Day 19 - Friday - KP and I have walked every morning this week so that's 25 kms! We don't walk together on the weekends but I might take a stroll this afternoon.
Breakfast - Bakes beans on wholemeal toast.
Cup of tea. Fresh squeezed orange juice.
Lunch - Lavash wrap with turkey, cranberry and salad.
Snack - left over fruit salad.
Dinner - Steak, potato salad and green salad.
This is Angus, half was through his barbecued T-bone steak.
I think I've done really well this week - I basically haven't needed to snack between meals, certainly not like I used to. I would usually hit the fridge as soon as I walked in the door and grab some cheese or slices of ham. Cheese - how I have missed it! I could go through half a 250 gm block in a few minutes, slicing it off and downing it like pieces of chocolate. Not any more! Rice crackers and a bit of salsa make a good snack - carrot sticks would be even better. The weight loss will be very gradual because I have not cut out carbs but I think you have to do what your body tells you. I like a big breakfast so there is no point trying to survive on one slice of toast or 1/2 a cup of cereal. I wouldn't make it to 10 o'clock. Likewise at lunch, I wouldn't survive on crackers topped with tomato. I need something substantial. The lavash wraps are filled with salad and a few slices of meat and they are filling. Someone remarked the other day that there is heaps of sugar in the fruit I am eating. I said I'd rather eat a tub of watermelon, rockmelon, kiwifruit and passionfruit which has no preservatives in it than a diet muesli bar which has fake sugar in it plus God knows what else. And if you can't eat fresh fruit and enjoy it, then I think I'd rather be fat!
I generally am feeling better in myself. I don't feel bloated and lets just say, I am extremely regular! Lol! But I do look forward to each meal. Not sure what will be on the menu tonight and Sunday night - Angus' whim!
Kirby is home from Uni for 2 weeks so we are a family of 4 again! Bri and Kirby have been counting the sleeps - funny girls! They genuinely miss each others company, which is lovely.
Okay, the sun is shining here and my washing machine is beeping to tell me another load is ready for hanging out - that's a novelty! I think there is rain on the way though - just hope Angus can get our lawns mown before it arrives.
I might also get my tomato seeds in some seed raising mix - I bought the Burke's Backyard magazine with Rhonda Jean's first article in it and there were free heritage tomato seeds with the mag.
Cheers for now - Joolz
