Love Mondays I do...

20th August 2018
There is nothing in nature that blooms all year long.  So don’t expect yourself to do so either.

No weight loss for me this week, but that’s okay, I’ve still dropped 6lb in 3 weeks overall, I’m more than happy with that.  Plus I have gone way over my points this week, I guess I now know my tipping point!

Yesterday was a productive day though, proving eating well has given me some energy and enthusiasm back and that’s way more important than numbers on a scale.  I cleared my concrete shed out and my sister came round and helped me put some shelving units together, then I piled them high with my WW stock.  One was missing parts so they’re resending that today, then stage one of 2018 sort out is completed.  Last year was spent sorting inside the house out, this year it’s all about the outside.  I keep looking at the front garden and thinking that needs something doing to it, one step at a time. 

I finally had my chicken stuffed with blue cheese and wrapped in prosciutto, had it with rice and I made the mistake of buying an Uncle Bens microwave, I don’t like it, much rather have Tilda rice. Today I’m looking forward to my fish cake cob, I also plan to stay within my points better this week!

Need to spend some time with mom today as with all the shed work she got ignored for a good few hours yesterday, although when we did finally sit down we had a good night and an incident that okay might be seen as a different kind of ‘making memories’ but we laughed so much for all the wrong reasons, we’re surviving Alzheimer’s our own special way. 

Checklist for a healthy day today

Drink lots of water
Have a zero breakfast (or as low as possible)
Eat some fruit
Walk the dog twice (if he’ll go twice)
Get active by sorting the shed
Relax & rest

Right that’s my plan of action, moms just surfaced, Alfie’s lurking, time to get going. Here’s to working on a healthy life and having a very great day because it’s Monday and that’s my day off!

I do love Sundays

19th August 2018
It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself and to make your happiness a priority. It’s necessary.

Yay, it’s Sunday, my day of rest, not today though, I’ve got a busy day ahead, well that depends on what time the shelving units get delivered from B&Q, I’ve got a few hours in my office to get ready for next week’s meetings.  I spent another hour in my shed yesterday, got the old units off the wall, now to get rid of them which means a trip to the tip or a bit of a bonfire.  It’ll all be worth it when it’s done, nice organised shed where my stock is stored safely, only took me almost 14 years to get round to it!  If they don’t come till late, they’ll get put up tomorrow.

After having an hour in the summerhouse, we sat and watched a few movies yesterday - The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Rampage and Jurassic World, we really enjoyed them, it didn’t matter that mom struggled to keep up with the storyline because there was so much action to enjoy, she still likes to look at good looking lead men too!

I was just on Pinterest and cake across this recipe, worth checking out for a zero meal option https://bakingqueen74.co.uk/courgette-butternut-squash-lentil-bake/ if you’re reading this sis and fancy having a dabble, I’d like to try a slice :)

I’m putting off the food thing because I did have a wonderful dinner, but it was a good experience because it taught me my tastebuds have improved.  So I had fruit for breakfast – tick, lunch was a lo-dough wrap with chicken, smoked protein cheese and coleslaw, - tick, delicious too, and so filling, I left a bit, actually I wrapped it in up and put in fridge and ate it later.  Then I couldn’t decide on dinner, mom had fish fingers, egg and chips and I’ve been eyeing up a packet of Batchelors Chicken Super Noodles that have been in the cupboard for weeks and weeks, I thought they’d be about 13SP but they were 18SP, OUCH and you know what, I used to love these in my youth, they were tasteless, either they’ve removed some of the flavour or I’ve got better taste these days, the best thing on the plate were the eggs and peas.  Made me glad of eating well though, so here’s to day 21, I will definitely be having the blue cheese stuffed chicken breast today!  But then again, there’s been a lot of talk of a fish cake cob, I need one of these in my life too, decisions, decisions. 

I do solemnly swear to eat healthy today, gonna be lucky to get a stayed the same tomorrow let alone a loss, it’s all good though, I’m still tracking, every day won’t be great and that’s okay.

Right I’m off to make mom and me a cuppa, then I’ll walk Alfie and I’ll fetch the papers before getting on with everything else.  Whatever you have planned, enjoy your day, continue working on a healthy life and having a very great day because it’s Sunday YAY!

It's the weekend!

18th August 2018
It’s not about perfect, it’s about effort.  When you bring that effort every single day, that’s where transformation happens.  That’s how change occurs.

Yep, it’s morning!  It’s dark out there too, I’m up and ready for work though despite a disturbed menopausal night and getting out of bed like Gollum this morning.  I’m hoping if I continue to lose weight it may help some of these symptoms, time will tell.

Food wise I was silly yesterday skipping breakfast but I had no appetite, weird for me I know, I managed a banana around lunch time, then walked Alfie for a second time and talked myself into cooking my chicken dinner.  It took less than ten minutes, 2 yorkies (6SP), smash (4SP), peas, chicken, gravy (2SP), Aunt Bessie stuffing ball (2SP) sure did the trick though, I really enjoyed it except for the stuffing ball, first time Aunt Bessie has let me down I have to say. 

Because I skipped breakfast, I ended up with the munchies later so had a bag of WW crisps and a slice of bread with a bit of coleslaw and a snack size protein cheese which cost me a total of 7SP.  Early night followed which saved me from doing any more damage. 

Now to survive the weekend!  I’ve not thought food at all so I need to, maybe take something out of the freezer before I leave for work.   Don’t want to undo the good work so far.

I earned some FitPoints yesterday, two dog walks and I spent a couple of hours in the sheds doing some clearing, there’s still plenty to do but by the time it’s finished I’ll have some kind of order going on.  For someone who quite happily lives in chaos, I do love to see tidy and orderly, it really floats my boat.

Ooo back to food, I have chicken breasts in fridge, so I’m going to have them one of them stuffed with St Agur and wrapped in parma ham, probably with rice, nom nom, quick and easy too.  I also want potato waffles sometime this weekend, I could actually have them instead of the rice.  Mom would enjoy them too.  Now I could eat that now, potato is definitely something my stomach likes, potato cakes made with smash, dry fried and topped with an egg.  Easy comfort food, serve with peas, jobs a good un.

I’m wasting time on the internet, need to get a wriggle on. Right, time to get on and get stuff done, here’s to working on a healthy life and having a very great day because the weekends here and we need to focus on what we want as our goals, not what we want to eat in the moment of temptation.
