    The devil made me do it.

    Do you like that title? I bet you do!!! I caved , we missed breakfast as we shot out the door to hit the massive carboot sale 15 miles away, that was the first mistake, then when we left at 11am....they all wanted MacDonalds, Big Mac and fries. Yes AND FRIES. I ate it all, with a smile on my lips and a hum in my heart.......but then it made me so ill, before we got home I knew my body didn't like that stuff anymore ( my mouth,however, adored it) when we got home my body threw that junk out and left me in no minds as to not try it again!!)
    I didn't feel to bad about eating it, sort of mildly disappointed but not beating myself up.
    Tomorrow will see me back on the straight and narrow.

    But it's not easy!! Grandpa keeps bringing FOOOOOOOOD to the house, cream cakes, cookies, more cakes........

    1 slice sourdough toast
    ryvita and marmite
    Thai chicken curry and rice ( curry made with campbells fat free soup)

    I DID NOT EAT SCONES AND CREAM. I am, quite honestly, marvellous,

    I had to admit....

    What a thing, this morning, I had to admit something to myself.
    I never thought I would have to do it but it was unavoidable.
    You remember the jeans, the 'skinny' ones. These ones?

    Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

    well, this morning I had to put them aside because they are just, well, I haven't lost anymore weight, I still weigh the same but the jeans....

    Not just 'oooh I might be able to squash into a smaller size now' too big, actually hey, these things aren't going to stay up on their own too big, 3 times yesterday they actually slithered down my bum, nearly lost them in the street too big.
    HOW FABULOUS IS THAT?? I had to delve into the wardrobe and get another pair, a SMALLER pair, an I feel great pair.
    While we are out today I will make sure that I am in at least one picture in my smaller jeans that one day, if I don't eat cream teas and fish and chips, will also be TOO BIG and slip down and get put away or thrown away. But for today I shall wear them and marvel that they don't dig into any part of my body even though they have not even a teeny bit of stretch to them. Nothing tastes as good as this morning feels.

    I think I like the buzz....

    I find that when the temptations are huge I am not tempted!
    Grandpa is here with a pile of goodies, there will be pizzas, dinner out, cakes, breads, chips and ....well you get the picture. What happens is I feel the buzz of saying no. thank goodness.

    Slice of sour dough toast ( oh heaven)
    lunch out, roast beef, vegetables , 2 small roasted potatoes.
    Small portion of rice and chicken korma.

    unimaginative I'm afraid!!

    no time to be inventive today!
    Ryvita and marmite
    Spaghetti bolognese.


    Every weekend I pick up 2 ready cooked chickens, it sees us through the weekend with sandwiches and main meals, today I made a mushroom and garlic sauce, ( campbells fat free soup, does just what it says on the tin, great sauces by adding whatever you fancy) threw some peas in, some lemon pepper and some of the chicken, served with rice. DELICIOUS!
    dinner was good old ryvita and marmite.
    I am trying to remember to drink more water....wash the fat away!!

    Day 2 of new beginnings

    Tortilla with chicken breast.
    Cajun chicken , rice and corn.And a forced resoltion to walk because the damn car broke again...

    Oh pthhhhhhh.

    I gained a lb..just one, enough to make me realise that unless I get a grip, it will ALL creep back on and I will be back to sqaure one and miserable!!
    I LOVE feeling good and imagining how much better I feel when all the excess is gone. COME ON AND GET WITH IT!

    Ham sandwich
    Spaghetti, with a delcious sauce, tomatoes, garlic, celery, and I bought some pork and jalepeno sausage, I had one, they had a kick to them that made my lips tingle but they were GOOD!
    A good day....lets try again tomorrow.

    Oh the PRESSURE!!

    I'm here....why am I finding this SO hard again??
    I have been eating fruit for breakfast, maybe that's it? Perhaps the slimfast was the key?

    Having the boys home puts things out too, the routine is gone. I'm really not pigging out, still keeping the path straight and narrow but GRRRRRRR it's easy to pick, if we're out pick pick.....

    The main meals aren't a problem. I forget lunch, that may be a bad thing. Because the boys are home there are more snacks here, when they are at school we don't have the snacky stuff around.

    Help me out people.
    Lou you are a Godsend,
    King....you know you're my boy, I'd feed you the good food if you weren't so far away and didn't have a hundred people right there more able to cook and care for you. I need telling t o stick with it more. I am getting weighed tomorrow, I hope I haven't gained, sure I haven't lost. I just need to get back in the swing. Heaven help me when grandpa and Kara are here. Maybe that will make it easier actually?
    The cake was great, I had a regular slice and it was SO heavy and rich I am certain I shan't eat anymore!!

    Ok, tomorrow I will start posting what I eat again. Ptttttttttthhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    I know, I am being hopeless at blogging my food stuff.

    I made a meatloaf tonight with lean steak mince, some delicious garlic crotouns crunched in there, celery chopped really fine, onions finely chopped too, served it with peas and rice. Not bad at all.

    When the day is over before you know it and haven't had a problem at all with the dieting. Great.

    1 slice toast, fruit.
    Ryvita dairylea light.
    Teryaki beef and rice.

    what did I eat today?

    Hmmm think I was a bit rubbish, just sort of snacked at the pool with Seth and Isaac!
    Stuffed marrow, stuffed it with turkey rashers, tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic and some posh beans that I can't remember the name of!!

    Good seed

    I LOVE these!! they are slightly salted Hemp seeds, oh my, no need for me to sneak any salty chips anymore, these are nutty and crunchy and salty and DELICIOUS!! They are really high in Omega 3, 6 and 9.....I love them just as a snack, they are local and I am going to try their other products too. The wensite is www.goodseed.co.uk MMMMM


    I am definately back in the grove. Thank goodness. I have even made an appt for a weight check on thursday, I don't think I have lost any but I need to feel that I am back on the path.

    2 tortillas and ham
    ( found some great wheat tortillas that are SO soft, buy one get one free too, cool!)
    H made Chicken Tikka and rice, I am still amazed at the difference in my portion sizes. I eat about a 1/3 of the amount I used to and am always So full. I love my special bowl that looks like it's a lot and looks satisfying, gone are those big old steak plates piled high!!
