Most of you who know me or follow me on here will know that I eat regularly (and try to eat well when I can). I like to prepare my food and have it available for when I need it. I drink plenty of water, exercise a lot and rarely get headaches.
Today I was lucky enough to be a guest at BBC Radio Scotland at the Edinburgh Fringe. I was up earlier than normal to get a train through to Edinburgh, had my usual filling breakfast of eggs, berries and mocha drink along with some water, vitamins and omega threes.
I walked (25 mins) to the train station, walked around at lunchtime and walked home from the train station. In between I watched MacAulay and Co with Fred MacAulay and Susan Calman go out in the morning, had lunch and then watched The Culture Show with Janice Forsyth go out.
So where did I go wrong?
I didn’t eat my prepared food.
I went for the easy option.
I had an egg mayo roll because it was easy and it was about the only thing on offer. I had water too, and my mocha drink.
But I didn’t touch any of my prepared food.
I ate what others ate, even though I wouldn’t normally touch or choose to eat a roll.
Even on the train, I was sitting with a girl from work, so didn’t eat what I wanted to.
At home, at around 6pm, with a very sore head, (as if it were medicine of some sort) I ended up eating the lot:
Greek yoghurt, oats and berries
And I finished off with 2 x 400mg ibuprofen to see if that would help clear it. Put simply. I didn’t eat enough, and what I did eat was crap!
Back to normality tomorrow (eating every 3-4 hrs). 🙂
