My 500 Calorie day

We all had a little lay in this morning, after yesterdays long hike we were a little tired. Although we were only walking it has left a good burn in my calf and thigh muscles, so i feel it has done some good!

As i didn’t have to go out with the boys today, i took the opportunity to have my “500 calorie day”
Iv long been interested in the science of fasting, and while i am not as hardcore as some..(water only) i do find it very easy to stick within the 500 calorie limit.

I find it especially beneficial if i have overeaten the day before, I feel it gives my system a little rest….

Although simple to follow, i have just bought a book to give me some ideas of what to eat….

5:2 Diet Book

I started the morning with a cup of tea = 10 cals

Then had my usual porridge with almond milk, but just half a sachet = 73 cals

Almond Milk

Porridge Sachet

After this i felt fine till 2pm..when i felt the familiar rumble of an empty tum…

Lunch Time!!!

Lunch

1 Hard boiled egg = 70 Cals

Got home around 5.30 this evening so straight out for dog walks. I had them both walked within 90mins so I must have paced it around.
Its strange how I seem to have more energy on a 500 cal day.

Tea tonight was veg with a stew on the side. No potatoes, or bread just a little amount of beef to protein it up a little.

Let me know if anyone else is trying this diet, and if so how are you finding it? Have you had good results??

Exercise early!!

Up early this morning for a run with the boys….Im always glad to get my daily exercise out of the way first thing.

I have discovered a brilliant way to start my day..collagen-shots.com….My therapist Jane at embellishbeauty.co.uk put me onto these, and im thrilled with the improvement to my skin. However iv also realized that they really do give me that added bolt of energy I need to get me out of the house at 6am on these cold damp winter mornings.

Collagen Shots

It was very dark today on the fields with the dogs, but luckily Danny always looks out for me and has given me a fab little torch to use while im out…this combined with the new coats Rolley and Barney got for Christmas, means i can keep track of where they are even if they are deep in the woods following deer and rabbit scents..

The coats are from http://www.ruffwear.co.uk and are amazing…they were quite expensive, but that was mainly due to the sizes we need, but I would highly recommend them. Rolley does look a little like Vin Diesel in his!!

Hurtta Dog Coat

Breakfast this morning was porridge, with a sprinkle of ground flax and half a banana, I made the porridge with almond milk as I find this makes it nice and creamy and keeps me full till lunch time.
I love bananas but find i only ever eat half…Does anyone else have any odd food habits??

Breakfast!
