Lots of Lovely Food Today


I managed to make a minion mug warmer last night so hubby snacked alone! :D  Although I do have quite a lot of nuts that need eating...... Maybe they would have been a better breakfast.

B - bit of cheese, slice of ham and a pepperoni (in my defence, I was in a rush to get dd to her day trip to the forest)
L - half a yellow bell courgette with seeds scooped out and filled with pesto cream cheese, ham, toms and topped with normal cheese and roasted.  Gert lush!
T - salt and pepper basa with grilled tom and peas (yes I know, high carb for me but so very very nice)

Drinks - tea, coffee and squash

Exercise - 2 walks and 1 of them I jogged a bit (chasing after the kids in their scooters lol)

Joints - ok today

Asthma - ok

Well, I think I will get my crochet hook out and start another mug warmer whilst kids eating their tea, might watch a film with them after they have finished so lots more crochet to be done ;-)

Have a lovely evening

What to do with a Yellow Bell Courgette???

Evening all

Really good day today, was given peppers, cucumber, chilli, runner beans and a yellow bell courgette from my friends allotment.  Not a clue what to do with the courgette, either chop it up and roast with veggies or cut in half and stuff with something and cover in cheese, that will make 2 lunches.  Think I might cut in half and stuff.  Just need to find something to stuff it with.

B - stilton omelette with fried toms
L - ham and cheese with salad
T - mince and veg (very spicy, had a chilli in it)

Drinks - tea, coffee and water

Exercise - about an hour walking and will do another half hour in a bit

Joints - still achy

Asthma - ok today (I remembered my inhalers)

Worked hard this afternoon cleaning my car, inside and out.  The kids did well helping me (ok, I helped them, they did most of it) but still wore me out lol  Want to do stuff in garden tomorrow.  The rockery so that will involve me lifting lots of heavy stones and the kids getting all the grass/plants/weeds up and then me putting the heavy stones back!  Don't think I thought this through!!

A Good Start to the Day

Evening all

I really do think a lie in and then a cooked breakfast is a pretty good start to the day.  It did go downhill from there are I then went shopping and then did some gardening and housey stuff but my breakfast kept me going.

B - bacon with stilton on top, 2 fried eggs, handful of little tomatoes fried
L - ate breakfast late so no lunch
T - BBQ, we had burger (no bun), ribs, chicken, prawns and pork with salad.  I know the sauces on would have upped the carb count but I think I deserved it today after gardening :D

Drinks - tea and cider (last alcohol until Saturday :o, maybe)

Exercise - gardening and 1/2 hour walk

Joints - fingers aching but I am putting that down to gardening

Asthma - forgot my inhaler this morning so was a bit wheezy but after I remembered and then took my nose spray for hayfever I have been fine.

Last week of the school holidays, I need to work out what jobs the kids can do, must make use of the save labour while I have it.  Tomorrow we are shopping then the kids can clean my car (insert evil laugh here ;-D)

Back from Holiday :D

Evening all

So, holiday, 3 weeks :o, am pleased to be home.  I have put on weight, but not too much, I tried to be good but I did eat the occasional crisp and too many salted peanuts.  I tried to choose the best option as if I didn't have anything I would have craved it and eaten the worst.

This is the view I had from the first place we stayed (my sisters static)

He came back every morning for his breakfast.
Then we stopped at Bristol.  This is my favourite Gromit from our Gromit hunting.

And finally South Wales.  I was stood in the chalet when I took this, we really were that close to the beach.  Kids loved it.

So I managed lots of walking, mostly eating well (lots of salads and bbq's) with the occasional slip up of kfc (not the chips obviously but the chicken and coleslaw)

Need to get back on track now, so I will be posting on here.  House still a state but cant afford to do much so wont worry about it.
