Really wanted biscuits today.....

Evening all

Bad cravings today.  Wanted biscuits (we have a lot for the xmas period and to take to my sisters), then I wanted sweets as I was making handful of sweets for the kids xmas eve hamper and filled those clear gloves with sweets and choc and then I put all the rest of the sweets and choc in to the fruit bowl (had to throw out the fruit as it was rotten - kids totally stopped eating it, wont even eat the raisens in their lunch boxes at the moment either :() so will let them off a few days of fruit until sweets gone.  They are still getting plenty of veg and do have orange juice so a few days wont hurt.  And NO, they cant help themselves, they have to finish their tea before they get something out of fruit bowl.

B - peanut butter
L - ham salad
T - omelette pizza (I know, I am fed up of omelettes but  I really wanted pizza so this was the best option)

Snacks - none

Drinks - 3 cups of tea and 1 pint water

Exercise - none

Joints - fingers ached a bit earlier when I was sewing but other than that, ok

Asthma - fine today

Having a little glass of red this evening.  And an early night.  I miss the days that I was only getting 5 hours sleep, I seem to need a lot more now. Maybe its because of the cold dark nights.  Who knows.

Snacks - none

Drinks - 3 cups of tea and 2 pints water

Exercise - does rushing around all day count? lol

Joints - aching, i need to cut out tomatoes again :(

Feel so much better when I know I have eaten 3 meals a day, as yogurt for breakfast and nothing until tea really isnt enough, I know that, but still do it.  And I did enjoy my lunch today.

Tomorrow we are carving 3 pumpkins so I will have the seeds and flesh to make pumpkin soup out of and the seeds will need to dry over night and then be baked for 20 mins for a snack.  Maybe that will be good for when I dont have time to eat lunch.  Or I could crush them up and put them on my salads! :D   Must try different seasoned ones as well.  Might have to buy more pumpkins........

B - 3 rashers of bacon, 1 egg omelette with pickled onion cheese (not as nice as stilton), 1 fried egg, tinned toms
L - again, after all that not a chance

Snacks - bites of cheese in afternoon (it had caramel in it, naughty, naughty, naughty)

Exercise -  none

joints - fine today

asthma - bad this afternoon, could be because of cold or that I was sorting through stuff so dusty.  Think I will increase my inhaler for a few days.

Half term tomorrow, I am really hoping that I get my 3 meals a day, I do like my food, and I have loads of lovely salad stuff to eat.  Will be doing the roast tomorrow, pork i think, as I do like crackling. :D

Off to do some crochet.

I Love Lamb

Hiya all

I got lucky the other day, I managed to get 4 lamb chops reduced from £8 to £2 so as I forgot to get the chicken out of the freezer last night we had these instead.  Very nice!  Must do better at remembering stuff.  Wonder if its a side effect of low carb or just plain old, old age!

So, I bought a pumpkin today, apparently this is not enough, I need to have 2 MORE so all 3 kids can draw on them and I can cut out their drawing.  So as pumpkin seeds are low carb I was thinking of cleaning them, covering in seasoning and baking for a healthy snack.  Wonder if it will work ok.  Suppose I will find out soon :D

I know this is carb based blog but my eldest son brought home a letter today from school saying he was on the gifted and talented register for reading (he was reading harry potter at 5! :o) and numeracy.  How proud am I!  :D  Now do I celebrate with a gert big bar of choccy or and even bigger bar of choccy.... joking!  honest! lol

Friday again, still not sleeping properly.  We have our bed infront of the radiator so when I wake up and want to know if I will be getting up soon (so is it worth me trying to go back to sleep) rather than sit up and look at my alarm clock, I put my hand through the back of the bed and touch the radiator, if cold I can go back to sleep.  I seem to have done this a lot this week.

Have an excellent Friday night.

Choccy, Choccy and More Choccy

Evening

So, its my 12 year wedding anniversary.  Wow, 12 years!  I had work this morning (I love my new job), then visited my friend and then went shopping for wine for tonight.  Whilst in a particular supermarket I spotted Gentleman Jack that hubby has spoken about on several occasions on offer so got it for him.  Well, I have worked 2 mornings this week that were unplanned so will have extra money and hubby is a very happy man. (so hopefully less moaning for a few days at least lol).  Hubby gave me the tin of roses, and yes I have eaten far too many.  And yes I am drinking wine and yes we had takeaway.

B - homemade choccy yogurt (not the best but quick and easy and dd wanted me to make it)
L - nothing, didnt get time
T - parmo (could have been worse, could have had pizza, infact wish I had as that is the worst parmo I have ever had - not really had that many, only moved 'up north' 5 years ago but still not the best!)

Snacks - roses (the choccy not the flowers lol) and 2 haribo sweets that Wanda brought round for the kids

Drinks - 3 cups of tea, 2 pear cidre's and a glass of wine

Exercise - not today

Joints - thumb aching a bit today

Not been a bad day, dd and ds1 make us anniversary cards when they got home from school.  Ds2 was too busy playing cars with Wanda the Wicked Witch Sock Monkey but at least he was entertained! :D

Been thinking about what I have eaten this week (did I say I didnt lose any this week, stayed the same as Monday) and I think the excuses reasons are that 1, I havent drank enough water, 2, I havent been consistant with eating proper meals and 3, I am eating a lot of cheese.  So I know what to work on next week. :D

Ooooppppsssss

Evening all

I have been naughty.  Again.  Had pizza for tea. Ah well, I didnt eat a whole one and I put it down to not eating lunch.  As the hole is fixed I have been trying to get a bit of organisation back to the house so didnt stop for much today.

B - berries with double cream - my new fav breakfast. :D
L - nothing
T - pizza and beer

Snacks - nothing

Drinks - 2 cups of tea and 2 beers :o

Exercise - none again

joints - been ok

Asthma - seems to be ok even after all the dust this morning and pizza this evening

I was trying on some clothes earlier.  Work clothes, pre kids stuff.  And I still fit 1 jacket and 2 pairs of trousers.  I can get on and nearly fit 2 suits, lots of skirts and loads of trousers. :D  Hopefully I will be able to get into them again soon. And yes, I know that means no more pizza! lol  Well, except for the leftovers tomorrow ;)

Have a great evening

A Cheeky Beer Anyone?

Hiya

Another busy day here, was in a Safeguarding course until 1.30pm, then home to sort a few things then pick up kids then a bit of shopping.  So not had time to drink much.

B - almonds (forgot the berries again)
L - ham and cheese salad (i did get the berries out this morning but still frozen by lunch time)
T - mince and veg with salad

Snacks - none

Drinks - 1 cup of tea and 1 beer (naughty)

Our floor is finally finished.  When I say finished, we still have to buy the underlay and laminate or whatever is going down.  But it is safe, no holes for kids to jump in and they fixed the crumbling wall.  So alls good!  And no more draughts! :D

The hole is bigger! :o

Hiya

Finally we are getting the hole inside out doorway fixed. Yay!

This is how it looked first thing

This is how it looked at lunch time :o

 
and this is how it looks now
 
 
The kids have been warned to be very careful.  They couldnt do much more on the floor as they had to sort out the crumbling brick work under the door.  Now that is done the floor will be finished tomorrow! :D
 
Anyhoo,
 
B - cheese - wasnt hungry again
L - leftover sausagemeat, sage & onion balls and salad
T - leftover chicken and salad

Joints - ok
 
Asthma - ok
 
 
Really must try and remember to get the berries out of freezer tonight for tomorrows breakfast, thats the only reason why I bought double cream.

Want to eat and eat and eat


Hiya

I really want to eat.  I am not hungry but I just want to eat.  Doesnt help that I have made jam tarts and smartie cookie cake for the kids for snacks and lunch boxes and I ate 1 smartie, I think thats what set me off.  Ha, more like I am just a pig and trying to use it as an excuse.

B - nothing, still feeling full of cold and couldnt forse myself to eat
L - ham and cheese salad
T - roast chicken with sausagemeat/sage/onion balls and cabbage with gravy

snacks - none

drinks - 3 cups of tea and 1 pint water

exercise - cleaning

joints - bit clicky but not aching

asthma - ok

I felt like having sugar in my tea today so I had 2 like I used to and had to throw it away.  Then I tried 1 and sitll, too sweet so back to no sugar.  Maybe tomorrow if I feel like it I will have 1/2 teaspoon?????

I really hope I feel better tomorrow, and it stops raining, the garden is flooded and poor Rex refuses to leave the house for his walk.

Wet and Windy Day

Evening all

It has been a wet and windy day today.  Not very nice at all.  And dark.  I dont like walking Rex in the dark so need to start planning my day a bit better to take him after the school run.  Of course may still need to get up early and put up with the dark on days I work which, at the moment, is only on a Monday.

Weigh in: 10st 5lbs (put on 2lbs - damn that beer! lol)

B - omelette
L - ham and cheese salad
T - gammon with salad (forget to get the chicken out of freezer last night)

Drinks - 2 cups of tea and 1 pint water

Exercise - 20 min walk in rain :(

Joints - not too bad today

Asthma - fine today

So I had a 2lb weight gain.  Hopefully it was from the beer/wine and maybe even a bit of bloatedness so  hopefully will be gone by Friday.  Got a day of mad cleaning to do tomorrow so that should burn more fat. :D

Home Sweet Home

Hiya

Well, I am back from my sisters.  Lots of food and wine and beer :o 

I put my food for Friday but here is the pizza base again as it didnt come out on Friday.



 
 
It was nice but I still had to eat it with a knife and fork as it was crumbly.  Hubby tried the base and thinks it had a marmite taste, I didnt notice that.  But at £5 for enough flour for 2 pizzas, I wont be buying it.
 
Saturday we had a fry up for breakfast and then I didnt have lunch.  But I did eat lots of cheese and meat for tea (and a bit of salad).  But I had 3 beers and then wine afterwards.
 
 
So now onto today
 
B - bacon, eggs, sausages and grilled tomato
L - packet of almonds (not really hungry)
T - my turkey thigh mince leftovers
 
Drinks - lots of tea and bit of water
 
Back posting properly tomorrow.  Hopefully I wont have done too much damage.

Day 18

Hiya

It has been a miserable day today, wet and horrible.  Was not impressed on my walk this morning.  I had to slightly cut the walk short as there was another dog and as my dog has LDS (little dog sydrome) and barks at every other dog it sees I decided to turn around, and it was raining so didnt really need much of an excuse.

Here is my little walking partner looking dapper wearing his new doggy bandana

 
B - omelette
L - cheese and ham salad
T - omelette pizza.  Had tinned toms, onion, pepper, cheddar, mozzerella, mexicano cheese, ham, pepperoni and sliced tomato (last one!)
 
Snacks - none
 
Drinks - 4 cups of tea and 1 pint water
 
exercise - 30 min dog walk and running around like a lunatic!
 
Joints - been fine today
 
asthma - fine again
 
Think I am coming down with a cold.  Probably from getting wet this morning.  Early night for me I think, just hope it doesnt make it a too early morning as well.....

Day 17

Evening all

Not stopped today.  Feeling quite tired now.  Anyhoo....

B - homemade yoghurt
L - steaklettes with cheese on a bed of salad and baby spinache leaves
T - low carb toad in the hole with 1 carrot and cabbage.  I made the toad in the hole by mixing egg and milk for the 'real' one and poured around 50ml into a seperate container, to that I added 3 tablespoons of ground almonds.  I put it in fridge and when I got it out it was thick so I added water.  I cooked for 20 mins.  And here it is.
It did kind of get destroyed a bit when I took it out though as you can see.  It tasted a bit nutty and bitty but when gravy was on it, it soaked it up and was nice.  I will be having it again.
 
Snacks - none
 
Drinks - 4 cups of tea and 1 pint water
 
Exercise - 35 minute brisk walk
 
Joints - aching a bit (still got tomatoes left to eat :( )
 
Asthma - ok today
 
Woke again at 5am but went straight back to sleep and alarm woke me up at 6.30am.  Felt fine all day but tired now.

Whoo Hoo

Hiya

Well, we had some good news today.  'The hole' in our floor is going to be fixed end of next week.  Am so pleased especially as its letting in water and cold due to the brickwork falling apart.  So I went and got a bottle of wine to celebrate.  Naughty I know, but it is chardonnay so not as bad as a sweet one. :D

B - homemade yogurt
L - bacon, 2 fried eggs, 1 fried tomato and 1 fried large mushroom covered in cheese
T - gammon with huge salad.  Too much salad, am totally stuffed now.  The cheese is mexicano (got it whoopsied) and very nice.
 
 
Snacks - none
 
Drinks - 3 cups of tea and 1 pint of water (must do better)
 
Exercise - 30 minute brisk walk and 15 minute school run brisk walk (after dropping kids off lol)
 
Joints - aching, will not buy tomatoes for a bit as if I have them I will eat them
 
Asthma - been fine all day
 
Great news on the sleep.  I went to bed around 11.30pm ish last night and the alarm woke me up at 6.30pm.  And I am not feeling tired now.  Wouldnt it be nice if that continued. :D

Day 15

Evening all

Still not cheating.  Just watching hubby eat whatever he wants and drink whatever he wants.  But I have stayed strong!  Go me!!!! :D

B - homemade yogurt
L - leftover pork, cheese and salad
T - mince (mince with tinned toms, celery, onion, pepper) with salad and baby spinache.  As you can see I put far too much cheese on.


Snacks - none

Drinks - 2 cups of tea and 3 pints water

Exercise - 35 min brisk walk and running around busy all day

Joints - my thumb has been really aching today, not sure if its all the tomatoes I ate over the weekend or if its because its a bit chilly

Asthma - still fine :D

This is the view I had when I walked to the beach this morning.  Looked nicer in real life.
 
I woke up at 5am after going to bed at midnight.  Thankfully I managed to get back to sleep.  Apparently football is on tonight (my usual excuse for wine/beer and choccy) so will do some sewing instead.

Cant Beat a Bit of Crackling

Hello

Quiet day today, watched the kids and hubby stuff their faces with sweets while we watched a film this afternoon.  I did buy some almonds to have but decided that as I wasnt hungry I wouldnt eat them. :D

B - same as yesterday
L - a few dairylea triangles (still full from breakfast again)
T - roast pork with loads of crackling, cabbage, carrot and parsnip with gravy.  It is higher carb than I would usually have as I dont have parsnips and only have carrot if it is in the bags of salad I buy.  And it was bloody lovely!


Snacks - none

Drinks - 2 cups of tea and 3 pints water

Exercise - none

Joints - fingers a bit clicky today (might try a few days off tomatoes again)

Asthma - been fine today

I woke up stupidly early again at 5am and just dozed on and off until the kids woke up at 8.  I am definatly sleeping better (before 5am) and feeling a lot more energic during the day.

And You Call Me Unhealthy.........

Hiya

As you can see from my posts that I do eat a fair bit of veg and salad.  Last night my husband commented that low carb is just not healthy.  Uuuurrrmmmmm his normal daily food is cereal for breakfast, cheese sandwich and crisps for lunch and meat, chips and salad (forced to eat it) for tea, then when kids in bed he will eat chocolate and crisps.  And I am unhealthy!!!!!!!!!  Especially as he said this last night after eating pepperoni pizza so NO veg at all yesterday.  So, really, who is the unhealthy one?

Anyway...

B - bacon, fried egg, cherry tomatoes and mushroom with stilton on top.  Here is a picture (the egg is black as I used the frying pan after making the kids pancakes this morning)
 
L - nothing, was full after late breakfast (went to Lidl before making breakfast)
T - turkey mince with tin toms, onion, pepper and celery with salad.  Sprinkled stilton on top.  I froze half for another day.  Here is  picture.


Snacks - none

Drinks - 2 cups of tea and 2 pints of water

Exercise - none

Joints - aching fingers, wonder if it because I have eaten tomatoes over last few days.

Asthma - been ok today

I had my wine last night and not got a clue what time I went to bed but I was awake at 7.30am so got up.  I like getting up early on a weekend as it means I can get to Lidl before their offers sell out! lol 

I did have a bit of a wobble last night.  Got as far as opening fridge before thinking 'I am not even hungry so why am I looking for food'.  I then shut the fridge door and went back to my wine. :D

I hope you are having a great weekend.

Confession Time

Evening all

A confession.  I had a glass of wine last night, ok it was 2.  And I will be having a glass of wine tonight, ok, will be at least 2!  I also havent eaten enough veg today or drank enough water so not the best day but again, not actually cheated (wine doesnt count! lol)

Weigh in - 10st 4lbs (2lbs loss since Monday - whoo hoo)

B - homemade yoghurt
L - ham and cheese
T - omelette pizza topped with tinned toms, cheddar, onion, home grown pepper (sadly not grown by me but I have been given the plant so hopefully I can keep it alive), ham, pepperoni, stilton and mozerella.  I love stilton on pizza, makes it really tasty.  I took the picture before taking it off the pan today as I knew it would get a bit demolished in the process and i was right.


Snacks - none

Drinks - 3 cups of tea and 1 pint of water

Exercise - 30 minute brisk walk

Joints - fine today

Asthma - thats been ok today as well :D

We ended up watching a film last night so didnt get to bed until 12.30am!  I woke up at 5am :o  But did go back to sleep, phew.  And I have not been tired at all today, still got lots of energy, did have earlier anyway! :P

Day 11

Good Evening

Well, another day down.  I havent drank enough water today or eaten enough veg/salad.  Just been so busy.  But I havent cheated either.  Usually when I am this busy I would grab a handful of the kids sweets everytime I pass the fridge but not anymore. :D

B - homemade yoghurt
L - ham and cheese
T - gammon with salad

Snacks - none

Drinks - 2 cups of tea and 2 pints water

Exercise - 30ish min brisk walk in the cold :(  Where did summer go?????

Joints - fine today but not eaten tomatoes for a few days until tea today.

Asthma - fine all day but this evening started feeling wheezy.  Think all the sorting of dusty stuff has put dust in air.  Need to clean the house thoroughly.

Another evening of staying up until 11pm last night.  And slept until 5.45am.  Getting better.  :D

I am planning on walking on the school run next week, which upset the kids a lot but it will mean another 40 mins brisk walking and 1 hour slow walking with the kids! lol

Rain Doesnt Make Me Walk Faster :(

Evening all

Been a funny day weather wise, lots of bright sunny spells followed by lots of rain.  Went for my walk and it was bright sunshine and got to the beach and it started raining.  I walked as fast as I could back and got back the same time as yesterday.  So I didnt walk any faster in the rain, funny that, you would think I would as I really dont like getting wet! lol

B - homemade yoghurt (this is higher carb than I usually have which is why I have never worked out the actual carbs but didnt effect me before so will see how I go on it)
L - ham and cheese salad
T - toad without the hole, brocolli and green beans

Snacks - none (even resisted the biccys in my meeting this morning :D)

Drinks - 1 cup of tea (no sugar), 4 pints water

Exercise - 35 minute brisk walk

Joints - fingers aching this morning but it was a bit chilly so to be expected

Asthma - fine until I sorted more dusty stuff out

I managed to stay up until 11pm last night and woke up at 5.30am but did manage to get back to sleep so that was good.  I think I need to try to go to bed at 11pm and hopefully will sleep until around 6am.  Although I could do with a nap now.......................................

Almost saw the sun rise....

Hello

Another good day here.  I managed to walk to the beach this morning.  Not quite the time for the sun rise but this is what I saw when I got to the promanade.

 
Hopefully I will be able to see a few nice sun rises in the next week or so.
 
B - cheese omelette
L - ham salad
T - chicken in fajita seasoning with salad
 
Lots of salad today :D
 
Snacks - none
 
Drinks - 1 cup of tea (1/2 teaspoon sugar - really no point so wont bother tomorrow), 4 pints water
 
Exercise - 35 minute brisk walk
 
Joints - fine today
 
Asthma - 1 attack (dont know what caused it)
 
After saying about my sleeping being better yesterday, I seem to have a problem with it.  I was very tired by 10pm last night so went to bed.   Well, I was awake and wanting to get up at 5am :o  This is not good!!!  I couldnt get up as I didnt want to wake everyone else up and really, 5am, not a good time to get up.  But I didnt go back to sleep so have been awake since 5.  The problem is that I am now getting tired and I dont want to go to bed until 11 really as I would like to sleep to as close as 6.30am as possible.  
 
Think I had better start doing stuff and wake myself up a bit. :D
