I’ve felt pretty good all day today, even though the sky was grey and it was pretty dreary (though not actually raining). I must have lots more massages, they really agree with me!
I walked into town this morning to buy some wrapping paper and a birthday card for a family member who’s 40 on Sunday, and enjoyed my walk much more than I have been doing lately. This afternoon I was actually inspired to pop into the gym for a short time – 20 mins on a stationary bike. I haven’t use a bike for quite a while because I find my nether regions don’t take kindly to the seat (even with a padded seat fitted and a pair of padded shorts on me!) but I’ve decided to start small and build it up because I can’t really rely just on walking / ellipticisizing for ever! I can’t say I enjoyed it, but the time went quite quickly – we’ll see how my more delicate areas feel later!
Breakfast: All bran with peaches and a snack pack of raisins
Lunch: Vegetable soup with added beans and other veggies served with home-made quinoa bread (baked the second loaf today after leaving the dough in the fridge for 3 or 4 days and it was even better than the last one!) spread with a lovely citrusy-tasting Welsh goat’s cheese. Followed by a Cherry flavoured Muller Light yoghurt.
Dinner: Roasted Vegetable lasagne (made with my home-made lasagne sheets – did I mention they were partly made with wholemeal spelt flour? Much harder to work with, but it tastes just fine!) with salad and butternut squash ‘fries’
Snacks: ‘Overnight oats’ – wholegrain oatmeal soaked in soya milk for a few hours; half way through that time I added some frozen mango chunks and chia seeds, and when I was ready to eat it I added the seeds from a passion fruit. It was absolutely delicious!
And a plate of chopped bell peppers with a snack pot of roasted red pepper houmous. So pretty and really lovely!
Weight today: 10 st 4.25 lbs. I could wail and gnash my teeth, but I’m not too bothered after yesterdays oily & salty lunch!
