So, I just got back from cycling to my dads..
Ate a sweet potatoe, some almonds and pistachios.
I was in a great mood until he got home. Such a downer..
First thing he did when he saw me was comment on my weight.
I'm the first to notice when I've lost weight, it's my darned body.
Then he cracked open a beer and told me not to punish my body!
So nutty! And there's always comments on my skin. Everytime.
Annnyyyway. Back home now and glad to be.
Just ate a mutton quiche. =[

I have lost a bit of weight since I've been eating healthier, which is a bummer as I'm underweight to begin with.
Looked up a bunch of options on here and will incorporate them as soon as possible.
I'm 6 ft tall and have gone down from 53 kgs to 49 kgs.
I'm freaking out. Trying to hold it together!
I cut out peanut butter for good measure, although I'm not too certain it was ever breaking me out. Should start again.

Woke up with 3 little whiteheads.
Could be from the quiche, the reintroduction of eggs, the egg mask, or me stressing out about my weight.
Luckily, whiteheads don't bother me too much. :)

Usual brekkie/lunch/snack.
Green tea and sweet potatoes.
Spent some time at church. It was wonderful.
Ate out for dinner! Steamed chicken wantons and pad Thai.. I must say, I felt a little bloated after. Haven't eaten outside food on a while!
Nearing the end of week two and my skin's doing great.
:)
Old hard spot on my foreheads come to head.
Same thing on my chin. Glad they're on their way our!
Not cycling anymore because of my weight loss, but walking everywhere I need to go.
The weather in Bombay is just perfect right now.

Bought a new facewash that I just can't wait to use!
AHAGLOW. Composition:
5% aloe Vera, 1% glycolic acid, 0.1% vitamin e, in a gel base.
Read reviews on an Indian blog and it's supposed to be great.

I'm going to start eating one banana daily (after a meal).
Went out and bought some sunflower seeds to put in my oats.
Ate well and had carrot juice today. :)
Put on an aspirin/honey mask in the evening. Couldn't stop touching my cheeks when it came off!
Used the new facewash. No lather, which I like. Smells funky. Cleaned prett well.

Started my day with a cup of white tea.
Pardon the extra info, but I had bowel movements like three times this morning.
Oats with a sliced banana and ground flaxseeds for breakfast.
Brown rice and daal, with a side of boiled cauliflower for lunch.
I was out until the evening and starving, had a couple of methi theplas. So good.
9 grain toast with sunflower seeds and an omelette (1 yolk 2 whites). Used gheeto fry.
A bowl of the most delicious pomegranate (followed by a second helping).
Dinner soon, same as lunch.

I washed my face with ground oats this morning.
Very pleased with the result! It's thevrvd of the day and I'm not as oily as I usually get. Going to use it again before bed.
I only hope it'll get my sunscreen off. Plus all the grime from being out. The air on Bombay is not the cleanest..

Just had a cup of warm water with half a lime squeezed in. Reading in bed, hopefully won't need to go pee all night.

Started my day with a pint of water with half a lemon squeezed in.
Breakfast half an hour later! Oats with sunflower seeds and ground flaxseeds.
One banana.

I ate 4 chapattis yesterday, with half a teaspoon of ghee smothered over each one of them.
I LOVE ghee.
That, along with the rest of my regular diet.
Accidently had a little sugar at work yesterday.

I've been using ground oats to wash my face for the past couple of days.
I love it, except it's hard to do in the morning, when I'm usually late for work.
Skin's nice and soft, only complaint is my nose feels so plugged! I'm thinking I'll wash my nose with facewash before the oats.

Clear from my diet! =)
A whole cluster of dark spots on my right cheek though. Really bringing me down.

you can still eat raw chocolate, it's natural and good for you. It has no sugar, just cacao nibs and cacao butter which comes from the Earth.

I've tried raw chocolate, but I can't handle the bitterness!
I did see this bar of sugar free chocolate made with almond milk though. Super expensive, but I'm going to treat myself. :)


I ate two thIngs off the menu yesterday and the day before, simply because I was away from home and starving.
Two samosas one evening and chicken Hakka noodles for dinner last night.
I'm going to be packing something hence forth do I always have good food to eat.

I started using neutrogena liquid cleanser (my skin has always loved neutrogena, don't know why I always stray) on Tuesday. I think it was the missing piece of the puzzle. Clear from my diet, neutrogena's helping SO much on the outside!

I've also been eating a handful of almonds with my oats.

What a fun day! Did my room up for Christmas and hit the town with my two besties.
I haven't been doing veggie juice daily, but had a glass of carrot juice this evening. And a nice large serving of broccoli.
went out to celebrate a fronds birthday. Here's what I had;
Penne pesto with no dairy at all
Bruschetta (I picked the cheese off)
Chicken Hawaiian salad (SO good, but I forgot to tell them to bring the dressings on the side, think I tasted a little cheese in there)
Lemon juice (I doubkd checked and they valid it was fresh but it tasted like concentrate to me)
A tiny bite of birthday cake
I should be fine, this was a one off thing.

Merry Christmas everyone! :)
Big Christmas lunch at a friends house.
Things that I ate that I normally don't;
White rice
A slice of garlic bread (white with butter)
A thin slice of chocolate mousse cake
I feel guilty, and I'm going to sleep it off. :[

Pasta with red sauce and sausages for dinner tonight. Pasta's safe right?
Had half a glass of orange juice yesterday. It wasn't freshly made. =\
I'm clear now and I must not stray!

Happy new year, everyone!

What I ate today:

Breakfast: Quaker oats with two teaspoons of psyllium husk
Lunch: fenugreek chapattis with red kidney beans and chickpeas
Snack: 20 almonds (yummers, will soak some for the next time though)
An omelette with a chapatti
Dinner: brown rice and raajma (red kidney beans) and a methi chapatti (fenugreek) with ghee
1 large banana


I've been having a little PH these past few days.
A little unclear on when to have it, but I think post breakfast works best. That way, I know I'll get enough water in throughout the day.

I've always been eating sweet potatoes at least three times a week.

I had one drink on the 31st, and ate a little cake, which I'm guessing is the cause of the one little spot I have near my upper lip.
And there's a rather large one on my forehead, very close to my hairline, that in certain is from the hair wax I used on the 31st.

Been clear other than that! Neglected the veggies in the middle, but going to the market tomorrow.

:)
