I'm STILL not on a bloody diet!!

Michelle's post yesterday about people's funny attitudes to healthy eating was prophetic.

This afternoon I was in one of the kitchens at the office, draining the water out of a can of tuna for my afternoon snack, when someone I barely know came in and said Oh, so you're still on your diet then? I have never discussed dieting or weight loss or anything related with this person - we just happen to work on the same floor and have often been in the kitchen at the same time, preparing our lunch. Mine usually consists of something home-made, and involves at least some veggies. His is usually out of a can or a packet.

I showed remarkable restraint by not punching him in the face, and replied with a smile that I don't DO diets, I just prefer to eat healthy food most of the time.

He looked a bit bemused by the idea. Whatever.


Just for the record, this is what I ate today:

1. A huge bowl of porridge with vanilla whey and skim milk. And coffee.
2. Yoghurt, strawberries, Protein Crunch and a handful of Crunchola cereal. And coffee.
3. A big chunk of chicken breast, rice, broccoli, carrots and spinach (boring, but I wasn't feeling inspired this morning). Green tea.
4. Baklava and coffee
5. Corn thins, tuna and tomato
6. Chicken Balti (One of Patak's pre-made sauces - those are brilliant when time is short) with tomato, onion and spinach and some papadums.

Not one of my best gourmet days, but definitely plenty of food. And satisfying.

Total LOL...I am proud of you for not punching him, though he totally deserved it-dumb ass!
He's gonna really be asking questions in your final weeks of comp prep-bet you can't wait!
