Anyway, the lack of sleep didn't help my eating behaviour yesterday but to be honest, when my sister turned up with a little cheese pie for me, it was a no brainer, that turned into breakfast/lunch, then vicky dropped off a home made apple pie so I had some of that for my dinner and a bowl of stew that I'd managed and will be mostly eating all day today, my loaf of bread that usually lasts me a week will be lucky to last the day!
Thankfully my members are doing as I say not as I do! Dave's lost a cracking 6lb this morning and a few that checked in with me yesterday had also had also had cracking good weeks.
The sweet and sour chicken never happened! I'd bought a jar of sauce to try, it was a budget range and I just tasted it before cooking and it wasn't nice so I'm afraid I wasn't wasting the chicken breasts on that. The stew on the other hand, is off the scale! Using the freezer stock again, that's where the beef was found and the carrots and onions were left from last weeks shop. Eggs for breakfast, how sad that the highlights of my day at the moment is food and sleep - wake, eat, sleep, repeat!
I know this isn't forever though, this month is particularly tough, looking forward to getting out and walking Alfie this weekend, looking forward to trying to make Christmas a little special for mom, I need to think about getting her a couple of gifts - any suggestions welcome! I know it sounds awful and that I'm wishing my life away but a part of me is looking forward to eventually getting my freedom back and the travels I will make, the British hills and mountains I will walk up, the coastlines I will walk, the places I will stay and the sunrises I will enjoy. Yeah this isn't forever.
I already feel lifted thinking about my favourite places, isn't the imagination amazing, see that house on the left of the road to the harbour, that's the one I'll buy when I'm rich ;) I've stayed in it a few times, mom and I have enjoyed Christmas's there, my brother and his wife joined us on year and it has wonderful memories. See dementia may be robbing her memories, but they haven't got mine!
