I was fully expecting Mr 60's to be back today, because I knowingly ate more salt than normal. I ate lots of things I have been missing like a wholemeal wrap, brown rice, sweet chilli sauce, 2 x higher carb protein bars and cheese. I also ate dinner really late because I got stuck at work.

Today, I want to leave you with a thought about fish oil tablets. I log mine in CK and add it to my total calories and fat grams because each of those little suckers has 10 calories and 1g of fat. I only have 3 in the morning but some people have up to 10 a day. That is 100 calories a day or 700 calories a week that you aren't counting. That amount of calories will make a difference to the speed of your fat loss.

I got some new soy protein powder yesterday and I tried it this morning. I prefer soy PP in my pancakes because it dissolves properly and cooks better. It was really YUM! Redbak SPI Vanilla.


  1. soy protein is much more reliable to cook with - and makes your pancakes chunkier whilst you're de chunking :)

    Katie, do you have a protein pancake recipe you could share! Thanks!!!

  3. Hi Katie,

    That is an interesting point about the fish oil tablets - it makes sense that an oil based product has calories but you dont really think about it when you buy them.
