Good Morning Everyone!
So much for me joining those challenges yesterday.
The scales are not smiling at me today (I gained a kilo after last nights New Years Day bbq party) I consumed 2 glasses of white wine, 1 chicken breast cooked in fat from the bbq, lots of healthy undressed green salad, 1 metric cup of my Rice salad, ½ a metric cup of my home made coleslaw (it hardly had any mayo in it) and No bread roll.
I didn't have any seafood salad or potato salad as they oozed calories.
I've decided to break my food groups up a little differently for a few days, to see if my body responds better to it.

Breakfast
Grains -
3 weet-bix with a splash of hot water & a level teaspoon of sugar
2 decaf coffee's

2 glasses of water

Lunch
Fruits and Vegtables -
garden salad without dressing
2 small kiwi fruit. 1 small apple

2 glasses of water

Dinner
Protein -
1 fillet of microwaved fish
a plain yoghurt
1 glass of no fat milk

2 glasses of water

Breakfast
none - I slept in and missed it

Lunch
a large glass of fruit smoothie (banana, apricot, strawberries, cherries, no fat yoghurt, a little low fat milk and some oats) and 2 slices of rye multigrain toast with marmite. The juice/kelp/dolomite mix

Afternoon tea at the wedding
The bride looked fantastic - and I got 2 spontaneous compliments from friends on how slim I was looking (And my pants kept falling down because they're now too loose). Anyway, back to the point... a handful of grapes, 1/2 a strawberry (they always disappear fast), a small slice of fruit cake (no icing) 2 glasses apple juice.

Dinner
vege curry stew (carrot, potato, pumpkin, sweet potato, peas, broccoli, zucchini, onion, garlic, water, curry powder, cummin, corriander, whatever spices I thought would be good, a bit of corn flour to thicken) with 2 slices of grain bread (no butter), some grapes and 2 apricots, cup tea

Hi Kim, the ol' christmas biscuits certainly are tempting. I got rid of the ones in our house by making my husband and son lots of cuppa's and giving them biscuits each time.

Drinking water is a good way to resist the biscuits.
Weight loss and water go hand in hand. Water suppresses appetite and helps the body metabolize fat. It also regulates body temperature and flushes toxins from the body. Before you grab a biscuit, try drinking a couple of glasses of 100-percent calorie-free H2O.

On the topic of water...I've discovered the perfect thing for being out at BBQ's etc - SODA WATER!!! it looks like lemonade so you feel at home with everyone drinking naughty fizzy's, I think it tastes better than plain water, and it's still calorie free! i have a bottle permanently in the cupboard now.

that sounds good Marie, it appears you're doing good in eating healthy, prawns being seafood have nutrients and iv heard brocoli is very good :).. rice is good as well in that the carb concentration isn't like bread and can be more filling...

P.S did you make your own smoothies? Sometimes you buy them from like Boost or those juice stands they aren't so good and can contain a lot of junk in them.

And with eating after 5 to a certain extent can be true... the body will take some time to digest and it's advise not to eat 3 hours before sleeping.
