So now that I have blogged about Wednesdays food I am going to follow that straight up by blogging about Thursdays!
Okie Dokie Artichokie!
Thursday was certainly a INTERESTING DAY! My Auntie is a Holistic Nutritionist and works with Neways. I have always thought that it was all a little airy-fairy but with the recent changes in my mood and over all feelings of better health by stopping junk food I thought that maybe I would look more into these options and see if I can feel even better by substituting a few items.
I had a appointment to see her at her office at 9:30am and as I was at my parents house again I decided on a little sleep in before I had to leave. I did not factor in the fact that I need to have breakfast everyday now otherwise I start feeling sick so I whipped up a quick breakfast.
I was lucky with breakfast, I had brought a spare Chobani Strawberry Yogie the other day when I was shopping so I grabbed that out the fridge and gulped it down. I only got through half of it before I started to feel a little ill. I also made a quick Mocha which I wanted to try. Turns out it tastes HORRID I had a sip and couldn't stomach anymore. It was possibly because I was still feeling ill from gulping down the yoghurt or because I didn't really make it properly so I will try it again another time.

I saw my Auntie and was pleasantly surprised about all the information that she gave me. I have taken it all home to read and think about and then will see her next Thursday and go from there.
I was also supposed to have my Kidney Transplant Specialist appointment at 12pm and was running a little late from seeing my Auntie so I rushed into the hospital. I had Dylan with me because he always wants to go to these appointments to make sure that I am alright. I get up to the office and go to check in however the receptionist can't find my name in the computer anywhere asks if I've seen him before? I told her yes, I've seen him for the past 5 years. So the she asks me if I have a transplant? Yes it's 2 years. She asks if I am supposed to be in clinic? No I need to see my specialist as this is a normal appointment. The she turns around properly to me and says "oh well I'm busy sit down I'll try to find you in the system and check you in." So Dyl and I go and sit down.
Now I normally have to wait about 20 minutes because my doctor always seem to be running a little late but I am fine with that. 40mins pass and this seems like a little more than usual. So I get up to ask if Ive missed my appointment, the assistant answers with "oh yes sorry I got side tracked and didn't check you and I can find your appointment are you sure you have one?" I was pretty stressed and shocked at this point but managed to find my appointment card in my diary and gave it to her. She looks at me rather annoyed and says in quite a rude tone "Oh well I'm going to have to book you in next week at 8:45am because you weren't properly booked in." I already have another appointment at another hospital at 9:15am on Wednesday and can't be late for that one so I ask if there are any other availabilities because I don't want to cause a issue with both appointments. The receptionist turns to me and says "oh I'm sure you'll make it" and with that gets up from here chair and walks out to the back area!
To say that this stressed me out and upset me was a understatement. Dylan walked back to the car with me where I preceded to cry my eyes out because I was so upset. I felt like she was blaming me and now I am super concerned that I wont be able to make my appointment that I have already had scheduled for a month.
Needless to say I was in a bad place and was starving from not having eaten much breakfast, so I through out all my weight loss and diet thoughts out the window and headed straight for my favourite sandwich shop.
I went for my favourite wrap, the wrap that I dream about! I haven't had it in ages because I was trying to be so self conscious but I didn't care, I couldn't care how much weight I have lost, how well I have been doing I through it all to the wind and EMOTIONALLY ATE! The wrap is sliced roast chicken breast, avocado, spinach and pepper mayonnaise on a wholemeal wrap. The picture above is of half the wrap! I had already downed the first half whilst in the car. I grabbed a menu so that I could record the calories as best I could but I have a feeling that what they list in the weight of ingredients is pretty heavily off!

Dyl and I then hung out and went for a swim for a few hours to get my mind of things. However I don't think it really worked very well. We ended up staying in the pool for about 2 hours and by the time we went to get out it had cooled down so much I could barely get out of the pool without freezing. (Well that's what it felt like!)
DINNER:There's no picture of dinner for a very good reason! I was extremely ashamed about what I ate and I was far to embarrassed to take a picture. I was still feeling a little sorry for myself when everyone decided to go get dinner and I was "far to upset" to show restrain and stick with what was planned! talk about my inner fat girl making excuses! We got KFC DUN DUN DUNNNNNN!!!!
Today being in a good mood the thought of getting KFC makes me feel sick, but not yesterday. I tried to be healthy and order a grilled twister wrap. I panicked a bit like I always do when ordering fast food and just said yes instead of checking which type of grilled twister it was. I ended up with the MAX it contained a hashbrown, chorizo and plastic artificial cheese! Now these items are on my disgusting list any day of the week so when we got home I pretty much picked everything out of the wrap including the chicken which tasted revolting and ended up with a tortilla drenched in mayonnaise with wilted lettuce and tomato. Probably one of the worst dinners I have ever had! Talk about KARMA, I order something bad and get something revolting! The chips where also horrid so I gave those to my sister and barely ended up eating anything.
Dinner Stats: 645 Cals
DESSERT:I was tired, I was hungry because I didn't eat dinner and we where watching a cooking show so I had yet another night finished of with a Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sundae NOT GOOD!
Dessert Stats:110 Cals
To round off a bad day lets check the stats for walking shall we! Its just adding insult to injury really! I only ended up walking 1,830 steps that is really sad!
I hope to walk more and more over the coming weeks and get this up to the 10,000 to 12,000 it needs to be at!
Sometimes you have bad days, it's what you do once that day is over that is dictates just how in control you are! That is my MANTRA
