Stuffed full! – High Carb day

I am stuffed full!

It’s my ‘High Carb’ day and whilst it’s hard to really know if I’ve eaten enough carbs today, I have to say that I am utterly stuffed (even after a good strength session this morning and 7.4M running with a Running Coaching client tonight).

That, along with the fact that I’m not craving chocolate or something sweet after my dinner is perhaps a sure sign that I’ve eaten a. enough and b. plenty of carbs for my high carb day. 🙂

Here’s what I ate today, my high carb day (to support my strength training):

Pre workout
Two tablespoons Greek yoghurt, half a banana

— 50 min Strength workout —

Breakfast
2 Scrambled Eggs, Melon, Strawberries, Greek yoghurt, Pine Nuts.
Latte.
Water.

Snack 11am
Mocha protein shake with 20g oats.

Lunch
Chicken box: tomatoes, cucumber, chicken, chia seeds, raisins, flaked almonds, extra virgin olive oil,

Scotch broth soup.
Water.

Snack 3pm
Oats, Greek yoghurt, grapes.
Extra portion of Grapes.

Snack 5pm
2 oatcakes, peanut butter and strawberries
(Before a long easy run).

— 7.4M / 1:28 hr easy run —

Dinner
Baked sweet potato and chicken, with cherry tomatoes and cucumber.
Water.

Its no wonder I’m:
– stuffed full.
– not craving chocolate or sweet foods.
– can’t face eating another ounce of food!

Now I just hope I survive the next few days with two work Christmas meals out. 🙂
