I was stuck in the house this morning waiting for a delivery of some technical piece of hardware thingamajig that will bring M’s PC back from the dead – all I was told was that it would come between 8 am and 6pm. I hate when they won’t even tell you if it’s going to be morning or afternoon! After yesterday’s walk (I think counting the castle exploration and a detour on the way home so I could show S the ostrich farm we probably covered 10 miles easily) I don’t know if I’d necessarily have wanted to walk today anyway, but not being able to choose is always so frustrating to me! Plus I generally do my main weekly shop for bulk items I can’t carry on my back on a Thursday (before the supermarket gets really annoying over Friday & the weekend…) so not only couldn’t I do that this morning, but I was constantly aware that I’ll be battling slow moving shoppers when I do go tomorrow. And (final complaint I
promise hope) when an important delivery is due I’m paranoid about going upstairs or using the bathroom in case I get caught out! He delivered them just after I started cooking my lunch, and to be honest I decided against walking or training then because I’ve had an upset stomach all day.
Frustration, combined with a bit of housework, made me eat a cookie this morning that wasn’t scheduled in my food plan. But it was gorgeous!!! The first time I made the recipe I used milk chocolate chips because the supermarket was sold out of the dark, but this time I managed to get what I wanted and OMG so much better! I don’t like the super-high cocoa chocolate, but dark is almost always better than milk in my opinion.
Breakfast: All bran with peaches
Lunch: I made a small (2 portion) vegetable soup so I could eat it chunky and fresh for a change. Had it with the usual nimble & laughing cow. It was PACKED with all the veggies-about-to-turn from my fridge!
Dinner: A very big salad with a few Quorn Hot & Spicy bites – like meatless spicy Chicken McNuggets. They weren’t as spicy as I’d hoped, but they were quite tasty and the texture was better than I thought it might be! It was quite filling as well, but I must admit I often find salads filling at the time of eating but not really satisfying longer-term so I expect I’ll end up trying not to eat a naughty supper!
Snacks: Porridge with soya milk and plain whey protein. Oatmeal raisin-choc chip cookie. Rock bun. Raisins and almonds – roasted in the oven then tossed with a little cayenne pepper & dried thyme
