1151 kcal dinner :o)

Ohyes.  Curry.  1151kcal dinner :o)  Home made lamb korma (with a buttload of chilli in it) and curried vegetables (chick peas, spinach and mushrooms) with home made peshwari naan (with flaked almonds, raisins and dessicated coconut).  My belly is sooooo full!  The only improvement would have been had I used tomatoes in the vegetable curry.  The two curries were very differently flavoured but could have done with a bit of tanginess in one of them.  Just what I needed after a pretty good gym session today of my current routine with added cycle there and back, pressups (3x10) and negative motion pull-ups (3x5x4s).

Still under maintenance for the day and happy with how the week has gone.  I'll be cruising for 0.5-1.0lbs fat lost, but we'll see when I do the body-fat measurement tomorrow.

B - toasted wholegrain, seeded bagel with butter and Marmite
L - Discovery wholemeal tortilla filled with Philadelphia Extra Light, ham and lettuce
S - 1 scoop MP Max in semi-skimmed milk
S - strawberries and banana with Elmlea Single Light
D - lamb korma with curried vegetables and peshwari naan

If anyone wants recipes, just shout!  (though the naan needs refining as the filling was a bit dry)

  1. That sounds like my boyfriends perfect dinner minus the lamb!

  2. I feel your pain! I started the whole calorie count thing last week and have been really cutting back to make sure I don't have too many. It is just completely unbelievable how quickly they mount up! How did you work out your calories used? From figures on exercise machines or do you have a watch?

  3. Hi Jessica!

    I use a heart rate monitor (HRM)as it's a lot more accurate than the estimates you get from gym machines or online calculators - the HRM has information on your height, weight, age, resting heart rate (roughly a guide to your general fitness level) and heart rate (a measure of effort) during exercise, so it has a much better chance of estimating how much work you put in.

    The curry was great and I'd earned it, so no worries there :o)
