Results happen over time not over night.
Like the picture says, remember every day is an opportunity, I had a really good day yesterday and would love every day to be so easy but I know it won't be, it won't stop me doing everything I can to make it so.
Food wise this was how my day looked, leftovers as bubble and squeak, saving the pennies.
The I made a delicous spag bol which isn't usually my thing but I'm experimenting, added a couple of oxos to calm the tomato flavour down and I got a good 5 portions out of it.
Instead of spaghetti with it I had 'boodles', now this was sent in my shopping as a substitute for courgetti, I'm so glad it was because I was really impressed.
I'd most definitely buy it again, yes it's cheaper to do your own but this was great for quickness, 3 minutes in the microwave.
I am tempted to try making my own though, I've got one in the cupboard and a small spiraliser, or I think I have a julienne hand held slicer thing somewhere. Here's a good page I've found telling you how to make your own; Butternut Squash Pasta | Food with Feeling
Then for my tea, I enjoyed a potato salad that was use by 1st, with some serrano ham, cucumber and spinach, so good.
I think yesterday was the first time in a while I hit my 5 a day! I also had a couple of black coffees, not done that in a long time either, and yeah I know caffiene ain't great but surely it's better than red wine!
Other than food, it was a pretty quiet day, my UW appointment got rescheduled for Monday, I went out with Alfie twice, not for long though, I did enjoy Doctor Who last night, even if mom didn't! We were in bed by half 8 and I've been awake since half 2 which isn't great, I'm lying in bed typing at the minute because it's warmer and you never know I might drop off again but I doubt it.
Now I need to plan my meals for the weekend, see what's in the fridge and use according to use by dates, then I need to check out every thing I've got freezer and cupboards and do some meal ideas so that I don't have to order too much online and I save some money.
Off the top of my head I fancy;
Cod in butter sauce, mash and peas
Fish fingers ooo could have them with butter nut squash baked chunks
I'm sure there's a few frozen Marlies meals in there too, so goat curry as well as my own curries.
Jacket spuds could have one of the leftover spag bols on that
Sardines / Pilchards - I spotted them in cupboard yestrday, think I might have on toast for breakfast with an hardboiled egg mmm.
Yeah I will stand in the kitchen and make a list of as many meals as I can, when I get up out this warm bed anyway. I fancy a big mug of tea, that's the only downside I can think of to being single, no one ever makes me a cup of tea these days, moms not made me a cuppa for years!
Well looking forward to my day ahead, life feels good at the moment, let's keep that feeling going I say!
Mwah, luv ya
Love me x
