Mmmmmm Hairy, Yum, Bork


Another good day, its been sunny and we have walked quite a lot. I have had 25 carbs and really enjoyed my food.

B - strawberries, grapes and greek yogurt
L - ham, chicken and cheese omelette
T- chicken wrapped In  bacon covered in cheese with huge salad

I am now having real pork scratchings bought from the weigh shop. They are so nice but I just cant eat the hairy ones, one had more hair than my hubby!!!!!!!! :o

 I just hope the bucket of salty pork scratchings wont effect weight loss, they should be carb free.  Best stop eating them soon.

Have a good one.

I Want, l want, I want


OMG OMG OMG I stumbled across a threat on mse the other day about dehydrators.  Looked quite interesting, dried fruit for hubby and kids to snack on, dog treats and of course sun dried tomatoes. But then I startrd looking into it more. You can dehydrate veg, keep in bag in cupboard and use when needed. How easy is that when bunging stuff in slow cooker. I also have the issue of my 2 freezers being full, I wanted to buy the 5kg of onions in lidl but no room to store them, a dehydrator could solve that problem. So will be hinting lots to hubby, he has 2 months before my birthday to get the hint. That is unless I succumb to temptation and order it myself ;-)

B - strawberries,  blueberries and greek yoghurt
L - pulled pork and cheese omelette
T - roast beef with lots of veg and I will be having a small slice of hubbies dessert as tomorrow is 20 carbs and lots of walking.

As I may have mentioned by husband doesnt like low carb, he preferes low fat. Last week he was having homemade fruit smoothie for breakfast, cheese omelette for lunch and same tea as me except with a small amount of potatoe. He lost 4lbs. His heartburn totally stopped. Yesterday he had a bread roll and his heartburn got bad. If that doesnt convince him to cut down his carbs (mainly bread) I dont know what will!!!!!

Wish me luck for tomorrow

Whats Going on With That.........

Evening all

Busy day today but a good one until this evening........

B - ham, cheese, onion and tomato omelette
L - apple and greek yoghurt
T - hubby made carby chicken but I had salad with mine

Then this evening,........ wine then shoved a bar of chocolate in my gob. When I used to eat choc I would savour every bite, let it melt on my tongue.  But tonight I barely tasted it I ate it so fast. So, normal food I am enjoying more as not filling up on tasteless carbs, chocolate I am not enjoying as I inhale it to quick.  Somethjng wrong there.......

Pork Pork Pork Pork

Evening all

I had the pulled pork for tea, I cheated and used a shop bought bbq sauce,  naughty me, but was very nice.

B - apple with greek yoghurt
L - spicy sausage, cheese and onion omelette
T - pulled pork and salad and here it is

I have walked on school run and taken dogs out this evening and hubby joined me. This is good as he needs to walk more but bad as I cant brisk walk or start running, but it was good and the kids enoyed it as well, especially as we walked passed and paused by the park. I am hoping they will come every evening, well I can hope cant I?

Have a good evening.

Shooting Stars


I am sure you can wish on a shooting star for luck. Well both me and my daughter have 10 of them.

Here is the shooting stars on my daughters nails, which would have been easier to do if she stopped fidgeting.

And here are mine

You cant really seen in photos but the pale blue, in light turns sparkly pink. I love them, so pretty ;-)

Have a wonderful bank holiday weekend.
