HAM Plan – Day 10

Woohoo, we made it to double figures on the HAM Plan. Momentum rules!

Day TEN, one third there! I’m solo parenting this week while Piero is working with a group of athletes down south. I got Evan to bed early last night and today I was out of bed at 6AM. Edith brought me a present in Venice yesterday

I named him “Burt”

I couldn’t let a homemade gingerbread cookie go for too long. On the other hand, cookies for breakfast again? I decided if I balanced it out with some protein it would be fine.

Evan had swimming after school and just before I commenced chauffeur duties I looked on the pool centre website and discovered that on Mondays there’s a lane available for lap swimming. Score!

It was heaven. There was only one other guy in the 50 metre lane. I stopped every once in awhile to watch Evan’s swim practice which kept me entertained and distracted from my own efforts. I swear, it feels like I found two free hours to my day.

The HAM plan rules were obeyed!

  • Breakfast – Caffe latte + 2 gingerbread cookies + 1 boiled egg
  • Lunch – Salad with carrots, lettuce, raisins, pumpkin seeds and cheese + 3 rice crackers + 2 mandarins
  • Dinner – 1 chicken thigh + sweet potato
  • Exercise – 1900 metres swim
  • Weight – * +0.5kg *

Working from home today, finishing up a foxy little Up & Running project that we hope to launch very soon at long long last!

I’ve not felt quite on top of the HAM today. I’ve been a total Desk Zombie and made some lazy food choices. Then this arvo I struggled with some writing and next thing I knew, I’d Zombied into the kitchen and put another coffee on, as if that would somehow make me find the right words.

A latte is not a huge amount of extra calories, but like Julia on Day 7 it’s not the food itself but the feeling. I didn’t like the zoning out, the not really enjoying; the lack of mindfulness. Zoning out over and over is how I got here in the first place. But this is a practice, and tomorrow I’ll have the opportunity to choose differently.

  • Breakfast – Latte. Wholemeal roll with banana and almond butter.
  • Lunch – Cheddar, tomato and rhubarb chutney toastie. Apple.
  • Afternoon – Another latte.
  • Dinner – Leftover vegetable korma
