Been eating quite healthily today. Did have a hypo at 5pm and ate an oaty chocolate biscuit. Come to bed with no night time snacking. Hopefully no hypos later.
Jealous of my sister whos just booked a holiday to Tunisia. I’m the only one of all my sister’s (4 of us) who doesn’t get a holiday. Moan moan I know, but I feel like moaning and stamping my feet.
I am off to The Bluecoat in Liverpool on Saturday afternoon. With a friend, to learn about the history of the beautiful building, we get a tour of it, it used to be a school.
On a late in work tomorrow but hoping to finish 5 so I can pop to the pub in the village as seeing some friends there (they may have eaten by time I get there!!!!)
10:30pm time for some reading and maybe another cup of tea!!!!!!
DID I manage a sugar free Saturday? Not really. Skipped breakfast before work, worked till 12 midday. Popped out fir lunch with Neil (Coronation Chicken Sandwich with salad and some crisps along with a large skinny latte.)
Hmmmm not too bad. 2 Fab lolly ices today. Tea was cottage pie, homemade with 2 small slices Rye bread and butter. And 1 lemon mousse, diet.
Could have been worse.
Hoping to at least do a short walk tomorrow. Shame really that Neil can barely walk anywhere (severe pain in his legs, knees and back). He is very much aware that he needs to lose weight, this is not however the sole cause of his pains for which he takes a lot of medications for. Not being able to move a lot does hinder weight loss. I know how much pain he is in and he rarely goes on about it, I see the pain in his face every day.
Just about managing to stick to the plan. Neil and I have been continuing our short nightly walks round the small block. Seemed a long day in work today but at least it’s Friday tomorrow.
Got a date to go into hospital to have my left shoulder done. MUA, or manipulation under anaesthetic. I go in on Friday 30 th May. Have to be in the hospital for 7:45am, I am one of the first on the Consultants list to get done. Should be home by about mid day. Felt really sick after the general anaesthetic and morphine/tramadol last time when I had my right shoulder done.
Silly I know but the one thing that bothers me about losing weight is my face going scraggy. Like sunken and drawn. Chubby cheeks are lovely. Double chins not so!
Though it pains me to say this, when you get to a certain age ie 40’s or 50’s, your face can well, wrinkle and sag. Chubby cheeks fill the wrinkles out.
Half day in work tomorrow, good!
I rarely do any food planning, which is often my downfall. I come home from work (having been in work 8am till 5pm) and am usually tired and hungry. Can’t be bothered cooking a healthy meal therefore eat whatever is easiest and quickest which is mostly not healthy.
I should stock my freezer with healthy meals to cook, plan and make meals ready the night before or give Neil or J instructions to cook a healthy meal ready for when I get home (happens once in a blue moon)!
What have I eaten today?
Lunch-jacket potato, ham, salad,egg,cheese and a Muller yogurt.then a cookie and a piece of birthday cake plus to pieces of vintage cheddar. No planning.
Ohhhhh made a lively chickpea dish tonight.
Chickpeas, cauliflower,sweet potato, tomatos and onions with cumin, ginger, tumeric, chilli powder.
Had some this evening and put some aside for lunch tomorrow.
Feeling very positive about my eating. Neil and J and R are cutting down, though R is tending to missing meals which is not good. Trying to encourage her to have 3 meals a day with healthy snacks. Luckily she loves most fruit. Even J is eating fruit!
Bread and takeaways is the biggest thing they overeat on. Often they’ve ordered the takeaway before I have time to say anything. I try to make meals we’ll all eat but we all like such different things.
My chickpea curry!!!!! Needless to say but none of the others would eat it, I think it’s delicious.
Whoo hoo, last day in work tomorrow then off for 11 days.
Was in work all day today. Took mince with gravy carrot and onion for lunch, very filling. Had v healthy tea, bacon and carrot and Swede mash and a Muller light yogurt.
Had a kit kat 5.5 syns, a options drink 2 syns and some wholemeal toast (b choice) in evening.
Am doing very well sticking to the slimming world plan so far. Now if I could just get rid of stresses and relax, am sure I’d feel even better.
Sitting in work, just had my lunch of a lovely homade pastryless quiche made with
All mixed together and baked. Very tasty.
Wish it was 5pm (going home time).
Can’t believe that I’m awake at 4am still and I’ve got work in 4 hrs.
Was v bad on eating this evening, had 2 desserts of tiramisu, Tescos. Also 2 mini mini donuts. Topped off with a non too healthy tea of a breaded turkey thing with 2 potato waffles and 1 and 1/2 slices bread and butter.
Think I’ll hop on the scales in work later this morning!
Did my shoulder exercises today, shoulders feeling great though still some pain when I’m in bed. Thank goodness for Zapain.
Got weighed at work today, appear to have gained a lb or two. Not to worry, I expected it with having gone away and had a thoroughly good time as you can see!
So, currently weigh 73 kgs. Hmmmm……..must hop on my home scales in the morning and see what I am in stones/lbs.
Was v naughty at lunch in work and bought a sandwich from the hospital shop instead of eating the tin of tomato and basil soup I had taken in for lunch. Chicken and mayo sandwich on light rustic (light as air) bread was hardly worth almost 300 calories.
Ham and tomato sandwich for tea at home – yep, more bread.
Avoided a chocolate binge. Asked Neil to pop to shop for Friday Night Treats ( that’s what Friday’s are for yes?). But changed my mind at last minute so he didn’t pop to shop.
The more I avoid binging the better. Cutting down on all the rest of the extra snacking will hopefully be ‘the norm’ eventually. As will daily exercise!
