Healthy Eating! :)

So, Im not on a 'diet' but Im definitely trying to eat a lot healthier, & it wouldnt hurt me to loose a stone or 2 either! On the 31st Dec I uploaded a video on Youtube which was a contest entry to Shay Carls 'ShayLoss' contest that he is doing. So I hope that entering that will spur me on & help me on the road to a healthier life style.
Im not into doing those faddy diets that include eating nothing but eggs & grapefruit or cabbage soup or eating raw veg for breakfast, Personally..I think they are pointless! who's gonna eat raw veg for breakfast for the rest of their lives? Breakfast is the most important meal of the day & it should be filling enough to set you on your day, a dish of broccoli or cauli isnt gonna do that! ..ur just gonna get a headache through lack of energy & then want to stuff ur face with chocolate for the sugar fix!
I want to make subtle changes to my diet so that its possible for me to keep it up long term & not just a short fix! I find it hard to eat meals at the usual times due to working night shifts & being at college, Tuesdays - Fridays I tend to just grab something when I get a chance which isnt always healthy! so I have been trying to prepare things so they are ready for when im hungry, and so far it seems to be working!
I have lost 7lbs in 2 weeks which Im really happy with because I havent been totally strict with what Im having & also I have been invited to eat out a twice over the past 2 weeks so even with that I still lost weight, so I think if I keep this up its gonna be really good for me!
The pictures below are of some of what I ate this week..






Happy Eating! :)
