I had an appointment at the doctor’s surgery at lunchtime today (a pill check) so I decided to walk into town later than usual and combine shopping with the appointment. It all worked out fine – apart from the bit where the heavens opened at precisely the right time that I couldn’t rush home, change into dry clothes and drive to the surgery in time for my appointment. So instead I walked to the surgery, as always arriving there early (I can’t help it – its pathological ;-) ) and in this instance very wet. Then the nurse was running late so I didn’t get in till 15 minutes after my appointment time. Sigh. And then had to walk home (still in wet clothes – the rain even penetrated my waterproof jacket) before I could have a late lunch. On the plus side, my blood pressure wasn’t bad – 100/60. I’m sure they used to weigh me when I had these pill checks but they didn’t this time or last time – I don’t know if that’s a change of policy, because I’m on a different pill, or what. Can’t say I object as I never liked stepping on scales fully dressed even without at least 8 pints of water soaking through my jeans!
Once all that was done it actually got quite bright here a few times, though the sun never actually made it into view.
Breakfast: Cottage cheese griddle cakes with defrosted summer fruit and ‘yoghurt cheese’ – natural low fat yoghurt strained until its even thicker than Greek yoghurt (I like it so thick you could eat it with a knife and fork ;-) ) followed by poached eggs – a deliberately large breakfast as I knew I’d be lunching late
Lunch: Quorn cottage pie with roasted carrot, green beans, broccoli & Brussels sprouts. As un-photogenic as always…. but it tasted good and it was just sitting in my freezer!
Dinner: Black bean soup with LC on pesto spelt bread
Snacks: Green monster smoothie with banana, peaches, a slice of lemon and a ton of lightly steamed spinach;
a new ‘bar’ I bought at Whole Foods Market last week,
Weight today: 10 st 1 lb (141 lbs). I think I look a little gaunt in the face below 10st so this is actually a good thing!!!
