Time for the second day summary. Same thing. I was not up very early and I was on my smartphone pretty often.
But I started the day in a good way. With a green smoothie and tea. I used the same ingredients for the smoothie like day one (spinach, cucumber, orange and water) but I added a banana as well. Now it tasted like apple and not watermelon.
Although some depressed poet might even find beauty in these millions shades of grey.
After this refreshing start in the grey morning I was craving something sweet and chocolate-y. So I decided to try the gluten free cottage cheese bean brownies I had made the day before. Hmmm yes, I’ve eaten better. Seriously. Those were not good. But since I didn’t have anything else with chocolate I had those with some tea.
For a hungry person on a diet they’re okay. But I’m not giving a recipe for those. Not L’Oreal material aka not worth it. I had them as a snack after lunch again and froze the rest of them for more desperate hungry days.
3 hours afterwards guess what – hungry again. I mean that’s what annoys me so much with this small portions thing – I’m hungry all the time and I feel like I’m making a walk to the fridge every five minutes. On the bright side (so somewhere where the sun is shining) – I’m not only eating less but thanks to the fridge walk, I also do some exercises. And plus I feel lighter and I don’t have stomach pains anymore, but seriously eating 6 small portions a day is one annoying habit. But I’ll stop whining and I’ll give it a chance. Like I gave these pizza bites made from millet a chance.
Those were surprisingly good and I had them with this salad – I love avocado and cucumber. But above all I love peppers. And olives. And rucola.
Cheese inside! Pizza without cheese is just like bean brownies WITH cottage cheese – NOT GOOD! So I used the one cheese that I had in my freezer – gorgonzola. I hid it inside the bites and then pretended I was surprised it was inside and clapped with my hands like a little kid. Okay I didn’t do that, but if someone else had made them or if I just had a very short memory and I knew nothing about the cheese inside I would’ve totally been surprised and thankful and would’ve clapped.
And that was lunch. Then I had again some of the cheese brownie and dinner was same as lunch.
This makes 5 portions and I was ready with eating at 7 pm. Then I did some exercises – again one of Diane Berry’s videos – Clubland Work it Out. It was pretty exhausting and made me feel good about myself while watching 5 episodes of The Mindy Project in a row. Love that show. After How I Met Your Mother ended somehow I couldn’t find a good TV show to waste my life with. I was really sad for a while. And then BAM! When I least expected it, I found Mindy and my life is full of excitement again.
