Food Diary – week ending 26th April 2015


Good evening ๐Ÿ™‚

I have enjoyed my sunday off so much today, this morning having breakfast in bed (weetabix to be precise) and then got up and got ready and went for a ‘walk/run’ with Bodynamics out in Howth. I am NOT a runner, infact i HATE running, its probably my most hated thing to do ever ๐Ÿ˜ฆ but i tried! We started up at the carpark in Howth Summit and went all the way down and then back up hill. I ran half way down and walked the rest of the way, that was as good as i did haha! I can say i enjoyed it because i walked most of it ๐Ÿ™‚


Apologies i never had the chance to do my food diary for last week, i only managed to get the workout video done including my snaps of the clean food i ate during that week you can watch that HERE …. this week, even though i done 4 classes, we got no videos… collie was having a week off from recording ๐Ÿ™‚

Last weekend i was away in the Isle of Man with my amazing friend Rach so didnt get home until late sunday evening and then i was starting my new job so i just didnt have the chance to do the post.

Besides that, my eating while i was in the Isle of Man was seriously crazy, you name anything bad, im sure i ate it!!!!

Having started my new job earlier this week i am finally back into a routine, something i really missed, and something that i find makes it much easier to stick with the clean eating.

So lets get started on this weeks food… i’ll start with my shopping list.

This is only the second shop i have done in the 3 weeks. I dont really ever have to do a shop once a week. This type of shop tends to last us for a couple of weeks, but sometimes we need to get some fresh veg, but havent yet since doing this shop earlier this week…

This weeks shop cost me a total of โ‚ฌ90.69 from Aldi.

Whats on my shopping list :

– 3 pack peppers
– bag of mixed peppers
– 2 bags of baby spinach
– 1 bag of rocket
– 2 Tin Chunky chopped toms
– net of onions
– 2 large greek yohgurt
– bag of carrots
– roast chicken pieces
– tin of kidney beans
– 6 packs of salmon
– bacon medallions
– 2 packs streaky bacon
– 2 tin sweetcorn
– goats cheese log
– punnet of cherry toms
– 2 bags Almonds
– carved crumbed ham x2
– baby beetroot
– courgettes
– weetabix
– 2 sweet potato
– punnet mushrooms
– 4 bags of mixed nuts
– bag of flaked almonds
– 2 tins of tuna in brine
– tin chickpeas
– cucumber
– sugar snaps
– mange tout
– scallions
– tenderstem brocolli
– 2 heads of brocolli
– strawberries
– raspberries
– blueberries
– blackberries
– jar of gherkins
– 18 eggs
– pack of minute steaks


You will note i didn’t get much meat as we still have chicken and meat left from a couple of weeks ago that we keep in the freezer and just take it out during the week as we need it.

A big thanks to my trainer Collie again for another great week training, its safe to say that my body is aching and i love that pain, it reminds me of the work i have put in this week!
