The food and stuff bit

As my last post was so long and photo heavy I thought I'd better save the normal stuff for a separate post! First up - no urge to binge today, so I seem at the moment to be handling the switch to maintaining in a fairly sane manner! Perhaps it was partly because such a large part of the day was taken up with something unusual and more interesting than the average Sunday and it distracted me?
Anyway, food today:
All bran with strawberries, plus one of my little cottage cheese griddle cakes (I made up a batch for M and couldn't resist checking they were still nice Evil_Grin Emoticons
Home-made veggie soup and a grilled veg sandwich - yum! Although I forgot the red onion so it could've been more yummy!

New Covent Garden fresh soup - Choc Full O' Beans! It was very nice but I didn't pick up the hint of chocolate - perhaps the spice was kicked up enough to hide it because I froze the soup? And some Nimble toast with laughing cow. I also tried adding a tiny bit of houmous to the soup after reading about that trick on a blog (can't remember where, sorry!) The houmous kind of dissolved into the soup, making it a little richer and more creamy but not significantly changing the flavour, which was good because the soup was nice on its own.

Protein bar and Go ahead apple and sultana slices in the morning, protein smoothie in the afternoon. I needed some extra fuel for the big walk again! My legs have been demanding to know WTF??? with all the heeaavy walking this weekend!!! I went into Coffee#1 for a refuel when I reached Chepstow and managed to have a black Americano without even considering a biscotti - points for me I think!
Weight today: 10 st 3.25 lbs (143.25 lbs) so I'm back where I was before the over-eating a couple of days ago, and maintaining for real starts now

Stay Healthy

  1. Hi Chrissie. Glad you're feeling saner now.

    That bean soup looks like the thickest soup I've ever seen! I've never heard of chocolate added to soup. I can slightly imagine it ... but I can think of many other things I'd prefer to have chocolate with than beans!

    Hope you are feeling good today.

    Best wishes,
