Bento diet – Day 8

Before I get started!!! My friend over at Eats Amazing has opened a UK based bento shop!!! Yay!! Go check her out!!!

Ok back to the diet!

Today sucked! I pretty much have up today!


I had some porridge with some golden syrup mixed in for sweetener. It was delicious and luckily none of the porridge decided to throw itself out of the bowl this time!


I was walking to my granddad’s which meant I didn’t have time to get much for dinner. I had a small doughnut if that counts?


This is where I completely gave up. I felt so drained from the walk to my granddad’s and I just felt so deflated that I buckled and I ended up getting a takeaway. I had some pizza, chips and some garlic bread. I know, shame on me!


I walk to my granddad’s at least once a week and he lives an hour away from me.
The pedometer app I use is meant to work in the background. And it does. Until it gets to around 700 then it stops. So when I got to my granddad’s and it said 700 steps I could’ve cried. Because I knew I wasn’t going to “hit my target” visually. Anyway it worked on the way back and as it came to 6899 that means I did 6199 on the way back so times that by two and I technically did 12398 there and back ๐Ÿ™‚



Bento Diet – Day 7

It’s been a week already! Madness!!

Today wasn’t a great day. I wasn’t feeling to great but I had to go to town which meant I relied on junk for dinner ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I finally had some porridge, albeit a smaller portion as 2/3 of it spilled over ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

For dinner I had a Chicken Mayo from McDonalds. I know, naughty!

For tea I had a yummy bento, you want pics? Sorry but this bento is for a halloween bento blog hop so you’ll have to come back on the 16th if you want to see it ๐Ÿ™‚


Close but not close enough ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Ah well I have the huge walk to my granddad’s tomorrow so that should make up for today!

Bento Diet – Day 6

Today was a REALLY bad day for exercise and food. So I’m thinking Sundays are going to be my “relax” day!

I had honey waffle cereal for breakfast.


I had ham,cheese and leek pasta in my Black+Blum Thermo Pot.

For tea I had a great Sunday dinner prepared by my partner. We had chicken and bacon pie, lots of vegetables, mash, Yorkshire puddings and Hula Hoop potato hoops.
Oh and gravy of course.

I barely moved off of the couch today. Saving the pokemon world was much more important!!!


Bento Diet – Day 5

For breakfast I had honey waffle cereal, I keep meaning to have porridge but I forget to prepare it ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

For dinner I had a small 1 person pizza. I didn’t take a picture as pizza is pretty much the same everywhere right?

For tea I had two prawn mayo sandwiches but as I was at the in law’s I didn’t take a picture as I don’t want them thinking I’m crazy… Well crazier!



I’ll admit, I’m surprised I hit my target, the app I use decided to freeze at around 3000 steps and just would continue counting until around an hour later. Mix that with lots of Pokemon playing time I really didn’t think I’d hit my goal!

Bento Diet – Day 4


I had some “strawberry pillows”, not super healthy cereal but better than nothing at all I guess.


I didn’t really have any dinner, I was a little preoccupied with a certain game that wasn’t meant to be released until tomorrow. But I did have some chocolate… Not sure if that’s a good or bad thing!


I made a chicken and prawn curry with rice and naan bread. It was really tasty but very spicy! I tend to throw in all sorts of spices when making a curry, so what might start out as a madras ends up anything but!


I really didn’t think I was going to make my target today as most of it was spent playing that mysterious, released-before-it’s-release-date game. Luckily a quick trip to Blockbusters added the extra steps I needed ๐Ÿ™‚

Bento Diet – Day 3

Today was a stressful day ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I had an early appointment at the doctors which meant I didn’t get any breakfast before the appointment then because I had my blood taken I felt queasy and didn’t want to eat after.

When it got to dinner time I had a chicken sandwich. I’m sure everyone knows what a sandwich looks like so no picture.


For tea I had chicken nuggets, hula hoop potato rings and beans in my Black+Blum Box Appetit.

Yes I know not รผber healthy but at least the portion size is smaller ๐Ÿ™‚

For a snack I had some dried fruit. The portion was too big and it took me three attempts to finish it. But at least it was grazing instead of just stuffing my face ๐Ÿ™‚

As for my exercise:


I’m glad that I’m nearly reaching double my target each day ๐Ÿ™‚

Bento Diet – Day 2

Today was a very busy day! I had to go to the hospital for a quick check up (wasn’t so quick but hey) and then had to go to the doctors with my partner. Yes, we’re both falling apart!

Anyway away from the doom and gloom, here’s how my day went food-wise.


An apple. Again I was out early and had to rush so no proper breakfast for me ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


Mushroom and vegetable stir fry.


I was a little naughty but I did say I’d only eat stuff if it’d fit in a bento, a chocolate bar would technically fit in a bento ๐Ÿ˜‰
So I had a white chocolate and cookie Hershey’s bar. It was delicious and I’ve been eating healthy so I’m not feeling too guilty ๐Ÿ™‚


Pasta with cauliflower cheese and spicy chicken steak in my Black+Blum Sandwich on board .

As for exercise:


Yay! I can’t believe how easily I rack up the steps!
