I spread the weeniest amount of W/W margerine on it so that I could eat it without it lodging in my throat. Is that bad? Day 3 and I'm already cheating! And I went shopping tonight and specifically looked for dessert foods to eat. So I came home with some shortbread biscuits and some chocolate biscuits that are both wheat and gluten free. Not sure if this is allowed or not, but I've bought them anyway. I'm still waiting for the book that I ordered from It's been despatched so it should be here some time next week. Maybe then I'll actually have a proper idea of what I'm supposed to be doing on this detox, and maybe I'll get some new ideas for food that I can eat. I'm going to make some Chicken soup this weekend. Found a couple of recipes on the internet that look like they'll fit in nicely with the detox. Just hope that they taste nice! Now for the good bit, I resisted cakes today. At work we have a Morning Tea once every couple of months where the managers do a big pep talk and let everyone know what's happening in the company. And there were trays and trays of cakes sitting there. Those Vanilla Slices looked just divine, as did the apple cakes. But I brought my carrot sticks with me and sat there chomping on those while everyone else scoffed cake! Roll on Day 22!!
