Post-Holiday Eating and Exercise 

So as you guys are very aware this week has mainly consisted of me trying to get back on track since my holiday that consisted of serious indulging. Unfortunately for me, my ‘get back on track’ week also happened to be a week when we had ‘Shrove Tuesday’ in the UK which basically consists of you stuffing yourself silly with pancakes. 


The week started off successfully, since the food on holiday had no flavour I decided to make a homemade Nando’s. Apart from the chips, it was fairly healthy. However, the tub of Nutella I finished off with a spoon wasn’t. We’ll call Monday a trial day….


Like a true coincidence of fate, the next day also happened to be ‘Shrove Tuesday’ which like I said is a day you just eat pancakes. I had mine with even more Nutella (I think you guys can tell how this week is gonna play out….) 


Hump of the week day! On Wednesday, it was (as luck would have it) St David’s Day which is a national day of celebration in Wales. As my boyfriend is Welsh, he wished to celebrate it by cooking Welsh food! We made Welsh Rarebit which is basically posh cheese on toast and Glamorgan Sausages. To finish off we had a Welsh cake or two, I was fairly proud of myself as I managed to steer clear of the Nutella having promised myself that I would give up chocolate until Easter! 

For lunch I was also good as I had my favourite healthy treat! Avocado on Toast with Poached Eggs! 


Thursday was my best day of the week! Not only did I do a very painful Tabata Style workout but I also kept my diet clean. As I had university in the evening, I had an early lunch of Avocado on Toast and then a early dinner of Quorn Chicken Pieces with Golden Vegetable with Rice. 


And….now you’ll see were it all went wrong! Remember how I said I’d given up chocolate until Easter. Well, it was all going so bloody well until, I accidentally forgot the cereal bar I had on my way to work on Friday had chocolate chips in it! Major doh moment! We also had homemade pizzas and dough balls on Friday which I know isn’t the healthiest thing in the world but it was better than a greasy takeaway. 

Of course, after discovering that I had accidentally eaten chocolate I then went and purposely ate chocolate. Nutella to be precise. Damn Nutella


And last but not least we’re on Saturday! As it was the weekend I did have a cheeky bit of chocolate but dinner was healthy Veggie Fajitas to counteract all the sugar. 

And that was how I’ve eaten since coming back from my holiday. I know I said I’d be healthy and exercise loads but you know what, shit happens and I can always try again! Hopefully next week, I can stay from the Nutella that bloody jar gets me every time!!!!
