Lent Week 4

This week has been super busy for me, which means that I have been unable to get home in time to make a decent lunch for the next day so has been pretty unexciting. Saying that, I have managed to get my 5 a day. Thursday was the hardest as we had clients in all day, which means I couldn't sneak out to eat an apple or pear as easily...and there were lots of choccy biscuits. I also went to a friends house for dinner, which meant I had to guess how much she put in of everything, so this one may not necessarily be accurate.

In light of the new research suggesting you need 7 fruit an veg a day (is that an April Fool? I'm not sure) I feel like I could easily push myself to eat 7. Though sometimes, I just want to eat beans on toast for tea, and that instantly lowers the amount I eat. Maybe that can be next year's challenge.
