So unfortunately I haven't been blogging at night lately and I am getting a little behind in my recounts of each day!
Hopefully I shall make some time in the evenings and rectify this!
Anyways lets Recount Monday 12wbt Day 8
I am always super grouchy on Monday, I really am not a Monday person!
Okie Dokie lets get down to business shall we!
I was pretty darn hungry when I woke up so I decided to have breakfast before I headed to see my personal trainer, maybe not the best idea! I had muesli again because lets face it, it really is the easiest and tastiest breakfast!

I then headed to see my trainer who pretty much kicked my butt! I did way too many crunches, squats and weights gosh he really is trying to kill me. I am so happy but kinda unhappy at how hard he pushes me. Sometimes when I am struggling to do a fairly simple exercise I think back to before I put on all the weight and how easy it was for me. I really need to stop doing that though!
As you can see from this less than flattering picture I was so super hot and sweaty that my eyes where all creepy and blood shot ewwwww!!
Lunch was AMAZING! Another 12wbt recipe this time the delicious Mediterranean Vegetable Sandwich with Basil Ricotta. I love love LOVE this sandwich! I am not the biggest fan of ricotta but in this sandwich it is truely heavenly! Normally I cook this in the morning before I leave for work but I actually didn't work so I cooked this as I made it and having the veggies still warm melted the ricotta a little making it even more creamy!

Now I had a bit of a strange afternoon, I was feeling WEIRD! It felt like all of a sudden I was hit with the Flu! I ended up unfortunatelytrying to cure this feeling with treats, and by treats I mean diet treats but still NOT what I want to be doing!
I had a skinny cow Sundae (not pictured) as well as a frozen juice box. Now yes these items are with in my calorie limit for the day and whilst I didn't go over my daily calorie allowance this is certainly NOT the food that I want to waste my Calories on!
Afternoon Stats: 221 Cals
Dinner was truely AMAZING! I was really not looking forward to it as it as it was Basil and Walnut Pesto Pasta with Roast Pumpkin and Tomatoes. I am not a big fan of vegetable pastas but as it was a 12wbt recipe I gave it my best go and boy oh boy was I wrong! This past was amazing! The pesto was delicious especially with the oven roasted veggies. I will definitely be making this again! Dyl made a very meaty pasta but gave mine a try and loved it so that goes to show just how great it was.
Dinner Stats: 229 Cals
I was craving like crazy after dinner, not to sure why but I really wanted cheese and ice cream. Clearly I was in a dairy mood which is a little odd for me because I am not the biggest fan of dairy!
As I was in a super crazy craving mood I had another Skinny Cow item (Dyl bought a bunch of them for the freezer because he though that would be better than having a super craving and going to McDonalds) this time I went for a double choc ice cream sandwich which really hit the spot and was still under my daily calories but as I said above not really what I want to be eating all the time!
Dessert Stats: 129 Cals
All up I did pretty well and I am glad that I did although I am not to happy with all the processed sweets I had through out the day, I am really working on trying to get over my sweet tooth and this was certainly not a good day for that!
My Daily Motivation
Next time I am having a craving I want to use this system to try and curb my sweet tooth!
Well that's all for Day 8!
Love You All
