Busy Busy busy


I have not stopped the last few days, walked more, ate delicious food and crocheted.  Am trying to get a few sales on my facebook page to get a few pennies so been none stop crocheting.

Anyway, am still plodding along, not losing weight but have cut out alcohol now so hopefully next weigh in will be good. I have lamb on slow cooker for tea and lots of veg to go with it. Cant wait.

Still not started running but keep meaning to lol. If I dont lose with no alcohol I will have.

Have a good day

Yay Back to School......

Evening all

There are several reasons why I am plesed the kids are back at school.  Firstly I can clean and it stays clean and tidy, for a little bit anyway. Secondly we can get back into a routine, walking on school runs, dogs getting more structured exercise. And thirdly, and most importantly my lunch looks like this

And not burnt like this because I had to referee yet another fall out, and trust me, that was the good side


B fruit salad with greek yoghurt
L chicken, cheese and onion omelette
T sausages with cheesey cauli and broccoli

Lots of walking today and hopefully rain will stay off for more tomorrow.

Back On Track

Good evening

Yay, 1lb gone already. :D

B fruit salad with greek yogurt
L bbq, I had burger (no bun), pork belly, sausages, beef, turkey and loads of bbq veg
T still full from bbq. But I do have ham, chicken pieces and coleslaw in the fridge, as well as nuts and pork scratchings so will ge good

I have also managed 3 walks today. I did plan to go to beach and start the couch to 5k but my youngest came with me so we went to the park instead. And i had to wake the lazy dogs up for the 3rd walk! I don't think they are committed to me losing weight as much as I am ;-)

How Much!!!!!!!!

Evening all

So I weighed.  Wish I hadnt. I have put on 6lbs!!!!! I really hope some of that was from bloating, felt like I had a beach ball attached to my belly last night. Must try harder to lose now.

B - fruit salad with greek yogurt
L - picked at some of last nights left overs
T - bbq, I had salad, lots of bbq'd veg, belly pork, bit of beef and bit of turkey.

Hope my belly goes down, my jeans were feeling a bit tight today. Been considering the couch to 5k challenge. Will think about, but have heard good things.

Home Again


We are now home. Had a lovely week and a bit away, ate lots of yummy (mostly low carb) food. I really enjoy eating fruit so will continue. I quite liked the drinking but that, however, will drastically reduce.  So weigh in tomorrow, i am sure I have put on weight but am hopeful its not too much. I did a fair bit of walking so that will help.

Today has been a bit bad, omelette for breakfast then nothing until tea which was lots of different party food. I did have a few chicken nuggets and spring rolls and onion rings but also had meat and salad. Although I am feeling rather bloated but am putting that down to the 2 platefuls I had :o

30 seconds, better than none

Evening all

As you may know from previous posts I have a boxer pupy and a 6 year king charles.  For about 2 weeks I have been walking them together on a double lead. Seperatl8 they are ok on lead, toghether they are not. Today we had a breakthrough, they both walked nicely together at the same time for 30 seconds. Will aim for a minute tomorrow lol

B - fruit with greek yogurt
L - bacon with tomato, cheese and onion omelette
T - had breakfast and lunch late so not eaten yet, will be having nuts later no doubt.

I am really loving the fruit, hadnt realised how much I missed it.

I have just had the best tea. I was given the recipe by a fellow low carber and netmum, Cheryl. It is broccoli and cauliflower cheese. Cook the broccoli and cauliflower,  drain, mix in salami or pepperoni and crumbled garlic and herb boursin, I used garic and herb philly and I mixed in half a chopped onion. When in oven dish cover with grated cheese and bake. Mmmmmmmmm delicious.

B - fruit salad with greek yogurt
L - tomato, onion, ham and cheese omelette
T - a rather sad looking gammon with the broccoli and cauliflower as above and here is a picture

I didnt even feel envious of the takeaway pizza the family just guzzled in front of me. And whilst hubby is moaning he has eaten too much, his belly hurts, I am feeling positively angelic.

Do try the recipe and if you have any variations to it, then do let me know.

Rain Stopped Play


So it rained a lot today, we didnt go for our long walk and didnt really go out much at all. Its not meant to rain as much tomorrow so am hoping for lots of walks or at leadt one long walk.

B - huge fruit salad with greek yoghurt
L - ham and cheese salad
T - hunters chicken with peas and coleslaw

Not felt hungry today so maybe it was the walking yesterday rather than the fruit sugars making me feel hungry.

Night night

Fruit - Good or Bad


Due to still not losing that last half a stone I have decided to up my carbs and add fruit. Still only good carbs, well except a bit of wine ;-) and see if I put on and then after a bit maybe drop down again and see if I lose.

B - huge bowl fruit salad - apple, pineapple, melon, grapes, orange, strawberries
L - minted lamb chop with cabbage, onion, carrots and peas
T - ham with lettuce, tomato, coleslaw and cheese

And I am now going to have some cheese and apple and maybe a few nuts. Hungry today, maybe it was all the walks I went on or the fruit sugars. Hhhhmmmmmm

Rum has no carbs does it

Good evening

Funny old day.  Went to a new supplier for dog food today, for £20 I got 20lb minced with bone chicken, 10lb mince, 10lb tripe and 10lb chunks of steak, dogs eat better than us. And they gave us 5 huge livers for free and 4 huge bones with loads of meat on free. My dogs are very happy today lol although note to self, dont give bones on carpet as it will get covered in blood. I have cleaning to do tomorrow!!!!!

I have decluttered lots. And found out I didnt get the job I wanted. Maybe a time to change career......

B - tomato,  onion and cheese omelette
L - ham
T - chicken in a sweet chilli sauce with salad.

Was lovely.

Off to enjoy my rum and diet coke.
