No weight loss today…which made me think.  I barely ate anything yesterday, I only had about 700 calories, which is half of what some people would have if they were on a diet!  I remember once counting my breakfast calories, baked beans with hot buttered toasts, 2 milky chocolatey coffees, and that by itself was already over 700 calories, so I couldn’t believe I only ate 700 calories yesterday and didn’t register any weight loss.

This made me think, by mid afternoon yesterday, I sort of lost that starving, peckish feeling…so it must mean my metabolism slowed down because it was in ‘starvation’ mode?  I think so…that’s the only thing I can think of really.

Anyways, I was very good, I didn’t detour off the diet (much) today.  For breakfast, instead of an English muffin, I just put my fried egg and sliced tomato on some toasted rye bread.  I will admit that an English muffin would probably have been tastier than the rye that I’ve had in the fridge for 5 days.

I had a sweet, delicious orange for morning tea, but I must say…now that I think about it, I didn’t feel hungry at all before I fished it out of the fridge to eat it.

Lunch were wraps, which was nice (but soggy)…I made it this morning and toasted it for lunch.  It was already soggy when I took it out of the fridge at lunch time and toasting it only mildy browned it…but I still ate a soggy lunch today.  Flavour wise, it was not too bad, texture is soooo important though! My, how my standards have dropped!

Dinner was really good.  I didn’t have any Bok Choy so I used green beans, and some like it hot, I like it very hot so instead of one big chilli, I added two, fresh birds eye chilli which gave it some punch.  I don’t eat cous cous because I don’t eat wheat (allergy) so I had some polenta with it instead.  I really, really would’ve preferred a pile of fluffy white rice with it, but it really was quite tasty.  A HUGE IMPROVEMENT on yesterday’s disgusting food.  Still can’t get over it! Orange, tuna and soy sauce indeed! The hell you say!
